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.
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.

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.

Bracewell had a ****ty FC average as well before he was picked
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.

Vimes tells it how it is:
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.
