Why do we Care?
I simply do not understand why the powers that be in our country, seem to have such a low opinion of our worth? Let's start with the whaling fiasco, personally I think those guys jumping the boat were real dills, regardless, we have rules in our backyard which should be respected. Instead, everyone was so worried about upsetting the Japanese? Didn't they totally flip us the bird by ignoring our requests to respect our laws in the first place?

SIGH! The ongoing Cricket fiasco. I find cricket as interesting as watching paint dry, again though, the whole sorry affair really got my teeth grinding... I mean, this bloke, a repeat offender, gets sprung again being racist & is charged, and because a Cricket Board says they will spit the dummy and take their bat & ball & go home, we bend over backwards to 'make it better'. I don't know about you, but if that was a kid in my backyard bullying the other kids like that I would tell him to nick off & go home and come back when he can play nicely??? What really peeved me though was how we were so worried about 'offending' the Indians, and their precious honour? They could call our players 'liars', accuse us of 'tampering' with evidence, and no person in authority says 'boo'? Anyone else see anything wrong here?

Don't, get me wrong, I don't want everyone suddenly doing the old bar fight square up with a 'You calling me a liar', put your dukes up, but fair go, why do we always seem to cop this? The Japanese would not suddenly send Jet Fighters over Australia, and the Indians would not have pulled out, too much money involved, the media in India with all the booked advertising would have been telling them to get back on the pitch before the burning effigies even had a chance to cool...

We are not the biggest fish in the ocean, but we still deserve respect, though how can we expect others to respect us, when we don't seem to have that same expectation from ourselves? Any School Principal could explain that concept to our Government & Cricket Board?

Cheers, Noely, Community Site Coordinator
