I was at a friend's house when I received the message: "LOL look at what Warner just posted." The vice-captain of Australian test cricket was having a quiet Saturday night, and was a touch confused. "Can someone tell me why are showing this stuff for," the opening batsman tweeted.
FOX Sports was broadcasting Counter-Strike on their main channel, something the A-League wishes it could have more of. They even set aside two whole hours in prime-time, 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM, for the $55,555 four team invitational at Melbourne's Crown Casino. You can already guess what the reaction to Warner, a man who has been trying to repair his reputation, was.
But while it's easy to heap scorn on the diminutive opener, his question is entirely reasonable. Why did FOX Sports broadcast Counter-Strike in the first place?
