    Biased definition: To cause to have often negative opinions formed without sufficient knowledge. A preference or an inclination, especially one that inhibits impartial judgment.

    Did you know what the word biased meant before using it?
    This is becomming patronising.

    Boycott is a realist with high standards. He may be concentrated on England but his opinions are not pro-England. In fact many of his criticisms of England in the 90s have been indirectly adopted to form the basis of the current England system.
    It's really basic. If England lose there's a reason for it, and giving that reason isn't bias. Boycott does that but he also gives off a sense, to me, that England should always be number 1 for his own reasons.

    Fact is that if every cricket team in earth played the perfect game, there'd still be losers and you can't be number one all the time. People like Boycott and Botham act as if England could be number one when everything comes together.

    Are you telling me you haven't heard Boycott go on a rant on why England aren't winning?

I don't mind a little bit of home bias, so long as it doesn't get in the way of commenting on the game in a constructive way, but when everything is about how the home team has been screwed over or the other team is lucky or how it's "sad" that someone from the opposition is playing well or something... it's just irritating.

    I think Mike Haysmen deserves the the CW "aussie" award for cricketing treason - he is so far up the Saffies back sides it's untrue. Even during the the 1st test he was making excuses for South Africa saying how unlucky they where and how lucky the Aussie batsmen where. Also during the 400+ ODI how it would have all been different had Pollock been playing as he "guarntees early wickets and keeps it tight". Conveniently forgetting McGrath hadn't played all series.

    Always liked O'Keefe and Jim Maxwell.

    Certainly Benaud. Best NZ commentators (?), I like Coney and Smith I guess. Ron Snowden. Peter Sharpe. Good thread this.

    Ron Snowden??? He's awful - knows next to nothing about cricket. And don't even get me started on his Trackside work...

    I'd very much like a dream about Nicholas and Shastri being in a commentary box that collapses mid-transmission.

    His voice and the way he looks at the camera reeks of "I have an inflated ego."
