is donating a weeks salary to the SEAsia appeal and wants all other Premiership footballers to do the same. Some clubs are making a donation and hope that others follow suit

Mmmm. David Beckham springs to mind.How much did that play fort thing in their grounds cost or the kids christening recently?

It's such a drop in the ocean for them (but still a wonderful gesture), but a weeks wages for a Prem footballer will make soooooooooo much difference to the fundraising efforts. Well done Dwight !

Well done Dwight. Lets hope the others follow his lead.

I would guess at the average weekly wage for a Prem player is around £25k.

I intensely disliked Dwight Yorke until about 30 seconds ago. Now I think he is my fave player in the premier league. God on him, lets hope some of the other multimillionaires follow suit.

Can't say I actively disliked him. Didn't really have a view one way or the other. But now. What a star

Bearing in mind Man Utd is the biggest 'business' football club, Alex Ferguson is only giving £100,000 frim the whole club!!! I know it all helps - was just a little surprised considering he wouldn't think twice on spending 20million for a player!!
Good on Dwight and the rest of the footballers/clubs giving donations.
