The righteous Australians. Not sure why they need to cheat...clearly terrible sportsmans. They need to start drug testing them as well.

And there will be no real consequences..

 

Ie bans for several important games. Not being able to play for rest of this test match.

 

Being sacked from captaincy.

 

It will be all "I'm sorry"

This epitomises Australians as a whole for me - a very self-obsessed bunch of people. Can be great as individuals - but as a nation? - nah.

I guess it’s an improvement to talk about balls and tampering rather than under arm problems...

I am sorry yadda yadda, surely this should be a life time ban based on the fact this was premeditated and a group of players all complicit in this.

Wasn't Russia banned from the Olympics for cheating? Australia should be banned from cricket.

Like all crooks, the first time they've been caught is always also the first time they've done it!  wink

I lived a long time in aus and love the country and the people.

 

There is this over patriotic theme which is often hypocritical. Like being fair play sportsmanship. Yet time and time again this happens. Ricky Ponting swearing at the England from below on the field, Stuart McGill shoving an opposition player as he walks out to bat.

 

Take a look at their Bundaberg ads (I cant stand the actor who does them). Going on about how Aussie they are. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pK5Q_Us-fp0

 

But get them in a normal situation and they are very similar to kiwis. but there is a is a work place policy for everyone. and then one for kiwis as we are fair game to be insulted, like being called a ram rooter at work is fine, but call someone a derogatory insult toward their race, ethnic background etc its a sackable offense.
