Bout time someone said something sensible.

If I was offered £100k a week to score for Tottenham or £300k a week to score for someone else (against Tottenham or for a rival potentially!) It'd be the £100k a week at Tottenham. Every. Single. Time.

I'd feel dirty scoring and winning points for a team that isn't Tottenham.
Yeah right. Money talks. It hasnt happened to you dude. If it does happen, you will have mixed thoughts. It wont be Every. Single. Time

If Tottenham never picked me up as a kid. Say Fulham did. AND Tottenham didn't want to sign me.
If Tottenham were in the 4th tier.
If I wasn't getting in the team.

There are circumstances yes. But in the current situation, I would not leave Spurs for more money.
They already earn more in a year than the majority of people do in a lifetime.
£100k a week is £5.2m a year. The national average is £27k a year. That's 192 years of earnings in one year.
I would feel fucking dirty taking more than that to not play for the club I love.
