    Let's put it this way - I wouldn't be complaining very loudly if he did.

    Utterly incomprehensible passage, that.

    Originally voted just a fine, but after watching Sky replay the incident in full from start to finish, including going over to Tony Hill after he'd got fed up with Dar, I think it deserves a suspension.

    He also has 4 previous citations for dissent, not sure if that will factor into any punishment or not.

    May be his way out, though he will have to miss a few one dayers instead as i presume he will carry on until the World Cup.

    Disgraceful behaviour. Hope they throw the book at him.

    Reckon that if CA is starting to have thoughts about giving Ricky a tap on the shoulder, this could well provide the impetus for them. Yesterday I would've said that he'd be playing on and captaining after the Ashes for sure, but given that he's averaging 15, is about to lose the Ashes at home, and for the third time overall, and has now just made a dick of himself in front of 70,000 at the MCG, the bloke must be on pretty thin ice.

    Sutherland was surprisingly coy about the matter on Grandstand today. Basically just said "well that's a matter for the selectors".

    Yes, please!

    We might actually win a game, then.

    So he should be. He's right to keep himself out of any speculation on selections.

    Good to see the bloke cares so much tbh - he's got plenty of mitigation given the course the match has taken - he ought to apologise to the umpires and that should be the end of it

    Not sure if you're being ironic or not, Mr f...?

    Maybe I'm getting sanctimonious in my old age but I thought it was indefensible myself. To my way of thinking if the technology supports the umpire (and it seemed to more or less conclusively) haranging the chap just seems like petulance and shouldn't have any place in cricket.

    Not to mention that Dar didn't actually have anything to do with anything except the original not-out call, which was referred anyway.

    Agreed with the sentiment that it's basically inexcusable and should be punished.

    Hate when people acting like a **** is defended as "at least he cares".

    Yeah because those well behaved players couldn't give a toss obviously.

    It's part of any law enforcer/judges job to take stick, even, in fact possibly especially, when they're right - if Punter had lamped Dar then different considerations arise but I do believe that conduct such as this, clearly borne out of frustration and a genuinely held believe, requires only an apology

    Possibly so, but I didn't see Brad Haddin getting involved at all, and he was the one who started the whole thing by appealing.

    100% fine and a suspended ban, given they'll never ban him. I can't believe we've actually seen behaviour like that, with URDS, totally ridiculous stuff. Also, is that Clarke in the background saying to leave it before walking away?
