Surely if Broad isn't happy about what Botham said, given Botham's standing in the game he could give him a call and ask for a chat, perhaps some advice, an exchange of views etc?
That applies to all sportsmen - if someone criticises you, give them a call, take on board what they say.
And in fairness, plenty of "fans" seem to think journalists, etc should be having a go and "telling it like it is". Easy said when telling it like it is stops you from earning a living and gets you sued.
