    The difference is if Hair was umpiring a sub continent match, he would be suspended again for not giving How out.
    Having 4 bad desicions in a match is far better than having one Oval fiasco.

    Never mind the indiscretion to write a book while still on the international Umpires Panel mentioning the action of a bowler which has been specifically cleared and continuing to ply the line that has been proven incorrect.

    If that was any team other than Pakistan, Sri Lanka or India he wouldnt have been punished at all. He followed the rules, and because Pakistan ended up losing they had a whinge so the ICC banned him, its called damage control.

    If Taufel gave that LBW not out against Inzamam he would be on vacation as we speak. Why do you think Bucknor got the sack from Aus v India? He gave a bad decision against India which ended up costing them the match. If he gave the exact same decision to an Indian batsman noone would care.

    The sad thing is that some people actually do believe this. Conspiracy-theorist nutcases.

    Haha, far from it. I hate the PC culture, like most normal people do. Though I do take issue to what I see is a clear bias against anything that is to do with the sub-continental teams.

    Im not bias against anyone, im only bias for Australia.

    Lets just say If I was an umpire I would think twice before making a big decision AGAINST a sub continental team.

    The Indian board whatever its called practically forced the ICC to sack Bucknor from the tour, cause you know who helps the ICC financially right?

    No-one from the forums I've spoken to about this character (fairly considerable in number) thinks anything else, TBH.

    Some people are so indoctrinated by anti-racism jargon their knees jerk wildly whenever a subcontinent individual, team, culture is mentioned in a bad light. India got an umpire sacked they thought cost them, and could do it again. Bond is right on deal with it.

    Aye, not very appropriate. And a conflict which continues with any number of ICC emplyees ATM.
