Anyone who has played against Australia knows how abusive and crude
they can become on the field. Like a spoilt
child who cannot tolerate the notion of losing, the Aussies behave in
the most childish manner by trading insults at teams
that they host. Is this sport? Professional tactics? I don't think
Someone said that for all the shit Australia has been giving visiting
teams, sooner or later, someone is going to shove it
right back. When that happens, I am certain that all these Aussie
supporters who have been pissing on articles written
against them, will have to ***in their own excrement.
Mark Taylor made a big fuss when some of the SL cricketers refused to
shake hands with him after that ill-tempered
WSC final but his own VICE-CAPTAIN, rated as the No 1 sledger, set the
example by abusing SL coach Whatmore.
EXCERPT FROM AAP REPORT: Sri Lankan coach Dav Whatmore, a former
Australian test player, could be
seen as a possible peace broker between the teams but he refused to
discuss the matter.
"They are the facts. I have an association with both countries but
I'm only interested in the cricket side of things,"
Whatmore said. He had earlier told a Melbourne radio station he
had been abused by Australian wicket keeper
Ian Healy after Saturday's match when he shook his hand.
When SL management sought a meeting with Hair ACB boss Halbish
arrogantly dismissed their request and now he is
demanding Ranatunga to make a statement. He got the typical Ranatunga
EXCERPT FROM REPORTS: Australian captain Mark Taylor and and
Australian Cricket Board chief executive
Graham Halbish had asked Ranatunga to make some kind of public
comment which could ease tension between the
two sides going into the World Cup.
"I'm a person who does not want to dance for whatever the
people say," Ranatunga said on the eve of the third
"I do the right thing for my country and I have done that. "I'm not
answering for Mr Halbish or Mr Taylor. I'm not
to dance to what they want."
Well done Arjuna and I wish the SL management too took a tough stand
like you. Duleep Mendis has been too diplomatic to these arrogant
