    Stryis' text message attack on Mark Richardson

    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/1/...ectid=10520208

    Not the first time Richardson has written stuff that has caused a stir.

    I think both sides come of as looking pretty damn pathetic after reading that article.

    Richardson received the texts in the middle of the night and later forwarded an informal complaint to New Zealand Cricket's chief executive, Justin Vaughan, who is attending the International Cricket Council board meeting in Dubai and was not available for comment, and also spoke to Players' Association manager Heath Mills.

    Not entirely sure that was the right move on Richardsons part, just makes him look like a grass.

    Though Stryis' comments were just absurd and completely unwarranted, Richardson made some very valid points, I think it's an absolute joke than any professional sportsman could react the way he did, wtf was he thinking, the fact Richardson is a former team mate should have nothing to do with it as he didn't take advantage of his former position as a player at all.

    it's never a good idea to sent unacceptable messages .... and from what i read, Richardson was within his rights to make his opinion .... though i hope that no big deal is made out of this and the matter dies

    Why would Richardson publicise the contents of the text messages?

    Is this another Cricket Company sketch?

    Where in the article does it say he's the one who publicised the contents? He said that he wasn't keen for them to be made public.

    Oh dear, brain explosion for Styris. Its sad not only because its team-mate on team-mate but Styris hasn't come accross as a bad bloke in his career and he's been, and still is, a good servant of NZ cricket and is an invaluable senior player in our kindergarten aged side. Now he'll probably have a black mark next to his name now.

    Though hopefully it'll all be forgotten when some more NZ sportspeople go and get hammered on the turps and do something dumb.

    You can bet Jesse Ryder will do something like that

    Good point. I can see Vettori and co. sneaking the Big Jess out of his lockdown at the Champions Trophy to take the heat off Styris.

    They'll need plenty of lifters though.

    Oooooh snaaaaaaaaaap!

    Wait, is that it? How embarrassing for Styris.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    That was brilliantly done by Mark Richardson in particular. He genuinely looked shocked.

    Richardson and Fleming talk about it.

    What ruined it for me a bit was that Richardson new before hand what Fleming was going to say, I think it would have been a lot funnier if he had no idea what was going on.

    But still it's a hillarious video.

    As far as I'm concerned Richardson did nothing wrong. His Murali-Sanga comparison makes perfect sense, and he had every right to go to NZC board or whatever.

    Styris comes out looking like a goose. Bet he's regretting such a move.

    I thought the article was going to be a huge criticism of NZ's playing style and talent or something. But all Richardson commented on was the incident. Wow. Soft Styris, grow a thicker skin.
