Yes Ricky. It is.
I'm always prepared to cut the Aussie cricketers some slack, but too often they cross the mark.
All things considered, Lehmann was a dick who got his right whack. Enough of the "I nearly quit nonsense" Boof. Few people feel sorry for you.
Stewart McGill is a serial idiot who was rightly belted for two matches for yet another intemperate outburst.
However, I thought Ricky Ponting was hard done by a few years back when some goon decked him in the Bourbon & Beefsteak and yet Ponting was the one who took the wrap.
That opinion may change if today's item in The Australian is any indication....
Ponting said he was sick of talking about Zimbabwe and believed the issue had overshadowed Australia's victory in the VB Series. "It's getting annoying"
Holy Stuart Surridge!! Enough already! The VB series is a bore! Our loss at Nash Trivia the other night "overshadowed Australia's victory in the VB Series". Remind me. Who'd they play in the final?
Maybe Ricky's been sampling the sponsors product? A bit like Steve Bracks at the Heineken Open the other day. Personally I suspect a tournament organiser named Jeff Kennett, a man who obviously has no grudge to bear, was twiddling the knobs in the production booth to make the Member for Smiling sound like he'd had twenty Heinies and a mouth full of very hot Party Pies.
Anyway, back at the point; stop it Punter! The VB series is an oft repeated joke, but the Bungle in the Jungle is a major story.
