"What the f*** is wrong with you?"
International cricket star Shaun Tait says this is how some family members reacted when he took a break from cricket in 2008, citing physical and mental burn out.
As a result of that decision, Tait tells Rooster Radio that he lost the respect of the cricket community, and never got it back.
But, the ultra fast bowler returned fitter and more positive than ever, to play a key role in the Twenty20 cricket revolution.
Tait, with hosts James Begley and Andrew Montesi, talks about how the T20 commercialised cricket, the CRAZY Indian Premier League figures thrown at the stars and using those funds wisely to set up for life after sport.
True to his reputation, the Adelaide Hills boy doesn't hold back and shares some great insights with Rooster Radio listeners.
