"Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence: in other words, it is war minus the shooting." - George Orwell

One would think this little period in between Tests of the Australia versus New Zealand series would be a quiet time, yet two headlines ensured the Australian cricket fraternity still had plenty to discuss.
I have nothing against Shaun Marsh the person. I’ve never met him, and I’ve never even spoken to anyone that knows him intimately. From all reports he’s a nice guy, and he’s unquestionably a talented cricketer.
You may be wondering why one of the worst teams in the NBA warrants two articles in two weeks. It’s a fair question, but it’s also an easy one to answer. Quite simply, even when the Los Angeles Lakers stink, they somehow remain a news story.
I made a promise to myself that I would never do two things in my writing career: criticise referees, umpires or officials, or ever suggest that a coach be fired.
On the weekend I read an article on Fox Sports website, in which the subject matter was so completely and utterly absurd, I honestly had to read it twice to ensure I wasn’t suffering sleep deprivation, thus resulting in me interpreting it incorrectly.
The NBA tips off again tomorrow, so there’s no better time to play the role of B-grade basketball Nostradamus and make some predictions for the upcoming season.
