    Good for him. I don't think he meant anything by it, and he has apologized anyway.

    I think it was very stupid and naive on his behalf, but not malicious. He was rightly punished and gently flogged, he's done his bird like.

    He was a turd commentator anyway - down there with Bob Willis and Tony Greig and Nasser Hussain in the worst commentator possible stakes

    Good move by ICC imo. Everyone deserves a second chance and a chance to fix their mistake. I just hope he doesnt do anything stupid again, but besides that I'm looking foward to hearing his commentary again.

    Agree. Jones is a boofhead commentator. Likes to make ridiculous, off-the-wall comments on the state of a game, that are so outlandish they're childish.

    Good work by the ICC as far as I'm concerned, everybody makes mistakes and everybody deserves a chance to fix them. I've never heard Dean Jones commentate but how good he is doesn't really matter in the context of what happened.

    Agreed. IMO, though, his offence certainly didn't deserve his career being ended, even if much of his general commentary does.

    (I do have a soft spot for Greiggy though.)

    I agree and I think Deano is good for the game !!! But I am getting sick of Aussie's getting off with a "wrist slap" for Racist comments/atitudes ....

    Cricket australia should come up with something soon before things get ugly !
