Why would you publish the opinions of footballers as the only source of a differing opinion on the events recently in cricket? I think Kent Acott should comcentrate on his road and motoring issues if this is all he can come up with as sports reporting.

Mind you not once have I ever appreciated the rubbish from Police Minister Rob Johnson; you should hear the dribble when he makes his speech at a Police passing out parade.
Read today in the West Australian an article on Dr Janet Woollard and Cardiologist husband Keith Woollard, who live in Alfred Cove that has a median house price of $900,000. I am surprised the “huge” financial toll was given to lawyers, unless of course the lawyers played the “We pay nothing” and the other played the “We want a rediculously high amount” to eventually meet in the middle; seen that game done in a divorce within the family. No wonder law courts are struggling with this kind of behaviour from lawyers, but I digress. Is the financial burden really there? Plenty of high paid jobs in the mines…
