    Indeed he does, and with the foreshortening effect, I'd say Doctrove's view is better than the replay anyway. It was a huge call to make if he didn't see it properly, would've been easy to just send it upstairs.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I think Andre Botha, who was "caught" at bat-pad off Mohammad Sami in that Ireland-Pakistan ODI, would disagree with you.

    It's a shame there isn't footage of decisions against Gower and Lamb on the 82/83 Ashes Tour - those would blow everything else out of the water.

    Clark's was practically on a par with that tho.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Pretty universally awful. Billy was possibly the worst of the bunch tho; even effed up counting the balls in an over a couple of times.
