BBC indulging themselves in a spot of schadenfruede at Pietersen's expense. They've out up a link to the BBC London radio commentary of his first baller.
Got a good booing for his trouble. Well, two good booings in quick succession, actually.

Closest to doos would be c***. Don't know about the dumb part. Let's say someone cuts you off in traffic, this is what you'd call him under your breath.
I know I shouldn't expect anymore from journos in our Country but the media on this has been appalling, there's no arguing he ****ed up but you'd think reading the headlines that the bloke had been knocking his missus around or been found cheating the game. The need by some to see him turned into a hate figure is distasteful imo, obviously those that already hated the guy are lapping it up & loving it.

From April 2004, mind you.

The prospect of South African sledging does not faze him. More of a concern are the inevitable English jibes about passports of convenience. "There's no doubt about it," he says. "We feel the pressure because of coming from South Africa, and the things that people say," he says, empathising with the Zimbabwe-born Hick. "I know I've just got to continue scoring runs. It's very difficult, it's easy to get side-tracked and I'm not going to lie about it."Indeed.Since then Pietersen's reputation has preceded him. A rapidly deteriorating relationship with Nottinghamshire took a turn for the worse at the end of last season when the club captain, Jason Gallian, hurled Pietersen's gear over the dressing-room balcony after Pietersen told him he wanted to terminate his contract a year early. In February the county were served with a claim for unfair dismissal despite the fact that the gear-throwing incident did not strictly constitute dismissal. And in between Pietersen was instructed by the Academy coach Rod Marsh to walk away from any interviewer who brought the subject up - something he has not always managed to do.
This was all grist to the mill of critics who argue that Pietersen could one day disrupt the England dressing room.

God forbid that someone points out that big egos need to be managed, not just cast aside.

Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
Said it from the start, I personally hope this can be sorted out and we can move on because I don't think what's happened should be an end to such a great batsmen' s career, we're a better side with him in it.
We've got some big series ahead against India and the Ashes double header and I'd much rather KP was there than not. Obviously he's got some things he's got to do to make things right but like I've said before all should be done by both sides to make this happen.
