Dear Michael,

You’re far too vain.

More interested in the trappings of your fame and fortune; promotions and sponsorship than Test cricket.

Too ensconced in celebrity culture.

You won’t accept responsibility. There will always be an excuse, even when the truth is that we just weren’t good enough. We’ll be stuck in the doldrums for at least the next decade.

Lara.

The team has already succumbed to mediocrity, but you won’t take it seriously enough; when underperforming, you’ll laugh it off. On Twitter.

Your form sucks. How can you lead by example?

You won’t show good sportsmanship. In fact you probably won’t show any.

There's your gauntlet. Prove me wrong. I implore you.

IPL is trash entertainment.

Ben said...

How do you know he wont take it seriously? The media is full of opinion that he is unpopular because of celebrity culture. I have always found it ridiculous that they think it is objectionable for people like Johnson to be metro and have a nice guy image. At the same time, the image they value is the arrogant, bad sportmanship, bad loser culture that the team has had as far back as we can remember.

Do you think he has bad sportmanship? I have not really seen that, but in case he does, is he not just continuing in the fine tradion of the past two captains? If he carries himself in the field like he has a stick shoved way up his ass, is that any different to what fans are used to seeing since the days of Ian Chappell?

I think it's strange, for those of us from other nations, to look upon the state of Australian cricket right now.

But I guess the reality is that things are cyclical. West Indies have struggled to hit previous heights - I wonder whether the Aussies will turn things round more quickly?

utkarsh said...

i would agree. I get a feeling, he is a bit of a show-pony. The way he described the lovable Doughie's antics and what he felt about them on a CT TV interview on youtube, you could sense unwarranted arrogance. Gimme a break pup. You gotta respect thy peers more and work harder and be humble. Ponting scores higher on all those counts.

“Love has a shape, but no color. You’re probably wondering, “If it’s transparent, how do you know what shape it is?” Good question. Well, for one thing, I put it together, and for another, I’m currently wearing it like body armor (though to the casual observer, I appear naked).

I admire addicts. In a world where everybody is waiting for some blind, random disaster or some sudden disease, the addict has the comfort of knowing what will most likely wait for him down the road. He's taken some control over his ultimate fate, and his addiction keeps the cause of his death from being a total surprise.
