Unfortunately  being a top sportsman & " attitude / ego " seem to go hand in hand in a lot of cases , as we have seen in the past by the many complaints / charges  against other players / sportsmen . $ 10,000  too much or too little ?..............I suppose it's all relative to your means / earnings to make it a deterrent  , but  we aren't living in the seventies any-more , and racial , or sexual connotations or condescending  comments aren't as excepted these days as they used to be , so I would say , suck it up buttercup , & engage your brain before your mouth next time .

I must be a sexist pig then 'cause all I saw was him paying her a compliment in a flirtatious way.

Nah mate it's just the way political correctness has gone overboard ....................you have to be so careful who you say what to these days  Evil or Very Mad  Like I said in the seventies it would have been an indirect compliment , but not now. If your in the spotlight you have to really watch what you say or do .( probably the genuine cases have made it harder for everyone as well ) Like I said suck it up & learn from it........ it's just the way it is . Rolling Eyes ( maybe ask her out off camera privately instead of so publicly  )

It's way over the top, political correctness gone wrong!!

Nothing he said was offensive or disrespectful.

You might be right, he might be a slimy littel turd but i this case I don't reckon he's has done anything wrong or at least worth the attention he's getting for it.

Personally I think this is being blown out of proportion by channel 10 for the publicity more than by Mel McLaughlin being offended.

This is refreshing, some common sense for a change

Georgie Parker, Australian Hockey Player wrote:
"Let's just take it as it was: a bit of a laugh from a known joker," 

"I like to be told I'm pretty sometimes too. That's all he was saying."
Parker also suggested if she acted in the same way towards a male interviewer, "I'm fairly sure no one would blink an eye lid".



and for those that haven't heard of Georgie and think she might need a bit  of flattery to make her feel good..........

The whole things a joke. All it will do is get a few more females along to the matches that this "Bad" man plays in.  All cricketers should band together and say, well if this is way it is going to be, then we won't do any interviews . Full stop.

Think we can only insert YouTube videos so the links will have to do.

Don't blush Ewok

Sounds like typical "Bull Shit" to sell news paper!!!

And they call this front page news????  Please!!!!

I wish some journalists, and so called "Do Gooders"...would get a life!!!!!!!

There`s more important things in life, than so called sports stars, and self righteous celebrities, trying to tell me what I think is right and wrong with life!!!!

Any time you turn on the TV, there`s some puppet wanker, being controlled by some corporate fuckhead puppeteer,
spreading shit to the masses....and the funny thing is, people are attracted to it, like flies to dog shit!!!!

Fuck the cricket. If I was single she'd be perfect, she even likes hockey Smile

Back on topic pretty normal Australian news story to be honest. Chanel 10 need to do more than that for anyone to watch their shit, one HD home of motor sports..... please
