    Can't argue with its tradition baby.

    I don't give two shits about Melbourne. Thankfully born in NSW, God's state.

    Its the biggest test on the Australian calendar. Every year.

    Cricket Australia won't let Little Johnny watch the Capetown 3 on Boxing day.

    Which are what in you opinion for breaching the Cricket Australia code of conduct? Which is what most of the charges laid against them are actually for.

    I love how Greg Dyer is president of the ACA. What a man of integrity and honour he is.

    Twiz hacked into my account

    There is no way I’d put the players through that mental torture.

    Good decision, not because the ban is the right length but because the bloke looked shot.

    Might be good for him to have a rest from the game.

    Though I haven't seen the Warner press conference (by that stage I was at least 3 weeks over the whole thing) I imagine his tears were a Will Ferrell type performance like the funeral scene in Wedding Crashers (which I am sure can be youtube for those who are curious).

    I don't disagree with that except that I think it is more the date than the venue. I would like to see Cricket Australia sell the boxing day test to the highest bidder and insist only grounds with proper test wickets can bid.

    But there has already been 2 tests by then. You think the fans will be cool with the sandpaper 3 playing in Brisbane and Adelaide but then something not feel right about boxing day? By then it would be pretty old news. I just dont get your logic. If it was the first test they would play then yeah sure.

    Would’ve liked to see him be able to play state level cricket in Australia though. At least the second part of next season.

    Interesting to see what Warner does now.
