    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    how exactly would you define arrogance as, if not a perception of someone's behaviour ?

    The post I quoted highlights exactly why people have their opinion of you - out of just about every person who didn't really think WI had a chance, you've picked out 1.

    murali and ponting were the most vocal about it but ponting was the most dismissive of it. to me, he comes across as arrogant, no the queit confidence of tugga.

    Your a true diickhead C_C, arrogance is when you exaggerate your own importance and you have yet to show an example of Ponting being arrogant.

    If Ponting were to say that the team would not be as good without him or something similar then you could call him arrogant. But all you can come up with is you percieve him to be arrogant even though you dont even know what it means.

    And I bet a brick to London you cant give an example of Ponting being condescending.

    So get a dictionary and learn what you call people BEFORE you open your big mouth.

    not explicitly.
    One can imply implicit importance by rubbishing another's chances like Pontind did for the WI.
    its arrogant if you are a member of Man.United and you say 'blackburn wont win squat'.

    But all you can come up with is you percieve him to be arrogant even though you dont even know what it means.
    before you tell me whether i know the meaning of a certain word or not, i would like you to know that i tutor kids in highschool and 1st year english.

    and whether one is arrogant or not is based on your perception of that person,unless he/she openly says 'i am arrogant'.

    And I bet a brick to London you cant give an example of Ponting being condescending.
    i already did.

    Poor kids.

    But I must say you are very arrogant when it comes to discussing cricket, plus you have a condescending atttude towards other posters.

    After reading some of the posts on ICF I can see why you are so arrogant, it seems to be the same with most posters on there.

    No you didnt, just because Ponting thought England would win does not make him arrogant, and if it does then every person alive including the Dali Lama is also arrogant.
