    I remember reading about this a few months ago & was intrigued by this part of the story at the time:

    Navratilova came at odds with the card's marketing, which she called ``inappropriate and repugnant.''

    The story didn't go into details about what Martina found 'repugnant', but in today's update it was clarified:

    On Feb. 8, 2005, Navratilova's attorneys sent a letter to Do Tell, based in Conshohocken, Pa., telling them to stop using the former Wimbledon champ's likeness. She objected to the card's being associated with the cable TV shows ``The L Word'' and ``Queer as Folk,'' calling the shows ``depraved,'' Do Tell said in court papers.
