Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Edgar Davids is in control here. Life in the Championship doesn’t seem to suit him too well. He signed with Crystal Palace this season after leaving Ajax and hasn’t been able to find the form which made him a star at Juventus and Barcelona. His struggles have lead to frustration which blew over in training after a fellow Palace player yelled at him for giving up the ball.
Tempers boiled over when Bennett, on loan from Nottingham Forest, blasted the veteran for giving the ball away in a practice session.
Davids, who joined the Eagles in August, took exception to the criticism and squared up to the defender.
“He went over to Bennett, grabbed him and started screaming ‘I’m the boss around here’.
“Everybody was stunned and nobody quite knew how to react – before a few of the other lads then jumped in and pulled them apart.
Davids doesn’t have time to Tony Danza with Bennett. There’s no question about who’s the boss. It’s the guy with the Rec-Specs. Just ask Kurt Rambis. MC Dr. Geek will second him on that.
The former Dutch international tested positive for steroids back in 2001 while with Juventus. Maybe he’s got some leftover roid rage. Perhaps he’s dipping in them again in a desperate effort to get his juju back. It’s likely that he’s just crazy. Louis van Gaal didn’t call him The Pitbull for nothing. Regardless Bennett should have manned up and dropped him Jhoon Rhee style.
If you’re going to go down for something, the least you can do is go out in a blaze of glory like Maurice Clarrett. Former Vikings head coach Mike Tice scalped a bunch of tickets for what? A bucket of week-old Taco Bell shrimp and a pink slip. Let Robbie Earle show you how it’s done.
Here’s where things get interesting. The women, all wearing orange dresses as the Dutch do, were part of a guerrilla marketing campaign by Bavaria Beer. The women showed up at the Netherlands-Denmark game and were promptly arrested by FIFA? Is that like getting arrested at Disney World?
The models were detained and questioned by FIFA and police who informed them that “ambush marketing” is illegal and punishable by six months in jail. One can only assume FIFA jail is having to service Sepp Blatter and Jack Warner in some Swiss ice palace in the Alps.
It should be noted that Bavaria Beer is not an official sponsor of the 2010 McDowell’s Meisterbrau RC Cola BP Sorny World Cup. The dresses didn’t have any logo on them but they come with every purchase of Bavaria.
Bavaria’s excellent response?
“Fifa doesn’t have a monopoly on the colour orange.”
Maybe so but shart brown is the official color of the World Cup.
Enough. We give you video of these brave, intrepid women unlike others who tease you with words and pictures.
It won’t be long before these martyrs take their place in the pantheon of South African heroes alongside Steve Biko, Oliver Tambo and Nelson Mandela.
