I think they key is what you said - he backs up his arguments and argues his case, he doesn't just make outlandish statements and end them with . There's a fine line between what he does and trolling but I don't think he crosses it.
    I really would like to know if he rates any New Zealand cricketer tbh, in any form of the game.

    Hang on - you can't expect them to open the odds for that game when the Sri Lanka v ZImbo game is still to be played. Injuries and form have a massive influence on the odds.

    Seriously, your posts on punting often make no sense whatsoever.

    Yeah Hurricane, that's a big jump from betting $5 to $200 a go.

    On the betting site I use, SL are paying $1.12 vs. Zim, so unless Zim get very close to SL, I think the NZ odds will be about the same.

    Have any Kiwi's gone to Durham as an overseas player?

    Edit: Yep, Styris and Astle. So that's potentially 2 players he rates highly, just depends how well they went for Durham.

    ^ Surely he rates the top-notch players like Hadlee, Turner, Crowe, Cairns, Bond etc as well

    He actually said some nice things about Jimmy Franklin a few years back, before his injury and subsequent conversion into a bits and pieces allrounder.

    And at first you were responding to them in a helpful manner but that has changed - your previous post included swear words. I assumed you were joking around and meant it light heartedly so I didn't say anything now I am not so sure based on this response.

    Take it easy. They are just comments about the TAB and making bets. Peace. I am just a punter who wants everything from the customer's perspective. You are presenting the TAB's view. I don't think there needs to be any friction.

    Look forward to posting with you in the future.

    When you make a post like this:

    I wonder if the TAB has a different bookie for each sport to set the odds or if it is like one guy who just watches the crowd goes wild every day and reads the dom post.
    I quite simply cannot take you seriously, and don't see much point in discussing anything with you at all.

    Goodbye.

    Wiseman was a squad player before he retired.

    Taylor is one of Durham's foreign T20 signings along with Albie Morkel for this season.

    As far as Taylor goes I only rate him as a T20 player or in ODI as a guy who bats in the lower middle order, he's a fairly limited player but is good at what he does. Obviously he's also a form player and hasn't had any form for the past month or so.

    It was a joke. Should have put a smilie face there. But I thought it was over the top enough that it didn't need a smilie face.

    Your post above is pretty unfriendly wishing me goodbye and not wanting to discuss anything at all with me. So I agree with you at this juncture it is best if we parted ways. Please don't respond to my posts in the future be they complaints/compliments about the TAB or cricket related. I will try to avoid your posts as well to make it even. Sorry that my joke contributed to this state of affairs.

    Cheers

    Hurricane

    I'm sure you've been through this before, but humour me for now. What makes Taylor a fairly limited player?

    He's quite clearly shown to be a more than capable (and remember, he's only 26 so should only get better) test number 4, unless 25 tests isn't a big enough sample for you (and hundreds against England x 2, India x 2 and Australia).

    I'm interested to know how you'd rate Taylor alongside someone like Paul Collingwood, someone i'd call a limited player.
