This thread is harsh on EVERYONE because it glorifies the mundane, holds the inept in the highest esteem and worships de Groot.
I admit that the occasional 'breadcrumb moment' does lavish occasional grudging praise on the particularly unworthy - Tendulkar, Lee, Vaas and so on, but for the most part we steer clear of that dodgy ground and stick to what we know best - and that is rubbish.
Just take solace in the fact that he didn't make the 'team of the tournament'.
<LE> I used the term 'Rubbish' sparingly in the ball-by-ball commentary yesterday. Just once - and that was reserved for Brad's stock ball - aka the 'long hop'.
I'm sorry for that interruption - what was the statement again?
Ah yes - Bit harsh on Hogg.
Using the same sort of negative psychology which applies in this thread, you are accusing me of being KIND to Hogg. OK point taken. I'll make up for it later.
