AFL, cricket and golf fan who loves a good rant.

It’s a running joke among my mates that in the last 10 minutes of a match, there are no rules. The NRL is losing fans. Anyways, I’ll keep watching the AFL. All the best.

The referees aren’t ruining the game, the stubborn players are

Ball tampering is a relatively low-grade offence according to the ICC, whose sanctions issued are largely in line with players sprung for tampering in the past. I continue to be fascinated by this sideshow, and I do not think the CA sanctions imposed are too harsh. I don’t recall another governing body doing anything similar for incidents past. They’ve taken a stand and send a strong message, not just to our players, but world cricket that this behaviour and all that went on before and after it, will not be tolerated. Thanks for reading. If we all agreed all the time, what a boring world we would live in.

Amen Paul. Spot on here from you. Perspective is a valuable weapon in these modern times.

I highly doubt that CA were swayed by the 1000s upon thousands of keyboard warriors. The players breached the Code of Conduct in a breathtaking manner, hence the sanctions over and above what the ICC handed down. ✅

Apologies. England comments were a free hit. I’m better than that. Thanks for having a read.

Yes. I felt better after getting it all out. Same time next week?
