No one should be this stupid and stay in the gene pool. Of course exclusions apply you idiot. Other than your own total lack of understanding, name one thing exclusions do not apply to? How old are you? Do you have any comprehension skills at all? You flat out stated that oh no, they only get taxed on this or that, and UK tax system is just like the US. Right, because all of those same athletes are boycotting competing in the US, right? Oops, no they are not. Why is that? Why would they have no problems competing in the US if the US has the same tax system the UK? Which event did the IRS have to lift taxes on just so the foreign athletes would actually show up.

Which governing bodies of golf, athletics and tennis have had to fight with the IRS about the tax laws jeopardizing their respective sports. Oh wait, that happened in the UK not the US. 

You do understand what ENTIRE GLOBAL INCOME means don't you? Sound out the words, put them together. Entire + global + income. You can do it...maybe.

According to you, Britain has the same tax laws as the United States. Have these same athletes boycotted or complained about the US tax system? No. They most certainly have not. So now let's see if you can actually find the fault in your own logic if they've boycotted competing in GB but not boycotted competing in the US.

Let's see how long it's going to take you to figure out why even if you ignore the articles, the proof of the athletes actions show you to be wrong. When someone wanted evidence, got it, and STILL can't let go of their own false assertions, that's an idiot. 

I've clearly made my point and then some. I've also managed to show everyone what an lying, misrepresenting, wholly lacking-in-credibility person you are. Thanks for your assistance with that. Couldn't have done it without you.

But as the saying goes, "never argue with a fool, they will only drag you down to their level and beat you with experience" so since you've proved yourself a superb fool,  I'll leave you to argue with yourself. Have fun with that.

    "No one should be this stupid and stay in the gene pool."

    I agree, but I'm not the one who can't understand a sentence that's simple and clear enough to be understood by anyone who can read at an 8th grade level. I'm not the one who's stupid enough to use a sentence that very clearly says A and try to use it as evidence for B.

    I don't know why you don't understand it. Maybe you do, but you're just too embarrassed to admit that you didn't understand something so simple. Maybe you're one of those people who have trouble learning something when it conflicts with the reality you incorrectly imagine. Maybe you're just so stupid that you can't understand that simple sentence. Maybe you don't know what "proportion" means and you're too stupid it look it up.

    Maybe, just maybe, it will help if you take baby steps. Tell us if see a difference between the sentence you think proves your point and the same sentence with some words removed:

    "tax rules mean he would be paying tax not just on his earnings at the meeting but on his entire global income"
    "tax rules mean he would be paying tax not just on his earnings at the meeting but on a proportion of his entire global income"

    If you see a difference congratulations. If not, maybe you can find a 13 year old to explain it to you.

      Adding my two cents late to this story but unlike US winners or non US winners in most parts of the world who have options of setting up trusts etc to protect their identies this man may not have that option. And yes he should pay taxes!

      Understand what Sully is saying regarding any lottery winner being at risk. Locally there are cases where people who won big on pick 3 and 4 lottos got killed or injured for their winnings.
