:oops: i think heads need to roll and careers need to end over the latest ball tampering incident from the Australian team. This is something other countries do.

I emigrated from Yorkshire to S Australia in 1967 aged 37, I have been sport mad all my life and I looked forward to coming here as I knew this country was also sport mad,but not as mad as SMITH & Co have just undertaken to put this country in the lowest sporting category it has EVER BEEN IN.We will now be looked down on by most countries and this is a feeling I don't care for.
Just one thing we mustn't forget, other nations have had "cheats",,I never forget Mike Atherton,Hans Krone and Tendulkar have all been guilty of various "tampering" offences, so "PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN GLASS HOUSE SHOULDN'T THROW STONES.
In a newspaper I just read a journalist said "Bancroft would do "ANYTHING for his country"????????????????...really? I thing he should rephrase that paragraph.

There is an enormous fuss going on about Smith,Warner, and Lehman,people guessing as to what will be the outcome of this "tampering".....I don't think it needs any further looking into, SACK THE LOT OF THEM THAT HAD HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE DISGRACEFUL CHEATING. If any of these players remain in the team I for one will NEVER support the Australian team again, it's like not sending a murderer to jail for his offense.

According to Sutherland, only Smith, Warner & Bancroft were involved. Lehmann to stay as coach and Paine to take over as captain. Everyone in the team seems to pissed off with Warner.

The ACA have called for the ban against Smith, Warner and Bancroft to be lifted immediately. Of the three the one player I never want to see again is Warner. My understanding it that the ball tampering scandal was all Warner's idea. Steve Smith was guilty of turning a blind eye when he spotted what was going on and although Bancroft was the one that actually tampered with the ball he did so at the direction of the "senior player" David Warner.

Australia's reputation is permanently damaged and I for one am happy to never see these three play again as an example to any Australian who thinks of cheating ever again. Fuck 'em.

This thing with the board of Cricket Australia heads rolling, resignations etc is not necessary and shouldn't be happening. The incident was instigated by Dave Warner, enacted by Cameron Bancroft and ignored by Steve Smith. Those heads rolled. Move On.
