Leaders can't go back on their morals

Both Ponting and Smith would not be wrong about confirming the bullying behavior. You really don't have to be a genius to see it happening on the field. Success can lead to this type of thing, especially when the established players think they did it all and think it's their job to intimidate the newer guys. If the leadership allows it to continue it becomes a team culture and you very suddenly end up where England did. All sport is about confidence.Those that undermine it are not team players and should be kicked out if they don't change. KP is no doubt a handful to manage for being outspoken at the wrong times but he was dropped because his performance deteriorated. If you want to rock the boat, make sure your own performance is better than beyond reproach.
