    Tomorrow's headline:

    In an effort to reduce the threat of racist abuse towards players, Cricket Australia makes talking a punishable offence at all Australian grounds.

    That's sad to hear. I love mexican waves, hope they don't ban them here in NZ too.

    I was at the MCG for the 3 days of the Test, they had about 10 waves a day, not one worry

    As the crowd at the MCG would say 'You are wankers CA'
    You know it makes sense.

    Nfi how they're going to enforce it but I have no problems with it tbh. I hate getting beer and food in my hair and I hate the bogans in the crowd, where it feels like you have to constantly be on guard or face being attacked by some drunk yobbo.

    Going to the footy is so much better than the cricket where everyone just sits down and watches the game. The cricket on the otherhand, I'd rather watch it on TV. I wont be going this Sunday tbh.

    But the ban wont stop the wave and it wont stop poor behaviour so it's pretty much useless.

    They had this ban at the Sydney Test last month, news story about it on A Current Affair the night before. I attended everyday of that match and didn't see a single wave. Thought the crowd would respond to the ban by doing it non-stop (not unlike the Big Day out flag ban), but they behaved themselves.

    The right move IMO. When you've been hit by something (full bottles, beer cups filled with urine etc.) it'd down right piss you off (no pun intended) and definitely put you off going to the cricket.

    Its a shame that idiots have made it come to this, but really, what's another solution? People have had their jaws broken due to idiots throwing stuff during the wave.

    That is pretty severe. Here people chuck the paper cone things that hold four pints of beer and it never causes anyone harm.

    Throwing urine and full bottles is a bit mentalist.

    Agreed. Better move would be to have more security guards around the place, but I guess cost might be an issue there.

    I can see cases for either side. CA want to get more families to the game, and that isn't going to happen when Mummies freak out about their precious ones getting hit with beer and food. It would be made a whole lot easier if they reserved one section of the stadium for families only where you can't buy more than one adult ticket per child.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Of course, there's nothing wrong at all with throwing rubbish all over everywhere?

    A large section of the crowd generally STARTS the wave, and then what?? Are they going to eject the entire crowd for contributing??

    Please...
