    As long as no-one burnt their toast this time.

    Ponting's outbursts are legendary. Can't imagine him without them, would be a bit boring.

Needless to say, there's no comparison of this incident with spot-fixing/corruption/drug scandals or anything of the sort.
    News flash!!!

    This is not the first time nor the last time someone has vented their anger in the dressing room over an on-field dismissal and these are just human emotions that boil over at times and it should only be taken in that spirit.

    CA is willing to pay for any damages and the matter should have ended there, but calls being made that Ponting should be banned or fined are atrocious and silly and I can bet if anyone other than Ponting was involved in this incident then this won't have been an issue at all.

    It should end with a fine. But yeah, people will always lay into him if he gives them an opportunity. Calls for a ban are pretty ridiculous.

    Would be impressed if the media could spin a positive angle into him breaking a tv or whatever tbh.

    I doubt that. We won't know anyway because it's always Ponting that's doing this ****

    Imagine if Tendulkar did it - the GCA would hold a press conference and give a public apology to Tendulkar for having the audacity to show a replay of him getting out in the dressing room at such an inappropriate time.

    Keeping the funny business aside lets get one thing straight, there really aren't many saints walking around in international cricket atm but this whole thing of blowing things out of proportion whenever Ponting is involved in anything is just opportunistic journalism at its moronic best.

    Oppertunistic journalism? From people paid for filling column inches in order to justify being sent out to India with paid expenses? Fancy that.

    We go on about it because it's funny. No more to it.

    Glenn Mitchell's a decent commentator tbf. You might have heard him once or twice, I dunno.

    Yeah I don't mind Glenn Mitchell at all.

    Ponting should chill the **** out though. Isn't his wife a decent looker?
