A week ago the well suited studs of AC Milan pranced their perky bootays around the red carpet outside the Dolce & Gabbana Milan flagship shop to launch the club’s new ‘book’ (as styled by D&G), Milan Fashion: Soccer Players Portraits.

A hundred-plus pages full of pictures and minimal copy? Now that’s a book we can get on board with. And we may even be tempted to buy the real thing rather than download a digital version for our Kindles.

Dolefully, were it not for the over-sized step & repeat strategically placed behind them (which proved too tough for even the slickest of zoom buttons), we would have generously donated gratuitous shots of said bum bouncing to your hard drives. Now that we’re thinking about it, these guys have a bad habit of blocking our money shots, don’t they?

Somebody should tell them to stop it.

For example, if you don’t follow us, you may have missed out on our live reports from the launch of Adidas’ new Predator boot yesterday.
