Pa­thetic dis­play by the Proteas in In­dia. They should all do­nate their match fees to char­ity. And send back Vi­las, who is so in­ept at this level, it’s a joke. – Bates, New­lands

Cricket, 32 wick­ets in 2 days. A wicket that crum­bles on day one. Mil­lions lost in ticket sales. Cater­ers also los­ing mil­lions. Take a bow, In­dia. Or should I say, bow your head in shame. The spec­ta­tors who paid for five days will never get their money back. As they say in the clas­sics “It’s just not cricket “– Ron Wigley, Sun­ning­dale

If Al­lis­ter Coetzee is picked for Bok coach maybe all the anti-Meyer bunch will be sat­is­fied. Oh, I for­got “trans­for­ma­tion” comes into it, so pol­i­tics will pick the team. The Spring­boks are not the Storm­ers. The next coach will fail as well, if trans­for­ma­tion/pol­i­tics/skin colour dic­tates and I will be the first to say “trans­for­ma­tion “does not win games, qual­ity does. – Tom Han­cock, Riebeek West

I was hop­ing that Heyneke Meyer would be re­placed by a coach who be­lieves in at­tack­ing rugby. But we now have to put up with Al­lis­ter Coetzee whose Storm­ers team had the worst try-scor­ing record in Su­per Rugby for the last five years. – Ken El­lis, Fish Hoek

I don’t understand why Saru would want to take SA rugby back­ward. What are Coetzee’s in­ter­na­tional achieve­ments? – Rob­bie, Mitchells Plain.

When Al­lis­ter Coetzee quit as Storm­ers coach most supporters were re­lieved. It would be an epic dis­as­ter if he be­comes Bok coach as he would coach all flair out of them and only play 10-man rugby.


ANC, leave Zille alone. She’s the only premier who works for her money and keeps the Western Cape the top prov­ince. – Glo­ria Jones, Hout Bay

Ev­ery week we see an­other ANC depart­ment fail due to cor­rup­tion or be­ing in­com­pe­tent. Not only small mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties but SAA, SABC, the Post Of­fice etc, all be­cause of in­com­pe­tent of­fi­cials and board mem­bers earn­ing huge salaries which they can in­crease at will. All on the gravy train. How long will we go down­hill un­til vot­ers re­alise what is go­ing on?

It’s a sad re­flec­tion on the state of the coun­try that the 16 days of ac­tivism are deemed nec­es­sary. What hap­pens on the other 349 days?

The ANC chose Zuma, not the vot­ers.


So once again the French, who never fight, are or­gan­is­ing to get the English to do the fight­ing for them. – Enoch Pow­ell, Edge­mead

Could Joan Adams pub­lish her qual­i­fi­ca­tions to sit in judg­ment of Pro­fes­sor Tim Noakes and hence stop this po­ten­tial farce. – Colin, Edge­mead

Just in case your staff re­porter does not know, in re­port of shoot­ing (re Al­ban Petersen ) Lord is spelt with a cap­i­tal let­ter. – Ann, Lans­downe

With the num­ber of full-page ad­verts ap­pear­ing in the Ar­gus, they should be able to give the pa­per away. – Ge­off Husk, Ron­de­bosch

The Telkom direc­tory is the most an­noy­ing ser­vice. I called 1023 and waited two to three min­utes at a time. Once the op­er­a­tor an­swers the line goes dead. I’ve tried sev­eral times over and over. Telkom, I’ve sup­ported you for years, but at your ser­vice is pa­thetic. I pay your bills on time. Please jack up your ser­vice. – Fuad Sawyer, Wood­stock

Can some­one please ex­plain why High Level and Beach roads have speed lim­its of 50 and Main Rd does not. It’s a nar­row road with cars park­ing on each side which buses, cars, lor­ries and taxis fight their way through ev­ery­day. Then taxis make a U-turn in front of Check­ers. Just get one per­son to come and see how taxis race past each other just miss­ing on­com­ing traf­fic. – J Wil­liams, Sea Point

J Hofmeyer, the pre­vi­ous regime killed and tor­tured so that you can live a priv­i­leged life. – Faried Val­lie, Bel­har
