Cheating in sport?

Never mind the scandal of cheating in cricket I want an urgent investigation into my granddaughter's behaviour in a game of snap she took part in with me yesterday afternoon. In my opinion there were some very dubious calls during the game. I appreciate that I have been very generous in calling a card game a sport but cheating wherever it occurs must be rooted out.

I agree.

Maybe a lifetime ban would be too harsh, but she should lose any Olympic funding.

Perhaps a fine? A lifetime ban seems a little harsh.

She shows promise; a life in politics could be on the agenda, or banking perhaps.

Drug check??? Had she been drinking lots of fizzy drinks? Those E-numbers ... hard stuff, you know.

At risk of a yellow card I offer a short youtube clip. Totally in context.

When one of my daughters was five years old I gave her a Rubic cube, thinking 'that'll keep her busy for a week or two'.

She took it off to her room, and shut the door. An hour later she proudly came downstairs and handed me the cube, duly completed. It took me a few minutes of sheer astonishment to realise how she had done it. She had peeled off the coloured squares and stuck them all back in the correct places.

Her entrepreneurial instincts should be rewarded.

The three cricketers and their agent have all got fairly stiff sentences, I wonder if the sentences would have been the same if it was a sport that's not quite as gentlemanly.

After all, John Higgins only got a 6 month ban & £75,000 for essentially the same offence in Snooker, although he'd only agreed to lose four frames in four tournaments, he didn't actually carry out the offence...
