Malo  and welcome to Season 4 Episode 13 of Breakfast Bites, by  TeivovoSports.com – a wrap of Pasifika Peoples sports on this sunny and  warm Friday morning 13 January 2023, coming to you from paradise on the  180th meridian in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!

This is a special message for all sports fans, players and officials across all sports around the world – TeivovoSports.com  SUPPORTS ENDING VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN – this after UFC President, Dana  White came out publicly yesterday saying that he has no excuse for  slapping his wife at a New Year’s eve party, or slapping any woman for  that matter: “There’s no excuse and no defence for it no matter what,”  White said.

His  wife Anne issued a similar statement to the media, stating both she and  White were “drinking too much” and labeled the slap “out of character”  for the UFC president.

“Things  got out of control, on both sides,” she said. “We’ve talked this  through as a family and apologized to each other. I just hope people  will respect our privacy for the sake of our kids.”

In football – David  Beckham’s LA Galaxy contract has earned him more than US$488Million,  even after he left the Galaxy – thanks to two genius clauses.

The  former England captain shocked world football in 2007 when he left Real  Madrid to move with his family to Los Angeles, taking a massive hair  cut from US$29M per season in Spain to US$6.6M base salary in LA – a  whopping 70 per cent drop.

However,  Beckham negotiated a deal to ensure he took a percentage of all the LA  Galaxy’s revenue. Therefore he earned a cut of everything – from ticket  sales and sponsorships to every beer and hot dog sold.

That saw his earnings skyrocket to around US$260M across the five years.

So US$52M per year made Beckham one of the highest-paid footballers on the planet over 118 appearances and two MLS Cup wins.

Incredibly,  when he signed for LA Galaxy, Beckham inserted a clause guaranteeing  him the right to buy an MLS expansion team for only US$24M after he  retired.

The franchises are worth a lot more today, averaging out at US$594M in 2022 compared to US$38M in 2008.

So  overall David Beckham’s risky move to America 16 years ago on a budget  of US$6.6M per year that guaranteed him just US$33M, has returned more  than US$488M over his time at LA Galaxy and launching Inter Miami.

In sports Biz – AFL legend, Tom Brady is facing more than just lawsuits for his association with FTX.

According to court documents, the NFL legend is among the bankrupt crypto exchange’s largest individual shareholders with more than 1.1 million shares. His ex-wife and super model, Gisele Bündchen has more than 686,000 shares.

The value of Brady’s shares was previously estimated by Forbes as worth around US$45Million when FTX was valued at a staggering US$32Billion in January 2022.

Since then, FTX co-founder Sam Bankman-Fried has been charged with eight criminal offences relating to the collapse of FTX.

Greed, greed and more greed is the only thing that comes to mind.
