correction – aussie officials exactly what they used to be

of course, just when you think things are ok, someone opens their mouth and sorts it all out for you. in this case, the chief administrator of australian cricket pipes up to say he really doesn’t think this racism stuff is going to be a problem and when pressed to be specific about the man in the sydney crowd calling monty panesar a stupid indian, cleverly responds with ‘i don’t see a lot racist in that’.

no, i don’t suppose you do.

it brings to mind the time CLP was working on a job involving a certain very famous aussie test cricketer of the recent past; he was recording a voice-over that involved a reference to the pakistanis and it just wasn’t running to time; time for some smart thinking: ‘err couldn’t i could just say pakis’. Brave attempts all round not to choke. plus ca change…

and they’ll probably win the bloody ashes now.

    and it’s people like you i blame – how are the kids to grow up fucked-up without professionals to lie to them. he told us that if you put your coat on the floor the teacher said she’d put in the bin. i told him his teacher was lying and it was what’s called an empty threat.
    tho i stressed the importance of hanging his coat up.
