    The ICC Code of Conduct - exploding the myths

    Graeme Smith and Andre Nel have both just received fines for breaching the code in the ongoing Test in New Zealand (a fact that has not been very widely reported I note)

    Since it's introduction, more South Africans than any other country have been penalised under it, yet not once have I seen anyone from South Africa moaning about it.

    Apparently, South Africa are on the half that is being treated better than the others - but that isn't borne out by the facts...

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    There have been any number of posts in recent days and weeks bemoaning inherent racism in the ICC, claiming that players like Shoaib and Murali are continually being singled out, whereas South Africa, England, Aussie and NZ are immune.

    Someone insinuated that if Glenn McGrath had been from Asia blah blah you get the picture.

    Me? I think it's all nonsense.

    Ah, that stuff. *shrugs* Chances are half of the punishments they're dealt are from umpires/referees of their own "group" anyway. =P People always whine about this stuff.

    What interests me is the actual Smith/Nel thing. What were they fined for?

    Whoever says that ICC is racist is an idiot. ICC may be inconsistent but not racist. The reason for ICC's inconsistency is because of the different personalities of Match Refs. For example - G Vishwanath can be more forgiving than someone like Clive Lloyd who is very strict.

    Oh noooo.. Just you watch... They will be up in arms against the match referee... And then they will go and veto the next test match if somethings not done about it.. and then they will be relieved when everyone lets them off....

    I'm going on what some people have claimed on here, when it is clearly not true.

    It wasn't an illegal test match... They just agreed to play an FC match so the UCBSA wouldn't lose out on so much money i presume....

    Anyway it was the Indian's, not the South Africans who were at fault, shockingly irresponsible and self centred, just because they disagreed with a match referee... Im afraid we are going to see similar again...
