0Om boo of nie om boo ...

Gedurende die eendaagse world cup daar deurlopende bespreking is onder die kommentators oor die reaksie van die skare om die 2 Australiese cheats. Eoin Morgan het 'n posisie nie neem en het gesê hy voel dit was nie moeite gedoen om hom aan die ondersteuners wat om te doen of dink vertel. Virat Kohli gevra ondersteuners die paar nie om boo in 'n positiewe gebaar wat dalk het hulle nie verdien. Voormalige Engelse spelers, insluitend Graeme Swann het baie negatief oor die uitjouery was, as baie Australiese ex-voor-. So, wat is die kyk publiek om te doen?

We strongly dis­agree with those who have attacked sup­port­ers for boo­ing. Smith and Warner were guilty of cheat­ing, maar meer as dit, they behaved in a way that would­n’t be accept­able in almost any oth­er walk of life. The anger towards them was about more than a bit of sand­pa­per. It was about their utter dis­respect for the spir­it of crick­et and the ter­rible example they were set­ting to future gen­er­a­tions. Warner espe­cially has a long track record includ­ing (but not lim­ited to) punch­ing Joe Root in a bar a few years ago, telling Rohit Sharma to “speak Eng­lish”, squar­ing up to Ran­gana Herath, and the infam­ous abuse dir­ec­ted at Jonath­an Trott. Hy het baie meer kanse gehad as wat hy verdien. I would prefer not to see him selec­ted to play inter­na­tion­al crick­et any more.

How­ever, one good point has been made about boo­ing. It often fires play­ers up and drives them to play at their best. Warner, byvoorbeeld, behaal het baie lopies in die Wêreldbeker-toernooi.

so, we have a pro­pos­al. Don’t boo reg­u­larly. Don’t do any­thing at all. Deur en groot, main­tain a dig­ni­fied silence. Send a mes­sage that they aren’t wel­come but also that they aren’t worth the effort. If every bound­ary is greeted with deathly silence that sends a much more potent mes­sage. Save the boos for a major land­mark. Ignore the per­form­ance until a cen­tury is made and then boo loud and clear.
