Warne's Banned

Information taken from the SMH http://www.smh.com.au


The Australian Cricket Board, reserving the right to publish its case for the decision, today penalised Shane Warne with a 12 month ban from February 10 for using prohibited diuretics. Under the ruling, Warne will not be able to play cricket professionally anywhere in the world.





I guess he should have known better

I think that the appeal that he's launching will come off for him, and his suspension will be shortened quite dramatically.

He had to do time. Mummy giving him a pill just isn't a good enough excuse. He's a professional athlete, he should know better.

Having said that... spewin! Warney's a legend! Ah well..

warne is a great bowler. but he is also one of the most stupid people ever. his ability to get himself into trouble outstrips his ability as a cricketer. as a professional with his profile, his behaviour is appalling. and his attempts at sincerity are laughable. he should have been banned for life.

No he shouldn't have. He took a pill for 'vanity' reasons. And even if it was for performance enhancing reasons, its not gonna help much is it? He's a bloomin spin bowler, a CRICKET player.

Stupid? Yes he is, but i'm glad i'll see him back in a year.

He'll be back.

Yeh it sounds like the excuse when he took the money, ahh its cos the Indian bookmaker wanted to know the pitch conditions that why he paid me and mark 10K each

I choose to remain silent. Everything I say will be misquoted and used against me.

Why only a year when the min is 2 years. Either he's guilty or he's not. You can't give him a half-hearted sentence.

I was expecting the full 2 years for his antics.
