    Seems as signatures have now entered this, I'd like to make the following offer:

    If Aus win by two or more Tests, I'll have as much of their national anthem in my sig as will fit. If we retain the Ashes though, I'd love for an Aussie to have Jersualem in their signature. Any takers?

    The challenge can be to have the said signature for a month?

    If Australia lose this upcoming Ashes series, I will change my avatar to the first English-cricket related thing suggested, and my sig will read, in big, bold letters, 'England are officially better than Australia, and we're all a bunch of convicts.'

    I do, however, wish to add that if, at any stage during live matches of the series, either McGrath or Warne get injured or are not playing, I am able to, at my discretion, withdraw this bet. That's the only condition.
    As McGrath and Warne look set to play, I'm more than happy to disregard the last part.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    If England win the Ashes again, I'll change my avatar to a picture of any England player of any of your choice who participated in the series, and attach "Flintoff is the greatest all-rounder the world has ever known and ever will know."

    Both of the above to stay for a month.

    Nah, Jerusalem is specific to England, whereas God Save the Queen is technically the national anthem of the UK

    If Shane Warne doesn't drop KP and he doesn't go onto score a hundred, then i will have Shane Warne on my avatar.

    If KP doesn't finish leading run scorer, i will put Shane Warne on my avatar.

    Yeah, but how many Australians know that?

    I'll take it, on the condition that I can select a song other than our ****house national anthem for you to use, if and when the time comes.

    It'd better not be that Working Class Man song. Gah.

    Haha, Barnsey's gun.

    Probably should just stick with the National Anthem tbh. Waltzing Matilda's actually a decent song with some meaning, which makes it far too good to waste as a national anthem, and it'll probably be extra-embarassing having phrases like "our land is girt by sea" in your sig.

    Maybe another song by a great Aussie band - "Hey there Georgie girl" by the Seekers perhaps?
