SPINNER: Tim Lane defends Peter Roebuck’s “living circumstances” where he paid 16 youths to call him “Daddy”

THE OMERTA CODE: Sex predator Peter Roebuck preyed on young blokes wherever he went

Peter Roebuck's colleagues at the ABC - and in cricket reporting more generally - saw the sexual predator's conduct at first-hand. They kept his serial sexual harassment of young male employees quiet for decades. They are quiet still.

We don't mourn the death of Peter Roebuck. In fact we're glad there won't be any more victims of his criminal sexual predatory misconduct.
