    by having a go at him you're just showing your immense bias against the fella.


    Either way, streaking is an unutterably stupid thing to do and TBH I don't really care if someone gets hurt doing it, serves them right.

    Rather unjust charges, as social points-out in a roundabout way, though, are a fact of life these days. But I'd imagine the attention-seeking **** should be more greatful for being shoulder-charged by Symonds - he got more of the attention he wanted that way.

I've seen firmer bumps in U/17's rugby, the idiot jusst went flying because he wasn't all that big and Symonds weighs 100kg.
    Quite. No attempt to use his arms at all. He'd be looking at a ban if he lead with his shoulder like that in either code of rugby.

    Incidentally, didn't Symonds consider a switch to league once upon a time? Got the build for a second row, anyway.

    You're right. But, I have no time for morons who do something like that. He got off easy - he should have been tonked in the head with a bat. Good on Symonds for doing what he did.

    No sympathy at all for the streaker, got the least of what he deserved. He shouldn't be on there plain and simple!! Get what you deserve, esp when you run near someone like Symonds!

    He got off lightly imo.

    Remember one incident in a rugby league match in England when some idiot thought it'd be a good idea to run onto the pitch?? How thick are some people? Needless to say he was tackled rather ruggedly by a big bloke that has made a career out of it.

    Haha, dire thread. Bloke ran towards Symonds, Symonds pwned the n00b, n00b banned and admits he was in the wrong. Case closed.

    The streaker was an idiot for streaking, Symonds was an idiot for using unneccasary force against the streaker. All there is to it IMO.

    The streaker would have been stopped by someone else anyway.

    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    So, bottom-line (excuse the pun), the message to streakers is, if you're going to do this, make sure you have a placid Tendulkar-type at the crease
