MUGG OF THE WEEK-Richie Benaud

MUGG OF THE WEEK-Richie Benaud

This weeks Mugg takes us away from Soccer and on to Cricket. Although there were plenty of front runners from Man utd and Arsenal. Rio Ferdinand in particular. But I will award it to Richie Benaud on a harsh suspension on Herchille Gibbs. Gibbs was given 1 test and 2 ODI’S y Benaud. Lets review the Incident. Gibbs was quoted as saying “YOU F#$$ING ANIMALS, AND YOU F#$$ING PAKISTANI’S”

 

Now here is my take.Firstly the owe shouldnt have said f$#$in Pakis, But is it equated to saying F$%KING Ozzies or F#$ING POMMIES. If Gibbs said the latter then would he still be racist. I dunno. The word F$CK also has numerous meanings. It is used in fights(#$%& OFF),while making love or even as an adjective if you like(I njoyed the F*(k It can be used in past tense and presence while making love or fighting. (I #$%# him(catering for our lady bloggers/her). Anyway Im drifting. So what was the ban for Richie. Was it for the extensive use of the word F#$k. Calling the fans Animals,or saying “YOU F$$#en PAKI’S.

 

Look our owes as well as the PAKI’S are no saints and yes I agree As a sportsman you gotta lump it. But what Gibbs said is it racist. What do you owes think. I think it was too Harsh a ban . So Richie Benaud sit Snug AS OUR MUGG

    definitely racist when he said paki! the work paki is actually used in a racist manner all across the world. in the uk, racists use it to taunt and abuse asian people. i suppose calling sumone paki would equate to calling a black person in SA something or however you spell it. also da ban may be harsh, but it sends a positive message out to others that wont be tolerated. besides players have to take the heat, its part of the game also as gibbs is an SA player, your views on the ban maybe slightly biased. i wonder what your views would be if hashim amla was called a paki by someone or a fellow player.

    Hmm,

    Seems like calling someone a Paki is similar to saying someone is a “United” supporter.

    The MUGG from the kalahari deserves to be banned. Firstly Harris was getting the treatment from the crowd and didn’t have to run and tell everyone he was being harassed. He should have sucked it up and taken it like a man. Gibbs on the other hand was trying to act all macho making comments from the middle of the field, if he had such a big mouth i would have preferred that he go to the boundry and tell the brothers what he felt about them. anywayz good on richie this rubbish must be stopped. That MUGG bald headed koeksister must sit on the sidelines and learn that he should keep his mouth shut when he is at the stumps. Pakis for the test series even though i doubt it cause they don’t have a real speedster like shoib in the squad.

    THE BAN IS TOO SHORT,HE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN 5 MATCHES.THERES A BIG DIFFRENCE BETWEEN SLEDGING AND RACISM,THIS WAS RACISM! WHY WAS GIBBS JUMPING IF HARRIS WAS GETTIN STICK,MAYBE A CASE OF “BATTING FOR THE OTHER TEAM” WHO KNOWS! GIBBS HAS ALWAYS HAD A DISCIPLINE PROBLEM,I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY THE TAEM AND PUBLIC ARE STANDING BY HIM,TIME HE SITS BACK AND REFLECTS ON HIS ASSLIKE BEHAVIOUR.
