Darrell Hair: depressed gambler and thief?

Postby Boycs » Thu Dec 14, 2017 9:20 pm

I missed this in the news. Just found it in my ‘the Cricketer’. Hair plead guilty to stealing £5300 from his employer Orange’s shop.

Given an 18 month good behaviour bond, and is having counselling for depression and gambling addiction!

Most hated umpire in history by certain fans who called him everything the loony left are calling Trump these days.
Not sure if that is the reason for a breakdown or if he was predisposed to that anyway.
