Alistair Nicholson, the Australian Cricketers' Association chief executive, indicated that most players felt more comfortable contributing to the ACA's own submission, noting that the review itself cited CA's inability to handle negative feedback.
Smith and Warner are some seven months into one-year bans, while Bancroft will be eligible to return in December after his suspension for attempting to tamper with the ball during a test against South Africa in Cape Town in March.
"Yes, this moment of madness but now there is evidence and independent verification of system failure as well", Dyer said.
With this new information common sense, common decency, basic fairness, proportionality and natural justice demand that the punishment is reduced.
Cricket Australia chairman David Peever is refusing to stand down after a review of the institution uncovered a culture of "bullying" and "arrogance", in the wake of the ball-tampering affair.
The scandal involved the three players conspiring to use sandpaper to illegally alter the flight of the ball in the third Test against South Africa in Cape Town. Cricket Australia's board handed the Cape Town trio unprecedented punishment for the specific reason that they were deemed to be exclusively responsible for bringing the game into disrepute.
A scathing review into Australian cricket has condemned a "winning without counting the costs" culture that left players in a "gilded bubble".
Dyer and Nicholson refused to speculate on what course of action it would take if CA rejected calls for Smith, Warner and Bancroft to return to action. "Let them play", said Greg Dyer, head of the players' union.
So how then, can Cricket Australia commit to turning over a new leaf, as they must, and actually listen to an entirely reasonable argument? We've got to make Australians proud.
"So he's going to have to mentally overcome that and find a way to sort of get past that but at the end of the day he's an outstanding cricketer and averages 60 in Test cricket, second only to Bradman over a long period of time, and he loves cricket so I'm sure he'll come back".
"Their measure is recorded in runs made, wickets taken, matches won, world rankings".
Of the stakeholders who responded, the majority said the sanctions were a positive demonstration of Cricket Australia's "Be Real" ethos and also in the important "Spirit of Cricket" category.
"We would obviously hope to receive more responses than that", Roberts said this morning.
After more than a year of bitter feuding, CA and the ACA have been encouraged to have a "constructive working relationship", and told to begin this process within 30 days.
CA has also been urged to conduct a major review of its high-performance unit - Howard is leaving next year - and encouraged to have anyone associated with the high-performance unit banned from taking part in industrial negotiations with players.
