    The fact it is potentially flame warring, and like Liam said the potential to get ugly.

    I'm not saying it will get locked, or it will soon, but I would not be surprised if it does.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Mr W, my post was not an attack opn you.

    I simply believe that Australia's bad behaviour is taken out of context because they are seen as being the good guys of cricket

    i have nothing against australia playing cricket in the abusive manner they do, i have alot against other teams who dont do the same!
    Warne will bowl a rank long hop and go "hoo and ahhh" to psyche the batsmen out and pretend he meant to bowl it.
    The reason the other nations aren't as strong as australia is that they are not playing one part of the game, thats the mental game!

    So? As if you wouldn't do the same. I know I would. Cricketers are always going to be hypocrites in one way or another, plus its another way to annoy your opponent

    All countries do it. The Windies used to do it a lot in the 70's and 80's. The best sides are generally criticised the most. Thus, Australia continued critisism.

    Although I think Steve Waugh saying, "CHOO CHOO...", to Chris Cairns while he was batting - after his sister had recently died in a train accident - was the lowest.

    My guess is that swervy is right. The media always allows the public to perceive lies as truth.

    Groan....The Aussies are going to take it to the next level now.

    Brett Lee spoke to a news channel when he was in India recently for a commercial shoot , and said that the Aussies were prepared with the choicest of abuses in Hindi.

    A TOI news report quoted Lee displaying a small part of his now expanded vocabulary , using the words "gandu" and "chutiya". ( yes , it made it to the papers)

    I dont know if the Indian batsmen will be offended or tickled to hear the Aussie sledging in October.

    according to this years wisden, for the cricket year 2002/03 to 2003/04,there were 21 breaches of the ICC Code of conduct.

    Australia were responsible for 3

    Shoiab himself was responsible for 4,including ball tampering,obscene gesturing to the crowd,and obscene language to a player...this is to go with other pakistan players claiming catches when the ball hit the ground, and raising a bat to another player
