Australian Selector (Aubrey): People are reluctant to part with their money, and they certainly won't do so, if they can't watch Bradman.

Australian Selector (Robertson): The game is more important than the individual. If we allow ourselves to be dictated to by players, who knows where it will end! One day matches for the convenience of the press, later starting times for the convenience of radio stations!
