I was sorry to read about Australia's decision to drop Andrew Symonds from the team. It seems his decision to go fishing instead of attending the team meeting was the straw tht broke the camel's back. I hope he will decide to return to the team.
I am always a stickler to the rules, but really what a lame reason to be canned. I would have done the same, its not like every meeting is loads of laughs many are needed and that means everyone there.
There is no real reason other than being lazy to do such a thing. While the team might miss him and a few fans too, I don't think I would. The purpose of those meetings is not for fishing, if it were it wouldn't be called a meeting.
