It's a good segment, but it's pretty infuriating hearing Symonds speak about how he felt guilty about causing the whole mess and dragging his mates into it. Hard to believe that in the 2000's someone has to feel guilty about expecting to not get racially abused.
I know Craddock can be a bit of a flog, and for some reason people seem to have turned on Whateley, but I really enjoy having the hour of Cricket 360 at the close of play. It’s the show I never knew I needed til we had it.
Of course having such a compelling series helps the show a lot.
Came into the thread to post on this show which I'm really enjoying. For me it is highlighting the chasm between Craddocks and Robbo's performance on AFL360.
Crash has eloquent delivery, behind the scenes tidbits that arent common knowledge and help the viewer have an understadning on issues from the players perspective, and generally very succint and insightful opinions on the actual game related talk (technique, captaincy etc.)
For me it is really highlighting how poorly Robbo does in the same role.

Micky vaughn is a legend in his own mind and is perfectly entitled to chuck a few grenades into the aussie camp.. good looking
dude and also very inciteful and also won't stoop and kiss the toes of anyone..
I tried watching the Heat v Strikers match. Admittedly the game was a total bore, but after listening the Symonds going on for about 2 overs on how to cook a turkey, I just gave up. Self indulgence is all very well, but I don't think it will ever replace entertainment.
There's a lot of history between Sir Donald and Chappelli going back many years. There was a lot of bad blood between Bradman and Vic Richardson that Chappelli touches on, and feels Bradman always had it in for him because of his grandfather. We all know Bradman never voted for Chappelli as captain of Australia but he was outvoted by other board members, plus Chappelli and Bradman were at war over player payments.
I remember Chappelli's comment that Bradman was more responsible for the advent of World Series Cricket than anyone. Greg Chappell had many battles with Bradman as well when he was captain of Australia.
