    So agree with this. People have been called up to the match referee's cabin for *gasp* shaking their head at the decision.

    As it was superbly put to me by a bowler when I turned down a very close LBW shout the other season (felt it might just have hit the batsman outside the line) in a very tight league fixture: "You're angles' better than mine umpire."



    Maybe one of the of many umpires I've come across might be covered by that. if you want a power trip there are many easier ways to have a power trip than standing for up to 120 overs in a day - to say nothing about actually finding and passing the courses and going through the other training required to reach a good standard of cricket.
    Did you remove his nose from your arsehole after the game or is it still there?

    This really applies to international cricket. I recall Michael Atherton being fined 2000 for raising an eyebrow when half way back to he pavilion having belted one into his pad but that was really because Peter Burge threw his toys because there was nothing in the 'dirt in pocket' allegations.

    Stupid comment - why am I not surprised.

    And if a player politely asks for an explanation they will receive one. A more heated reply reply from a player will still produce a calm reply from me. Anything more and I would suggest they calm down.

    Had one last week when the fielding side went up for a caught behind. The timing of the sound was right but the actual sound wasn't - didn't say 'ball on bat' to me - I suspect the bat brushed the pad - and I saw no deflection. The fielding side were, shall we say, quite animated and vocal. I simply asked them to keep calm and explained my decision to the bowler. They were fine after that..
