BTW, sledging has been perfected in the NBA, where it is called trash-talking. The player has to walk a fine line, because too much and the referee would issue a technical. Two technicals in a game and you are out.

David Stern trying to make the NBA palatable for the suburbs, despite all the players being from the inner city.
Now trash talk in the NFL - that's where it's at.
