How much did it cost them to be told what non australian cricket fans have been saying for years.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

Win at all costs mentality got to them. That will change as the current mob don't look like winning in a while. Eventually they'll go back to being "uncompromising" (with some limitations) and they'll slowly bounce back. I'll give them 2 years of being crap before things get better.

There's already calls to release the 3 of them from their bans. Win at all costs is still alive.

"Calls" only by those who could see others got away with much less for similar offences. I still say the 12 months should stand (as they will), but also same should apply to anyone else found guilty moving forward.

I agree 12 month bans should be the norm, if only some other countries and ICC had issued heavy penalties in the past.

All of the other proven instances could be put down to one person being a cheat. This was corruption by the "senior" players to cheat. There was no precedent for this.

I was shocked they got so long, especially after Australia's history of covering things up or giving short bans.

Just seen Rod Marsh saying that the ball tampering wasn't entirely the players faults and as such they should have their bans lifted. :lol:

So when he recalled Randall when given out in the centenary test, you didn't respect that? Or when he tried to tell Greg Chappell, "nah mate" just before the underarm?
Maybe you're too young to remember, but history should be one of your better subjects.
See me after class.

I know of both of those incidents but the first dealings I knew of was when he came in to coach at the academy, he was useless.

No, the poms win in 13/14, are you thinking of 10/11 when England won easily?

2010/11 - England won 3-1

3 wins by an innings and the drawn game had a 517-1. EASY.

Meh, come back to me when you can manage a 5-0 - a PROPER thrashing! I'll even give you a 4-0 if/when you can manage one and I know your best chance might be the next series

Yes, and with both eyes open. You should try it some time.

I'm not convinced you do if you think winning 3 games in a series by an innings wasn't an easy win.

You could win 5-0 and each win by a run or a wicket and it would be easy? By an innings- easy.

Oh dear, poor punctuation as well now.

You must like staying in after class.

2-1 down with only one test to go, could have been a massive change from result of one test.

Whereas 5-0................well, fat lady was singing with weeks to spare. :)

I don't have to try when its so simple - with one test to go, the series was in the balance - hardly "easy".
