so i guess Ashely Cole was lurking around with a loaded .22 rifle, however he didnt believe it was loaded, he ended up shooting a fan.

What was he doing with that at the training ground??

Footballers never fail to amaze me with their levels of stupidity.

If it was his rifle, he was totally responsible for it. He would have known it was loaded and exactly what he was doing.

I thought I had read it was an airgun? Not a real one?¿

It was an air-rifle, but bare in mind that a paint-ball gun can kill someone if their not properly protected, so the damage an air-rifle can do at point blank is frightening.

Air rifles are still dangerous. I know someone who shot himself in the hand with one at point blank range and caused major damage.

The whole incedent just proves that he is an idiot to the highest degree.

He hearns millions of pounds a year but gets great delight in somthing as stupid as an air gun. (i'm sure he had a juvinile moronic grin on his face as he was waving it around in the dressing room.

I believe there was a young child killed by an air gun last year that was big news. For someone in Coles public position playing with one like a toy will further the publics opinion of him. (not that he hasnt already done the groundwork to be widely despised :roll: )

This whole post took the words right out of my mouth (or, erm, fingers).

This puts the nail in the coffin for me. First he throws his relationship with the very fine Miss Cheryl Cole down the drain. Then he shoots a kid with an air rifle...


SUHWEEET

I think you should go sit in the naughty corner for 10 minutes and think about what you've done. :roll:

Apparently, the lad who was shot has been given 2 days off to recover.

I've been shot by an air rifle. Yes, it hurts but 2 days off !!!!!!! Man up, you girl.

How unfortunate is that... Imagine just walking around town, minding your on business and next thing you know you can see your bone and your flesh is flyign all over the place because some inmature idiot was playing around with a gun...

Haha, Cole missed a close freekick today, if only his aiming was as good as the day he shot the kid it would have been a different story..

Guess he must hav been playing too much Cole Of Duty.

Or he might hav misunderstood when Ancelotti told the team to prepare for the Utd match so they would come out all guns blazing.

I bet Chelsea gave the kid 2 days off primarily so that they could publicly announce that they gave him time off.
