So 93% of voters say Gayle shouldn't be banned.

It is typical of 'white societies' since the start of the process called 'globalization' wherein societies have been sought to be integrated to make a giant cola market for an american conglomerate to shift their guilt onto non-whites. Examples for this are many.

gayle tried to flirt or mock a white hostess. Ofcourse she was not welcoming and he didn't flow. Her male co-hosts and co-commentators were heard sniggering and laughing at her displeasure in the background. It is what happens when a lot of 'mates' get together and make it a males club. You poke fun at the odd-man-out or here it is the odd-woman-out.

gayle would surely have received many leading comments from his colleagues on how Mel McLaughlin was up for the game and he took it sportingly but was not too sure of himself and was not sure if he would end up looking like an ass, which he ultimately did and thus the hesitation all around.

Now the TV Hosts and the oh-so-sanctimonious Aussie cricket chief thinks that Gayle has to be singled out and made an example since that is convenient for him and like-minded aussies because looking inwards into what they did wrong can prove to be far more slippery and difficult.

So hey here's an easy target, a black guy .. wouldn't have made any difference if the one stammering out a proposal was an Asian/Pakistani/Indian/Bradfordian/Bangaldeshi/Zimbabwean or whatever. The point is the need of the hour was to pick a low hanging fruit and play a con game on all.

I am outraged at the outrage at the outrage at Gayle's comments. Well, something like that.... getting hard to follow. He's been an A grade prick for ages, after all.

I have believed for a while that Malcolm Knox is a classified qunt, but he had his opinions. This time he seems to have gone from a classified qunt with opinions to a drooling imbecile.

He's a generally highly-regarded cricket writer - has a few well-received volumes under his belt.

But he may have misjudged this one. And outironised himself.

I'ell you who he is,

I regard myself as someone who holds in contempt organized religion, most forms of nationalism, is a liberal and who if he could would rather spend his life reading books and getting drunk while also watching the cricket.

From his writing, Knox is the type of guy who makes me want to run outside singing the Indian national anthem, waving the Indian flag, then chant Sanskrit hymns in praise of Lord Rama, curse whitey and burn a few effigies.  

He sets my teeth on edge because he comes across as narrow minded, self righteous and convinced of his moral high ground.

In short, even when he's right, he's f*cking wrong.

It's nothing to do with it not being funny.

It's ridiculously offensive and intellectually bankrupt. Most UK sports journalists on Twitter are aghast that someone would actually try to fight sexism with racism. The reaction is just stunned disbelief that something could be so misjudged. The argument is the sort of thing the loud mouth idiot in the pub says without an ounce of prior thought. Even as a thought experiment it makes zero sense.

How it got past an editor is beyond me. Heads would roll if I was in charge. Utter c*nt.

Couldn't agree more, furriner. His rampant, tub-thumping nationalism and general arrogance skew the balance of his articles. I don't respect his journalistic style. Long story short - he's a qunt and I dislike him quite a bit

It's possibly the most horrendous, patronising, offensive thing I've ever seen in print in a mainstream publication.

The tweet in Peter's link couldn't be more spot on - a well-off white man trying to educate a black person on racism and sexism when he's experienced NEITHER. All while being stupidly offensive about a whole culture.

Gross. Absolutely, hideously gross. People I know would slap the sh*t out of this guy if they met him. But of course he'd never do an impression like that to a Caribbean man's face.

That's why I don't really get the degree of righteous anger either, PK. Bloke asks woman out - it's what blokes do.

Yes, wrong time, and wrong place - no question about it, so I'm in no way defending Chris Gayle or his actions. It was crass and stupid, and had Mel answered along the lines that she was fed up, not hard up - he'd have been well and truly put in his place. Considering the initial reaction in the studio, it obviously wasn't regarded as such a disgraceful episode until the twatterrati mob got up a head of steam, at which point both the TV execs and the cricket authorities hit the panic button.

The bloke is a grade A, first class 5 star dick, and may well be a sexist too - but I don't consider this an example of sexism ...... that label would be justified if he'd even hinted that she shouldn't be conducting the interview, or didn't understand the game simply because of her sex. He didn't even come close ..... he tried being clever and made a cock of himself in front of thousands instead. The embarrassment would usually be punishment enough.

IMO, some of the reactions border on hysteria, and do not help the fight against real sexual discrimination - which although far less frequent than in the past, is still a very real problem to be tackled. The cheapening of it in this manner won't make the job any easier.

Pretty much nailed on Growls. IMHO the twitterati brigade would of been better off concentrating on the dick he made of himself, rather than making him a martyr ( to some).
