This is a classic case of 'shooting the messenger and not listening to the message itself'.
    You're missing the point I was trying to make, which is: as soon as one advises another to "get some perspective", they're a hypocrite because absolutely everyone is guilty of getting upset over something relatively petty, on a regular basis.

    It's the old "practice what you preach" cautionary tale.

    Well realistically that would happen I was trying to have a perfect world sort of thing happening since Sri Lanka are the most recent Asian World Cup winners.

    (See we can have a proper discussion over this)

    I think there's a fair few Antipodeans on here who might have a slightly different idea of what constitutes a perfect world

    I know, I know I wish it was here to but it's not just there is no need to cry over it and it is in Asia so I think discussion should be aimed towards that and ow the format should work.

    As far as format goes, I'm fine with the Two groups > Super 6 > Semis > Final. If every team is full strength - I'm looking at you, Zimbabwe - and every team plays every allotted game, I think it works fine.

    I disagree.
    It is still the 'shoot the messenger and sling mud on the messenger' syndrome if you feel thats hypocritical.
    Regardless of whether i am petty about something or another, it doesnt negate the idea that you are petty on this matter.

    As i said, you dont need to be a perfect being to say someone's perspective on a certain matter is faulty.

    I think this Zimbabwe side is about as full strength as it is going to get at this stage IMO.

    The format changed - 4 Groups > Super 8s > SF > F

    What makes my point of view petty? I absolutely adore cricket, have done since I was five, and I would love to have a World Cup on my doorstep. Excuse me, but the fact that some expats in the US can't attend any International games isn't my concern, and doesn't neutralise my right to be disappointed by events, nor my right to express that.

    Either way, I'm not going to get into another flame war with you. Back to the topic.

    I know that, I was pointing out my preference. The format you mentioned is being used for the upcoming event, but I wasn't aware whether or not the Asians had expressed a preference?

    Really? Are you sure? Do you have a link to any articles? Not saying I don't believe you, I'm just a bit surprised.

    I dont wish to debate whether your point of view is petty or not ( i think it is but as you 'wisely' said, lets not get into a flame war). I am commenting on the idea that the comment 'get some perspective' is a hypocritical argument- which it doesnt have to be by default as you seem to be implying.
