FB's action follows the fine and ban imposed on Danish pace bowler Nicholas Bendtner who gave an shocked worldwide TV audience a gratuitious display of his pants in a recent Euro 2012 match. Bendtner explained that the pants, which were a lurid green colour and advertised an on-line betting firm, were lucky pants which he had also worn in the previous match. The luck presumably comes from the large fee he might have attracted for wearing and displaying them. But even worse, there was no indication that he had washed the pants in between wearings. No punishment is therefore too high.
FB has failed throughout his long career to find a sponsor for his pants, neither Marks and Spencer nor Anne Summers expressed any interest, although he did get an interesting range of free samples from Anne Summers. He found they were not ideal for cricketing purposes, there being no natural place where his box could rest while in his normal stance. Since throughout his career FB and luck have been ships that pass in the night, FB has to assume that he has never had a pair of lucky pants. Or maybe his rejection of any opportunity to wear bright green pants has caused Lady Luck to turn her back on him.
In any case, his players are now fully aware of the rules and no gratuitous pants displays are expected for the rest of the season.
