Can it be Rio?

The first two names on my England captain poll were easy ones, then I added Beckham because of John Terry's own suggestion (not to me personally, I'll hasten to add).

I thought about the last name to add for a bit. Wayne Rooney? Too young. Rio Ferdinand? Too stupid, I thought. Come on, people, remember the missed drug test? That was completely dumb. So I settled on Hargreaves, though he didn't turn out to be a popular poll choice.

Capello, the vote that really matters, picked Rio.

I didn't see that one coming at all. So much for thinking Capello was a logical guy.

If you're canceling rio out for too stupid then you may as well cancel out half the england squad since they are portrayed as thick athletes.
If you really think rio missed the test cos he was too stupid then thats sad. The guy knew what was up, it wasnt unintentional. Anyway, rio's a good choice, terry, stevie g or becks would have been good also.

If he missed the test intentionally because he was taking drugs, then the drug taking is just as stupid as missing the test, if not more so.
