Default Chuckers in international cricket

Recently Lawson has been reported for chucking. Shabbir Ahmed is another one in the list and after checking he was found bending his arms by upto 27 degree!!

The list is quite big starting with Murali, there goes two Shoaibs, Lee, Harbhajan or even our Razzak.

What do you guys think guys about the bowlers with suspected actions? Should we be sympathetic for their mental sufferings after being reported, or should we not because they are just cheating?? (Think, how one become international cricketer with a 27 degree bend!)

looking at the mushroomesque growth of chuckers,icc soon will come up with 1 chucker per team rule.but only within 25degree.

if we filter out the chuckers (shoaib, lee, murali, harbajan, afridi...) not many good bowlers will be there in world cricket

What about James Kirtley. I have a video clip of his bowling, his arm is very bent:

I mentioned on this sight several times that I think Kirtley is a chucker. Also Gough with his old action seemed a bit iffy to me at times past.

no Gough never chucks- there's a huge difference between bending your elbow/arm and using your wrist although from the naked eye it looks pretty much the same.
That is another reason its know that leg spinners can never chuck.
gough clearly uses his wrists. So does Flintoff because if you look at his delivery stride, he uses plenty of wrist action to hit the deck, producing movement off the seam and sometimes jag it back into the right-hander.
