It’s just not cricket
Very painful loss again to Sri Lanka – because the T (together), E (everybody), A (achieve), M (more) no longer exists in this team. Please stand up for your loyal, fanatical fans. Drop Jacques Rudolph, Ashwell Prince, Mark Boucher and Morne Morkel.
Someone forgot to tell Biff and co they were playing cricket (where the highest score wins), and not golf.
Cricket captains get what they deserve. Please appoint a new one.
My blood really boiled at the way white man Steyn was insulting the Sri Lankan cricketers, probably in a language not understood by them.
The cricket changes should be as follows: Out – Rudolph, Kallis, Prince and Boucher. In – Peterson, Ingram, Duminy, Miller. It’s time to bring in the new blood.
What has Peterson done wrong to be so ignored? How long will Boucher and Prince be carried when Ingram and Miller are waiting in the wings? Invest in a solid glove man and allow him the opportunity to settle. Sekunjalo ke nako.
Drop the useless Boucher, Prince and Morkel and move Smith to number four in the batting order. He can’t handle the opening bowlers any more. And bring back Duminy.
On the road
What an idiot! Now the authorities are to blame for the accidents on our roads. Are we not responsible for our own actions? Are laws supposed to be only adhered to when policed?
Is there an SMS number to report traffic violations?
Silver Ford Ranger bakkie on the N2, 7am yesterday, heading for Sir Lowry’s Pass. The driver was tailgating, overtook two vehicles on partiallyblind bends and hightailed it off – after throwing a foam mug out the window. Dangerous, discourteous litterbug.
As a teacher at West End Primary in Lentegeur, thank you to Juventus soccer club for all the good and positive work they do with our children.
How can l get rid of moles? Please, no jokes.
I find it funny that all these guys commit murder in their own countries, then come and hide here in South Africa. Then, when they get caught, they want to fight extradition because they fear for their lives. Surely they should have thought about that before assassinating someone?
There are lots of people out there who have a driver’s licence but who can’t even drive. I know of at least three.
Cape Town’s film industry is definitely racist. And I have lived and worked in Hollywood.
During the worst times of the apartheid era, my attitude remained that I had no control over the words and actions of others. What I did have control over was my reaction to those racists. I chose a positive path which worked very well for me. Maybe that’s what Simphiwe Dana should do. Changing other people is almost
impossible. Changing yourself is easier.
Dana and Suttle, I can recommend a good panelbeater for those chips on your shoulders.
Chinese nationals accused of illegal possession of ivory: If they are found guilty will the NPA ask for the death penalty and send their ashes back in a packet of biltong?
There are few Egyptians in Cape Town. They are all busy sorting out the troubles in Egypt. Instead, we have an over-abundance of Rhodesians and Zimbabweans whingeing incessantly, rather than returning and doing an Egyptian spring clean-up.
It appears that Selebi is suffering from more ailments than you can “Shaik” a stick at!
Trevor. Given the levels of unspeakable cruelty suffered by animals at the hands of so-called civilised humans in SA, it speaks volumes that any animal charities manage to rise above the daily horrors of their work and carry on the fight. Your remarks about our SPCA are equally unspeakable.
Ministers’ housing. What a joke. R700-odd rent for a R6.3 million house. That’s excluding the extras. I paid R700 a month for my R55 000 house. Now it’s paid up and it’s mine.
It must be National Humour an Idiot Week! First Sheridan, who was unaware there are sports stadiums in Newlands. And then some clown suggested we should only drive responsibly when traffic police are visible.
To the deaf, dumb, blind person who moved from Fish Hoek to Newlands and says he did not know about the stadiums, wake up.
To Ruth of My City Works For Me. The only reason your streetlights were repaired so quickly is because you live in Milnerton, and not the coloured townships.
So Rajbansi has gone to the happy hunting ground. All political hypocrites now praise him, conveniently forgetting his misdeeds.
Re proofreading and frequent spelling and grammar errors. For two days now a death notice has read: “It is with deep sadness we learn’t ...”
