    as is mine and I guess SS. In fact, quite a few on this thread seem to have a similar view. Just think it is all gotten forgotten in the Benchy Vs Howard and Social stuff...

    It's tied pretty much perfectly but has swung to the side as he walks. Pretty obvious really but feel free to keep talking...

    The Test side wouldn't be hurt but given Watson is probably the world's best limited over player let's hope he doesn't ditch international cricket altogether and become a T20 mercenary.

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
    Clive Woodward is a ****.

    A stressful week at work has been massively relieved by comedy provided by Clarkeh and the boys. Even when they can't compete on the field they still provide for their fans. Well played lads.

    Watto apparently did an interview with Jonesy this morning on Sydney radio. Tough gig.

    Hilarious. Acting like you're not out every time, even when you're clearly out, makes the whole team lose respect for you. You want to support your bloke and arc up when he gets a roughy but when he's pulling that **** all the time..... that he's using up reviews would ramp the gear grinding beyond pain.

    Plus, even worse, he wasn't performing. I'm sure the team got sick and tired of Yet Another Warnie Scandal(tm) but when he wasn't taking poles, such as in the WI in '99, he had to go. And, I might add, he had a similar level of dummy spit. Warne eventually realised he needed the team as much as they needed him (or more) and pulled his game together, got fitter, developed new deliveries, etc. I dunno if the same will apply to Watto, doesn't strike me as the re-invention type.

    Good point re: Warnie.

    The fact that makes it worse though is that Watson isn't fit to lace Warnie's boots - at least Warnie was a once in a lifetime cricketer so he won us a heap of Tests. Same cant be said for Watto.

    Had half a chance to be apologetic and cop it last night too, and he couldn't even man up when he spoke to the press.
