    Look, the whole affair was handled terribly by NZC and Hesson - particularly some of the rewriting of conversations by Hesson. But some of the stuff from NZ fans, particularly on the net, is nothing short of idiotic - personal slights against Hesson's appearance (relevance? Nil), abuse of McCullum who has largely kept his nose clean in this affair, and comments like the one I quoted. I have kept pretty quiet on this, but that comment was the culmination of rubbish comment after rubbish comment.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    If you took 20 years off Andy Flower made him into a **** and a Kiwi then remove any osrt of use as a coach you'd get Hesson.

    PEWS doesn't know where h's from.

    How does he get picked I mean forgive me if I've missed something but an average of nearly 40 in FC seems somewhat high to be at the front of the queue.

    It's pretty obvious Hesson lied through his teeth while sacking a popular player as captain. People are bound to be pissed off and show it. With the normal added internet hyperbole.

    It's all pretty tame, mind.

    It's only a reserve spot, and he's been picked on potential mainly. Gillespie, Milne, Wheeler, Small etc are all injured atm so he was really the only option outside the older guys like Arnel. Wagner or Martin will play anyway.

    In terms of selection it's a big improvement over picking Nicol as reserve batsman.

    Honestly I think one of the main reasons people dislike Hesson is because he is short and looks like a stereotypical geek.

    I didn't even know what he looked like until he shafted Ross Taylor tbh. I don't usually take much interest at all in how a coach looks, just how he coaches. Obviously I should take more notice in how a coach interacts, communicates and lies to his players though.

    Hesson will be hated because he's fitting the bill of the classic player power era toady, a 38 y.o. fanboy who didn't have the mana to live and die by his own calls.

    McCullum has a record of being more impressive the more frivolous the situation is, and is now showing us a walk-in wardrobe of sports speak's cast off clothes. Like John Key you could argue he ultimately wants the best for NZ's prospects rather than just his own, but he's a slippery eel that's very good at making an expedient call, and will look at you blankly if you ever used the word 'ambitious' in a pejorative sense. "Two jumps in a week, I bet you think that's pretty clever, don't you boy". We'll see if he gets this second jump tomorrow.
