    Disappoint that Lee didn't chuck in the Beamer, though I did notice pretty much every delivery was an overstepping no ball.

    Pretty sure he said he'd take down MJ next.

    I noticed the same. Need to get him back to face some legal deliveries.

    Just watched Sky's video of this on YouTube, Gower scathing about Morgan. I'm glad he/Athers/Nasser all found piers comments RE Swann/Trott and the rest of the team as crass as I did. I've always found him to be a tosser but his tweets during this Ashes series have been horrendous.

    Morgan's way past being a tosser.

    I think CA have probably hired him to try and make Warner look less of a ****, but not even Piers Morgan can manage that

    after Johnson finished off our innings the only disappointment for me on day two was that Brett didn't knock Morgan's head off his shoulders. Ponse.

    I've not faced anyone seriously good or quick like some here as I'm not a good cricketer. From that perspective I wasn't comfortable watching Lee bowl at Morgan. The latter was always going to be clearly over matched if the bowler took it seriously which he did. For all his playing up to the camera and waving Lee on Morgan was scared as anyone who has seen even a little of cricket and knows what it means when a batsmen retreats to square. Even a novice watching his body language would have known that. Morgan could've been badly hurt and how would have Lee felt then? Everyone involved would have been ashamed on reflection. That possibility was always at the forefront and bcos of it there was no humour in the session. I started this thread and I suppose should have said what I felt at the time. I guess I fell for the beat up.

    Anyway I was glad when it finished and it was a poor way to promote cricket as a bullying entertainment. With one exception; it was funny watching Warne trying to crawl up Morgan and the crowd keeping their hands firmly in their pockets.

    Gotta feel sympathy for our lot though. He's managed to infultriate his way into my life through supporting every team I support, and posting ****e about it on social media.

    Are you serious? It's not like they made Piers do it! He's asked to do it, in a direct response to the English batsmen not coping with Australia's hostile fast bowling. If he received anything other than a quick bowling barrage, I guarantee you he would have been tweeting immediately about how easy it was to face up, and how if he can do it anyone can, etc, and the entire point of the stunt is missed entirely.

    Your sympathy is completely misguided, and I say that just in relation to what he's said/done in the last few weeks, not even about what he's 'accomplished' in his lifetime.

    In The Ashes Verdict up here Butch, RGD Willis & Dizzy were all pretty scathing of Morgan. Butch said it was disappointing he was being given even more oxygen of publicity, Willis said his ego would fit in well with Pietersen's and Warner's but Gillespie delivered the mot juste: said if there'd been another over Warne would've been giving him mouth to mouth because he was all over loving him.

    Just watched the replay. It's still funny to watch and as someone else said, it makes you realise how quick 145+ is.

    Did Morgan really end up with a broken wrist as Slats just mentioned?
