We've gotten far too funky.
It starts at the top.
Listen to a Flower v Nielsen press conference.
One is obsessed with sounding funky/corporate/cutting edge, the other is cricket-focussed/common sense.

Wow. Finally decided to give this thread a read, and people are debating how what you look like affects your game? Seriously? Unbe-****ing-lievable.

and how does 'the media' reflect the average Aussie?
And how is Warnie, Gilly, Hackett, Kieren Perkins, Susie O'Neil (and many other sporting stars and achievers) still raking in millions if everyone wants to tear them down?
Raking it in because they have enormous public goodwill - rather than people wanting to tear them down.

I dare say someone like Boon wouldn't get picked these days, you know. Not "fit" enough and all, even though he'd be scoring thousands in the Shield year after year. What a player he was.

The media reflects our society (or at least parts of it) because the public is paying money to read what they're saying. As much as I hate the Terrorgraph there's no doubt it's a popular paper because it gives many people what they want. Tabloid papers exist purely because it's in our nature as humans to enjoy watching people fall, and the bigger they are...
Doesn't explain the rise and rise of Warne then does it - Though I suspect it'd be different if we were still dominating test cricket like we should be
Lets face it, he was kept around the cricket team because he was a once in a lifetime genius with the ball. Andrew Sydmonds got one fishing trip and some booze and he became persona non gratia.
