OUR moe­goes this week are the Bafana Bafana play­ers who went to FNB Sta­dium to get au­to­graphs from the Brazil­ian team.

They were so starstruck that they fol­lowed their op­po­nents all over the field, ad­mir­ing them. They stopped just short of ap­plaud­ing and ul­u­lat­ing.

We know that ul­u­la­tion is part of the cul­ture in many coun­tries in Asia, Africa and the Mid­dle East, but Bafana were there to play. The ul­u­la­tion should have been left to the fans.

Ku­dos to the Brazil­ian team, which tried to give fans a show of sorts de­spite the limp op­po­si­tion.

Lo­cal soc­cer play­ers need to learn to be pro­fes­sion­als.
