I'm getting to like Mr. Tindall less and less.

He is not a Prince and he is not married to a Princess. He is a professional rugby player married to a professional equestrian. I think people get worked up about some pretty minor stuff. Its not like he was in a Dieux de Stade calendar.

True. However, he's also married to the Queen's grand-daughter and has the Princess Royal for a mother-in-law. Would people think it was okay if Autumn Phillips posed all oiled up in her underwear? I don't think so.

That picture has been around for quite some time now, perhaps even two years. It wasn't taken very recently. ETA: It's nearly three years old.

First, I think he likes to show off himself as the professional sportsperson he is, second, rugby is a team sport and Mike is a only member of this team, thus might not have had any say if the photoshoot was kind of a commitment of the governing sports body.

I dont mind it at all, its for a good cause and Mike is who he is.

The main question does Zara mind? I don't think she does really, I think it is admirable that the rugby players are raising money for charity. He is not royal and I think he has proven he is his own man and will do what he likes with his life and will not walk one pace behind Zara, who has always had the freedom to do what she likes as well.

I suppose we have no way of knowing whether or not it was approved by Mr. Tindall for publishing in the new calendar. I have less of a problem with the picture being used three years ago, when he was Zara's boyfriend.

Well I didn't know that, guess they're just reusing it.

Until I saw the photo I always wonder what Zara saw in Mike. A old photo used for a good cause-No big deal. Zara is far down in royal succession,

The photo was taken in 2008 for the 2009 Calendar.

The aim of the calendar is to raise money for charity - so a worthwhile cause. If a charity benefits good for Mike. I must admit that he is well defined as you would expect from a professional sportsman.

Looks like Mike's international career as a member of the England squad is over, thanks to his conduct in NZ

A surprise there- usually top sports figures get away with anything!
I think it serves him right.

Agreed. He not only acted badly as a newlywed, but he mislead his management about what really happened.

He (or his agent) probably didn't read the contract, which normally carries a "morals" clause from which there is no recourse for the "employee."

Given the way he played in NZ he was probably for the chop anyway - at 33 he would be close to the end of his international rugby career and this really only means that they won't be not picking him next season, which was probably going to be the case.

All that they have done is not renewed his elite player contract - and from my experience with a number of these sports - it is perfectly possible to still be selected, if good enough, even if not on contract.

Good old DM making a story out of nothing - she regularly takes her dogs for a walk - does he always go with her? I doubt it. And they missed making the point of why he would be going anywhere - Gloucester, his club side, had to play Toulouse so no doubt he was leaving to go to work - i.e. play a game of rugby, which Gloucester lost - no doubt someone at the DM will blame Mike for that loss as well. In fact, according to the Telegraph Mike played a really good game Toulouse 21 Gloucester 17: match report - Telegraph Mike Tindall’s travails – and anger – are not going to disappear overnight but the England centre will be feeling a whole lot better this morning after one of the best performances of his club career nearly inspired a famous Gloucester win over mighty Toulouse.

I've found that tabloids are the experts and selecting pictures to suit the spin they want to put on a "news" item--although you'd think it wouldn't be a slow enough news day to feature Zara walking her dog. All the media do it, but tabloids do it best.
