    ...good game between the Blaze and the Magicians until the rain came (and they still played for a good ten minutes in pouring rain trying to finish the game) and both teams came off. There were about thirty people in the crowd, so not a bad turnout.

    As I was driving home I listened to a repeat of Darcy's interview with Hesson. What a liar. Taylor has been accused of being a "poor communicator", yet here is Hesson: admitting that he didn't actually tell Taylor that he would be keeping the Test Captaincy, he just kind of assumed that he knew. Hesson needs to go. And he needs to go before the team goes to South Africa. If he had guts he would fall on his sword before being pushed. Disgraceful.

    Hesson, in the Darcy interview, couldn't even bring himself to agree Taylor was our best batsman. Said only he was our 'most consistent' batsman.

    Could the bloke's agenda be any more clear?

    No no you don't understand. Hesson was acting purely in Taylor's best interests... he thought captaincy was far too stressful, and he could make it much easier for poor Rossco by giving him the 'opportunity' to just do it in one format.

    What a pure, kind-spirited person.

I've read elsewhere about Hesson's communication in his conversation with Ross being poor, and that what he said was contradicted in a PR statement released on Ross' behalf.

    And every person I've spoken to thinks everything has gone wrong and I've not heard one say Ross is selfish.

    I find it interesting that people want their side to lose, although I guess that is nothing to do with the players and the fact they don't want Hesson to come out with results at the end of it and be able to justify what has gone on.
    I admit, i exaggerated a bit, but i was pretty shocked at the time when i heard that people were supporting Hesson, yes there are lot of good of good articles and rants out there, but there are also quite a few misinformed ones, while the more fanatic cricket fans seem to know whats going on, many of the more average cricket fans are confused about the issue

    Obviously the logic was that Rossco averaged 40ish before the captaincy, which went up to nearly 50 while he was captain. So by taking the burden off him he'd then average around 60. Seems legit.

    So guys. What should we be chanting in the stands, apart from booing McCullum when he comes out to bat?

    Word is down in Otago country they're pretty pro McHesson. That is radiosport though so it's probably wrong.

    Try not to end up in the darkest corner of a shearing shed heef.
