The parallel with Dennis Lillee springs to mind. When he had done his job,as he saw it, to dismiss either or both of the openers and into the middle order,then the other bowlers could put in the overs and get more wickets.

Cricket may need to adopt the par score system to measure the skill level of its Test batters

Not to mention that they didn’t mention Ash Sampi being absolutely mauled 3 metres away.

Ten years on: Why Ten's AFL commentary still reigns supreme

Cricket Australia will be sweating on crowd capacity as well, for revenue.

Covering the costs of the empty or nearly venue is cheaper but if the English team is weaker then even a limited crowd might be more limited still.
And who knows whether McGowan will still be trigger-happy if an Ashes Test comes to town

Player withdrawals risk turning Ashes into farce

Obsessed is as obsessed does.
You demonstrate a lack of understanding about homeground advantage which is gobsmacking.
You show no appreciation for having the VFL bailed out.
I think you’re jealous.
Fewer AFL premierships than the Eagles, fewer members, beaten by them last time we played and sweetest of all, the Eagles’ first win was over the Tigers.

Flying high? Not likely, as the West Coast Eagles might be headed straight down

Not the main point I was making,if you’d read what I said.
By the way, error,there is no far west coast. That’s very weird.
When Richmond travels eight times a season, you’ll be able to talk about travel.
When Richmond players take six hours to get home, then you can talk about the imaginary homeground advantage that WCE and Freo have.
When Richmond have to nurse their better players to increase their longevity, then you’ll have a leg to stand on.
Can you say that Riewoldt would have made it to 300 games if he’d flown 1.2 million kilometres?
Your yellow and black bias is blinding you to cogent argument and leading you into logical fallacies.

Flying high? Not likely, as the West Coast Eagles might be headed straight down

Obsessed.
There may be an imaginary homeground advantage for Fremantle and West Coast because they don’t play co-tenants as much as your precious Tiggers do, but there is a distinct player disadvantage.

There have been jointly, only three 300+ players. They have more long-term injuries because of less time for recovery and senior players struggle most.

Not a problem for Tigers.
Have an hour rehab in your own rooms.
Go home in 20 minutes.
Sleeping in your own bed in the same time zone. How precious.

Flying high? Not likely, as the West Coast Eagles might be headed straight down

Darling has kicked 450 goals.
With 40 or more each year to come.
Which flat track does he play on?

Flying high? Not likely, as the West Coast Eagles might be headed straight down

Do you even know what you mean?
Darling kicks goals .
Lobb ,Taverner, not so much

Flying high? Not likely, as the West Coast Eagles might be headed straight down

OP is a mongrel. Just ask Yeo.
Watch him next year.
Naitanui is still a beast.
To enlighten all the uniformed, Jonboy, Darling kicked 42 goals this year in a dud side.
He’s kicked less than 40 goals
allowing for games played, once in ten years.
Where’s the Freo player who can match that? Or who kicked 5 in a quarter?
No use by date there.
Vardy gone to North Warrandyte, “breathes a sigh of relief”. Hickmott gone too. Not much to be sad about there.
Player profile will change as more young players get more games.
I’m all in on our top four chances for 2022

Wirrpanda read the play like no-one since. Shame about his feet.

The most unconventional grand final match-ups ever

When has Gawn been first in AFL player rankings, fifth in clearances, first in hitouts to advantage,fourth in scoring chains and so on, all in the one year?

'How long can this go on?': Talking points from yet another Geelong finals failure

Does 2018 ring any bells?
The Eagles couldn’t keep their best players on the field this year and it showed in lack of match fitness.
Gee, that bloke Gawn reminds me of Naitanui.

'How long can this go on?': Talking points from yet another Geelong finals failure

What about Caleb Daniel on Andrew Gaff?
Forearm to the head, drew blood, not even a whistle.

How to fix tribunal inconsistencies with raised elbows

The top ten players in Brownlow tipping don’t include any from Geelong
Melbourne, Dogs and Port, though..
Dees by five goals, Port by two.

The myth of the small fourth-innings run chase curse

It had never occurred to me before, so it was a new joke for me.
There is also a stereo viewer,an item of my youth,through which you looked like binoculars and inserted a disc with miniature slides, remember them, and saw a stereo image.
Cricket followers are a lot like farmers.
They listen to their grandfather and view trends with suspicion.

The myth of the small fourth-innings run chase curse

I thought for a minute that you were referring to Luke Shuey, the Norm Smith medallist…

What it means to be clutch in the AFL’s biggest moments

Exactly. We don’t ,generally, fail to achieve low targets so we don’t, generally, succeed in defending them.
Is this true of other countries?
If so, could this be because, generally, wickets don’t fall to bits on the 4th and 5th days and even the ferrets from most sides can make contact with the ball?

The myth of the small fourth-innings run chase curse

Don’t you need both eyes to see a stereotype?

The myth of the small fourth-innings run chase curse

You’re right.
It doesn’t matter which state you’re in.
Victorian Media has the AFL in its pocket or is it the other way around?
It’s only people with no long-term experience of Australian Rules Grand Finals who want a night final anyway.
Daylight makes our game brilliant for spectators and players alike.

AFL locks in timeslot for 2021 grand final

And the Corrs to sing it…

'I have very real concerns': Gutwein casts doubt over Afghanistan Test

Surprise, surprise, Kohli upsets the British media with his faux trumpet playing.
Shame the Poms couldn’t go on from 0/100.
Thakur was a gun,can I say that?
I suppose if someone else calls him dynamite, it’s OK

Catches don’t win matches: Takes from the fourth England-India Test

Channel 7 news, the AFL’s mouthpiece, said Terrorism.
SEN and Fox say different, meh.
Anytime you have three different excuses/reasons for your actions, you’re lying.
Watching John Howard taught me that.

AFL to drop grand final parade due to COVID concerns

Cognisant of the fact that Victorian fans wanted it that way.
Dewy ground , lights kick in at half-time,local fans fully consulted, yeah right.
AFL puffery again.

AFL locks in timeslot for 2021 grand final

Ditto.
Terrorist concerns were the only mention.
Perth does insanely great parades.
I smell a rat.
