Sledging is a term used more commonly within on-field players, rather than what comes from spectators mouths.

Sledging/banter/heckling... call it what you like but if you want to dish it out be prepared to take it back.
English is weird. It can be understood through tough thorough thought, though.

I agree but can't recall too many times when fielders sledged/heckled spectators.

They'd be stupid to react.

Nothing more than supporting the mob winning and doing their best for my country. Some see them as nasty bully boys, well, so be it. Why should I care?

Time and place. Spectators commenting on wives/kids is all class I suppose. Heat of the battle between two teams on the field is th e difference you're missing. Plus I don't see anyone "crying" as opposed to answering some questions fired at them by journalists.

Do you care that everyone thinks Millwall supporters are considered thugs and bad eggs?

Thought I'd answered this already. Simple answer really - no one likes us, we don't care.

Fact 1: your coach recently encourage crowds to abuse a player

Fact 2: one of your players is now having a cry because the crowd abused him

This just highlights Aussie crickets hypocrisy AGAIN.

So for you Bomber - who was wrong here?

A) Lehman
B) Warner

Who's Lehman?
"Abuse" vs personal family attack - I know even you can work that one out given recent history, but as usual, everything is black and white with you (when it suits)

So Broad didn't get any personal abuse? Abuse which was encouraged by your coach.

So, who was wrong?

A) Lehmann
B) Warner

Which family member of Broad was verbally attacked?

Re your question, I'd have to phone a friend on that as one I can't recall who stated clearly it was ok to attack family members by either A or B.

Well I personally heard broad's father the subject of abuse.

Lehman encouraged abuse, was that ok?

Is it OK for Warner then to whinge because the crowd abused him?

When a reporter asks him about it, what do you expect him to say, yeah just good banter mate? You might see it as a whinge, but I know you get confused with the term as you do enough of it yourself only to call it "merely stating facts".

Whoever abused Broad's father to him was a numbskull, no doubting that.

A lot of numbskulls there then.

It seems to be your definition of whingeing cannot include anything done by an australian and everything done by an Englishman.

I'd deny that obviously but as long as you can see your own errors then that's fine by me

Far bigger errors whilst your hanging you head in shame:

- hooking up with an Aussie bird
- Millwall
- thinking being a pom is something that needs to be instilled into others as being some sort of advantage
- whingeing about anything and everything any "nasty Aussies" does
- calling us convicts when the real ones came from Britain (remember its all about "blood" according to some)
- thinking Muscat is some sort of demi-god

Shall I go on or let you play around with those for a while? :wink:

England, Ireland, Greece... They then went on to form the people we know as Australians. As an Englishman that means I'm not a descendant of a convict and therefore not a Pom.

I'm guessing vast majority came from England. You're always on about "what's in the blood" so sorry, "cons" were more English than anything else.

originally yes they were majority English. However, are the descendants of those cons australian or English? Were they entitled to a British passport at birth? Unless they have purely bred with other English people then the English blood has been diluted.

So maybe you need to factor this in when referring to "cons" - ie, vast majority of Aussies wouldn't fit the bill.
Plus blood doesn't have nationality - it has blood types, so has little relevance as opposed to upbringing and national "traits".
