F1 » Webber backs 'Aussie intimidation'


Mark Webber has said that verbal psychology is very much an integral part of cricket, but accepts that it doesn't necessarily translate to his own sporting arena.

The politically correct insults they throw at each other are not as entertaining as what they could get away with in the 1980's. Too many microphones and too many armchair critics waiting to yell "racist" or "misogynist" or similar. But it is part of the sport of Cricket and can brighten up a dull period of defensive batting.

Totally agree Wylie. The PC brigade have made sports so vanilla these days its not as entertaining. Sports men and women are human and have human frailties, we cant expect them to be saints all the time because none of us can be that way, so why should we expect them to?
People should be allowed to be themselves instead of offering up fake smiles and fake humility. Keep it real i say. Some of the sledges from the old days of cricket are legendary. :)

As for Webber if you want to get inside your opponent's head it would help if you had the talent to challenge that opponent first before thinking of mind games., 2010 seems a distant memory now.
