Why 'Obnoxious Weed' is better than 'Monkey'

Reactions: 
Sure, Mr Hayden. 'Monkey' is racist. But calling someone an 'obnoxious weed' is great. Not insulting. Not personal at all. Especially, when we all know, Monkeyman is the provocateur in every case. The Oz cricket team is trying desperately to regain their mental advantage. Just didn't think Matthew Hayden would sink to such low comments of a personal nature. These stunts are just not required, if you can't win by playing cricket, that's when you'd resort to this sort of trickery.

Before pointing fingers at others, Hayden would have done well look at the weeds growing out of Andrew Symonds' hair. Or wait, maybe that would have been racist.

  1. All this name calling - monkey, obnoxious weed et all - is the kind of stuff you'd expect some kids to be prattling about on merry-go-rounds; hardly the sort of stuff one expects to be obsessing two supposedly mature contries to be obsessed with!

    However, if I was an Aussie cricketer, I'd be laughing up my sleeve for the same Indians who got so hot under the collar just a few weeks ago after the Sydney Test Match couldn't wait to start bidding outrageously when Symonds was up for 'sale'! Whatever the outcome of IPL, I think the Hyderabad guys need to have their heads examined! Talk about rewarding the opposition!!! I can't see any Aussie barons bidding like that for Harbhajan - instead, the poor guy's been booed at most venues. The British may have long left our shores, but we sure as hell carry our 'gora baba' fixation!!

  2. I think that the Symonds thing was probably politically motivated, seeing as how it seemed like India was against and him, and Ponting was purposely underbid because he pushed Sharad Pawar off stage during that World Cup final trophy distribution! But then again, that's my imagination.

    Yeah, but I see your point about the irony of the whole situation: the man abuses us, charges us with racism and what not, and gets paid handsomely in return; that's a good deal! Talk about the Indian 'chalta hai' attitude! And Harbhajan still gets booed when he walks in to bat!

  3. We are putting up with the Aussie antics and yet reward the same Aussies with lucrative IPL contracts. What a shame!! Its time BCCI bans Symonds and Hayden from playing in India.
