>Melbourne Renegades import Chris Gayle has offered an apology of sorts
>A visibly rattled McLaughlin
Fucking Christ I hate sensationalistic nonsense. Just gutter journalism inserting your personal opinion and twisting the situation and words to fit your agenda. It's not supposed to be an opinion piece.
>Leave gutter journalism to me
Even PIERS FUCKING MORGAN didn't think this was bad
if PIERS MORGAN can see the double standards here and YOU can't, then YOU should knit your socks.
>"Let's just take it as it was: a bit of a laugh from a known joker," the hockey player Georgie Parker said.

AGAIN. It's the fucking men getting offended on behalf of women and women themselves not giving a shit.
It's literally just because he's a scary black man.
Now I want to see one of the players make a similar comment to one of the male commentators - just something like "sweet cock bro" - and see whether there is a controversy.
Jman: "Perfect in Melbourne. Blue skies, a few clouds and 22 degrees at noon. #JustSaying"

They're both shit mate, but holy fuck mate the Channel 10 guys are just as much bogans if not moreso than the Channel 9 crew.
When Kevin Pietersen is infinitely more well spoken than anyone else in the commentary box then something is wrong.
The amount of Libtard will be glorious
Just watched it then, yeah she did seem pretty pissed off and SEETHING but you could hear the commentary team laughing in the background, so it's a bit rich for them to accuse him of sexism and the like when they're laughing about it until people raise a stink and for employing her in the first place purely based on her appearance.
I mean for fuck sake they even tweeted it and only took it down because people gave them shit about it and pretended to care. I mean for fuck sake it's just spineless nonsense especially considering Andy Maher said one of the West Indian players had to go coco bananas the other night and the general attitude of the commentary team.

How does he not realise that he has always been the problem?
White nights and MRAs are exactly the same.
One set thought they could win over girls by being nice to them, the others got bitter and twisted from being ignored and started hating women for it.
They literally made the star wars films about this shit.
Became a cricket fan after World Cup 2015 and fell in love with Glenn Maxwell (the exciting allrounder from Australia.) Because of him, became an Australia fan, but in reality, I only liked him. After the World Cup, he didn't seem to be playing for Australia when they came to the Caribbean (which is really close to where I live!) so I searched for a new team that would fit me better. I started playing playing Don Bradman Cricket 14, and I found Brendan McCullum’s amazing flat-bat rating (at this time, I made my Reddit account which is how I got my name.) I looked at the team, and I also found that half of the players were also really attractive (read: Martin Guptill), even more so than Maxwell. I became bored of Don Bradman Cricket as the summer went on, and I remember the exact moment I wanted to be a New Zealand fan. Our game against England- I just got home from Costco with my dad. When we got home, the game was on Willow TV. I was a whole lot more interested in watching the game than going out. We unpacked our stuff (including the best nachos in the world,) and as my dad was preparing lunch, I didn't help him and watched the game, watching McCullum, Williamson, etc. From that point on each time I woke up each day, the first thing I did was turn on the game, and I watched the final session. I realized "wow, this team is amazing." I started to watch their games more often, and then I started going on here and now I'm obsessed. My brother claims that I'm a bandwagon, but if I was a bandwagon, I'd be an Australia fan (despite Maxwell playing for them.)
TL;DR- Started likening cricket because of Maxwell, became an Australia fan, "glove didn't fit," looked for a new team, discovered McCullum, saw game on TV, became a fan.

what did the moaning cunt have to say about the Chris Gayle interview afterwards?
It seemed like harmless banter, a little unprofessional for sure but not worth having a fucking cry about.
What a fucking idiot. I'm not an attractive man so I never attention from girls and it makes my fucking day when desperate old ladies at my work make sexual comments about me even though I'm not interested in them at all.
Imagine being so entitled that someone giving you a cheeky compliment makes you hurt, embarrassed and angry.
I'm tall and fit and young looking which the old ladies love, unfortunately my face isn't great looking and girls my age only seem to like guys with gay ass beards and shit tattoos.
At least I think thats what they like, what the fuck do girls even like these days? Nothing I have whatever it is.
ah must have been statschink then. On the rare occasion that his inferiority complex hasn't taken over and he isn't frothing at the mouth, his posts can read like yours.
what happened to Chloe?
My self esteem is doing alright at the moment actually but six months ago it was literally rock bottom
Don't know how many of you were there a few weeks ago for when I posted the Pippa conversation but until a few months ago she was literally and unironically the only female in the history of my life to have admitted a romantic interest in me. Girls have never liked me, and for good reason. I'm not fucking arrogant jesus christ where did that meme come from
>what happened to Chloe?
It wasn't actually her I was referring to when I said I nearly had a gf, in case you guys didn't realise that.
She was clearly into me though, and I talked to her a bit but I wasn't really feeling it. Might go there if I get desperate
>It's doing and saying what you like and not caring about what others think.
Daniel here. I'm literally convinced this is the reason no one is ever interested in me, this is terrible advice.
I've had sex with 2 girls.
I lost my virginity with a girl and LITERALLY blew my load on the 1st pump. We never had sex again and she LITERALLY deleted me off Facebook yesterday.
The 2nd girl is my current perfect gf.
>lost my virginity with a girl and LITERALLY blew my load on the 1st pump. We never had sex again and she LITERALLY deleted me off Facebook yesterday.
Got drunk and cracked onto one of his staff in a Hong Kong bar which is a huge no no, plus he's married. She complains officially, he has to resign from the ministry, then he leaks her pic to the media.
What the fuck is Dick Smith?
What is the nearest UK or US equivalent?
I still slept over for the night and she made me sleep on the side of the bed I cummed all over.
I can still see her account, so I know she didn't deactivate it or anything like that.
She got in a relationship recently so maybe she deleted me and her temptations for my little sensitive pencil cock.
Yeah, he was neglected by his dad and spoiled by his mother who was incapable of disciplining him and setting boundaries. This gave him the dangerous combination of entitlement and insecurity which led to his anger when things didn't go his way.
He was beyond full autism mode m8, he would just go sit around places then be furious that girls didn't just come up and throw themselves at him. He made no real effort to do anything that any sane person could've though might have led to sex or a girlfriend then blamed the fact that he never succeeded on girls being worthless whores. /r9k/ personified.
It's alright. A lot of what he says makes sense, but when you get towards the end he starts becoming an extremely entitled little shit.
Yes, definitely. That's not to say his parents did a particularly "bad" job raising him, but the fact he was so spoiled and entitled as a kid seems to have made him all the more surprised when no girls liked him as a young adult.
He literally and unironically complained multiple times that his single mother was causing his life to be shitty because she wasn't marrying a wealthy man so he could have more advantages in life, at the age of TWENTY (20).
He couldn't get laid because he was an extremely anti-social, angry and self-absorbed. What he did to get laid was walk around his town at night, where other young people frequented. He didn't interact with them, or try to make friends.. he just walked around and was bemused that women didn't throw themselves at him.
I'm not joking when I say that he tells a story of different incidents where he;
>goes for a walk on a Friday/Saturday night to see if he can get the attention of girls
>he sees what he calls "thugs" with pretty girls walking around, and it enrages him
>no girls even look at him
>he goes home and LITERALLY cries himself to sleep
This happens at least a dozen separate times in his manifesto.
>He literally and unironically complained multiple times that his single mother was causing his life to be shitty because she wasn't marrying a wealthy man so he could have more advantages in life
Keep in mind he already lives in and moves around very nice and upper-class areas of California.
He did though.
Literally ever year he goes through in his manifesto he's going to his rich parents' friends Christmas and 4th of July parties and going out for dinner multiple times.
Also around the age of 20 he starts talking about how he becomes obsessed with buying expensive designer clothes and accessories to make himself look better.
The problem is that at every single one of these parties, he talks about how he spends the entire time being infuriated at one of his relatives/family friends for talking to a girl or talking about their sex life, or drinks 8 glasses of wine while feeling sorry for himself. He literally doesn't recognize that these occasions are by far the best way for him to make friends and put himself out there, despite the fact he mentions many of them each year.
I read about the first half of the Rodgers manifesto. A lot of cringe worthy stories about going on play dates as a kid and crushing over a girl he wanted to fug but they were too young. There's also that snobby,hot,rich girl that bullied him and ruined his life
He just expected girls to like him, and got upset when they didn't throw themselves at him while walking down the street.
>"I saw obnoxious slobs who dressed in basketball shorts and T-shirts
walking with hot girls. And there I was, decked out in Armani, all by myself. It was preposterous! I should
have been the one walking with the hot girls!"
>There's also that snobby,hot,rich girl that bullied him and ruined his life
Is that the girl whose name was redacted?
It's strange because as far as I can tell there is literally only ONE name in the manifesto that has been redacted and it's some random hot girl who gives him shit in middle school.
Everyone else has their first and last name on show.
ITS FUCKING HAPPENING, GAYLE FINED $10000
Melbourne Renegades CEO Stuart Coventry said:
“Chris’s comments were completely inappropriate and disrespectful. There is simply no place for these type of comments at the Melbourne Renegades.
“The club would like to extend a formal apology to Mel McLaughlin. Mel is an outstanding sports presenter. We think of her very highly and the club and players will ensure we work with her in a professional and respectful manner in future.
> it was surreal how entitled he was.
I really thought that in some parts he was being ironic or sarcastic, it was so unbelievable.
Not just when it came to girls either, but when he started high school.
>convince his parents to let him to go an all boys private high school, so he doesnt have to deal with seeing girls
>doesn't like the kids there and seethes when they talk about their sex life, so he (literally) cries to his parents to change school
>they send him to a public high school
>he gets BULLIED THE FUCK OUT, cries after a week to change schools again
>gets moved to a tiny school with only 100 students where he only has to stay for 3 hours a day and do the rest of the schoolwork from home
>complains that the other students are "lower class scum" and that he can't stand it
PUA's are retarded scum I agree with that. Rodgers had posted that video on a PUA site before he went on that rampage. The guy basically called everything that was going to happen.
>i don't even think it will be last until tomorrow desu
went and found this quote that I remember from reading it a year ago;
>Every family there must have had a net worth of at least twenty million, to be able to hire private jets. I tried to pretend as if I was part of a wealthy family. I should be. That was the life I was meant to live. I WOULD BE! If only my damnable mother had married into wealth instead of being selfish.
This is literally while he is at an exclusive and private Katy Perry concert. The next day he goes to the red carpet premiere of The Hunger Games.
You CANNOT make this shit up.
He commentates on the radio (does a god job too) and is still heavily involved in 1st class cricket.
Some scrub journo probably asked him to make a statement and he said the first thing that came to mind.
lel. Good one.
Do you think we could get this to trend on tumblr by dressing it up as a race issue rather than a sexism one?
>Gayle Christopher, a black trans professional cricket player from the West Indies (A FORMER SLAVE COLONY OF ENGLAND) attempts to apologise for a cultural misunderstanding when he commented on a white cis female's "beautiful eyes" which is a common greeting in West Indian culture.

>Pranav Dhanawade, a 15-year-old cricketer from Mumbai, broke a 117-year-old record by smashing 652 not out off 199 balls, to notch up the highest individual score in schools cricket.
That's a fair point, but if you're talking about feminism in sport, notice how there were three men sitting in the commentary box (who's initial reactions were a light laugh and to brush it off as an awkward moment we'd forget by tomorrow), whilst the token woman was given the 30 second informal interview on the sideline.
If we're being serious about sexism in cricket, at worst Gayle is a symptom of a greater problem, not the problem itself. But we're going to throw him under the bus to pretend we've done something for wymmyn.
What we have with Elliot Rodger is a rare case of (actual, not memeing) autism were he was just self aware enough to pick up on things like dress well, having and displaying wealth, superficial attractions, but not self aware enough to be able to place himself in that situation. He was able to judge and critique everyone else's place in society, but not point the same critical lense at himself.
Fuck man, I hope Elliot fucking Rodger doesn't cause me to take a good hard look at myself.
>He was able to judge and critique everyone else's place in society, but not point the same critical lense at himself.
This is literally krazykrezja when it comes to Australian cricket.
Yeah sure the comment was short sighted and a bit disrespectful but for fuck sake! How can you fine a guy for something like that? He clearly didn't mean any harm by it and what he did wasn't in any way illegal. I'm sure Mel isn't suffering lasting psychological damage after the ordeal...
Why is Australia so cucked!?
>Channel 10 employs Mel purely based on her appearance
>Has (Channel 10) in the past let stuff like this happen and even encourage it, giving Dwayne Bravo the platform to do it last year knowing what he would say with the other commentators giving her shit afterwards
>Has let Chris Gayle himself do it in the past without incident, female reporter playing off it well
>Commentators regularly say racist yet fairly harmless comments directed at the West Indian players
>Commentators are giggling in the background during this interview and even promote it via social media
>As soon as a backlash ensues they immediately capitulate, scapegoat him and remove all positive mention about it and condemn him, going full PR damage control demanding for his head
You can't just create and encourage a culture like this and then be surprised when someone adheres to it. I think the whole thing is massively overblown and think his comments were honestly fairly harmless, but the complete lack of accountability here from Channel 10 for setting it up in the first place and then condemning it once they could feel the heat on them is disgusting.
Also poor guy, coming straight off the plane and being hounded by passive aggressive "feminist" journalists can't be good for your self esteem.
This will blow over. Gayle is too valuable an asset for them to blackball him.
He is easily their biggest draw and the amount he pulls in through ticket sales exceeds the fine by a great distance.
Sydney is one of the few areas in this country which doesn't have water scarcity problems at all you moron
And considering this city has a larger population than your entire ""country"" and is running on infrastructure designed for 1/4 of the current pop, that isnt bad.
>Fuck man, I hope Elliot fucking Rodger doesn't cause me to take a good hard look at myself.
>Gayle is too valuable an asset for them to blackball him.
He is a 36/37yo slogger. He hasn't been in the BBL for years and it's been going just fine without him.
>He is easily their biggest draw and the amount he pulls in through ticket sales exceeds the fine by a great distance.
That is not even remotely the case. ACB's have no fucking idea who he is, never mind casuals (women and children). We aren't India. Shane Watson is unironically a bigger draw than he is. His contribution is purely his performance in this country. And his contribution in the Big Bash has been middling at best.
I think interstate rivalries can be fun, but let's be honest, we're talking about dotted lines drawn by British born and raised men down lines of latitude which made for convenient time zones a century and a half ago. But then you see how damn seriously some of them take it.
Like, there's nothing wrong with a bit of banter at state of origin time, but then you meet qlders who genuinely hate a state they live an hour's drive from
