    Mcgrath "on the spot" over his behaviour

    Glenn Mcgrath is surprised with a question re his behaviour from Tony Greig....its a setup, and Mcgrath comes off second best...even sheepishly admitting to his questioning of umpires as wrong. The bully boy has been caught on the hop in this clip.

    In my view there is absolutely no problem with Glenn's response.

    My question is....What is the point of this thread??

    I've seen that video before, and as well several hundred different news clips, videos and not so favourable stories on many players from each nation at one stage in the last ten years. In the heat of the battle of an international cricket match, Glen's behaviour is no different to that of many other players.

    Again, I ask the question ....What is the point of this thread?? Will it just be an opportunity to revisit boring old news stories on Glenn and other cricketers?

    Nothing wrong with what McGrath said, pretty standard sort of media comment I would've thought.

    Haha geez, suprised the umpires didn't make a bigger deal out of it. Hayden upset a few people during that series if I remember rightly, Mark Taylor and Glenn McGrath being two of them.

    I wouldn't really go around pushing Matthew Hayden like that tbh.

    Quite agree. That haircut's a shocker.

    "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
