- Well the dust has finally settled on the Australian cricket team’s cheating scandal.
- A scandal that made international headlines for weeks on end split public opinion, rocked Cricket Australia to its very core and had Australians across the nation questioning what is right and wrong.
- Over time we learn no one likes to play with cheaters and it defeats the purpose of the game.
- So when the cricket scandal broke, although shameful behaviour, all it taught me was that it was a little sad these national heroes never learnt the basic lesson that cheating is wrong.
- One was that many people pointed out how wrong it seemed that players being caught cheating garnered so much outrage from the nation, yet the, sadly, regular occurrences of players using illegal drugs and committing (actual) crimes barely seem to register on the outrage scale.
