"It was an easy decision to sign. I could have gone elsewhere, I had calls, but it never entered my mind it's not about the money."
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
Pretty sure they can afford a cleaner so I'm sure that won't be a problem.
Broad won't be doing anything worthy of an interview in India.
Have long felt that England Team Management and ECB have been a bit too happy to bend over backwards over the way other players have treated KP but have been very quick to jump up and down about anything KP has done.
Not for a moment am I suggesting KP was the easiest team mate to have, but some of the comments by Anderson and Swann esp. seem to show their jealousy in them not getting any bidders in the IPL while he did.
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

Would say Swann was critical of KP in his auto-biography, but god how that's being blown up now. That book was written before the IPL rejection too. I really don't understand the Swann hate in this regard, he wasn't even at Headingly, and him and Jimmeh weren't friends/followers of the bloke who set up the spoof account. His big personality and poor form seems to have made him a lightning rod in this farce, IMHO.

Don't buy the jealousy angle myself either, not that I've heard too many people bring it up tbh, although a bit of jealousy over money in team sports isn't unheard of.
The only times they've said anything about KP publically is, has already been mentioned to do with the Captaincy thing, I remember the issue being brought up in this article.
Swann wasn't picked up in both the 2011 and 2012 IPL auctions, same as Jimmy.
Swann's always been disliked by certain people, mainly due to his funny man, cock sure attitude and he can rub people up the wrong way, it's the same things that pissed other players off when he first came into the England side, personally I've never minded him and found him refreshing in interviews, enjoyed the Ashes tour diaries he did as well.

Swann writes crap about KP... Gets away with it.
Broad writes crap on twitter... Gets away with it.
Bresnan fights people on twitter... Gets away with it.
English players write "tell-all" tales about KP and the English dressing room... They get away with it.
English players create a fake twitter id of KP... They get away with it.
KP simply sends some texts and you ban him? Really?
I'm not English but I'm glad I'm not downright biased and stupid like some Englishmen in here.
Brezza got in trouble for his twitter antics
Apparently he and Sammy Patel don't get on either and the latter seems one of the most inoffensive blokes to wear the three lions of late.
