OK, I want page 3 bannned, hated the MCC for banning women and admire Hantuchova for the fact she is far more intelligent than your average Aussie (yes she's gorgeous as well but I bet I ain't the only one here that likes a nice-looking girl) and have never looked at porn - if you think they are the actions of a sexist person you're entitled to your opinion. If you Aussies want to watch Stephanie-whatever-her-name is good luck to you - but Sky don't employ a woman and I'm sure they would if the viewers in Britain wanted it. PS - I slagged off Greig and Lawry too but no one attacked me for that. Poor Tony and Bill - to think more people defend whatshername than them. PPS - Let's agree to difer shall we? The Aussies want a token female, the Brits don't. Let's leave it at that.

    Really? Your idiots seem to be a bit more celebrated in that many of them become celebrities over there, especially in the music field. Have you been to Australia? You won't sell the "We have idiots here, but at least they get their facts right" argument to too many people who have actually visited your country. From what I have seen an idiot is an idiot no matter where they come from.

    In a world cricketing commentary first, Channel Nine are going to have three commentators on air (instead of the normal two) each 30 minute stint. I wondered how Nicholas, Benaud, Lawry, Greig, Healy, Chappell, Slater, Taylor, Healy and Tufnell were all going to fit. Well, it seems this is how.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Well I'm not really surprised because I thought Nine were overstaffed - a remark about Ashes commentators that DIDN'T get me into trouble! I'd love to know how they will all get a word in edgeways - since Sky has its own commentators us Brits won't find out - could Aussie members tell us once the action starts if it works or is it a case of too many cooks? The interesting point is quite often Nine leads and other networks follow - so maybe Sky will have three commentators together next summer? At least that will get RGD Willis back into Test commentary which is a good thing IMO...
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...

    Cracking thread.

    Now I'm not PC, in fact my missus would probably tell you I'm quite the sexist, but I don't see the problem with a woman commentating? It doesn't bother me at all.Imagine if Sky had never employed Georgie Thompson. My life would have followed a completely different, purer path. Anyway I digress. It matters not whether they have a ****** or not, but in fact how well they talk a game of Cricket.

    No point me saying much more because for once I actually agree with the Aussie clan in this thread, on the most part. I'm all for taking the vote back off them, but let them commentate.

    Gordon McQueen’s daughter does nights occasionally and she is a ****ing stunning piece of work. By far the best girl on SSN. Quite partial to Georgie though, her voice is rather masculine but maybe because I’m a perv but she does seem extremely sleazy, its like I’m watching channel 906 or something.

    So how did the three tv commentators work?

    I watched but listened to the ABC. Is it my imagination or is the sync betweed the radio voices and the tv pictures out of wack even more this year?
    You know it makes sense.
