As far as I'm concerned, the Daily Mail missed the real story -- why was Zara wearing her Uggs when walking the dogs? I won't even wear my fake ones unless I'm certain to stay on pavement! I don't want to ruin them by stepping in anything messy.

It seems to me that Mike and Zara are just a target for the paparazzi at the moment because of the recent headlines. As soon as something more newsworthy happens, they'll be left in peace to do their normal everyday tasks.

Mike's appeal has been successful and he has been reinstated to the elite squad with a reduction in the fine as well.

Excellent. I thought that was top harsh when it happened.

Ridiculous, even I believed he deserved the punishment he was given. I'll be the first one to say someone has whispered in someone elses ear.

Why am I not surprised that Mike has been reinstated and part of the fine lifted? <--- Now that's a rhetorical question. LOL

Uggs are not meant to be worn outdoors. They are houseshoes. However, she should be able to wear them whenever she wants.

Did any other team members receive fines or suspensions for drinking and partying? If not then Mike was singled out for special punishment because of who his wife is related to. No reason for him to be treated differently than his team mates in this regard especially since the team was apparently not given a curfew or a ban on drinking/partying.

Two other men were given lower fines as well as a warning. I suppose that Tindall's higher fine could have been because of his position with the team.

That would only be true if it equally applied to all the players who got drunk that night and who did inappropriate things.

Not rhetorical at all. Not only must justice be done, it must be seen to be done. Unfortunately that was not the case with the punishment meted out by the RFU. With no curfew, drinks ban, morals clauses, etc. Fines were a little hypocritical in that they reflected the embarrassment of those who didn't do their jobs training, organising and policing the team at the World Cup.

The disproportionately high fine on Mike was levied with a demonstrably uneven and unfair hand. In this case I think that being married to the Queen's granddaughter worked against him as he took the brunt of the retributuion. The RFU became laughing stocks by their own petty behaviour in trying to show they were so fair that no one was exempt.

Personally I think they should have saved that sort of punishment for those that harassed the chambermaid in Queenstown. Their actions brought the entire British Rugby Team into very public disrepute. They, with the backing of the RFU, are still trying to slander the victim and make us believe they were all choirboys. Yeah right!

Sorry, down in Australia or New Zealand where they came from, Uggs are definitely not house slippers! Sorry as I am to say it, they appear on the farm, on the street and, (lord have mercy) in the office . . . . . Ugh indeed!!

I'm really looking forward to seeing Mike with Zara at his first Christmas at Sandringham. Zara's style has really evolved over the years - this article shows Christmas Day outfits each year: The Walk to Church at Sandringham on Christmas Day ~ Zara Phillips Part One « The Royal Post

I think Zara is very attractive, but the truth is that I now feel sorry for her.

The man she married is a loser, and now she knows it.

Does he have a future in broadcasting? Don't know how it works in the UK, much less rugby, but he would be a draw, I imagine.

Maybe if he got his nose fixed. In all seriousness, it would be a distraction with a visual broadcast. Maybe radio? I've never heard his voice.

What is the Six Nations competition?

Six Nations is an annual competition played between the six major Rugby playing nations in the Northern Hemisphere - England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France and Italy.

Mike not making this team, at this time, isn't a surprise. Like many of the world's leading rugby nations 33 is getting old and there is four years to the next World Cup so many players of around his age are being passed over now for younger players so they have the experience of big games in readiness for 2015.
