Capello might get fired

Fabio Capello might look like a mentally ill robot that Batman built while he was pissed, but he's actually a rather talented football manager.  He's also really annoyed that the FA overruled him and took John Terry's captaincy away.

Capello has been attributed with making comments along the lines of:
"I thought it was right that Terry should keep the captain's armband," said the 65-year-old Italian.
"I have spoken to the [FA] chairman and I have said that in my opinion one cannot be punished until it is official and the court - a non-sport court, a civil court - had made a decision to decide if John Terry has done what he is accused of." (BBC)
This is apparently a breach of contract so the FA can just bin him if they want, which seems a bit harsh.  They obviously won't, since doing or saying anything bad to anyone of any race, nationality or gender is completely illegal now, and if a tabloid paper gets hold of it you might as well actually kill yourself, but it's still an interesting thing to note.  Something else interesting is dolphins.  So you should probably think about those for a while.
