Cricket Australia chairman urged to quit after ball tampering review

Waugh called Australia's attempts to tamper with the ball using sandpaper as stupid

Cricket Australia chairman David Peever said the fiasco had been a "difficult and confronting time for everyone involved", but insisted lessons had been learnt and that changes would continue to be made.

Bizarrely it was only last week that Peever was re-elected as chairman, odd timing given the impending release of two ethics reviews that were clearly going to focus on the role of his organisation.

"So if it does happen or it does start to get out of control, it won't just be me, it will be a number of guys who know where we sit on that and how far we go and where we don't go".

The long-awaited reviews of Australian cricket's highest echelons have rightly inflamed the shame that wrenched so many earlier this year when three members of the Test team, including the captain, perpetrated one of the most humiliating scandals in the venerated sport's annals. "Cricket Australia, under David Peever, has overseen the destruction of the (international) image of our national game".

"There is a strong corporatisation of the board, that was a result of a serious governance review seven or eight years ago".

Katich told radio station SEN: "I think the players should see out their bans. Let them play", said Greg Dyer, head of the players' union. The Australian public will forgive and move on and they have an opportunity to really be role models to kids going forward, he concluded.

The report added: "Australian cricket has lost its balance. and has stumbled badly".

Cowboys Trade First-Round Pick To Raiders For Amari Cooper
In 2000, Jones sent two first-round picks to Seattle for Joey Galloway before the first of three straight 5-11 seasons. The Cowboys have a bye in Week 8, too, so Cooper will have a little extra time to get acclimated in Dallas .

"An Australian Cricketer walks off the field for being sledged!" Well, I think it's now officially a joke.

Among the areas for question about the review was the low level of return by current players to Longstaff's requests for survey responses or interviews - revealed to be around 30% of those asked.

The review condemned a "winning without counting the costs" culture that left players in a "gilded bubble".

"Players contributed a lot to what our submission to the review was, whether it was through a survey or interviews". The Aussie players are now wanting us to "Smile with them, Dream with them".What has Australian cricket come too. "The other thing is there's indications in there around how negative feedback is not well taken [by CA] and in some cases players decided they didn't want to do it and referred through us, and we compiled an appropriate submission".

Among many key findings is the identification of a set of "shadow values and principles" that outline the way CA actually operates, as opposed to the ideals expressed in the governing body's many codes and strategy documents.

"Cordial, friendly, there's a thawing which has commenced is how I'd describe it", Dyer said of the relationship.

Dyer stopped short of calling for Peever to resign in light of damning review findings about CA culture, noting it was a question for state associations, but highlighted the fact he had "some concerns about some of the rhetoric that was used throughout the course of yesterday".
