This is a joke, surely?THE England and Wales Cricket Board has asked Cricket Australia to drop Brisbane as a Test venue on future Ashes tours because of the supposedly boorish behaviour of Australian supporters during the recent First Test at the Gabba.
The ECB is understood also to have been dismayed by the way England players were treated by sections of the local media, with The Courier-Mail running a campaign in which it refused to mention Stuart Broad by name.
As well, the England team has already stated it has banned Triple M for the remainder of the current Ashes tour after the radio station arranged for aircraft to tow banners over Brisbane taunting its players.

I mean I actually have difficulty believing that is true. Asking for a highly established and famous Test venue to be dropped because the crowd was a bit mean (but hardly violent)?
Kevin Mitchell Jnr will be foaming at the mouth.
The News Ltd tabloids will have an absolute field day with this, guaranteed.
I mean, if we were going to request the removal of a venue because of boorish locals, it pretty much rules out touring Australia as a whole
If this is true it is an absolute disgrace

I'm sceptical too ftr. It sort of defies belief that anyone could reasonably request the things said there.
