Wonder what Kirsten's advice is after India's exit

Apologies for the crudeness, but this just had to be posted!

NEW DELHI, India — Gary Kirsten, the coach of India's cricket team, has some advice for his players:

Have sex before matches, boys. And if no partner is available, then "go solo." It says so, right in the team's training manual leaked to Indian media.

“From a psychological perspective, having sex increased testosterone levels, which causes an increase in strength, energy, aggression and competitiveness,” the manual reads in pseudoscientific jargonese.

    Mmmm, it's part of the Indian cricket manual. Last time I checked Kirsten was the coach.

    He's trying to pass the blame onto the conditioning coach Paddy Upton. But there's no way that document gets published without Kirsten's approval.

    Either way, I find the document pretty hilarious. Some things are best told to the team verbally, and not written down.

    Well, one would presume shoaib akthar is standong proof that sex therapy doesn't work :-)
    Glass houses, stonmes, Q?
    For once, have to agree with sam. In poor taste. Didn't expect this from you, Q.

    Sameer, Raj,

    1. It was said by Gary Kirsten. It was carried by every newspaper. A denial never came from Gary. This is not made up. It was part of the manual.

    2. Poor taste? Why?

    3. Raj, why point your finger at me? I didn't post it.

    4. Shoaib Akhtar is not the only sexually active player amongst the cricketers.

    5. Sledge just asked a question.. sounds funny to me.. where's the poor taste?

    You are the last person who should be talking about poor tastes buddy!

    @Sameer, Raj: First of all it was me (SledgeHammer) who posted it. So stop bashing Q.

    Second, when have I been a defender of Shoaib Akhtar? I actually found the genital warts incident quite funny, even though I think it was wrong for PCB to release a person't medical history. But if it had to happen to anyone, Shoaib was the right person!

    Also, if Woolmer/Lawson had done this for PCB, I would have laughed even harder and posted it with a lot more excitement.

    So stop being so dramatic with the glass houses and stones and poor taste crap. I'm laughing at Kirsten because some of these coaches are a bit too interested in every aspect of the game, and just go overboard. It amazes me that people in positions of authority don't think of the consequences of something being released publicly.

    Lighten up guys. Maybe it's just India's performance that has you down. But you can still appreciate the lighter side of things. Ask Pakistani supporters of the last decade for expert advice!

    Hey Q, you know me better than that!
    Sorry I didnt notice the author.

    I have got no problems with India getting knocked out - especially since that gets the goat of our friend Sam :-)

    But somehow I couldnt find great humour in this - ok poor taste was taking it a bit far. But I didnt really find it funny enough.
