Leading Poo pusher of CI, Daniel Brettig, wrote thus on the just released
list of 2013/14 CA player contracts.
Dan leads with... "Steve Smith, Usman Khawaja, Jackson Bird and Moises
Henriques, all potential Ashes tourists, have been omitted from Cricket
Australia's list of centrally contracted players for 2013-14." Notice
anything about those names? (Apart from them all being "potential Ashes
Then we get to The Undeserving... "In their places were the likes of George
Bailey, Clint McKay and Xavier Doherty...". ("the likes of" lol) Notice
anything about those names?
The contracted list is; George Bailey, Michael Clarke, Ed Cowan, Patrick
Cummins, Xavier Doherty, James Faulkner, Brad Haddin, Ryan Harris, Ben
Hilfenhaus, Phillip Hughes, Mitchell Johnson, Nathan Lyon, Glenn Maxwell,
Clint McKay, James Pattinson, Peter Siddle, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade,
David Warner, Shane Watson.
Blimey there's some VOPs in there.
Strangely Brettig has no comment on Australia's world class comedian Pee
Hughes getting a bucketful of money after his highly popular Indian tour.
Or why Porcelin Pat gets a motza. Is Porcelin *really* worth that much for
one fc game a year? etc etc etc
