Why do footballers spit so much?

Why do footballers spit so much, times and amount wise? Are they as a bunch more prone to some sort of chest complaint? Other sportsmen engaged in twice the physical effort don't do it, so is it a lack of a decent upbringing or what. Just watching the Spurs v Everton game and Everton are winning seven gobs to four at the moment. Actually that's quite low thinking about it.

They're getting rid of the taste of the illgotten money they get paid for being actresses and Nancy boys and misbehaved out of control children.

Shame that the rugby union aren't running the football, they would soon toe the line.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Could it be to show their (Dis)respect for the fans who pay stupid money to see games, so that the players can earn stupid money?

Vigorous exercise will lead to vigorous breathing. This, in turn, will loosen the foul coating of mucous in our lungs and deposit it in our airways. So a cough and a spot clears it.
If you've ever been into long distance running or other r activity that requires a long duration of heavy breathing (stop it!) you'll notice as your fitness and training Increases this phenomenon disappears. As footballers only run for very short distances their lungs don't get the chance to completely clear. So every time they have to put in a bit of effort 'cos the boss is watching they start coughing and spitting.

QED

I'm not signing anything.

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home, and the other is to pursue something - a landscape, people, an exotic place. Certainly finding a place that you like or discovering something unusual is a very sustaining thing in travel.

Cyclist and joggers do it all the time, disgusting habit IMO, not keen on the spitting either

Come on lads, the answers are a bit one sided so far. Doesn't anybody enjoy the sight of Mr Rooney rolling one around the end of his tongue before letting fly?

I hear what you say Spacerunner but they are even at it whilst waiting to come onto the field as a substitute. Surely they aren't that unfit!

Personal Aire
I used to watch our village team playing football every week when I was a young gal, never noticed them spitting.
I think it only came about in the 80-90´is, and then Miss Williams started shouting (or huffing) when playing tennis and all the kids had to copy.

Most people having coughs and expectorating don't gob it out all over the place. It's not necessary.

Not the Nine O'Clock News did a Gob of the Month sketch featuring footballers. Funny, but disgusting. Can't find it online unfortunately.
