Well, his name is Ashley. Maybe he's just confused?

If Google thought Cole was gay before, this lawsuit isn't going to help. Here's another site that suggests quite explicitly that Cole is gay, along with Bill Parcells and the entire starting backfield of the Steelers.

Asked for comment, Ashley Cole's fiancÚ said "whatever they want to think is fine by me."

I never understand these things. Who gives a shit if he's gay or not?

I never understand these things. Who gives a shit if he's gay or not? Probably most of his fans.

Sol Campbell's lawyers sent out a C&D yesterday to a community website discussing why other websites might be discussing his sexuality.

JJ: That is funny. I had to ask my wife, so I blame her. Probably most of his fans. Well, I can't say I am happy with his being injured most of the time, nor with his apparent interest in playing for Chelski, but I am a fan of his and Arsenal. And I don't give a flying fig whether he is gay or not. Nothing wrong with such things.

This page says rcade and, indeed, the whole Pantheon are playing on the brokeback team. While this page says Ashley Cole is not. Not that I care, you understand...

How many of you tried googling his name today? He might want to reword the opening paragraph in his Arsenal.com bio.

Good point, Sailor (ironic nickname, no?): "Ashley is only 25 years old but has already packed a massive amount into his fledging career."

Sorry, wc2k2 ... I read that as: "Ashley is only 25 years old but has already packed a massive amount into his felching career." Google it at your own risk.

Well, his name is Ashley. Maybe he's just confused? Huh? What?
