    Chappell fingering fans

    He showed the middle finger to fans and is captured in video. Indians can watch it in Aaj Tak channel.

    Very poor.

    LOL. Unfortunate thread title.

    I'm presuming the Indian fans were giving him the obligatory jeering after they went down by 10 wickets...

    Ugh...how can I describe this? Disgusting. Classless. A few other choice words.

    All in all, very unfortunate.

    So is this incident likely to escalate into a major controversy or just water under the bridge?

    A controversy followed by a Chappell apology is what I think will happen.

    Chappell has unfortunately got carried away and knowing how angry some sections of the Indian Media may try to beat this up, I hope he can weather this and survive it .

    Very disappointing from Chappell, of all people.

    Greg Chappell has crashed to the depths in the estimation of cricketing fans. Nothing he or Team India do from here onwards can undo the damage to his personal esteem. I was transfixed in horror as I saw it on TV after landing in Delhi last night and kept watching it again and again till late into the night. It was horrible.

    If anyone thought Chappell couldn't do worse, in the same lifetime, than asking his younger brother to bowl underarm, he showed them how wrong they were. You have to watch the sequence to realise how terrible it looks.

    The team were boarding the bus as the crowds stood booing. Chappel climbed in and just on climbing the last step, turned a bit to his right, held up his right hand out of the window to his right pointing to the fans outside with his palm facing upwards, all fingers folded except the middle one.

    Lets see what the BCCI does for this act of indiscipline. Or ICC for that matter. Is ICC concerned with behaviour of players and officials towards fans, spectators and media when off the field ?

    Yeah.. agreed Buddhmaster, not that big a deal and certainly not worse than the underarm incident as SJS suggested.
