players DO get some space and freedom in Brazil if they deliver the goods. If Ronaldinho delivered the goods (goods justifying his 1 million a month salary of course) then he wouldnt even need to train. People would let he take a whore to the field and ******** her in the ass in front of the entire stadium, while drinking cachaça, and everybody would laugh, pat him in the head and forgive him. if the player DOESNT deliver the goods however, Brazil is the worst place probably. Fans will literally attack the player, throw coins and money bills at him, boo their own player every time he touches the ball, sometimes one or two crazy lunatics will even engage in corporal fight with the player! (outside the stadium, of course) Or throw some rocks in his car. when Adriano was delivering the goods at Flamengo, Flamengo fans didnt care he was photographed with an AR-15 at the side of a drugdelaer. In fact, even if the media discovered he was part of the Comando Vermelho or PCC, and had personally assassinated a few children, he would still be forgiven. Now... when he started playing badly, the fans quickly turned against him and his spell at Flamengo ended.
