Stuey has always been a... dill would be the polite way to phrase it I suppose.

A man with such a low estimation of a sportsmans worth should probably have realised he achieved diddly squat by not going to Zimbabwe. The guy's got a huge ego, all right.
Disappointed, thought he was much better than that. He should take a leaf out of Andrew Symonds' book.

Misleading title, in my opinion. I'd be interested to read the whole interview where he stated that. It really does look as though he's had one point of what he's talking about taken out of a whole interview.

In MacGill's defence (not a way I ever thought I'd begin a sentence, but there you go) he didn't say it's ok per se, what he actually said was:
"One thing that sportsmen need to get over is that the spectators owe them anything. I think sometimes we can be a little bit fragile. It is not personal. We are never going to see him again - it doesn't really matter."
Whilst I'd disagree with him that it isn't personal (I reckon there's little doubt in Murali's case that it is), I do agree Murali has been (at best) "a little bit fragile".
- As featured in The Independent.
"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."
- The Guardian's Andrew Anthony
I just don't see that it's fair to expect everyone to react in a macho, "who-gives-a-flying-about-them" way TBH. Hence, people who call Murali "soft", "fragile", etc. always annoy me rather.
Not everyone is of the mind to do that either, and I feel they've equally a right not to be as they have to take said aforementioned attitude.
