was casually reading this Sunday Age article about Warne's new blow when this sentence leapt out with its seemingly mystery logic.
"He has been banned from using official cricket facilities and we had dramas with him earlier in the year when he turned up at training for Victoria. At the time we took legal advice and that is the decision we came to."
Warne, who has told teammates recently he is planning to grow a ponytail, has been banned from appearing because the players and former players involved will be paid for their appearances...
Que? Perhaps the phrase snuck in there as shorthand for 'forget any other (alleged) misdemeanour, now he's really becoming seriously unhinged'?
meanwhile some coaching advice from Steve-O
Ponytail?! Warney, don't do it!
If ever a bloke was born to be Ambassador at Large for the Mullet it's got to be our Shane.

seem to remember he sported that Ambassadorial style when he made his Test debut?
Suspect the mullet wasn't conducive to flippers and googlies - when he returned he'd slimmed down and shed the hair-don't- and the rest is astheysay history
However now is proably the right time to revive the mullet - retro wrong-un.
The Ponytail is just wrong.

Jason Gillespie is closer to the mark. He had a pony-tail when he started out in 1996, but shed it soon after. And at the start of this year, he's revived the mullet.
A pony tail would be very wrong on Mr Warne.

Following correspondence from the soliciting firm Shyster, Tallywacker and Lickspittle, I unreservedly withdraw comments associating Mr. Warne with mullets.
This was tasteless, hurtful and careless. The fish I should have referred to was in fact the groper.
I again apologise for pain and suffering this may have caused to any school of mullets or any individual mullet.
Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.
