    My word, even leaving aside the wrongheadedness of the judgement, that's an interesting precedent, isn't it? He grew up when such behaviour was normal so it's ok?

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Or has the law decided the ever famous "reasonable person" test doesn't include Muslims?

    Horrible judgment.
    Haha, my God. Can't believe he's hiding behind the whole 'I grew up with it' bollocks. Stuff like that has never been acceptable. Either the judge fell a massive con-job or is sympathetic.

    Or just thick.

    Yeah, as Brumby said, whatever your opinion on such terminology, the reason for his acquittal seems to be akin to ignorance.

    That's an absolute disgrace, seriously.

    Lol. Was reading the thread and wondering what the words were, thought it might be something a bit borderline. That's obscene if true. Kind of thing that's quite often misreported though.

    Aussie larrikin mate. That's all. These charges, just political correctness gone mad. Nothing to see here. Move on.

    Yikes. Pretty sure you can get them around $5 here.
