The person in question's determination to spruik all things Indian is bordering on embarrassing.

Here's my First XII from the 2015 World Cup:
Warner
Finch
Smith
Clarke
Watson
Maxwell
Faulkner
Haddin
Johnson
Starc
Hazlewood
Cook*

'A superb team playing superb cricket turned up on Sunday and were roundly thrashed by Australia'. Well said.

*just as stupid a selection as the Indiacentric team in the blog post above.

Nick

What is it with self hating Australian journalists?

Does anybody know the ins and outs of going to an ashes test? Any anecdotes?

A Brave New World

Tony, didn't I read a twitter or two from you slagging off the bombers for being drug abusers?

It would be nice to read an apologetic retraction from you.

ah ha ha ha. As if you could do that.

A Brave New World

Tony, you only just tweeted 7 minutes ago yet my request is almost half and hour ago. Unless you don;t even read your own blog, I think you really should clarify all the calumny you rained down upon Essendon's head. It would be the English thing to do.

Then again, the English have this habitual thing for raining down hell, getting caught out, running away, then proclaiming a mighty victory in defeat.

Do the simple thing and just fess up that you were suckholing all your journo mates and got carried away hoping to drag another man's life down so yours could rise on the back of him.

Remember: patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.

A Brave New World

Perhaps if you could feign drunkeness that would help you? But you weren't drunk, you have no mitigating factors, all you have is your nasty, hatefilled, spieful tweets about Essendon with none of the retractions ow faced with facts.

An honourable man would simply fess up and proclaim they were wrong and Essendon right. Which man will you be?

Tony Tea

Did I call Essendon cheats? If I didn't, I apologise.

A Brave New World

Ha, I will trawl through your tweets for the last two years and extract every last one of your slurs and bury you with them.

And if I can't find any I will exonerate myself and wish you all the best and be on my way.

Oh, and with the lasting lingering bad taste of your guilt on the public's mouth. If you don't like it, see a defamation lawyer.

Doc Reid

Any time you're ready to publish those slurs, tough guy. Or do you need 18 months to gather the data, like ASADA?

chump

There are worse things. Imagine the team Brad McNamara would have come up with.
