Sure, he might cop a ball in the ribs, wrist, hand, thru the visor, but it's safe in terms of real danger.

    And Ian Healy at least laughs at himself. Warne is ****ing awful.
    Fair enough, that's your opinion and you're entitled to it. But I don't think Ian Healy realises he's a joke at all. The bloke played 100 Tests yet I'd still back my U12 boys to analyse a game better. I've enjoyed Warne this series - yes he's probably a bit of a fan boy when it comes to his great mate Clarkey but he certainly gives praise to Englishmen when they deserve it. I enjoyed him cutting in with Vaughan saying Broad was one of the only players who could hold his head high this series and instead digging into how feeble his batting has been.

    For you to say he has 'poor analysis skills' is a bit laughable, however. A guy who was widely acknowledged as having one of the greatest cricket brains and would've been a brilliant Australian captain if not for his excitable wang.

    I agree, Morgan was no serious danger - which is why I had no issue with the whole stunt. Seems he's such a loud mouth the biggest issue wouldve been getting a bouncer straight down the gob.

    I honestly don't get the 'shame on Brett Lee' stuff. So we are to learn that anyone can gob off with false bravado and not expect any comeuppance? Sounds like a fairly poor life lesson. If he'd pitched it up, Morgan would've probably slapped a couple down the ground and pissed on about how great he is and it's actually easy. He talked the talk, Lee taught him - and others - not to let your mouth write cheques your body can't cash, and I don't imagine anyone else will be doing that in the future.

    Chappell has done volunteer work for asylum seekers. He often ****s me as a commentator and is probably up-himself as a bloke, but he's got a good heart. Not sure you can say the same about Morgan.

    Interesting to note there is a channel 9 logo instead of his heart.
