    also, does anyone have Ed Cowan's phone number? Got a question for him

    All I can really say is go around and ask every person I've ever played cricket with and that will give you the best indication of whether I'm a team man or not.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    WEARING the wrong uniforms;
    Michael Clarke and Mickey Arthur

    A cultural breakdown in Australian cricket forced the hands of Michael Clarke (L) and coach Mickey Arthur.

    FAILING to consistently complete CA health and well-being forms;

    RECORDING fluctuating skin-folds, with some players deemed overweight.

    Was expecting Relay-team-gate II. These are not everyday problems for a touring team?

    Robert Craddock applauds the axing of Shane Watson, Usman Khawaja, Mitchell Johnson and Jame Pattinson | adelaidenow

    The selectors' fondness for him has receded in recent times. One selector who watched Watson refer an lbw decision to the third umpire did not even wait for the verdict before mumbling "you're out f... off.''

    Apart from CA no other employer in the world would ever put you in the top salary bracket despite being a mediocre performer, hence guys like Johnson and Watson are making the most of it while it lasts.
    Johnson was arguably our best bowler in the Australian summer and scored a 90 odd in a test with the bat

    it's one thing to be overweight, but more or less stay at your weight during a tour, and then another thing for your weight to be all over the place, which is what it sounds like the problem here is



    and cosgrove is obese

    This seems to be comparable to a really toxic office environment where those at the the top have called in Management Consultants who suggest pointless, flavour of the moment, buzzwords (Mission Statement anyone?) and ideas that mean, and achieve nothing but fool the management into thinking they are moving things forward. And lumping everyone together instead of seeing who each individual likes to operate differently.

    Some of the reports here also suggets that certain members of the team have a great sense of entitlement without the record to deserve it (and even those with such a record should know it can go quickly).

    I'm reminded of two great coaches - Clive Woodward (England Rugby) and Jimmy Johnson (Dallas Cowboys Superbowl Winner).

    Woodward ensured his players were extremely well looked after - treated like VIPs in fact - but they knew that meant they had to work and behave in a manner which respected that treatment. This applied to everyone and, consequently, the top players set the mark that newer players kept to. With this in place all players were dealt with as individuals and an opinion from a debutant would be given the same weight as one from Martin Johnson, Richard Hill etc.

    I can sum up Jimmy Johnson's philosphy in one quote from him (great advice for a parent, or teacher, or anyone): "If you treat someone as they are they will remain what they are. If you treat them as the could be and they should be they will BECOME what they could be and they should be."

    Oh, and this situation
