What on earth is the point of having faux number plates that say "Shane"?
Are you saying "I agree with you Shane. We should be registered"?

I would rather see a jersey with "Beware of Warne" on it or something similar.

We should just get Warnie charged with dangerous driving and assault and take his licence away but give him a new bicyle with his own number plates so he can try riding around Melbourne.

Whats the bets then he would be the angry cyclist banging on cars getting in his way and still give us all a bad name.

It's just Sad that our sports heroes don't know how to behave. Must be something wrong in the kids sports teams not rewarding good sportsmanship enough only individual performance.

I think the flaw is an education system where kids don't get much beyond Year 7, then disappear to some poncy private school on a "sporting scholarship" :roll:

I laughed and even had a look while I was up the shops for those plates. I was thinking a jersey with a number plate printed across the back with "Now .... off Shane!"

Sport is very much like that, most pro sportsmen & women I've met with a huge exception to Peter Brock, Craig Lowndes and Patrick Rafter have been quite unremarkable away from their sport. Endless hours of training and competition often leaves them wanting in interpersonal skills and empathy with those outside their circle. I've met a number of pro baseballers and known a few before they went to the states to play pro and every one of them was at least a mild head case before they left.
One who pitches relief for a major league club was a regular golf partner of mine, I've thrown thousands of pitches to him at batting practice and drove him here and there when he lost his license, watched his back and got the snot punched out of me when he took offense to something said to his girlfriend and took on half a dozen blokes at Carmens, now he's a big time star he doesn't have time for any of us...
It's just the way some people become when all these people are patting them on the back, paying them loads of money and telling them they're special. Warne is in the worst category because he's a dope and a bogan. Sorry Shano but she can thin you down and dress you up but a pig in a frock is still a pig and you're never going to be David Beckham away from your sport.

+10. Spot on Steve. He's suffering a huge over-dose of self-importance and withdrawal symptoms from loss of his regular
dose of public adulation.

I'll buy the sWarne enemy jersey - anyone going to be good enough to knock out a design for us ?

I can picture a design but I'm not good enough to knock it up...

Caricature of warnie - big head, small body, holding a steering wheel, ciggie in the corner of his mouth, and the words

Swarne

Enemy

around the face centred on about 11 oclock and 5 oclock respectively.....

Actually, a number plate with the name "Shane" I thought was a great idea ....imagine a bunch of cyclists, all with the number plate "Shane" :lol: :lol: :lol:

I think many riders would be wetting themselves laughing and the bogans wouldn't get it at all - the perfect "in" joke ;)

The next best thing would be to turn up at a 20/20 match dressed in lycra and all wearing Shane masks

Champ Sys. You have to set an account up first and pay $10,000 deposit

Only if you're not cute enough to do it with freeware. Like The GIMP or other bit map editor, using screen captures
of the templates on Champ Sys's website (maybe scaled up 2 x ).

If you get to the ordering stage, they'll smarten up the graphics for you. Don't know where you're getting
the $10K deposit from - when I started an order last year for between 50 and 100, they didn't ask for that;
just payment up front (e.g. on credit card). That's how we did these for the Spring Cycle...

$10,000 does not sound like a deposit. It sounds like a full payment :!:

Everyone in the cricket-playing world knows what Shane Warne is like. This is the bloke who got banned for 12 months (should have been 2 years) for taking a banned substance (and for which he blamed his mother). The same one embroiled in any number of texting scandals plastered all over the media while his wife and kids seethed at home. The same one who apparently was paid by illegal bookmakers for weather forecasts (seems odd when these can easily be obtained for free) and pitch information. But he was an out and out magician with a cricket ball, took 708 Test wickets for Australia, and is regarded as the greatest ever spin bowler in the history of cricket, which excuses much, in the eyes of many. He would have taken a lot more, but for the aforementioned 12 month ban.

Mass adulation is actually one of the harder was to achieve that. Other forms of power and wealth
can equally corrupt - e.g. Straus Kahn and countless other wealthy businessmen.

And if you have got the money, it's really easy to hire lawyers that ensure nobody can prove you're
not a really nice guy.

OK - so here's some imagery, and I'm sure Womble 2 with his awesome account based software can do a better job with this idea :)
