Beckham = Spoiled-Bitcham?

Well, that's certainly the impression I got after reading an excerpt from Grant Wahl's "The Beckham Experiment" in SI this week. In the role of deposed LA Galaxy captain and befuddled teammate is Landon Donovan. ACTION...
"All that we care about at a minimum is that he committed himself to us," Donovan said. "As time has gone on, that has not proven to be the case in many ways—on the field, off the field. Does the fact that he earns that much money come into it? Yeah. If someone's paying you more than anybody in the league, more than double anybody in the league, the least we expect is that you show up to every game, whether you're suspended or not. Show up and train hard. Show up and play hard. Maybe he's not a leader, maybe he's not a captain. Fair enough. But at a minimum you should bust your ass every day. That hasn't happened. And I don't think that's too much for us to expect. Especially when he's brought all this on us."
