Again you have it wrong Crowley.
The Australian team was directed by the Australian Cricket Board and the ICC to report any racial misbehaviour. The Aussies were in trouble if they didnt say anything. It wasnt in India where we had to cop this rubbish! Imagine if a white player had called a person of mixed Anglo and Carribean descent A MONKEY!
Just ask ...[text shortened]... poo. Bucknor has been dropped but the other guy was poor too. Why hasnt he been dumped as well?
I've been called a buffalo before, because I'm a big guy. I laughed it off.
Andrew Symonds is an ugly bastard - why can't Harbhajan compare him to a monkey? Why is monkey suddenly racist?
I don't want to get into a whole debate about what is or isn't racist. All that is going to happen is people are going to call me a racist because I'm a white South African male (so obviously I am by default a racist 😕 - just ask saffa73)
I believe Symonds and Australia cricket is playing a race card where there should be none and the ICC should rule against this.
If they rule against Harbhajan, then all sledging should be outlawed.
Racism is an ugly thing, trust me, I know. I've seen it first-hand.
But getting all riled up because someone compared you to an animal is childish and is making a mockery of this process.
