    No.

    You goon.
    If you're not drinking alcohol it's pretty easy to spread your toilet breaks to 2 hours, 1 even (with drink breaks). 40 minutes is more than enough time to order a pizza and go to the door to have it delivered. With the invention of the cordless phone you can even order your pizza while watching the cricket to ensure that the pizza is delivered right during the lunch break. Even if you're not ordering pizza 40 minutes is more than enough time to make a sandwich or pop down to the little shopping centre around the corner to grab a Chicken and Mushroom Pie or fish and chips. It is not impossible to watch every ball of a series.

    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 *********!

    I never once said it was impossible - I said it'd take a concentrated effort, and one hell of a strong mind during the more boring passages of play. And, of course, the compliance of the TV companies - more than once I've seen the odd delivery missed here and there because the producer has ****ed-up the ad-slot.

    Haha. Now you're going to blame not watching on the producer. One of your best Richard, surely.

    What, have you never seen a case where the coverage has cut to the immidiate aftermath of a delivery because an ad has been misjudged?

    If not, can only assume Nine's (and maybe Fox's) producers are one hell of a lot better than C4's and Sky's.

    PS: doesn't your sig need a tweak? Ie copyright Kyle Wright 2007, not 2006?

    I never said it did - just that it only requries it to happen once in a series, and that's it - the chance to watch every ball of a series is gone.

    Fair point tbh. I'm sure I've missed deliveries through hawkeye etc
