  1. I thought we agreed that we were blaming Lancashire for Vaughn. Seriously, I think he'd have been better off if he hadn't been vociferously denying it in the Telegraph. "I don't remember saying it, if I did I clearly didn't think much of it at the time, but now I see I should have and I apologise and will do better;" might have saved his job, but not everyone is smart enough to have me ghost writing their columns. Having said that, my dream Ashes TMS Team wouldn't have had him anywhere near a microphone anyway. Too abrasive, not interesting or funny enough. My commentary rotation would Jonathan Agnew, Isa Guha, Aatif Nawaz, and Henry Moeran on main commentary with Phil Tuffnel, Izzy Westbury, Alex Hartley and the inevitable token Aussie on as summarisers.
  2. Not including the hundred or so more with Genuine Rodgers Brand Immunisation Cards
  3. A question that every person has to ask themselves at some point in their lives.
  4. Don't forget that Liam Livingstone went ahead in the Longest Six chase with a 112m bomb. These are the important things: watching a man try to launch cricket balls into space.
  5. Welp, what a shame, less Michael Vaughan talking about Cricket. Get Aatif Nawaz in there.
  6. I have a feeling that Yorkshire CCC would have done well to lead their response with all the positive things that they need to do to make a more inclusive culture in their club and not "no punishment for anyone." I'm reasonably sympathetic to the argument that there might not be any one person who has said anything bad enough to lose a job, but clearly their culture as a whole is not where it needs to be. I'm going to use the example of Michael Vaughan: what he's supposed to have said is, taken on its own, relatively innocuous; especially compared to the stuff which has also been alleged. However, it does speak of a bunch of important white boys who don't know how the shit they say comes off to anyone else. Stuff something like that will not be solved by suspensions and firings, especially as a lot of the people involved will have moved on. I am upset to note that Gary Ballance has been suspended indefinitely from England duties, when his apology seemed to me to be comprehensive and heartfelt. He's been shown how hurtful the stuff he was was saying was, and taken it on board. It seems like he makes a good point of instruction in this whole sorry affair.
  7. de Kock has made an apology, says he's not a racist, wants to play for SA again, presumably on Saturday. Guess we'll see on Saturday.
  8. "Well I know that's Daniels out there in the Suicide mask, but who's that impersonating Daniels?"
  9. Hmm, well. No-one wants to hear my thoughts on race, so I will confine myself to two points. First, it is a dumb thing to not play international cricket over. Second, Temba Bavuma being SA's first Black permenant captain got me wondering about England in this regard, as far as I can tell, there are three people who may not be considered white who have captained England: Nasser Hussain was the regular captain for a few years at the turn of the century, Mark Butcher led them for one (1) test a few years later and Moeen Ali has captained England for one (1) T20 match.
  10. Didn't he get the sweet Frying Pan money when he was sponsored by a cookware company whose products he couldn't tear in half, or am I thinking of someone else who used to go round wrecking frying pans? I may have dreamed the entire affair.
  11. Well no, because England lost four wickets chasing down that target; Mohammed Rizwan tried to launch the third ball into the Persian Gulf (he actually got one into the second tier later on in the match,) and didn't look back from there. Not even Rishabh Pant knocking sixes with one hand could save India. I made a comment earlier in the year about freewheeling wicketkeepers hitting it wherever and Rizwan is absolutely part of that. Mean Johnny Bairstow is not.
  12. Complete with sound effects.
  13. Apropos of absolutely nothing, this is a wonderful turn of phrase.
  14. How very gracio-ARRRRGHHH (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
  15. I told ALL OF YOU to Boo this man, and you didn't. THIS IS WHAT YOU DESERVE.
  16. I haven't even thought of that show in years, but now that you mention it, it makes a ton of sense that they fill these shows with my favourite thing: Disappointment.
  17. Jay Cutler took them on a playoff run within my memory and was then pilloried for being far too banged up to get back in the game. Things have gone downhill, somehow.
  18. People don't get Jerry Jones rich by paying for their own jillion dollar stadia.
  19. No, I don't know why they'd want the all time greatest out of their sport either, but that seems to have been the case for a while. I kinda hope he sticks around just to piss the association off, to be honest.
  20. In the immortal words of Spider-man: "that's what you think, Melon Head."
  21. It's easier to believe that Nagy is just a total melon head.
  22. Wow. Some of his records were utterly ridiculous; and I find an argument that I came across that he wasn't the greatest because he never had a proper rival at his own level unpersuasive. He had such a rival in Asashoryu and was doing pretty well in the head to head until Asashoryu went and bottled someone. But this is a Hakuho eulogy, he was ridiculous, the best, never beaten until the fan pointed the wrong way. Still, I guess we should all be so lucky to have a last fight as good as that last one against Terunofuji.
  23. To paraphrase Rugby League coach John Kear, the Jets got zero and were lucky to get that many.
  24. Commentary on Cincinatti vs. Pittsburgh name dropped Blackjack Lanza and Edouard Carpentier. And Pittsburgh are losing, what a game.
