Cristiano Ronaldo Winning the Ballon d’Or Will Make the Award Even More Meaningless

Posted on 30 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

How important is the Ballon d’Or, really? Cristiano Ronaldo cares so much about it only because he always gets to stand on the podium while Lionel Messi gets to hold the trophy and smile to the cameras. However, no player is remembered to his greatness is measured by how many times he picked up these awards. More

Posted on 15 Dec, 2013, by in Soccer

Cristiano Ronaldo Proves Again What a Huge Douchebag he is

Posted on 4 Dec, 2013, by in Miscellaneous, Soccer

You aren’t going to convince Cristiano Ronaldo fans about anyone else being the best in the world. The problem isn’t with his football, it’s the man’s ego, that seems to be unsatiable and ever expanding, reaching a new high (or low), announcing that he’ll open a Museum on the island of Madeira, where he grew up, dedicated to… Cristiano Ronaldo of course.

We might hear from Cristiano Ronaldo time and time again that he doesn’t care about awards, only about success with Real Madrid. However, he usually contradicts himself by talking about himself, about Sepp Blatter, about FIFA and the Ballon d’Or.

A hat trick and another assist later, no one was even thinking about the Portuguese star anymore. More
