As if being booted out in a humiliating manner from the World Cup was not enough, the English football team is now in hot water, courtesy two of its BlackBerry toting players. First off, defender Ledley King allegedly clicked a picture with his Berry of his teammates relaxing with beers and cigars after the 4-1 drubbing by Germany and shared it with his friends. Then fellow defender Ashley Cole compounded matters by posting, “I hate England and the f***ing people” as his status message on his BlackBerry messenger. Needless to say, both found their way into the media or more accurately, The Sun.
As the excreta hits the fan, we reckon it won’t be long before Fab Capello outlaws BlackBerries from the dressing room too (he dumped Twitter, remember?). You can read the complete stories here and here.
