And the above shows why the whole "intimidation based on appearance" thing is absolute bull****. It didn't do Clarke any harm last series or Hussey/Cook this series, eh?
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
I'm not suggesting that we as a society do nothing but trash these people. I am suggesting that there is a part of us that enjoys seeing them fail, and the media and popular culture plays on that more than is perhaps neccessary.
And Burgey I can think of a few words more apt than interesting tbh.
Am happy to be proven wrong about him though. It'll take more than him scoring runs against this Aussie attack at the moment however.

"**** you're such a **** poster." - Furball
Anyway, this I think sums up what is wrong with the blokes these days - too focussed on themselves and not on the team.
Clarke - Ashes Tour 2009.
It cannot be a healthy thing for an elite sporting team when, after a deflating end to a Test match on a tour of England, the vice-captain heads to London in a Ferrari with his glamorous girlfriend while the rest of the group leave as one on the team bus. One can imagine the opinions that might have been quietly shared when the team arrived at its London hotel to see the Ferrari comfortably parked outside.
It shocks me that a vice-captain can not see how strange and damaging to team morale, this is.

Haven't read past the first post, but I don't get how a respected poster like Goughy very rarely gets called out for his utterly bizarre, downright creepy obsession with "manly men" that seems to permeate his opinion on every facet of life.
Amusing to read this thread in the light of today's play. We will probably see Smith hit a hundred in the third innings.
That flouncy metrosexual with dodgy tattoos didn't do a bad job today...
