Look, the whole affair was handled terribly by NZC and Hesson - particularly some of the rewriting of conversations by Hesson. But some of the stuff from NZ fans, particularly on the net, is nothing short of idiotic - personal slights against Hesson's appearance (relevance? Nil), abuse of McCullum who has largely kept his nose clean in this affair, and comments like the one I quoted. I have kept pretty quiet on this, but that comment was the culmination of rubbish comment after rubbish comment.
It's pretty obvious Hesson lied through his teeth while sacking a popular player as captain. People are bound to be pissed off and show it. With the normal added internet hyperbole.
It's all pretty tame, mind.
