Really, the 52 cans is what you perceive as the most remembered thing about Boon? Sad, man. I've often thought that story apocryphal, and find it eminently forgettable compared to his batting and short leg fielding exploits.
As for employer responsibilities you're absolutely right, they exist and rightly so. But steady on if you want to absolve individual responsibilities as well, they're still a big part of the equation. O'Keefe has to front up for his actions.
Thing I wonder is why there aren't minders at these things to make sure the talent tows the line. Or if there are, where were they on this occasion?
He certainly has a problem. I'm finding it easier and easier to believe that it's his personality that's kept him out of the national team all these years. If he and Lyon were still dueling for an Ashes spot, O'Keefe has probably just blown it.
