    Shane Warne

    got to say, I love the guy (being from Hampshire), but I cant help but feel he's a bit of an idiot, and a highly questionable character, still think he's great and a wonderful player.

    But....having spoken to an australian last night, she told me that in austraila he is considered a national joke, and generally disliked, apparently this is all to do with his various text messaging problems and other issues surrounding his wife, can anybody validate this allegation for me?

    Nah, still insanely popular here. Some people don't like him for various indiscretions and I don't think anyone thinks he's a rocket scientist but there's a lot of love for him, and he's accepted as a flawed genius, well in Victoria anyways.

    that australian is wrong.

    he is a cricket legend, and people do make fun of the text messages but its in humour, theres no nastiness behind it.

    I thought vic would like him because hes a vic.

    I've always tried to stay away from Warne the personality (and undoubtedly he's not all bad, but there's plenty of undesireableness in there) when judging Warne the cricketer really.

    Warne strikes me as being quite a lot that I dislike, though, that's unavoidable. Would be interesting to see an Australian "do you like Shane Warne, aside from his deeds as a bowler" poll.

    didnt you see the standing ovation at the MCG?

    That was one of the greatest moments in cricket history.

    yeah thats kind of what I was getting at really, I was told that although he is reveered for his sporting efforts, as a person he is generally disliked. As a matter of course I was also told that his wife is also generally disliked, why I am not sure...

    yea this australian probably dislikes his wife because shes prettier than her....

    and not to be sexist, but 99% of females dont know crap about cricket unless they read about warne from Woman's Day magazines, written by woman's rights groups.

    how is that irrelevent? do you realise the total crap youre talking?

    If he was a "national joke" he wouldnt get a standing ovation and be on the news in England with the reporters basically saying "wow now that hes gone we have a chance"

    Duno why im even arguing, you obviously dont live in Australia. Its the exact equivelant of me saying "oh Michael Jordan is a national joke"
