    I wish I could pretend to be surprised the ICC have gone for the slap on the wrist.
    As much as I find the ICC incompetent, what exactly have they done wrong here? Given a sentence that you disagree with? They appointed well respected judges to hear the case, and then handed out punishments which effectively end the careers of 2 of the 3 and leave the 3rd one with a very slight chance of making a comeback. You do realize that if they had gone for a harsher sentence, say life, in all probability the verdict would have been appealed to the the Court of Arbitration in Sports (CAS) and would have been reversed? Heck, Amir is already appealing his ban! It is a first (proven) offence of spot-fixing for these three. I can't think of any respectable legal system in the world that goes for a maximum punishment on a first time offence unless the crime is specially heinous (like murder). You may think that Spot Fixing is akin to Match Fixing and hence is the most heinous crime one can commit in sports, but obviously that's not how the judges saw it. I don't see fault with ICC here. They established a fair hearing, handed out just punishments, and I believe sent out a clear message that this type of behavior would not be tolerated.

    Anyway, what a joke

    Where is the proof that Aamir and Asif were offered money?

    Nowhere

    Where is the proof that Asif and Aamir received money?

    Same place

    Complete ****ing joke of a decision that robs fans the world over of seeing 2 of the best talents of their generation

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    This is a side issue anyway, but let's not go over the top, or get overly slanderous. After all, a mother has just seen her teenage sons promising career go down the pan, is it so hard to appreciate that viewpoint. Or should she be nodding her head saying he deserved it, just because you are.
    As a mother, she has every right to be upset in a situation like this. However, that doesn't mean it is right to come out and insinuate that Mohammad Aamer has been treated unfairly because of his nationality. That is preposterous. There is only one person primarily responsible for Aamer's predicament - Aamer himself. The irony here is that she is appealing to the same people that her son let down for the love of dollars.

    Sorry - no sympathies from my side. I was a fan of his until this verdict came out, now I couldn't care less what happens to his career. As for Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif - the less said the better.

    On a side note, Pakistan have won their first test series since 2006 and first ODI series since 2008, in a matter of weeks. Coincidence ?

    5 Years no Amir is like 5 years no chocolate. I can't manage it.
    I hope you were not lamenting like this on the departure of Salim Malik as well.

    She didn't say that. She asked for the Pakistani people to protest, two completely different things.

    I'm not privy to all the facts of the situation and, sub judice being what it is, I don't suppose anyone else is either, but given it's been reported that both bowled no-balls at exactly the points promised by the middle man to the undercover reporter and their captain was found in possession of 38k in cash, which included notes with the same serial numbers as paid to the middle man by the NotW, it's insulting to the intelligence to say there's no proof.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    So the captain had cash on him,- I'm sorry but big ****ing deal

    The only things we know are:

    a. NOTW (hardly gospel)

    b. Bowlers delivering no balls

    c. No proof of any money changing hands

    d. Pakistanis

    Prior, Haddin and Dhoni rated a few lines but WTF, give these guys life!
