    I hate the fact that we have to wait two and a half years after the Australian Ashes for another series.

    How extreme all the opinions on cricket become. It says something when I visit this site for some sanity on the subject.

    The fact that the public don't give a **** about the rest of Australia's tests but over-react when the Ashes are on. Don't get me wrong, it's the most famous test rivarly out, but we don't need to over-react to it.
    5-0

    I stand on the side of any publicity is good publicity, and an Ashes series at home always results in grassroots interest increasing.

    What annoys me is the when people who don't watch cricket (Prince EWS etc) all of a sudden become experts on cricket when the Ashes come around.

    At least cricket fans only have to deal with that every 2-2.5 years.

    Imagine how horse racing fans feel when everyone thinks they're an expert come spring racing season every year.

    I couldn't give a **** about racing tbh, but if I was a fan and heard random dicks (who never get a chance to wear a suit in their life so get excited come October when they can spill goon all over their tie) talk about how So You Think is a lock etc.

    Yeah, or when Richmond fans talk about what it feels like to play finals.
