    Agree with first bolded, but with the second bolded, country doesn't matter for me, team v team is just usually better than individual v individual, be it Essendon, NSW or Aus
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    When you're in a hurry and trying (and failing) to hurry in a dignified fashion?

    When you're that person who always has to walk at the front of a group and when someone walks faster than you to wind you up, you need to retake your place as the weird person who must always walk in front?

    Apt.

    Walking: the sport for the socially maladjusted weirdo.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "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

    Hey look, when the IAAF brings in a 50k moonwalk or institues a minimum blood-alcohol level for the competitors, we'll talk.

    Actually lots of sports would be improved if the competitors were pissed. Certainly make gymnastics more watchable.

    Olympics nowhere near as shot as Ireland.

    Can say that, having been to both.

    Preaching to the converted tbh, I don't live there anymore.

    But yeah, not feeling remotely affiliated to any competing nation might take some of the edge off. It's tougher to enjoy sports, especially the simpler ones, when you can't suspend disbelief and convince yourself that the result matters.

    Poor re-hash of an Eddie Izzard routine that.

    It's all about the athletics to me. & even then the walking can **** off. I mean, seriously? Is there any time in the sphere of human experience where it's more effective to walk quickly than run? A fact appreciated by the competitors who break into a trot when they think no-one's watching, which one can understand because, let's be frank, no-one is. Unless your idea of sporting excellence is a hundred or so skinny feckers waggling their arses like they've got love beads shoved up there.


    ****ing ridiculous sport

    Equestrian events **** me to tears as well

    Over they years, there have been many attempts to replace them with something more relevant like skateboarding but it is rejected every time because it supposedly represents the spirit of the Olympics

    FMD, if that Greek bloke who ran 26.2 miles to get to Athens or wherever was on a horse walking sideways, his mates would've been ****ed

    Ha, the Equestrian events are ok for 5 minutes then they are just totally boring. I like the hockey, swimming, cycling and rowing for some reason. Always watch them and don't watch anything of those sports for 4 years. Tennis can naff off, badminton is good though, shame Gail Emms retired, she had a cracking body.
