Oh Now He Says It

NWG is a cynical girl. She generally doesn't believe what comes out of official's mouths when they can offer no proof. So when she heard that Ijaz Butt had finally decided that it was time to retract the statement claiming England had taken a bribe to throw a game she thought the world had seen sense.

Now comes a flourish of apologies and u-turns from him:

"I never intended to question the behaviour and integrity of the England players nor the ECB."

"It is regrettable that there was a misunderstanding arising from my comments."

"I deeply and sincerely regret that my statements have been interpreted to cast doubt upon the good names of the England players and the ECB."

Doesn't it work wonders when you can deny deny deny? And continue lying because you are frightened of legal action.

NWG is sick of this story.

Good, can we stop talking about it then?

We need to discuss more important why the need to attach a rope to Graeme Swann when he went abseiling?

Whenever I see that image, I can picture myself going at that rope with a knife and seeing Swanny disappear towards the ground and waiting for the puff of dust like in the Warner Bros cartoon where Wile E. Coyote suffers the same fate trying to catch Road Runner.

I'm not always this evil...just to be clear.

NWG is against sabotage, especially when she's talking about England's only hope for the Ashes.

He needs to be wrapped up in cotton wool for the next month.

And yes, NWG will stop talking about this now. She's bored with liars.

...I'm bored with drink drivers :)

You think it was wise to let the only hope hang off a cliff Mare?

Maybe it was punishment for getting his pussy trapped under the floor boards?

The Nightwatchgirl said...

No cliffs, no stairs, no uneven ground, no driving, no running, nothing that could cause injury.

NWG is thinking maybe lock the entire squad in a padded cell, preferably with a straight jacket.

Stani Army said...

Straight jackets cause injury Mare. Most things do...even typing, ouch.

Stani Army said...

Your mate Andrew Symonds is back with a whole load of gems. You been reading his interview on crapinfo Mare?

They haven't published it completely yet though.

I think the ICC has gotten off too lightly. As usual, they fiddled while cricket burned.
