It’s no worse behaviour than normal really, but the problem he has now is the “change” in culture that is supposed to have happened, and the year long propaganda documentary he was part of. Elite this and elite that, elite sportsmanship and taking elite dumps at lunchtime. Just might as well stick to his guns, the Aussies need to be the baddies.
He needs to be absolutely squeaky clean. If he can’t see that this isn’t something he should be doing, I don’t know what to tell you. And the defense from his teammates is pitiful, oh that’s just what Smithy does, he’s a bit quirky! Also he just quirkily tampers with the ball! It being supposedly a habit isn’t fine. I bet he manages not to do it again now.
