The Ali Williams Blues
All Black and Auckland Blues rugby player Ali Williams has been stood down from his team's trip to South Africa for some off the field indiscretions (nothing criminal or particularly serious from what I can gather from the extended media interest - another cat up a tree story).
This Nike commercial starring basketball bad boy of the 90s Charles Barkley sums it up pretty well.
