The Spirit of the game

So... Aussies. How does Warney's pressurising of the umpires and your
side's excessive ppealling sit with Mr Ponting's desire to uphold the
spirit of the game? Your team were lovable losers over here last
summer. but they seem to have transformed in to thugs yet again as they
returned back home. Shane the drug cheat seems to assume that he has a
right to a personal explanation of every lbw decision that goes against
him and the treatment of Graeme Smith has been a touch harsh, don't you
think?

Still, I'm sure that you will all be able to explain these
irregularities in the Spirit of The Game especially as you have used no
subs during the series.

Fluid tablets are drugs...

sore loser yourself.

We're poor winners and poor losers.
Warne's behaviour is embarrassing.
