    Main interesting bit is his captain chucking his kit of the balcony tbh.

    Though I've heard him since deny he did that.

    None of this excuses any of his other behaviour but I don't think he's the only one coming out of this badly and those who were following the account have a case to answer, IMO.

    It's a complete shambles this whole thing, honestly. We'll see what happens over this apology anyway.

    Edit - I may have misunderstood actually. Did England players follow the parody account or just the actual user who was behind the parody?
    England players followed the parody account, so did KP, and he retweeted it. Of all the nonsense stories out of nothing in this charade it's the worse. He may have thought the joke was getting out of hand, but you can't blame guys for thinking it's harmless, if he was RTing. Of the England players that follow Bailey, I think it's only Broad, Hales and Bres. Bailey says he's never even met Swann, so still bemused as to why he's been brought into this.

    Also, TBH, man up you pathetic little person, it's a joke, and stop getting the biggest **** in Christendom to fight your risible divisive battles. Worse than Mitchell Johnson, and I can't say any worse than that.

    Jason Gallian is a very mild mannered guy so I think there was a little bit more to it than KP saying he wanted out of a contract

    ECB statement featured a line about having discussions behind closed doors, the irony.

    I just have no idea what the 'respect' they're talking about actually is.

    Last I heard, the way you earn respect is a cricketer is by scoring runs and taking wickets for your team.

    "The first step to establishing mutual trust and respect" - wtf does that even mean?

    I'll say it again, KP isn't the only ego at risk of being bruised here. Apparently he wanted to play for Surrey as well, but was blocked.

    Nah you're kidding yourself here Spark.

    Trust and respect in a team environment is everything. If your team can not trust you to do the team thing and add to the dynamic in the dressing room you have nothing. Having a **** dressing room environment may not affect KP, but it brings every other person in the dressing room down by a tiny amount and in the end that may add up to level out, or exceed, the benefit of KP's runs.

    Right, but I don't see how whatever the ECB is trying to do is going to help that at all, just benching him indefinitely and leaving him to stew.

    EDIT: I mean, at the least let him play the county match, surely.
