Yeah, interesting. May be the end for him. Could always be a Tim Payne style story or odd events and he in again. But I think that it. Shaun Marsh has three years on him, 5 or 6 less in averages, less 100’s/50’s but still got games.

The curious case of Usman Khawaja

Lol, I thought that’s what you were also hassling.

The six-again rule is here to stay, and so are the Eels

Yep 13th. It was always going to happen. Every state having its own ground and wanting a ‘big’ game, someone has often missed our for awhile now. Fans and boards Squabbling about their 12inch’s being better then someone’s 9 because of such and such don’t help anything. Bris is my main ground. Yes it a concrete heat lamp, poor design, traffic, blah, blah, blah. I have trouble going (to more then two days) is the cost. if WA or Adelaide had the Gabba record I d be pushing for the start there. I like it there purely for result, not fussed with money, crowds or ratings. The cricket Season now days trying to fit 3 formats, tv having more interest in some more then other, touring countries not being so willing to drop everything to play in Aust, some boards saying ‘we only play 4 test’. It is going to happen that a capital don’t get a ‘main event’, CA need to put in/organise something decent. No offence to the team WA is getting, Do we make it the minors play certain smaller grounds, a capital misses a main event test gets next event in other format? I think it poor a ground missing a out on ‘big’ for the year. I think the wrong thing is being argued, and not really looking for a fix.

WACA furious about Perth's snub for India Test series

EVERY commentator saying ‘How good is this’. – Mew

Footy, yes. Hearing Rabs on my TV. No.

What are you looking forward to about the NRL restart?

It should be on birth for state of origin. It should who you signed your first contract with, if it the storm signing a 7 year old or an under 16’s. Thought has gone into it but the club, said player has skills which have been noticed. A 7 yr old or 16 might not know too much about contracts, but parents will guide and they would have a clue about SoO and who they go for. No tricks would come into it then, maybe they playing For a regional town against guys with ten years on them, great. But till the get ‘selected’, spotted by that Melbourne talent scout and sent to a private school on the Melbourne contract, it don’t matter.

Reform Origin to strengthen the international game, but don't kill the rivalry

That the trouble with draws. Play everyone once each, that fair, but they want more games. Have more rounds then teams, some play a strong team twice other players weak team twice. They not looking for what makes ‘best comp’, they looking for ‘money’

Roosters, Storm hit with tough NRL draw

Ah awesome All Day, I thought straight away old tangles, legend. I been trying to remember Proctor’s name for an hour, lol. His styles spun me out even more. Thanks. I used to spend ages trying to focus in on those actions, see what the hell is going on there. Lol. Even trying to do it when in the nets. I could never look away or see it enough, as with Bumrah it’s like a two headed calf I can’t take my eyes off.

A stylish XI versus an awkward XI

Has there even been a ‘golden run‘ by a player like that before, one longer or close to it? Consecutive games? not King Wally smashing origin. Like opposition didn’t know what to do at all. I clearly remember watching games and multiple opposition players standing flat footed, waiting, unsure, ‘should I attack?’ ‘Should I let him come to me?’. It was amazing, it was great, it was weird.

The rise and fall of Jarryd Hayne, rugby league's magic man

$300 million, wonder if they release a break down of what they do with that money.

India open to Adelaide hosting Test series

Lol

Why I’m worried about the quality of NRL journalism

Yep, it always interests me, diff captaincy styles. Taylor was top tactical guy, ran a tight ship. I got frustrated a lot at the time with the team ‘going missing’ for a dead rubber. I liked how Waugh crushed that. But he out did Waugh in tactics, but I think (for certain guys/or maybe only a few) the relationship he built or whatever it is with him, some guys would walk over coals. Really got some to rise. Border, I love that guy so much, lol. The odds and even before him though. Chappelli I think was good man manager and tactics, mean.

Why does Michael Clarke keep shooting himself in the foot?

Yep, his man management was poor. But game tactics strong. The best and you be lucky to get both in a captain are these two things. He wasn’t that bad in one, shocking almost in the other.

I think NZ come out pretty strong in the ‘championship’ when worked out, across the three different formats in this comp.

What if New Zealand had to field a side in all three formats at the same time?

Interesting stats in first paragraph Simon, nice work

The new fab four of batting... and Steve Smith doesn't make the cut

Yep, yep N. Duck. Then the abc will get hassled about their style of reporting or whatever. Lol. And yep, yep on your other points.

Why I’m worried about the quality of NRL journalism

I loved RLW, always keen for the new edition day. Cricinfo was a site I used to get into, liked their writing, Writers, style, coverage. They lost it for me when they stopped the reader’s comments, they wanted to move away from that sort of thing. I think it all comes down to management direction.

Lol. Ah, Ikin, never rated him at anything.

Why I’m worried about the quality of NRL journalism

I got sick of the ‘footy show’ style after about five minutes. If it for you, cool, ok. What would frustrate me, the station not gave two minutes of serious talk on the entire channel. I’m a small percentage, but I think there is a market for it.

Why I’m worried about the quality of NRL journalism

To me, ‘best across the three formats’ is different to the ‘fab four’ (Teats) or three or what is popular at the time.

Fair points Don.

Why I’m worried about the quality of NRL journalism

For me channel nines went of the rails some time in second half of the 90’s. I avoid the stuff I find rubbish, you find the good writers and sources, they are out there. I’m not sure if it world wide media running a mostly tabloid style ( Obviously U.S. does ), but Aust has definitely jumped in that pool. I don’t think even the station/companies who have a sport broadcast rights care if they hurt ‘their’ game, ‘any publicity is good publicity’ sort of thinking.

Why I’m worried about the quality of NRL journalism

All bowlers and batsman for that matter, have a ‘hole’. You weigh up the ‘hole’ or holes when making the assessment of the player vs their peers and others through history.

Did Shane Warne conquer Test cricket in the sub-continent?

Ha, I do remember being agro at that. Lol.

The night Cathy Freeman won gold

Then spacing them arriving and leaving. It maybe a long day

When can we go to a game of footy, Scotty?
