TORONTOFormer Toronto Maple Leafs player Mike Zigomanis has scored a $162,500 judgment against Frank D because the southern Ontario beverage entrepreneur improperly cut his promotional contract after a nude photo scandal.

D hired Zigomanis in May 2011 to promote his energy drink Cheetah Power Surge for $200,000 over two years. website where former lovers could post nude images of their exes.

D asserted Zigomanis function as a brand ambassador for Cheetah because the scandal triggered a morals clause that voided the remainder of the contract.

Justice David Stinson disagreed, and on Monday awarded the former Leaf the balance of the contract, $162,500, plus pre judgment interest and costs.

Both Zigomanis and Leafs officials initially denied the photos were him, but the former player, now 35, admitted he lied to the club and media in December 2011.

He told the trial he had taken the photos and sent them to his girlfriend at the end of 2010 or early 2011.

Stinson ruled that consenting adults to communicate in such a fashion, with an expectation of privacy, would not, in my view, be likely to shock, insult or offend the community or ridicule public morals or decency.

Internet posting of the nude photos was not the action of Mr. Zigomanis, but instead was carried out by someone else. It was done without Mr. Zigomanis knowledge or consent.

the Internet posting wasn an act committed by Zigomanis and the (morals) clause was therefore not triggered, Stinson wrote.

Sending nude photos of himself to his lover doesn qualify as shocking, Stinson noted.

private communication of intimate information is a fact of life that is not a new phenomenon, the judge wrote. letters (and) photographs containing intimate information have been exchanged between individuals for centuries in the expectation that they would remain private between sender and recipient. dropped the contract of a second Leafs player, Luka Caputi, on the same date, citing Caputi trade from the Maple Leafs organization as reason for ending the contract. Caputi was never involved in a nude photo scandal.

fact that D chose to terminate both athletes contracts suggest the decision was motivated by other factors apart from the ones recited in the letters, wrote Stinson.

The judge also cited Zigomanis participation the filming of a TV commercial, which D aired for many months.

Following the exclusive on the former Rangers and Hibs star, Airdrie chairman Jim Ballantyne issued a completely unjustified and personal attack on the Advertiser’s sports editor Mark Pirie, via his club’s website.In a statement entitled “press reports” he claimed to be “disappointed but not surprised” by Mark’s story highlighting Kevin Thomson’s rejection of the Airdrie head coach position, describing it as “complete and utter nonsense”.Well, the Airdrie and Coatbridge Advertiser is similarly disappointed but no less unsurprised by the chairman’s comments.If the story is indeed “complete and utter nonsense”, Mr Ballantyne would be better served directing his ire towards Kevin Thomson, as it was the former Rangers player who informed Mark not verbally but in writing that he had indeed declined the club’s advances.In a reply to Mark’s email asking if he had an interest in the Airdrie job, Mr Thomson stated: “I was asked if I wanted it, but to be honest although very humbled (at) my hard work getting noticed. (it’s) just not the right time for me at the moment.”Former Rangers and Hibs star Kevin Thomson turns down chance to become Airdrieonians bossWar of words between axed coach Willie Aitchison and Airdrieonians chairman Jim Ballantyne rumbles onIn the same email Mr Thomson went on to say he had been “offered” a job at another Scottish League One club “as well”; the obvious conclusion being “as well” as the Airdrie role.On the basis of these comments Mark quite rightly felt he had sufficient justification for running a story stating that Kevin Thomson had joined the ever increasing list of high profile former footballers to reject the Airdrieonians hot seat.Of course, Mr Ballantyne knew all of this before issuing his statement because he informed Mark he was in possession of the email exchange with Kevin Thomson and was going to publish it on the club’s website.That he didn’t only confirms he knew that by doing so he would completely contradict his statement, which also contained the following assertions:”Kevin Thomson never applied for the job” at no point did we say he had.”Kevin Thomson was not offered the job” well, given the information above, Mr Thomson seems to think that he was.”There never was any meeting between ourselves and Kevin to discuss the job” again, Mr Thomson’s claim that he “was asked if he wanted it”, seem to indicate that he at least feels some form of dialogue about the role occurred.
