Tell you what Clarke is coping a beating.
Just goes to show even in pro sports not being a sheep ruffles feathers

Hayden needs to say a few rosaries being a good Catholic boy.
I just wonder what their agenda is - Hayden, Symonds, Healey, even John Buchanen. What are they trying to achieve? Are they just big noting themselves? If so, thats pretty sad, more a reflection on them than anything else.

I've never been a big Clarke fan, but has any other outgoing Australian captain been subject to so much vitriol?

unfortunate for Clarke the Australian public has never really taken to him. So we want to hear all the bad things about the guy and easily forget the great things he has done.

Changeover of cultures.

Those older blokes come from the beers in the dressing room, swap cricket yarns into the wee hours, sing the song on the pitch again at midnight, stay in your whites until 2am after a test match win, 'homely' wife stays home to look after the kids era.

And they can't fathom that anyone wouldn't want to do this.

Same thing is happening at football and cricket clubs at local level. Older blokes can't understand what's wrong with young blokes these days. Why don't they hang around at the club on Saturday nights? Why do they want to head into town - what's there that's so special? They're whipped!

Green monster of a pitch again. We will be lucky to crack 100. 2 guys playing their last test and a limp bowling attack with nothing to play for.

Over in 2 days if England want it to be.
