He’s one of the top 5 best players in the last 40 odd years of the modern game.Really bothers me how this show and Ch 7 in general always introduce Carey as the 'best player in the history of the game'.
This really bothers me.
Firstly he isnt.
Secondly this is hotly contested.
Thirdly it is very disrespectful to other greats of the game.
The only thing Carey seems to have over other legends of the game is a good PR manager and a high media profile.
I seriously wonder if this 'intro' is written in to Carey's contract.
I know Ch 7 have a tendency to exaggerate their coverage by using words like 'superstar' and 'elite' every 5 seconds - but their deliberate lionisation of Carey is a bridge too far.
I am not saying Carey wasnt a very good player - but 'best ever' is a seriously long stretch.
It’s just show business when they introduce players like that on tv panels.
Nothing more nothing less.
