    David Hussey Petition

    The Australian One Day cricket team is struggling to make runs.

    These things happen, without Clarke or Gilly they might not have passed 200 runs yet.

    Ponting, Hayden, and Roy have all look muted.

    King Probot Michael Hussey has been ok.

    But what would a normal cricket side do when its players are out of form, they would bring in a new player.

    The Australian team donít drop players, they rest them, retire them, name new squads without certain names in them, or wait for injuries.

    So rest them already.

    Bring in Future PM David Hussey.

    Hussey has been humping at the selectors legs like a horny Labrador for years now.

    There is not another cricket side in the world he wouldnít stroll into.

    New Zealand would gladly give up Helen Clark and Peter Jackson just to have him for 2 tests against England.

    The West Indies would donate an island for him, tax free.

    And England would allow Kylie to come home just so they could see what a test match number 4 looks like.

    This has gone on long enough, the team is not scoring, the batsmen look tired, and Roy and Ponting look like they are carrying injuries, and yet all David does for Australia is collect frequent flyer points.

    And I worked for Qantas, trust me, they are impossible to use.

    So this is the petition, as suggested by Homer, if you want David Hussey to play for Australia please sign your name in the comments.

    Tell your friends, tell your enemies, hell tell NSWelshman, but get the word out.

    Cricket with balls needs your name on this petition and if we get over 1000 people on the petition, I promise I will deliver it in person to Cricket Australia head quarters.

    This has gone on too long, and the only thing that will stop me from marching into the ivory tower of Cricket Australia is David Hussey representing Australia.

    Get signing people.

    Which is one of the many reasons Australia are currently are sitting at the top of the international standings.

    Until Hussey is actually better than Ponting, Clarke, Symonds or his brother, he's not going to get picked ahead of them. Regardless of who is in better form, who appears to be hitting the ball better, who gets to face Aaron Bird instead of Ishant Sharma and all the rest of it, that's what it boils down to. The Australian selectors pick who they think is the best man for the job and ride him through tough patches of form. When it becomes more than just a form issue, changes will be made.

    Oh and..

    Yeah. Enough said really.

    EDIT: That's not a dig at Melbournians by the way, but a dig at the fact that he's quite obviously biased and his location has spurred on his post more than anything else.

    Link is a problem, but I will sign it a million times. Ever since this http://aus.cricinfo.com/link_to_data...12JAN2004.html he should have been playing, that's the dark arts.

    Don't use the Victorian bias crap against the calls for Dave Hussey though (I know you weren't Prince, just saying).

    Cam White got built up a bit too much by this state, so much so that it annoyed me, but Dave Hussey rocks. It was absolutely ridiculous he didn't make the 20/20 World Cup side for Aus in 2007. He whips Haddins' behind in that form of the game.

    Great to see him get a huge bid in the IPL.

    I actually was in regards to this member and I will continue to do so when it is apt. There's nothing wrong with thinking Hussey should be close to selection, because he should be, but the majority of the "it's a disgrace he's not in the team" rubbish comes from Victoria, and it is indeed very biased. If Hussey had done the exact same thing for Western Australia for example, I'm quite positive this member wouldn't have started this petition, and I make the judgment based purely on the text it contains and his location.

    There are a number of Hussey fans from outside Victoria and he certainly has been impressive over the last few seasons, and that's fine, but the general consensus from the state that the rest of the country is against them and that Hussey would be playing if he was from New South Wales or Queensland is utter bullocks. It's one thing to think he'd do a good job given the chance, but some of the crap people come up with about him is ridiculous and the majority of it comes from one pace.

    Where is Simon Katich's petition? Where is Ashley Noffke's? The preoccupation with plugging Victorians into the test side for no other reason than them being Victorian is a personal gripe of mine, and I'll call it as I see it. Red flashing lights with this member.

    Again, I'm not saying every Hussey fan is biased, or even that every Hussey fan from Melbourne is biased. But I'm calling this particular one early as it seems to be fairly common.

    Wow Prince, this user's thread was obviously a piss-take. If you're using the text to make judgments I dare say you're taking things too seriously.

    David hussey rules............, he is such a gun and his knock against the blues was also awesome, i think now his time has come, with Symonds pulling out of the Pakistan tour, i would bring Hussey in for him and give him a chance at international level, which he deserves.

    Haha, gotta love Eastern states' similies.

    This petition reminds me of 'Give Matt a Bat' except it won't work. I like Dave Hussey but as has been said, The Kat and Brad Hodge are above him in the pecking order.
