Lack of character

Yo Geoff,

strikes me that the definition of "lack of character" is bashing anyone, particularly women.

Wanker.

OK, so why this particularly riles me is that said wanker is having a go at someone who publicly comes forward to say they need to deal with "emotional exhaustion". That is, in essence, depression.

Like I said. Wanker.

Ah yes, Geoff Boycott, that perfect example of wholesome attributes and perfect human character. Sorry, I meant to say perfect example of utter tosspiece shitbag. My bad.

Your memory serves you well. Days of blocking. Pity he didn't hit the ball rather than his girlfriend. Dickhead.

I am about a week late on this one - but there was a response in Cricinfo on this last week. You may recall Marcus Trescothick has had problems with depression over the last few years, that has essentially curtailed his career. Boycs, the total hypocrite, wrote an article of support for MT about 2 years - citing that he too had similar experiences during his career (hopefully against the Windies, keen to knock is block off).

Sums the man up - self centred, self serving, only attune to his own experience - no empathy, no character, and as John said, a woman beater to boot.

Just a quick note:

Peter Roebuck has contributed a fine article to cricinfo regarding stress and depression. This is well worth a read and if Boycs pulled his head out of his arse for a few seconds he might learn what character truly is.

It is worth reading this article about botham running Boycs out as another display of the mans character http://content-aus.cricinfo.com/ci/content/story/278631.html

Character is the manifestation of Truth, and Truth is the conformation of Appearance to Reality.
