Hathurusingha harps on No Dickheads policy

Photo
Not many Asian teams go to South Africa and excel. Sri Lanka in particular have a disastrous record over there. Yet, one man conquered the last frontier. Chandika Hathurusingha took a young Sri Lanka ‘A’ side to South Africa in 2009 comprising the likes of Angelo Mathews, Tharanga Paranavithana...

I also am surprised Rex has got away with this heading. Thought it was only posted here but it is in the article.
The rest of the piece is fine.

Poor journalism. I doesn't quote Chandika as having said that anywhere in the article. So must be his own opinion.

Mr Delan I also thought Rex is doing a poor journalism. However Chandika has said that in his quote. Please check again. But Rex should be ashamed to bring that to his heading

Thanks for correct. Seen it. 1 line about 2/3 of way into article.
Then he should remove all the other stuff and only include this paragraph.

I can't see the board supporting this kind of policy when members within them act just as questionable if not worse. Publicly they may say they will but they would need to clean up themselves and for it to work the likes of Asanka would need to go.

I am happy if Chandika installs discipline into the side and takes a tough measure. However hope he doesn't go overboard and gives players down time away from game too. I'm sure he will.

Nothing worse than when coaches and managers get carried away like we say with Mikey Arthur and his homework scandal. Or suppressing characters of the game. Or when you start introducing things like curfews like England did in current Ashes and it backfires.

Guys, dickhead is actually word in the dictionary. It means ridiculous or stupid person.

So is fuckwit. Would you like to see that in the heading of an article?

Hathurusinghe says 'No Dickhead Policy' without knowing what it actually means! He is a Dickhead for using such words in an interview and Rex is a bigger Dickhead for using the word so openly, boldly, whatever. Shame on the Island for publishing such a headline.

People, Hathurusingha was just referring to the term that Australian coaches used for the culture that they wanted to instill within a sport team.

"So THEY call it ‘No Dickhead policy’."

Reading some of these comments makes me realize how conservative we Sri Lankans can be.
