    Just face it - your side has it's flaws and they were on full display yesterday. Your side isn't necessarily the better one, so you haven't been "screwed beyond all logic" - it came down to side composition and tactics. C'est la vie.

    Bunkum. My top 7 got 3 first ballers (2 to an average medium pacer, which is probably the bowling you'd want to face first up) and Packer was out second ball (again to the average medium pacer). That's just BT bollocks that you can't legislate for, that sort of nonsense shouldn't happen. Flat pitches shouldn't mean a spinner takes out 3 batsmen in his first two overs either. If a slight difference in primary made the difference why didn't Summers take some wickets?

    It was a joke of a result that defied all logic. Which means I was screwed beyond all logic.

    Congrats to Nibbs, and commiserations to Scaly.

    I've just FedEx'ed the cup over, all nice and shiny for you. Don't go staining it with too much port, though -- I'll want it back next season

    Nice to see it all tabulated, even though I was clearly robbed this time round
