    I don't understand.... couldn't he be a much better witness and reach more people more effectively by being a professional athlete than knocking on doors?

    He gave it up but not before he got a nice nest egg.

    I wonder if he wanted to get baptized and they would not unless he quit football?

    "Check the truth on JW Facts before you join this cult mate. Read up the ugly history of this organization before you buy their propaganda and preaching of cooked up doctrines and prophesies. This cult has a history of 100% failed prophecies in the last 134 years."

    Here's what I posted lets hope it stays and Jason.W reads it.

    He's old news now! Replace that dude's headline with, "Richard White Quits Knocking on Doors as Jehovah's Witness After Going on Machete Rampage in New Orleans Airport".

    I guess he will get old & grey, but broke ? I doubt..... If they paid him $10million for one year !! ....Woweee... and they say that British footballers are overpaid ......Talk about quitting while you are ahead...
    We had a footballer on his way to brilliant things in Britain back in the sixties/seventies who quit to Pioneer as a dub. his name was Peter Knowles. I found this song about him on Youtube , by Billy Bragg, which I found interesting . The graphics are a bit before his time though.

    Wow thanks for postingbluesbrother I think the grimm graphics were either made by a fan or billy if he refuses to waste hundreds (of thousands on fancy companies). I guess they kind of speak about the grimmness he will face as opposed to the glamorous life of a footballer, the pics looked post war - old bomb sites perhaps coventry? Do you know what became of him?

    💓 billy bragg by the way, song made me bit tearful

    Here`s the other side of the coin.

    All-Australian defender Alex Rance capped a stellar season by claiming Richmond`s best and fairest last night at Crown Palladium .

    " If I thought football was going to impact on my family ,my beliefs ,or my relationship with my wife ,then I would very seriously think about leaving the game." Rance said after signing his new deal.

    Alex Rance is a Jehovah`s Witness

    " But I`m very happy with the decision I made and I feel it`s the right decision "

    It wouldn`t have to do with the extra thousands of dollars he extracted from his club would it ?

    Alex Rance had previously stated before re-signing , he was considering giving up his football career to go full time pioneering as a minister of Jehovah`s Witnesses .

    So the bottom line is he thought the monetary value was far more worth than the spiritual value by sticking to his faith.

    Jehovah`s Witnesses frown on putting people on pedestals High profile footballers are put on pedestals. And Alex Rance is no exception .This is especially so in Victoria Australia , and by extension the rest of Australia.

    And neither are the Williams sisters nor Prince , however if an ordinary rank and file member with no celebrity status , of the Jehovah`s Witnesses were to do the same thing they would be before a Judicial Committee and if they did not change they would be excommunicated /disfellowshipped such is the double standards of this religion.

    This Just In: Worilds' first day serving at Bethel (Fishkill) was some time this week! I heard from a trusted source that is in his circuit in North Carolina. I guess his mother is a JW, so he's continuing in the religion of his birth.
