It's pretty clever. Look at the replies...more than a few folks took the bait. Jones' wife gave birth on May 31. He took a week off and was back to play the Costa Rica match on 6/7. The World Cup ended on 7/15 and he returned late last week...I'm not sure how many days he cut his vacation short by but it's not like he sacrificed weeks. I appreciate his sacrifice both as an Englishman and as a United supporter, but the situations aren't particularly comparable.
