The web is overflowing with comments that stir Afridi's dinner and the retardation of the blond protozoa into one pot and juxtapose them, obviously falling prey to the suggestion that these things are comparable for some reason because they happened in the same match and are shown in one video clip together.
Let's draw a line here.
The running shrinkbrain hasn't been punished hard enough. Our current finance minister sits in a wheelchair because of a shitbird like him. Latif could be in hospital or dead. Finding this incident "funny" and moaning about the life-long ban is inappropriate and thoughtless. Please guys get to reason. Security is obviously and visibly not trained well enough, it speaks for itself that Wiggum was the first to reach the attacker, while his slender colleagues were even further behind, although he could hardly get up from his knees again when they had taken the invader down. If it corresponds to the official regulations that this incident goes to the ICC I don't see a reason to ridicule this move. If it needs the interference by the ICC to employ suitable personnel then be it.
CA apologising to the PCB is laughable at best. The idiot didn't attack the PCB but Khalid Latif, and apart from that, acting would be a much better response. I do not think that an alcohol ban, as suggested by the Pakistani sports minister, is a considerable solution here, simply because drinking is a part of cricket, that's a matter of fact. Also it can't be in anyone's interest to put up huge fences like in football, to separate the zombie hordes from the players. Cricket is thinking man's sport and women bring their knitting stuff to the matches and produce socks. I have seen it during the Ashes. And look at these beautiful grounds in New Zealand for instance, where the fans are sitting right at the rope. It would be a punishment of the vast majority of wonderful cricket fans to overreact like this. What can be done is simply to be more watchful and only employ personnel that has actually passed the aptitude test, instead of turning the spectator area into a high-security prison.
On the second matter, Afridi received the maximum punishment and two matches are absolutely BITTER for the Pakistanis, as T20 is their only hope to actually win a match currently. The penalty does not only hit Afridi, but the entire team gets fredded up the backside by it. Not hard enough?
Yes it is a scandal that Broad got away but I would definitely not want to blow into the same horn as Stani for instance, who suspects racism as the reason for these double standards. First of all what race is Afridi? Half milk choc latte macchiato with a hint of cinnamon* sort of person? ;) Secondly, Broad wouldn't have got punished either if he was orange, green or purple. You obviously think that his origin means it has to be racism because in Europe there is no safarshi system, but I am sorry to destroy your illusion on this, and if you look at the FIFA for instance you will bring your lunch back up, it is like Ancient Rome :D Apart from that Afridi has a history of dumbomumbo behaviour, so this will have influenced the decision additionally. They will also want to prevent a second Barbiegate.
