FA strips England captaincy from John Terry: In a statement, the FA said Terry would not "captain the England team until the allegations against him are resolved." While FA chairman David Bernstein has spoken to both John Terry and Fabio Capello to explain the facts to them, Capello has not been involved in the FA Board discussions. The BBC reports that as it understands things the majority view among FA board members was that Terry should be stood down.

I have heard what he allegedly said, but will not post it here. Most of the video I have seen has blurred Terry's mouth and not repeated what he is alleged to have said. The Guardian has posted a video on their site that doesn't blur his mouth, but provides no audio and no subtitles. So it may take a lip reader to figure it out.

Can I buy a "My name is John Terry and I said stupid racist things"?

Who, in case you aren't aware, is like Denise McFarland-Cruickshanks but with even less to do.
