I watched the Final Quarter last night. I don't know if the audio was turned up, but the booing was sickening. Many coaches (including Hardwick: 'at best, it's bullying, at worst, it's racism') spoke up, with no effect.
Of course, Bolt, Newman and Alan Jones would not - even now - take one step back from their positions, so I wonder how many people see the situation differently in 2019 to how they saw it in 2015?
Watching Kohli support Smith at the World Cup recently made me again wonder why the club captains did not do more. I know Cotch would be more influential than Hardwick,, for example.
