    Heat of the moment, sure. But publicly, at least, I don't remember the WI even suggesting as much.

    Happy to be contradicted, especially since it would only add to the idea that they were successful douchebags.

    But yeah, the image of the WI players of years gone by being paragons of fair play and using this to criticise the Aussies of the 00's is bull****, no kidding. I have absolutely no problem with the way either team played, they played hard and won a lot but it's bollocks to go after one but not the other.
    Agree with the stuff you say about the WI. Remember reading about a match where Bishan Singh Bedi declared the innings closed because of intimidatory bowling. They were no paragons of virtue but there is always something about the Windies that makes them likeable.

    Haha, Colin Croft is awesome. Can't imagine what would have happened to poor umpires like Bucknor(at least in his last years as an umpire) if they officiated WI matches at that time.

    Rob, I have a real tough assignment for you!

    Can you compile all the grumpy/uncalled for comments from Ian Chappel in last few years?

    This would be real challenge but seeing what you have already put out there, you should be able to get in with all the collection that you have Should make one heck of a clip!

    Less press presence around them at the time helped I think. Imagine if the press was reporting Viv's nocturnal activities in the same way as they did Warne's.

    Was Viv quite famous for his nocturnal activities? I only know of his affair with Nina Gupta.

    Imran Khan was quite often reported in the press. Possible more so than Warne I would presume.
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Tough ask, but a good ask.

    btw what happened to Patrick Patterson. I remember he used to be one of the fastest bowlers in the world at one time. According to Bagapath he was last seen selling crack at a beach in the Caribbean?

    Does anybody know why his career ended so soon. Seemed like a decent bowler.
