The 2018 Australian Cricket Scandal
Australian cricketers, fielder Cameron Bankroft, Captain Steve Smith were caught out in a Ball Tampering incident during the third test against South Africa, leading to the resignation of coach Darren Lehmann.
This was terribly embarrassing for Australia
Though was the even worst thing all the crying and begging for forgiveness? Playing the tragedy further into a Media feeding hurricane. The tears fell harder than rain in a Darwin summer. Then that was such a spectacle it made the front page of CNN
Surely the only True Blue position to take would be to admit being caught, behave like a man and given the breach of code of conduct at this topmost level, simply resign and move on. the worst most was the waterworks, that was embarrassing
Accordingly parents everywhere are are encouraging their kids to write letters telling Steve how much they love him, My god is this part of the new age political correctness syndrome? do they really want to send a message to kids when you cheat its OK, Obviously you just get even more love
Would Parents better serve their children to point out by this example that's what can happen when you cheat, its not a good risk to take and the good news is we will have a new Captain to follow who no doubt plays a fair game
These blokes got caught out on the world stage. Frankly was this an attempted Payback for the 2016 incident where South Africa Skipper Faf du Plessis was caught out using a sticky sweet to tamper the ball
This is not typical of Australian Sportsmanship.
1, Don't Cheat, Good Australian's don't need to cheat, we are skillful at sports that's in our nature
