    Australia did their best to force a result by playing so many ****ing Marshes.

    Yeah but it still seems to be a farcical penalty..........how the **** could they ever ban the MCG from hosting a test match?? Or any other major iconic ground for that matter. It will just be a rule that potentially could affect the minor grounds but never the big boys.

    Yeah they’ll just stop negatively grading iconic grounds.

    I think rating it as 'poor' is a bit harsh, probably deserved more 'below average'.

    I certainly think it's largely deserved the criticism its gotten; that it offered nothing for seamers at the start or end of the match was its biggest fault amongst many imo. But I really think the 'poor' rating should be only allocated in extreme cases one where it's dangerous to bat on or is abandoned like the Windies/England 1998 Test.

    It's enough of an indictment that no-one is using the excuse of losing 40 odd (??) overs to rain to protest the ruling.

    That's what 'unfit' is for.

    Pretty sure a pitch that's dangerous has its own category when it comes to ratings.

    The rule conveniently starts from Jan 1 2018. MCG is safe.

    I think you missed jedi's point. He wants them to do it AGAIN. That would therefore BE 2018 and the MCG would not be safe except as jedi says, that they would need big balls to ban it.

    Except for me missing your point, that 1 poor rating will not get you banned

    Couple of Australian guys who write this funny thing for the cricket paper said the problem with the MCG is there is no discernible style of wicket: Gabba 'fast'; WACA 'faster again'. Adelaide 'grass English style'. Sydney ''turner''. With the MCG there is just nothing there to pin your coat on.
