  1. That was my first post ever criticising Rimmer. For someone in his position, it was unacceptable, and deeply embarrassing for the sport because it was directly related to it. Deserves no tolerance. THEN you add on that it’s just before the major showpiece of the World Cup and it’ll give those who don’t like rugby league yet another thing to point at.
  2. I voted that he be booted, he knows better, or bloody well should. He's not a junior employee or someone who can be excused as making an unintentional mistake.
  3. Will be interesting to see how Martyn's poll on Twitter ends up:
  4. One post removed, please don't post other folk's sweary reactions from Twitter.
  5. We have jobs, you know, I'm a volunteer moderator, and John has to deal with all his work stuff. If we don't get to things quickly at times then that's no excuse to treat it as an excuse to go overboard yourself. A bunch of posts deleted.
  6. 2022 responds: "We're sorry to say that the test today has resulted in the asteroid diverting from a safe orbit into directly aiming at Earth, it'll be here in a couple of weeks"
  7. 27 posts removed. Broad brush, I have probably missed some, and got others just because they replied to a post I binned. Thread kept, please keep on rugby. I have kept other sport posts as they’re useful commentary.
  8. I’m on holiday. I have no time I want to spend moderating this forum. I will pre-emptively suspend folk I think won’t keep it civil while I’m out for a beer.
  9. I decided to try it while waiting on tea cooking. If it didn’t have the original series as the hook, I would have given up after 10 mins. It has none of the immediate grip you got with the original, and the characters are not likeable in any way. Matt Smith is wrong, a poor casting, mumbling away while trying to appear psychopathic. Paddy Considine fits the role well. The rest are just … wooden. Does not justify the high scoring reviews. It tries to shock its way to high scores and fails.
  10. WITHIN ONE MINUTE of me posting this, he loses his wicket to a ball he has been handling so well before. FFS...
  11. Crawley doing far better than I gave him credit for in my mind. Solid, holding his end, and earning the luck he has had.
  12. I tend to agree. He is very good, but once the better bowlers work out how to counter his ultra-aggressive play then his temperament does not seem capable of slowing down to normal test batting of picking off bad balls.
  13. The last series of the first one was just so bad that I can’t drag up the enthusiasm to watch it. If the same script writers were involved, I’ll put it down as “maybe, sometime”
  14. Good start by England, getting to 5 before their first wicket loss.
  15. The bowlers in the last test got a decent take from the pitch and quality of batsmen, was not their fault in any way.
  16. Episode 11 is outstanding telly. Two ways to watch it: 1. pure entertainment. And it’s great telly. 2. an alternative lens on many bits of modern history. And it’s great telly.
  17. This is awful for the ground itself who'll be out of pocket on the tickets from the weekend, along with all the hospitality money. "Bazball" might be entertaining, and good for flat-track bully games, but it's shocking as a sustainable way to play test cricket.
  18. Nice for Anderson to walk off onto the next wicket along to give SA the last wicket.
  19. 60 partnership from Broad and Stokes, and they'll be in the dressing room saying "we need more of that!" when they were actually damnably lucky, and not in an "I earned that fortune" lucky way
  20. This is a fairly devastating exposure of England, mainly because I can see that SA are clearly misfiring in some areas. SA taking all their chances would have finished this by now.
  21. That's the 2nd wicket that that umpire has got wrong that I thought "that's stone cold out" on first glance. He's not having a great game there.
