    I'll take a bet that John "fingers" Hopoate will play NRL for either Manly or some other club next year again !!

    I think in Australia or NZ it wouldn't be that serious.

    But You are missing the context guys. Indians or us subcontinentals (Lankans or Pakistanis) are not used to showing the finger signal to others.

    This signal is considered extremely rude and Vulgar in the Subcontinent.

    Cheeky little Andrew Mehrtens was heralded for his double bird-flip in a Super 12 game. Although that was against South Africans, so it was totally understandable.

    Get over it.

    Yeah, seconded.

    Even though I'm an Indian fan, but I still have to say the overreactions in this thread have been alarming. It's just a gesture, life's too short to worry about these things. Get over it.

    Players..yes, official... no. Or atleast i have no knowledge of ICC ever taking an action against any official before.

    What Chappel did was very unfortunate , however i'm keen to know as to what made him react in such a manner?? Chappel will have to adjust to Indian enviroment fast, in India when the team doesn't do well, the public often react very strongly to it.However, whatever the situation, the players and officials are expected to maintain their cool.

    How can they call themselves fans if they were booing the national team?

    Yes thats true and very unfortunate, however i must say that booing is nothing as what have been happening over here over the years.Ppl protesting by buring the portraits of fans on road(happened during early part of last WC when India wasn't doing welll) and even stoning the players on field!!

    Its a shame that such idiots can't be disciplined!

    I just posted in the India-SAF thread without noticing this one.

    Showing the middle finger? Come on, its as normal a way of venting your frustration as any. I think the people's reaction to it is whats blown out of proportion. And I hope nobody gives the excuse, "But we're indians and not used to it". Bullcrap... in almost every delhi school, you'll find kids doing it from before standard 6th (thats 12 yrs). And I'm sure its not just in delhi.
