The thing is he knows that is how he is remembered. Literally. One of our players told him that they saw him on a replay on some old footage. And he interrupted and said "I take it I was giving someone a gobfull on the replay". We all laughed. Very funny guy. Very nice of him to give back to the game as well. He was in Wellington for the masters game against NZ and was doing some coaching for the future firebirds program. Which is sort of like helping the enemy since his employer is Cricket Australia. He just wants to help anyone and give to the game which is just super of him.
    You weren't playing in a game on the Saturday were you, for Upper Hutt?

    Almost all our players are like that though. AB is by all accounts an extremely friendly bloke off the pitch. SWaugh gave implicit approval of the most concentrated sledging by a cricket team you'll ever see but is a true champion off it. Same goes for McGrath.

    At the risk of facing a public stoning, McGrath does some brilliant charity work obv, but I've found him to be a bit weird off the field.

    We win because of stereotypes. Winning it with Mills, McCullum etc in the team is proof.

    And I don't see what that has to do with our fans and media?

    Understandable, with McGrath being from a rural area and all.

    India. Hate the team more than England and South Africa, even if on paper South Africa and England are sides I should hate more.

    There's no team I dislike to be honest. If we were to start hating teams because of their fans, then we'd be left with no team to cheer for. For example, Manchester United have got some of the worst fans on the planet, but the team itself is brilliant.

    Australia.

    The 2003 WC Final still stings.


    Really dislike Punter too. Not a fan of Symo either.

    Having said that, Warne is my idol and McGrath, Gilly, Waugh are champs and great role models. I warmed up to Hayden too towards the end of his career. Then there are Lee and Martyn who seem so likeable. And Lehman.

    A team full of really nice people and brilliant cricketers...yet I hate them. Weird.

    This past (most recent) weekend all cricket in my grade was rained off. I saw our top team trying to salvage a game though.

    Yes I play for Upper Hutt and did play the previous weekend.

    Cheers

    Leaving aside Sreesanth (and possibly Harbhajan), hasn't Indian team had some of the nicest chaps in world cricket over lat 2 decades? Tendulkar, Dravid, Laxman, Kumble, Srinath, Prasad - all through gentlemen. Even Dhoni is a gentleman (although he tends to use too many cliches in his interviews). So stop disliking my team

    When it comes to World cup, I don't hate any team more than Autralia. 30+ wins on trot. Come on, play like humans.
