The cases were in that key sense dissimilar. The fact that both were close calls does not change that.

    If you want to criticise Doctrove, there is some amount of legit reason to - you could claim that there's no way he could've been sure Strauss caught that and thus made an error of sight, same as one of failing to give an obvious glove down leg out. But there was not any inconsistency, I don't know how many times this has to be said.

All of which means not even close to all posts on the matter are read, and the ones that make important points (like, well, yes, mine) are easily missed.

    Hence, I feel a separate thread is appropos, and would've been distinctly displeased at any mod who elected to close this.

    I meant to pick up on this a while back. Is there an outside chance that you were party to such behaviour?

    So much so that one wonders why you even bother posting about it.

    Nah, from memory I think I just sat there when he went to his ton, clapped politely. Booed him when he came out to field though IIRC, though that we near the end of the day and I was pretty drunk, so can't be sure
