Gun, I think the big problem for the English is being away from the family for months. That along with going into a bubble after being free are the big issues.

I honestly think many sportspeople will do anything to represent their country or protect their livelihood. The Olympians did that for awhile and look at our local AFL and NRL players who had to be away from home for awhile with their families in hotel rooms.

Thus I believe that the English should come or find players that are prepared to come here. The NRL did not wish to go ahead for the WC as some of their players are not vaccinated but that is an issue for next year for Vílandys. But the English cricketers are vaccinated so for them the freedom and family is the issue.

Sad as I liked him as a player and when he was on Channel 9 and Sports Breakfast.

Didnít like him as a player. I was a Haydos fan but certainly his media work was good.

As much as I respect Kerry Stokes for certain reasons this decision stinks

I liked him as a player but not much of a fan as a commentator.

Agree the decision stinks if it is as reported.

Very good player -scored his runs quickly and therefore had ability to change the course of a Test match. Obvious issues with Steve Waugh ; maybe a lot of his own doing. At one stage he and Hayden were competing for the one spot ; and he held it for some seasons. Maybe more to do with how selfish Taylor was. Taylor couldn't make a run for two years but being Captain didn't seem to matter. I think it was the only time Australia embodied the English system and picked a captain and ten players rather than the best eleven players and made one of them captain.

Wily, Didn't seem to bother them a few years later when two lefties :Hayden and Langer formed one of our great opening partnerships!!

Yorkshire in hot water with ECB and Ministers with the handling of a racism investigation. The Chairman has now stood down and blamed parts of the club for not punishing the culprits. Also Michael Vaughn has been suspended too by BBC for alleged remarks which he has denied.

Time frame is the first article which covers it.

The brains of some of our players????

I wonder how much flak the ACB and the fact they may have known about it but still thought he should be captain after the sandpaper gate.  :chin:

Honestly how long did they think they could cover it up for? Was it due to the tv rights negotiation?

If non issue, they should have brought it up and dealt with it. But straight after sand paper gate plus tv rights negotiations, it would have caused a few issues with sponsors etc.

England is dealing with racism issues and Australia with sexting scandal. What is the gentlemanís game of cricket coming too?   :lol:

They did bring it up. He was exonerated and found not to have a case to answer

Which is why it is perplexing to find out CA decided not to attend the conference. They stated he did not breach the code of conduct in the past

So why did Paine resign and why didnít the CA attend the conference to show there was nothing wrong in their eyes.  :chin:

In the past there have been many cricket sex scandals, some were covered up and others were splashed across the tabloids.  Players involved did not resign and some of them went on to be true greats.  If they did Paine did and resign, the world would have lost a knighthood or two.   :lol:

So why did Paine resign? Was it because of the delay in telling the public or cover up. This does not make sense to me. There maybe more but we will never know as we are mere mortals.   :lol:

UK Sun had a more in depth coverage. If the article is true, there may have been a reason for lodging the complaint. The text messages are covered in the article too.

I am more intrigued to see if Paine ends up keeping or the selectors go for Carey or Wade during the series if Paine is unfit or out of form.

Hilarious how this is all being reported. Apparently it was the 2 men who only sent lewd and suggestive texts.
The women never owned a phone or apparently had her thumbs amputated   :lol:

Wily, I am shocked at you.  :lol:

The interesting part was Paineís brother in law was dismissed if reports are right. However Paine was not. Not sure what the difference was or related.

Going back a couple of decades, one of my friends was doing some work on the WC in 1992 as a photo assistant to a newspaper whilst studying at uni. He used to have to hang around hotels to get photos of players going to games or training. His boss told him as a newbie to stick around till midnight getting photos.

The big ones were the Aussies as they were defending champs who were failing and South Africa who were playing for the first time in decades after apartheid.
Anyway, he used to see the groupies hanging around and how popular some teams were with the girls.   :lol:

His best story was one married player from an unnamed team coming home nearly every day with a new girl everyday . Some of them were celebrities too who were married too.

Looking back, he said if he was a paparazzi, he would have made a fortune too.   :lol:

Some players do get upto mischief but in  a time of social media and photos, you have to be dumb to think you can get away with it.  :chin:

Now that media commentators have done the Tim Paine story to death I have one question.  Hypothetically speaking if the Australian Cricket Captain has not crossed 'the line' by sending an unsolicited picture of his joystick to a woman how many can he send to women before he crosses 'the line' is it 2 or 5 or 10 or perhaps more.   

Cheers

Not only was Paine and his brother in law texting the woman in question, it seems that there is an allegation that another male was harassing the women at the same time.  :dry:
