The ” elite honesty” rubbish threw me a bit as well but both the coach and captain have delivered and certainly turned our cricket around. After being dropped early in his career, Langer penned himself a note – ” dont get bitter – get better”. He did !

Why 'The Test' is a must-watch

Methinks Mitcher is quite wealthy !

Why 'The Test' is a must-watch

Please dont commence your offering with “Look”, Chuck – very rude !

Let's be grateful that we have Gill

Beautifully articulated Peter – as if country and suburban players dont have as much right to enjoy playing as the elite do !

Let's be grateful that we have Gill

True Aussie – and he played a lot of top shelf cricket for Victoria before coming to SA – a wonderful player and leader – probably unluckier than even Stuart Law, as he didnt get a go at all !

The underachievers of Australian cricket in the 1990s

I’m imagining that you are going pretty well Max. How much joy do you think those crackers would have brought the bushfire victims on NYE ? Have some respect fella !

Why I'm not watching the cricket today

Haha – I dont believe dear old “Satin” would be too pleased with this reference.

Women have been the biggest revolution in sport over the last decade

Lovely work Paul and others. The question being for us all, gentlemen is – will we take our grandchildren ?

Memories of SCG Tests past

He certainly is not !

Does the Big Bash do enough to look after Test cricket fans?

Wouldnt tie Lillee’s bootlaces !

Who's your favourite fast bowler?

No -its Geoff Miller, their off spinner, fielding at slip who took the catch, Raf.

The six greatest Boxing Day Tests of all time

Hughes knock in 81 was the best I ever saw. The opposition was terrifying, the pitch diabolical and Hughes was only on 75 when poor old Terry Alderman was last man in !
“Come the hour – cometh the man ” – it was Boy’s Own stuff, please look it up if you’re too young to remember. Hughes wasnt everyone’s cup of tea but he was the most outrageously talented Aussie batsman ever, imo.

The six greatest Boxing Day Tests of all time

Brilliant Scotty – all non vics should get a go on the MCG, as that is where the b****y finals are played. Some teams get one game there a year – while others get as many as 18 ! Hmm. Imagine explaining that to an English soccer fan ?

The AFL fixture is biased towards Victorian clubs

Because it is sexist, Mama (lol, what a farce)

Some of my favourite moments in women's sport from 2019

Good points Cracka – may I add, footy karma to haunt Dangerfield – no premiership for this turncoat !

The decade that was: Geelong Cats

If this disease comes to you or one of your’s Garry, you will find out that you will need more than a Bex. This insidious beast will visit all families and yours will be no exception – handle it with more grace than your thoughtless post above !

Maxwell edges closer to return

One of the most disgraceful periods in Australian sport history amd ChappellI played his role to a tee ! He cetainly knows the meaning of “white anting”.

Steve Smith hits back at Ian Chappell's claim he's 'white-anting' Tim Paine

Well compiled Raf – a small correction though – its Ian Davis not Davies – an exciting young NSW opener who also played in the Centenary Test. Good article.

Australia versus Pakistan: three memorable Tests at the Adelaide Oval

That’s more like it Cracka, you’ll beat that other mob by 10 big ones. (Hanneberry wtf ?)

Revealing The Roar's AFL team of the decade for the 2010s

Very overated Donny – won a Normie for just turning up – wouldnt tie Eddie’s laces ????

Revealing The Roar's AFL team of the decade for the 2010s

Spot on Pedro – a team with Kennedy at FF and Betts in a pocket would beat this mob !

Revealing The Roar's AFL team of the decade for the 2010s

Any stats on just his Ashes average, Donny ? We needed him to make runs over there – you and I will make em against this mob !

Records tumble as David Warner notches triple-century

You dont pass Bradman’s score Jimmy (M Taylor) that’s what sad about it. Can you imagine an English newspaper headlining “He’s Out ” for this flat track bully?

Records tumble as David Warner notches triple-century

Haha – lovely Eminence – wouldnt these runs flowing from Davey’s blade have been handy during the Ashes campaign? What a sad reflection of our times !

It is a sad but necessary sign of the times when we discuss mental health in a sports forum Roarers but this insidious disease is going to affect all our lives, on and off the field.
I am living it with my son at the moment who is struggling with the Black Dog and its horrible but I am afraid there is a mental health tsunami on its way. “Have the conversation” and get involved.

Mental health at the forefront of summer of cricket
