David Warner Press conference

Postby Verity » Sat Mar 31, 2018 12:21 am

What did you's think?

He hardly answered a question..

He was asked if he could put his hand on his heart that no one else was involved?, he couldn't / he didn't...

He was asked if it was his idea?.. he didn't answer it

He was asked if he thought he was a scapegoat?.. he didn't answer it

He was asked what actually happened?.. he didn't answer it

That press conference was shit.. He didn't even answer if he done it previously..

Thoughts?

Rumour around is Warners been ball tampering for some time and he feels hard done by now because everyone in the team including the fast bowlers knew he was giving extra attention to the ball.

Smith has paid a heavy price for being a shit captain so its not as if the dog is the scapegoat.
Bancroft has paid a price, Lehmann loses his job and rep, CA loses $20 million +

We'll see what the CA board decide to do with Sutherland in due course.

In that tearful interview, Smith said this was the first time he was aware of ball-tampering by his team.
Am finding it hard to believe that.

As for Warner, if he didn't answer, it's probably cos the answer would've only exposed him (and others) even more.
What was he supposed to say?
"I've been doing this for ages. And the whole team was in on it".
Wouldn't that have made things much worse?

Raja is right, he didn’t want to give up anything that could later be proved a lie or be manipulated into a sound bite

there was a long pause then he said the same scripted bullshit he said the whole press conference "I'm here today to accept responsibility in my part in the incident at Cape town" :lol:

same when he was asked who else was involved / was it restricted to the 3 named, a pause then the same scripted response above :lol:

obviously Australia are the only team doing this

all the other teams who've gotten more and earlier reverse swing than Australia over the past 10 years have done so on purely their bowling skills

"I never want to do a 'poor me' story or anything like that whatsoever. But Dave would come home from the game and see me in tears in the bedroom, and the girls just looking at their mum, it's been heartbreaking. When we were in Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, Dave would come home and, yes, I always put on a strong front and I turn out to the games. But seeing them wearing the masks, to have people staring and pointing and laughing at me, to have the signs, to have, you know, the songs made up about me, I would have to sit there and cop that. And he had to just cope with it, he was protecting me as much as he could and protecting the girls.

"Things that have happened in the past, I deserved that. I brought that upon myself. But what happened in South Africa was on a complete other level. And again, it's not an excuse," Candice added.

It has also been reported that Warner resorted to drinking and removed himself from the Australian team's WhatsApp group when the tampering saga came to light, with his team-mates apparently deserting him. Commenting on that, Candice said: "I think that's what's been really hurtful. There's been all these reports that we're such a divisive couple, that we divide the team and things like that. But we've hosted numerous barbecues at our home, not just for the players but their partners, support staff, and we did that a couple of times. He's always going to dinner with the boys when his family's not around.

"All these reports, why I was the only one left in South Africa and all that is total rubbish because there's a handful of girls - Tim Paine's wife, Pat Cummins' partner - there's a heap of them still there. There's been so much fabrication on this and it's just, I personally have had enough," she said.

The South African crowd were horriable, Candice doesn't cop it all tour this probably doesn't happen.

That’s still a disreputable action that needs consequences, Warner is probably a respected and influential figure in the dressing room and Bancroft as a newbie would struggle to stand up to him. How can you say Warner wouldn’t have known that?

David Warner

@davidwarner31
I have today let Cricket Australia know that I fully accept the sanctions imposed on me. I am truly sorry for my actions and will now do everything I can to be a better person, teammate and role model.

You guys talk as if Bancroft is a baby wearing diapers.
25 fking years old.
that too a wicket keeper. you know how the shit talk wicket keepers do? it’s rough.
He does not need to hold Warner hand to walk.
The ball is found with him. He is the ONLY ONE that tampered the ball.
What’s Warner’s fault ? Not Stopping a crime happening around that he did not report? if so, should get lesser punishment than the actual culprit that did the crime. Warner is NOT the captain. Don’t blame him for your actions to pass the blame.

Warner was the last one to accept his sanctions and said f**k all at his presser unlike the others.

Postby Going South » Thu Apr 05, 2018 12:11 pm

he was forced to. I feel for Warner. He is the real scape goat here. If someone “act” like captain in “all things considered” you punish him like the “captain” if some underling get caught doing a crime? what kind of logic is that ? pay him higher salary like the captain. call him to press conferences like a captain. Give team award for a match win for check pic or cup or ashes mace holding by warner as an acting captain too. let warner carry Australian flag before world cup start first day photo-op with other captains. no?

from twitter.

2003 - Warne banned for 1 year
2018 - Warner banned for 1 year

Grammatically & Statistically speaking, in 2033, an Australian cricketer named Warnest should get a 1 year ban!!!
