    CA slams 'bigotry' against Ahmed

    Cricket Australia boss James Sutherland has condemned ''bigoted'' comments about Australian spinner Fawad Ahmed, after former rugby union international David Campese said he should ''go home'' if he didn't want to wear a beer sponsor's logo on his playing shirt.

    Campese was commenting on a story that appeared in Sydney's Daily Telegraph, in which former Test batsman Doug Walters was quoted as saying: ''I think if he doesn't want to wear the team gear, he should not be part of the team. Maybe if he doesn't want to be paid that's OK''. Campese tweeted: ''Doug Walters tells Pakistan-born Fawad Ahmed: if you don't like the VB uniform, don't play for Australia Well said doug. Tell him to go home.''

    Wonder how long it is before some PR nonentity claims Campese was 'misquoted' and his comments were 'taken out of context'.

    It's all a set up so the advertisers can make a huge point of exempting Ahmed from having to endorse their product and looking like the good guys - bet they slip Campo a wedge afterwards

    Interesting issue. Im thinking...
    My club's badge has a lion in it. I believe there are people who want to play cricket and have issues with lions and would not wear this badge. This people better join other club.

    thats already exactly what happened (the first bit)

    which is of course a win./win and we all know there will never be 11 players who object to alcohol sponsorship for religious reasons so it's a no problem for him to not wear it

    Ironic that he fled Pakistan because religious nuts were trying to force their version of religion on him.

    This will be an intolerant post that will draw censure but I am just some mug on the Internet so take it for what it is worth

    Some religious beliefs annoy me -"I can't be associated with beer" like this chap.
    sikhs who say "I need to wear a sword on the outside of my clothing in public for religious reasons" despite the fact people feel intimidated around them.
    religious views on the role of women in society in Afghanistan
    mormans who need to marry 13 wives and leave some other poor chap unable to meet anyone because you have hogged all the ladies to yourself.

    I basically agree with Doug Walters - but think Campo was a bit OTT

    Telling him to go home is worse than "over the top". Its downright disgusting.

    You could easily communicate that you think he should have to wear the logo and not be a xenophobic prick.

    The sad thing about all of this was that a comment like this from a known commentator (surprised it didn't come from that ****head Rodney Hogg) was inevitable. I knew it would eventually occur.

    there's a pretty big difference between preferring not to wear a logo and oppressing women or carrying around a sword. For example, no-one is in any danger of being hurt with the first one
