More on the "substitute" row

More reactions..
Glenn McGrath - ""The only time you should go off during a Test match is obviously if you need to go off for an injury or pop off for a quick toilet break. That's it. Test cricket to us is played by the guys who are in the team. If you are not fit enough or you are looking at ways to keep your players fresh, I think that's not quite in the spirit of the game. As a player myself, I'd keep playing. You would have to drag me off the field to go off the field."
Michael Vaughan - "We just had a fielder on, he ran Ricky out with great throw. It was a great piece of fielding. [The bowlers] take a lot of liquid on board and sometimes you just have to nick to the loo."
Matthew Hoggard - "Simon was not able to walk, he couldn't field and we were not going to replace him with somebody with clown feet."

I just love Hoggy's quote..
The debate on the "perfect subtitute" is still on, but for now Ricky Ponting is poorer by 75% of match fee as a result of his outburst.
