    Gotta say, Lehmann quitting looked far more genuine than Lehmann saying he knew nothing of the ball tampering. He is a good coach but he needed to go. Hopefully Pat Howard especially but also Sutherland go too so CA can start with the clean slate it has needed for the last decade.

    Lehmann didn’t resign... he was allowed to resign

    The one match ban from the ICC was enough, it's based on what others, including faf, have received in the past. Oh well, the media and general public who don't watch cricket outside of the home summer got what they wanted. Going to be fun watching them melt down this summer when Kohli is tonning up every match (the BCCI will ensure that roads are prepared here) and our batting goes MIA outside of Renshaw and Usman (aka the flat track expert). Maxwell and Burns might score OK as well, Mitch on roads might do well. This is assuming Langer doesn't come in and just selected West Australians en mass.

    Isn't preparing pitches on the advice of captains and team staff also cheating? I'd say that impacts the game more than ball tampering.

    He looks like the kid at school who all the teachers think is a good kid but he’s a real **** whenever adults aren’t around.

    I can't believe the press minders didn't clue him up to say, "The whole matter is under investigation and I won't prejudice that investigation by going into specifics."
    Bullshit of course, but stops him from looking like he's hiding something.

    He wasn't there to face a trial by media. He apologized for his actions and that was sufficient.
     
  12. Surely he owes the public an explanation. Saying sorry is one thing but there's more to it than that.
     
  13. What's left to explain?

    He owes us nothing. He has already accepted an over the top penalty for a very minor infraction. Time to move on.
     
  15. The questions asked in the presser for a start

    I have to admit, I'm not a fan of cricket these days, lost me a few years ago because there is way too many nothing games due to the 20/20. But, the media has been ridiculous with this whole ball tampering. They cheated so ban them for a war (or more I think!). Of course they deserve punishment and suspensions but the media has treated them like they murdered someone on the field. The media yelling and demanding answers. What's he going to say? So they yelled at him because they didn't get the answers they wanted.. Why is yelling at him in a press conference like a child going to change that.
    This and the lodge stuff has really highlighted to me how aggressive and childish Australian sports media has become. It is now at the English level (pre news of the world controversy). Trial by media is alive and well in this country

    What happened with the question part? I've only seen his statement.
