You reckon the blazers in the ECB throwing Ollie under the bus have ever said anything in the past as mature adults which was worse than what Ollie said in his teenage tweets???

Meh.  It's his own fault for being an eejit.  The ECB have to mete out some form of punishment, but I hope it's short, and we can all move on.

Another one on the way out because of a tweet before he was 16! This is like the Spanish Inquisition. Do any other countries examine tweets from 10 years ago?

Our media is completely out of control - unaccountable, rabid, and lying at will to suit their own agenda. This is the sort of thing that comes out in the wash - the ECB are in a tough spot on this - easier to throw the book at him than excuse it on historic grounds/age - they'd be accused of all sorts if they'd let him off

I believe in an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.

So if the cricketer wrote something nasty about someone, then write something nasty back about him and let him continue his career.

Job done.

Picture this scene.

England vs India test match

Someone backs India at 3.00 2 days before the game

On the night before he releases some screen shot tweets claiming to be a key England player (say Stokes, Butler etc) saying un-pc things.

ECB have set the precedent now so have to suspend while under investigation

India price tumbles to 2.00

Dangerous game they are playing

don't even have to be real tweets - could be 100% manufactured - but the press will jump on them and the ECB will have to act.

Here's the problem.

If we look at the post immediately before my first post here, the poster calls the PM a racist.

In a free country that is allowed, but if we continue down the road we're going, someone in the future might go back and take the poster to task over that insult.
And then we'll see how that poster likes it.

The staggering hypocrisy of the post is there for all to see.

Agree with Father Maguire,media in this country are superwoke whether its BBC,ITV, Ch 4 ,SKY ,all sing from the same woke /diversity hymnsheet ,and most newspapers although not as bad ,love a good story .so flame the flames .ECB as he says ,take the easy way out ,suspend ,ban .pending investigation .God help us if we are all held accountable for things we said or wrote when teenagers.
Report qwerty135 June 10, 2021 8:56 PM BST
Hard to understand why anyone has to point this out, but wokeness and diversity are good things, not bad ("woke" = "alert to injustice in society, especially racism").  I want to see OR back soon, especially after such a promising start, but the ECB didn't have much choice but to take action, and it didn't help that this came out on the day they launched the Moment of Unity thing:

The front of the T-shirts carries the message: 'Cricket is a game for everyone'.

There are seven different designs of the shirts, each one featuring a different message on the back.

The words on the back begin 'We stand together against', before one of 'racism', 'religious intolerance', 'sexism', 'transphoboia', 'homophobia', 'ableism' or 'ageism'.

The real question to me is why the ECB and none of OR's counties found this stuff before.  He could have deleted his account, and no-one would have known that he used to be an eejit.

Maybe because the ones perpetuating the woke agenda come from privileged backgrounds, or occupy privileged positions.

I can't wait to see the slogans on the T-shirts today. Make no mistake those 'woke' T-Shirts will surely soon eliminate all the bad things this country experiences.

I wonder which player will wear the one reading "WE STAND TOGETHER AGAINST ISLAMIC TERRORISM, SUCH AS THOSE WHO MURDERED CHILDREN AT THE MANCHESTER ARENA". I would have thought that Root himself would want to wear that one and demonstrate true leadership.

Ahem, English Cricket CHOSE of its own free will to become political, to give a voice to various causes and to try and distance itself from Robinson's boyhood Tweets. I'm simply offering English Cricket a far more pressing priority for their T-Shirts, unless of course they are simply sloganising just to appear ‘woke’ and ‘progressive’. Perish the thought.

I think we’d all agree my suggestion is entirely sensible and worthy. I therefore fail see how standing against Islamic Terror is “filth”. Most of the Free World unfortunately finds itself fighting against that very threat every single day. Cricket itself has been impacted severely by Islamic Terror, but curiously the sport seems to have forgotten that.

The ECB are going to go through all the records of the England players looking for similar comments.
What's laughable is that the players look like they're going to stand for it.

They should all walk out pronto.
Which is what they should have done from the start.

It will shake out and is nothing to do with cricket. The real crime is the payment of players for doing nothing. I don't think Butler has played a Test Match this year ( not that I think he should have ashley ) but is on a Test Match central contract. I think he might be on close to a million pounds a year!

Julie Burchill lost her job for tweeting....good!

Katie Hopkins lost her job and her home for vile libelling of a fellow journalist!

Nothing wrong with that!

What is wrong is that Robinson was suspended, that is down to people who lead the game in this country
