    I didn't say all of them.

    We're not England btw. This is not the 1990's. The sporting landscapes are different and have changed. Cricket is different now than it was then.

    Cricket is very unhealthy in Australia right now and its just about to get sicker. But lets just pretend nothing is wrong and hope it will somehow all work out in the end. That's much better.

    As I've said before, the trouble is the uniqueness of Australian rules football as a product. There is no equivalent situation anywhere else in the world. It steals athletes of all types, from all sports, and is a stunning spectator sport (though they're doing their best to hurt it with dumb rule changes) with eye-catching athletes and highlight reels. There is no precedent for it. There is no precedent for what it is able to do to a market. Ffs, we've just seen Israel Folau explode onto the international rugby scene - because his Aussie rules career was an absolute trainwreck, so he quit while he was ahead. This is the sort of talent lost to the world stage. This is what is eating aussie international sports from the inside out right now, and the meat of the discussion belongs in another thread. It's not all CA's fault ffs. It is a unique challenge, and it is affecting everyone.

    well this happens to be the worst article i have ever seen, why research when you can make stuff up?

    • watson/khawaja weren't sent home
    • nobody knows anything about faulkner, he has never played a cricket match in his life and therefore it is impossible to know anything about him
    • harris has never set the world alight when fit?
    • siddle and starc are the main threats
    • starc is our best bowler
    • mitchell johnson comparison


    wait does that sign being held in front of warner say "all rounder"? good grief
    There's also:

    - Phil Hughes short ball problem
    - Starc playing for Yorkshire for the past two seasons, when it was just the 2012 season
    - Not realising Steve Smith got drafted into the squad
    - Can't really think of a time Clarke thwarted England with Hussey. Probably have to go back to the WACA 06 for the last one. Think they're confusing England with South Africa and India
