    Read a full article on the issue, where the leader of the Fanatics actually said that he doesn't condone the behaviour at all, and it was pretty clear that the "We're doing our bit for Australia" was pretty tongue in cheek.

    However, still think it's bloody poor form. Would be filthy if I were an English player.

    Worse than a bit of comedy booing imo.

    Tongue in cheek? That would be bloody irresponsible behaviour. These guys must be locked up and never permitted to tour England again.

    Haha, FTR Fanatics are amongst the worst blokes in Australia. Don't know of anyone who is a part of them, or who likes them.

    The Fanatics arent just a disgrace to cricket, they're a disgrace in every sporting event they turn up to.

    England should put them on the next plane home ...

    On 2nd thought you guys can keep them.

    What's worse is that some of them get paid to be part of it by Tennis Australia (and probably by CA as well, given that they're following the cricket team around as well)

    The cringe factor associated with some of these guys and parts of the Barmy Army is enormous

    Yeah, would back the public drowning of every member of the Fanatics, regardless of whether this is true or not.

    Most of the time they are just loud supporters, which is fine.

    To me it does sound like something one of them might do as a dare after a night of drinking.

    Thought it was pretty funny when I first read about it myself. Obviously not ideal preparation for a first morning for the English team though. Prior said he thought it affected their performance the first morning. Can only assume they were still tired the next afternoon when they again collapsed to 82/5

    It probably shouldn't happen though. Cue the same thing for the Aussies before the next match in retaliation.

    Yes, The Fanatics are a pack of morons. The Barmy Army are too, incidentally, but I don't think they've done anything this dire (if indeed they did; some are probably narcissistic/stupid/shameless enough to claim credit for it regardless of whether they did it or not).
