    Amir's remorse only came after he was found guilty.

    Leaving aside the moral issues, there's no way he'd get a work permit to play county cricket.

    Add in the oral issues and he can **** off.

    Also, how does playing cricket AFTER the ban indicate someone who cooperated fully?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I meant domestic cricket. I tend to call all domestic as county.

    He cooperated by admitting guilt before trial (Furby), cooperating with police and ICC.

    Meanwhile Westfield gets a deal for providing evidence against Kenaria, and still not enough evidence for it to go to trial. Amir should be allowed to play domestic like Westfield, otherwise it's hugely unfair.

    Never in a million years would I have thought Brumby to admit this!!!!!!

    Fixing a Test is worse than doing it in a domestic game for mine

    If he has co-operated fully then Amir does deserve a break, but I doubt he has, as I'm not aware that he's offered to give evidence against anyone else

    But does he have anything on anyone? He was lured in by senior players and he has admitted this many times.

    Next time I get caught doing something wrong, I'll admit to it being someone else's fault too

    If Amir was a turd bowler I bet you wouldn't be arsed

    I find it difficult to believe he has no useful evidence to give against others, but he may not have in which case if those who have questioned him are satisfied he's told them the full story then I'd be happy to accept their views on that

    That's what Atherton believes.

    Oh OK, well he'll just have to serve his punishment then, simples.

    The fact that the punishment was ridiculously weak is unfortunately now a footnote in history.

    I still reiterate that by playing club cricket when he was clearly banned, Amir hasn't co-operated properly.

    Incidentally Westfield's professional ban was actually the same as Amir's (5 years) and that still stands. They're just allowing him to play club cricket from next year as he has co-operated considerably and will presumably continue to assist the anti-corruption program.

    Asif admits to Spot Fixing

    The last member of the trio comes clean. Sigh, what a career it could've been if he wasn't a ****.

    Wow, never expected him and Buttocks to admit it. But too late!!! Terrible human being but such a wonderful bowler.

    I expect they will be blaming their legal teams soon (very possibly with some justification)
