    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    He's a fool.

    One wonders how he is going to play in the Ashes considering he's now split from his wife and lost a lucrative post-cricket career.

    Badly one can hope.

    40 wickets at 16 is more likely though.

    Yes, remarkablely I think he's one of the few players that could block out recent events and still play well.

    It would be easy to label that as professionalism but I just think that, based on previously displayed behaviour, he's so aloof that he doesn't understand the consequences of what's really going. It's an advantage on the sporting field but a big minus in the corporate world (well, until you get to the Kerry Packer level...........). How else can one explain the lack of comprehension of the consequences of his being seen smoking in public after publically accepting $200 000 to give it up, repeated sexual dalliances on an easily traceable and accountable (SMS) medium, accepting $4500 from a bookie for 'weather information', taking of a diuretic, etc. Obviously there are those who will paint these in more sinister lights but Occam's Razor applies here and I think one shouldn't attribute to malice that which can more strongly be attributed to incompetance.

    It wont change things in the long run, Warne will be picked up by someone because he is news.

    Look at Botham, he was a drunken loud mouthed fool who has no manners and his arrogance was so huge that airlines used to insist it was packed in the cargo hold.
    But with larger than life cricketers their name remains while the scandals dry up and blow away.

    So far his break up has not affected him, for Australia's sake they need a fully focussed Warne to front up against the English.

    Kerry has pretty high morals when it comes to what is shown over his network.

    See the pulling of "Australia's Naughtiest Home Videos" halfway through its first episode for one...

    Nah, he seemed too hesitant to dump on his team-mates and let his partner do most of the talking. Commentary doesn't really work when you're currently playing, as your words can affect your career.
