Absolute rubbish.

Why should doing it for money make it more worthy than anything else? The lame excuse 'just doing my job' has been used for all sorts of travesties.

You should go help that guy who wants to bolt all of Buffalo for his TAFE group, Kieran. After all, it's his job to make all his clients safe and anyone else is just playing, eh?

No one there is curing cancer or bringing peace to the Middle East, it's all 'playing sport'. Some just need more help playing their sport because they're not as good at it, so they pay poorer, stronger people to make it easier. Some don't. The two have clashed.
