True, Stokes is copping it in the media here about the spirit of the game with his past discretion being listed and his current ones as well

After living in Shanghai continuously for 10 years I've come to learn that it takes very special Mainland Chinese parents to see the value in Western-style child development. Virtually ALL Western parents know the importance of "chores", "faith", "spirit" "independence" and so many other revered Western child-development values. Regrettably Mainland Chinese parent's childhood, experiences, edu system...and most notably their own families....have conspired to make progressive child-raising difficult, if not imposssible on the Mainland. On top of that, arcane school mandates and norms make it very difficult for even the most well-intentioned Mainland Chinese parent to raise a "world-class" child in China. We "foreigners" see the results of this unforntunate reality daily in the incapabilities of young chinese in the service trades or at our work places. Again, regrettably, many Mainland Chinese who want their kids to "be better", and possess the will, the means and the opportunity, would simply prefer to get their child out of China, and, increasingly, they are. Very sad situation here..especially for subsequent generations of children. While I sympathize for Chinese parents, my heart really goes out to the kids here who miss out on so much, and, regrettably are raised so one-dimensionally. "China" claims it's determined to become an "innovative" country but its development of children...the key contibutor to an innovation future...is anything but innovative!

Does the true spirit of the game exist when it comes to the press?

Of course not, controversial players are a great draw card and more gate takings. Ian Botham, a man everyone loves to hate in his playing days broke a bed having sex in a hotel room in Australia. The gate takings for that tour went up 8%.
The only real time the sprit of the game was broken was the Bodyline Series back in the 1930s
