    Cricket has had a few such issues in the past few weeks, but none of them have had significant sponsorship problems:

    9/4 - England's Dimitri Mascarenhas tweets that the chairman of selectors is a p**** - http://www.cricinfo.com/england/content/current/story/475980.html
    8/30 - England's Kevin Pietersen is dropped from the team and tweets that it's a "f*** up"; gets fined - http://www.cricinfo.com/countycricket2010/content/story/475495.html
    July - England's Azeem Rafiq gets suspended from all cricket for a month after a twitter tirade: http://hamariweb.com/enews/azeem-rafiq-launches-twitter-tirade_nid294317.aspx
    Last year - England's Tim Bresnan tweets profanity at a fan who called him fat, and then apologizes: http://www.cricketwithballs.com/2009/09/30/twittering-tim-loses-it/
    Last year - Australia's Phil Hughes accidentally tweets that he was dropped from the national team before the cricket board has made it public: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/cricket/international/theashes/5940738/The-Ashes-Phillip-Hughes-manager-takes-the-blame-for-Twitter-gaffe.html

    Interesting. Thanks, Sammy. I'll checkout the link.

    There was a huge thing recently with Evan Lysacek (the 2010 gold medalist figure skater) about comments he made referring to Johnny Weir's gender. But he's claiming his twitter was hacked despite overwhelming evidence it wasn't. There's apparently been no endorsement fall-out for him so far. Here's a link to the entire drama with the "proof," his various responses, and debate over the issues. http://gendertestthis.wordpress.com/2010/08/07/olympic-gold-medalist-shows-his-true-colors/
