Daniel Brigham: Michael Clarke’s wrong decision  Daniel Brigham: Michael Clarke’s wrong decision
Daniel Brigham: Michael Clarke’s wrong decision Michael Clarke has unexpectedly left Australia’s tour of New Zealand to fly home. Is his girlfriend about to give birth? Did a close family member receive some bad news? Is he mentally exhausted? No. He’s flying back because his partner, the model Lara Bingle, is pursuing legal action over publication of a half-naked photo of her in a shower, taken by an ex-boyfriend years ago. Wow. Did not see that excuse coming. Clarke and Bingle, the Peter Crouch and Abbey Clancy of Australia’s celebrity scene, have a history of controversy as a couple. Bizarrely, Simon Katich once grabbed Clarke’s throat when he asked if their team song could be sung early so he could meet Bingle. That might sound like an overreaction on Katich’s part and, well, it clearly was. This time, however, Clarke deserves everything that’s thrown at him. Except, he seems to be getting away with it. Ricky Ponting has said “We’ll give him as much time as he needs and all that we can do is give him as much support as possible.” It’s almost reaching black-armband territory. There will be man-hugs all around, draped in the Southern Cross while Waltzing Matilda blares out. And other clichés. As we’re dealing in stereotypes, there was a time not so long ago when the typical Aussie cricketer would have embraced this kind of behavior from their Sheilas. Not any more. This team have gone all touch-feely; if a player wants to leave a tour to be by the side of a model girlfriend who’s upset about a photo, then, well, off you go, mate. I’d love to hear Merv Hughes’ or David Boon’s take on this (the situation, not the photo). There is, somewhere, a serious point about this episode. Andrew Strauss must be bewildered. He decided to take a break from cricket to refresh himself for a very busy 18 months, and was turned into Heather Mills by the British press. Yet Clarke seems to have got the full support of the Australian media for leaving a tour on such a ridiculous basis – they are even sympathetically quoting sources saying he’s “confused and lost”. Marcus Trescothick got less sympathy when leaving the last Ashes tour, despite having genuine, sad reasons. Bingle has previous – the photo was taken by AFL footballer Brendan Fevola, who was married when the two got together. So it’s hard to find sympathy for a cricketer who appears to court the celebrity life and all that comes with it, and then buggers off from a tour when that lifestyle inevitably starts to bite him. It’s not the response to a difficult situation that Australians will want from their captain-in-waiting.

Super Bowl XLIV: Kim Kardashian v/s Kendra Wilkinson?  Super Bowl XLIV: Kim Kardashian v/s Kendra Wilkinson?
Super Bowl XLIV: Kim Kardashian v/s Kendra Wilkinson? You can't even watch a Super Bowl anymore without it having some buxom bimbettes attached to it. Saints star Reggie Bush has been notably tapping the famous assets of Keeping Up star Kim Kardashian (in pic) on and off for years now. While former Girls Next Door and current solo show star Kendra Wilkenson moved out of Hugh Hefner and into holy matrimony with Indianapolis Colts player Hank Baskett earlier this year. Despite an off-year for Bush personally, he was a major factor in the Saints win against the Cardinals in the play-offs and caught a TD pass against the Vikings. Meanwhile, no one probably would be paying much attention to Baskett during the big game if it wasn't for his tabloid-bait wife. In his first year with the Colts, the wide receiver has caught only four passes for 34 yards. He hasn't even been in play during the post-season! The best of all: Kim Kardashian not knowing that Kendra Wilkinson's husband is a Colt and then posing a question "What position does he play?"

I won’t give up on Blues future  I won’t give up on Blues future
I won’t give up on Blues future He says he wants to stay but the club have withdrawn their offer of a new deal and put Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham on full alert. Midfielder Cole, 28, will be available on a free transfer in the summer but he refuses to give up on his Chelsea career. He said: "I've never spoken publicly about contracts before. "I don't think contracts should really be discussed mid-season. I have always signed mine in the summer in the past. "But this time it's different. We can't seem to find common ground and it's distracting. At the moment there is no offer on the table, so I know where I stand. I still hope to talk in the summer." Cole's current deal expires on June 30 when he will be free to quit the Blues after seven years at Stamford Bridge. No new talks are planned between the parties at present even though Cole is keen to stay. Chelsea have been tightening the purse strings at the club for some time and Cole has been on the fringes of the team recently. The bombshell development is at odds with boss Carlo Ancelotti, who said recently: "He will stay - of that I am 100 per cent certain."
