Are you being sarcastic? :nta: No-one said the man didn't have a drinking problem, but well placed sources have stated what happened with the "gone fishing" affair and it all points to the BCCI putting pressure on everyone involved to get Harbie off his racism charge without incident. Symonds didn't appreciate being sold out by his own people over what was, at the base level, money. That's the problem with being or hanging out with whitey - you're a racist waiting to happen. Just that Symonds had the balls to play the racist card first. Seems to me that if I walked down a street in Mumbai and called someone a monkey, I'd be branded as a racist too.
