    Has more money made the Australian cricketers bogans?

    Would find it hard to pick many non bogans in the Aus side at moment.

    Haurtiz and S. Clarke would be the exceptions

    Maybe M. Hussey.

    Is this because they are getting paid so much money.

    Aus cricketers have become like Rubgy League players

    Look at how go professional has change the type of Rugby Unions players
    now.

    Develops a sense of entitlement, players are isolated from reality, have an elevated sense of self-worth etc. Could go on forever.

    Look at the NBA for countless examples.

    Nah, you don't really become a bogan with money usually. You start off a bogan and money either makes you normal or a CUB.

    Like the Indian players. Just thinking about the whereabouts clause.

    Darn those Aussie cricketers with their beat up VL Commodores, houses strewn with VB cans and pumping out babies for the baby bonus.

    I have no idea what the topic starter is on about.

    Recently heard at an Australian team dinner:

    Michael Clarke: [voice-over] Coach also had a way of making everyone feel important.
    Tim Neilsen: Go on Pup tell him. Tell 'em. Go on tell him.
    Michael Clarke: [voice-over] Like the time I claimed a catch when I had dropped it.
    Tim Neilsen: Pup claimed a catch when he actually dropped it.
    Michael Clarke: [voice-over] And he would compliment Punter every night on his cooking
    Tim Neilsen: Well hello. How's this boys. Woo hoo. What' do you call this?
    Ricky Ponting: Chicken.
    Tim Neilsen: and it's got something sprinkled on it
    Ricky Ponting:Seasoning
    Tim Neilsen: Seasoning! Looks like everybody's kicked a goal.
    Bogans? The Aussie cricketers? No chance. Tell Andrew Pollock he's dreamin'.
