Apart from the moron who kept chanting Miiiiiitch-elll well past the point of amusement he turned the rest of the crowd around onto his side. Came across as a top bloke despite it being a probable career low point.
Me too. In interviews, Johnson always came across as a decent bloke and they really are the only way most of us can judge these things. Never heard of him doing anything to warrant the above abuse.

He was a great bowler to watch and probably the main reason the Aussies won the Ashes down under. Good luck to him in retirement.
