    (y) In all seriousness you'd have to go far to find someone who detests that aspect of the Aussie cricket culture than me and many other Aussies. A cancer that has hopefully been rooted out.

    This is unfortunately all true and was a a problem for years. Being successfull does not require you to be a shit person or have a shit culture. Having said that similar traits are now found in many other dressing room cultures not least the English and Indian. Hopefully the disgrace of the...

    I don't remember Athers being suspended from the game for 18 months? Probably because he wasn't. And also probably why most cricket people in UK think the treatment of Warner and Smith was WAYYY over the top because no one has ever copped such severe treatment for similar actions in cricket...

    Similarly Stokes' genuine chagrin when the ball hit his bat and went for four (the moment that kept England in the contest tbf) was another moment of proper sportsmanship. There was simply nothing anyone could do - rules of the game. But he knew and acknowledged it was a slice of luck neither he...

    We seem to have differing understanding of the term "pathetic". Jofra Archer has been one of the best bowlers in this World Cup. His bowling in this Final was nothing short of incredible. So, when in the cauldron of a Super Over - thrown the responsibility over vastly more experienced bowlers...

    Chill out man. It's not like I called a kid who just won a World Cup under the greatest pressure possible "pathetic" or anything.

    It hit the fucking tramline. It was a great delivery harshly called a wide. Even so to say it's "pathetic" under that pressure is, in fact, pathetic. And embarrassing.

    Thing is his first delivery hit the tramline and was harshly called a wide. It as a great delivery. Second delivery was fine. Then Neesham his the ONE BAD BALL for six. Imagine being called pathetic buy some red-faced screaming fat **** on the internet and then winning the world cup. Scenes :LOL:

    You call Archer "pathetic" after 2 balls; he then wins you a World Cup. You don't apologise to him - but instead revel in the victory his coolness under pressure provided. Yet you think I'm being over sensitive? Have a word with yourself.

    "poor" is not the same as "pathetic". "pathetic" does not win World Cups. That kid just did - and thanks but I'll celebrate him and excoriate pathetic "supporters" and not think its over the top - ever. It's really that simple.

    And I'm critiquing your poor "support". Being an ex-pat Aussie I don't have skin in this game but having watched one of the great sporting spectacles it really pisses me off that you get to feel the happiness associated with what Joffrey Archer just achieved for you. You called him pathetic...

    Kept There's two ways of "living in the moment". You can have empathy and exhilarate/despair in the fluctuating fortunes and extreme pressures brought on elite athletes and revel in genuine sporting moments of tension and brilliane. Or you can be some fat **** on the internet ranting at...

    Jesus fucking Christ. He's a kid. A rookie. Given the ultimate responsibility. And you call him "pathetic". Shaking my fucking head. You should be banned from enjoying the dopamine effect of a magnificent result. Shaking my fucking head...

    The alternative is not to act like a bunch of crying tantrum babies. Which I’m sure Levy is so it’s all good.

    Overreacting is one word for how some people are reacting :ROFLMAO: I’d also like to know what people think is meant by “pissy” and what evidence they have for this meaning Eriksen has gone all Pogba on us. I’d suggest somewhere between “none” and “zero” but maybe I’m reading the wrong media...

    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    Can’t understand why a point as simple and clear as this isn’t understood. He has been open and honest with club and fans throughout. He gave fair notice with plenty of time in his contract for us to get our money. If we can’t make that happen he’s under no obligation to sign a new contract...
