Yeah I liked that one matth. A mate and I spent time working out the ave run’s for the Australian team by captains. I can’t remember much of it cause we were 13/14, poor at math (I was a ‘math in space’ kid).

Cricket’s debatable statistics: Whole career versus peak performance

Hi Pope. My memory is poor. Lol. He did all right at Aust’s ‘get together’ test i think but for the Pakistan in 1980 he didn’t. Don’t think he played in the 1980 centenary test. I think he retired end of 80/81, he was mid 30. Too many decent young guys coming through

I meant during WSC. Doah

Cricket’s debatable statistics: Whole career versus peak performance

Hi Peter. WSC did pick some so so ones but overall the WSC Aust team was stronger then the official Aust one. Dymock was pretty much gone after WSC and some good young bowlers coming in if my memory works. Who would Cosier, Dymock, Yallop, Woods, Yardley and Higgs replace. What would be your ‘joint’ team from all available after WSC to 82 or so, pick 17 I don’t like picking 12. Lol

Hi josh. Is that really a down side though? Waugh’s highest wasn’t gigantic. If a guy has 10 centuries, highest being the one double, another has 4 100’s and two being triples. It all a juggle.

Cricket’s debatable statistics: Whole career versus peak performance

Yep, all those differences, home vs away and such, we looking for ‘one’ thing that covers the lot. With some many differences it can’t happen, everyone play the same amount, on the same field, against the same bowlers and same fielders. I like the differences, finding out this guy didn’t play spin as well or another guys had a run that was fantastic for ten tests. I think one thing that don’t come into it enough is judging them against their teammates or even a generation to include all nations. If Bradman had it so easy cause bowling was not as good, all his teams ave’s would be up. Ponsford did some big scores, but not as often as Bradman so his ave is down. Was the ave higher for all players in the generation is Bradman time cause the bowling. I’m just using Bradman as example, I think you use it for anyone against the contemporary players during their time.

Who?

Tribalism is capped and it will take more than conferences to fix it

Lol. That’s how I am with the sports guys I like, I don’t want to bug them, say something they heard a million times and I have no real clue about, lol, or just have them feel uncomfortable cause i say ‘man I love you’.

Season 2021 has shown us we should be optimistic about rugby league

Hi matth. They all good’uns. I think Daley and Clyde did pretty good off the bat. Brandy was a bit like SCG McGill being unlucky Warne was there.

Hi Ben. I’m with you, ‘longevity’ does get recorded in the number of test tally. I like the 52. The 20 block is harder, players now can get that in two years. I also have a feeling (I have no real clue) that if your playing more, possibly you’d get better. If O’Reilly played ten test a year would his record get better from playing more?

Hi DaveJ. Nice idea but then think it get caught when the inevitable happens of comparison across multi era’s. All the decades where playing ten tests a year didn’t happen.

Hi Forty Twenty. Yeah Guth good and competent but Turbo is up a level.

Eight talking points from NRL Round 9

Hello Smoked. This going to lead to a sort of effect of dumb action/people you can’t talk about (and I’m not condoning anything). But you didn’t see Haynes couple of months a decade or so ago?

Eight talking points from NRL Round 9

I thought I heard the commentary say eels hooker come back in right at the end?

Eight talking points from NRL Round 9

Does anyone know of any people doing something good on YouTube? My kids got me on the that thing (yeah I old). Getting right into guys making tables in there garages. It makes a difference when the easy to watch, know their stuff and not annoying. I looked for league stuff but not found anyway ‘breaking plays down’ and stats. That would be tops

Equal would time would make it very interesting. There would be whinges. Surely dirty stuff would stop

Does Dylan Brown deserve a lengthy stint on the sidelines?

Double what latrell got would be six

I think big Mal got Terry back for Hanley

Does Dylan Brown deserve a lengthy stint on the sidelines?

I thought Latell got three weeks, an extra week for not pleading?

Hi Walter. I wrote a response here hours ago but must have failed to press send. I think he a good tactical football brain, just a prickly character. Maybe be more suited in a setup as an assistant, don’t seem to have the Bennett and Bellamy ‘empathy’ with players. But I’m Guessing. He was mostly ‘not’ the captain in his playing days wasn’t he? I’m sure he had input and cracked a team mate for stuff, but another guy inspiring to lift and such. But like Paul had said, I’m waiting for the announcement ‘he has full support of the board’

Soured milk: Have the Raiders and Sticky reached spoilage?

Yes, yes. He wasn’t Ricky in the field, just a guy. Lol. Tops to happen for him

Baggy green tail-enders: Every run counts

Oh yeah McGill was pretty clueless bat. Lol. Like most all of Waugh’s style, in a way it put pressure back on the fielding side. If you got to protect the guy at the other end, not take a run so they don’t have to face. That putting pressure on you and him. Lol. Yep, take that option away from the fielding team, they got to ‘think’. Won’t always work, but he backs it, backs his team, backs himself. So weird, the amount of times I’ve heard Chappelli talk of how he backed his guys, batting and playing. Lol. Or backing O’keefe to open? Lol. I don’t follow.

Baggy green tail-enders: Every run counts

That’s me also Paul, the enjoyment of watching a guy not doing a part that’s not his strength. The dream of playing, I think it’s the closet to imagine myself in the game, how I’d go/manage/handle it and the difficulty.

Baggy green tail-enders: Every run counts

Hi Kay Merda. What would happen to a union player in Browns situation? I’m always poor at picking the ‘sentence’, if he plead and not get the sort of ‘Parker direction’ extension like Latrell, what has been similar in history?
