    After hearing the utter dribble that comes out of Mitchell Johnsons' snout and the humble offerings of Mitch Starc, Brett Lee, etc, it's fair to say that there's very little of interest said on the cricket field. After playing for 30 odd years, you've pretty much heard everything and it takes someone with half a brain and genuine wit to get you to sit up and take notice.

    On the topic though, if someone can say something to you and it affects your game, you deserve what you get.

    Undoubtedly 2 of the best were Warne and McGrath. McGrath being able to tell you how he would get you out before a game started and warne during must have ****** with batsmens heads

    Warner is a giant flog no doubt in my mind, but I think his reputation is blowing this way out of preportion. It sounds like de kock said some stuff about Warners wife and Warner said some stuff about his sister and mum. Pretty even if you ask me, and surely we have all heard it before?

    I am pretty sure I heard it right up until I stopped playing sport in my twenties.

    I'd imagine it was the talent foremost that had the batsmen running scared rather than their mouths. I'd reckon Warne would be up there as one of those blokes you'd hate to get out to. Daryll Cullinan was just a broken man against Australia - odd thing to say about a bloke with a mid 40s test average in an era with some of the great bowlers floating around.

    Steve Smith has had a bit of a penchant for burning reviews lately. Taking a leaf out of Watto's playbook.

    "I don't want to be out so I'm going to review this. Crashing into middle? Whelp, can't be helped."

    It sucks that we're getting poled in this match, but AB de Villiers is an absolute joy to watch ... particularly when he's got his T20/I don't give a shit pants on and just doing what he wants, as he is right now.

    Apparently it was "cock, his name sounds like cock" and QDK said "the only cock you need to worry about is SBW's in your wife's..."

    I don't really feel bad for Warner as he runs his mouth every series, should expect some back.

    Fair comeback, but you'd expect a man with that surname to be prepared.

    Man Utd knocked out of the champions league and the 49ers sign Sherman.

    Good week so far

    Now for Jordy Nelson to sign and give Jimmy G a good offensive weapon

    Yeah, but he doesn't need to spend it at receiver, he could scheme a couple of screamer monkeys in for 1000 yards and 10 TDs each

    Ball tampering now ? This tour of South Africa has sunk to a new low . How dumb are they to think with all the cameras at cricket now they wouldn't get caught .

    Who do we think this "leadership group" is?

    Minimum is obviously Smith/Warner. There's gotta be someone else in there...Starc?

    Regardless, all of them plus Bancroft for being the actual tamperer have to go.

    Well, that's the end of the series if it wasn't already.

    Yep, send them all home and remove them all from the leadership group for good

    That was my first thought. We already knew the team were full of bright sparks but this is exploring new frontiers of stupidity. I'm all for cheating, but it has to be done well. A really good cheat will have to tell people he's just cheated - that's how subtle it should be.

    I'm a bit perplexed as to why Smith is explaining the (poor) rationale behind the cheating, and dragging the leadership group into it. Surely "it was a spur of the moment" action and contrition followed by the fine / ban. Saying the leadership group discussed the issue and decided to cheat is going to require further and greater action from the ICA as well as Cricket Australia.

    Smith is trying to save his skin.
