    Darrell Hair

    Let us now remember that great day when Darryl Hair had the guts to stand up to the ICCD (International Cricket Council of Di**heads) and no-ball Murali for throwing it. No umpire has had the balls to do it since and I feel that Darryl Hair deserves to be knighted for his services to Cricket. He was the umpire with enough courage to no-ball Murali. It seems very much like Arpartied in that as soon as you show one sign of being different the people in charge pounce on you. Ie. In the movie "Cry Freedom", a movie based in Arpatied South Africa the journalist Donald Woods began supporting the Black movement. His career was ruined and he was forced to leave the country.

    Darryl Hair had the courage to do what he believed was right. He was sacked from international cricket and now struggles to umpire a game in Australia. Why? Because he did what was right and no balled a chucker. Let us hope that there are more umpires like Darryl Hair that no-ball Murali and other chuckers around the world.

    While I have some understanding for Hair's position, comparing a cricket umpire (who, so far as I know, is currently on the International Panel) to a civil rights activist who fled a country upon threat of death has to be the height of tastelessness - and I'm sure that Hair would agree.

    Ross Emerson had the balls to do it in 1999, unfortunately, he just didn't have the marbles to deal with the consequences and it ended his career...

    Well Daryl Hair has a bit more going for him; he is an excellent umpire, controversy aside.

    Actually, he was head of the NSW cricket umpires association until last year, where he resigned because of his move to England - for lifestyle purposes. He hasn't been ran out of the country, as you seem to suggest.

    The reason he struggles to umpire a game in Australia is for the simple reason of neutral umpires. He is also on the international panel, officiating in a number of the England - West Indies Test matches this winter from memory and I'm sure he would have controlled more internationals since then.

    You've gone more than a little over the top - I dare say you're just trying to stir up the pot here, because some of the suggestions are absurd. Cricket is only a game, remember.

    Absolutely - I dare say Hair, Rudi and Taufel are the best umpires in the world by a fairly comfortable margin at this point in time.

    Oh, and as for why people haven't been called for chucking - there are now processes in place in which umpires report the actions to the match referees to avoid the calling mid-match.

    You're right about Rudi Koertzen. He's come a long way from a few years ago when everyone was calling for his head. Just goes to show that umpires form is as cyclic as players.

    I agree that Taufell is the best.

    Ross Emerson was a cheat! He was the one who no-balled Murali's leg spinner's. Anyone with a little cricket knowledge knows that the leg spin comes from the back of the hand and cannot be thrown, but he unashamedly called them, proving that his calls were pre-meditated. Thats is cheating pure and simple! Imagine deciding to give someone lbw before the ball is bowled. Good riddance!

    As for Hair, he was an awful biased umpire! He always gave the benefit of the doubt to Australia, not to the batsman.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    yes, but murali is different....he cannot straighten his arm, even when bowlig a leggy,so it still appears he's chucking

    I thought Darryl Hair was one of the best umpires around. Probably still is with all the crappy decisions getting handed out.

    He should have never got hassled about no-balling Murali. He was just doing his job.
