Black Caps fail to step up

Over the weekend, the New Zealand Warriors
showed heart, and show guts and came back
from their worst loss ever a week ago to win,
by outplaying the newcastle knights, it was a
courageous performance that got them back into
the good graces of the public.

The same cant be send for the poor excuse of
a sports team known as the blackcaps, how one
team can make the same mistakes over and over
again, is beyond me, it's not like it's just been happening
over a couple of seasons, these same mistakes have
been happening for decades, and it seems to be
from the senior players.

Most international cricket teams go through the same
sort of cycle, a period of winning and success, followed
by a rebuilding period.

The New Zealand cricket team seem to go through a
period of feeling sorry for themselves, blaming the
coaches, blaming the public, heavy drinking and
heavy smoking sessions, loss after loss, after loss,
the senior players never take responsibility, it just
goes on and on.

It's gotten to the stage that the public doesn't care, kiwi
sports fans dont care if they win or lose, and that is
because the players don't, the player's know their
bread and butter is the IPL, so why bother taking
tests seriously.

Well Mr Ross Taylor and Brendan McCullum, the
public now have more of a sporting choice, unlike
the old days, and I'm guessing one day, cricket
will not be on the minds of the NewZealand sporting
public, thus no money for just turning up and losing.

Here's hoping the players will change their attitude
and fight for their country.

I anit holding my breath though.
