Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
yeah that shut you mother****ers up.
look bud, if you're unhappy that your boy hasn't got a bulletproof spot in the team anymore, take out harris and pattinson again
Taking out Siddle would be like taking out Jeff Winger from the Community study group, the leader of the pack stays on, bud.
Siddle ain't no leader of the pack now that the leader of the pack, ryan harris, is back
In fairness he bowled pretty well.
Oh and not picking Siddle is stupid. Luckily the selectors won't fall for the same **** some fans do. Jesus.

I don't have a massive problem with Harris, Pattinson, Siddle, it's just that I believe Harris, Pattinson, Bird is a bit more dangerous. Not massively so, but we ain't in a position to be giving any freebies and Bird for me offers a bit more than Sidds. Whichever way you slice it Siddle is the first change bowler, he isn't the spearhead. Solid, dependable, runs in all day yadda yadda, but not to my mind as likely to trouble England's best batsmen quite as much as Bird will.
I'm not anywhere near as concerned about Siddle v Bird debates as I am about the selectors still hanging onto the idea a left armer is needed when he isn't one of the best four quicks we have available.
