The Sizzle Query: Is ‘Sinister’ Seductive?

We all know that despite occasional lapses into normal behaviour, all of the above guys spend more time operating on the outer fringes of the sanity scale than the rest of us. Not just in a ‘momentary lapse of reason’ kind of way, as even the most sensible of us are prone to do given the right provocation, but proper, recurrent outbursts.
We totally get why the idea of a man so in touch with his emotions would be appealing. But let’s get real, Kickettes. It might be fun to watch Gennaro Gattuso duffing up an old dude on the touchline but surely a sense of humour failure would ensue if he kept doing it in the supermarket carpark?
Similarly, Eric Cantona’s experiments in kung fu are all very well, but when he kicks off during Sunday lunch with the in-laws, there would definitely be questions asked. And as for Roy Keane’s beard…
Do we just love these bad boys because they represent exciting possibilities far removed from normal life? Or would you really and truly like to commit to a guy who might spend a significant proportion of your lives together in custody? Do you like your alone time?
Spill the beans, please. Or we’ll be round to your house to find out why.
