    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    One for GIMH - John Barnes, for the rapping not the playing.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    2nd John Barnes (for the rapping)
    2nd Ferenc Puskas
    2nd Andres Escobar (sold on Vimes' reasoning)

    Nominate (last nomination): Gazza - who can forget those tears in 1990.

    Would nominate a couple of West Germans from that era, but I'm out of luck now.
