13 Jan 2015

I have a confession to make. I really enjoyed the ‘sledging’ or ‘chirping’ during this series. Now before I get shouted down from the rooftops, I would like to give you my take on it. When I see aggressive body language and a few words spoken between players I look to focus on the positives. […]
