    Used to dislike him, but have really warmed to him in recent times. Seems like a great bloke and he's great to watch IMO.

    Now i'm no christian, but to me this seems like something a religious person wouldnt do.

    Also, why does he salute god after every international ton he scores, but fails to after every domestic ton?
    Wasn't the old joke that at domestic games, not even God is watching?

    Seriously, who gives a flying **** when he crosses himself? He can do it whenever he wants - did you ever think that international tons are more special to him?

    No secret that Catholics are a bit more choosy when they like to display their faith. But regardless, pretty hopeless points Polo. TC smashed it.

    Also, love Haydos. Australian Team not the same without him.

    It bugs me, and it is a reason I don't like him. It makes me feel as though he thinks he is bigger than the game.

    I'm not asking you to dislike him because of it, I was asked for MY OPINION as to why I don't like him. If I wasn't allowed to have an opinion, whether the reasons were perfectly valid, or completely ridiculous, someone should have just told me. I'll remember that in the future.

    When he takes wickets, yeah i'd say so. Often despite his personality, i'm sure.

    The phrase "God-bothering *******" was coined on a different forum I frequent to describe Hayden, and I've always thought it was pretty apt.

    No matter how great a guy he seems, there's something inherently unlikeable about Hayden.

    You mean that handsome lad on the far-left (as the camera looks), I presume?

    Ha, yeah me too. Got to the bit about the Gunners & I thought, oh, for ****'s sake, Hayden's not an Arsenal fan too, is he? It's bad enough we've Osama Bin Laden, but Hayden? Jesus...

    Then realised Perm meant GIMH & GnR. D'oh.

    I don't like him. He looks very arrogant when he's batting.
