    I don't buy the argument put forward by some that why would a guy on $1 million risk it all for $50 000

    Many wealthy people would do something very simple but shady for a quick buck

    If someone came to you and said can you block a ball for $50 000, most people would at least think about it

    $50 000 for a minute's work is a good rate, regardless of your wealth

    Agreed entirely.

    However, since the Ashes have been brought up in the allegations, it will likely be brushed under the rug.

    Steve Smith has been sending a signal to the bookies, when he is going to score a hundred he walks out holding a bat.

    If it was brushed under the rug, it wouldn't have come out in the media...
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
