I feel strongly about AB and the banning of the WAGs.
As outlined by Stuart MacGill (who is a very angry man about most things, I guess lol), the WAGs did have an impact on the 2005 Ashes tour where he stated that he'd go down to the hotel bar at the end of a day's play for a soft drink, and find that there was nobody there to have a drink or meal with - as they'd all gone off to do their own thing.
As Warne eluded to in the Heradld Sun today, these guys in the current side should not be shooting off straight after stumps to do their own thing but rather spending time together in the dressing room after play and in the hotel at night. They are unfamiliar with each other and as a consequence, as Steve Waugh said in the paper today, there is no sense of 'team' among this current group.
Yes, the WAGs can sleep over, but should not be subtracting from the time the guys need to spend together in dressing rooms and at the hotel after play.
A little thing, yes, but when you're ranked 5th, you need to get a whole lot of little things right to bridge the gap.
