I wouldn't mind such a fan saying he likes x,y, z attractive. However, to discount a batsman like Dravid without understanding facets is uncalled for.

    we weren't talking about Dravid only. we were talking about both Dravid and Kallis.
    why did u agree that kallis is boring batsman but not Dravid? i tell u why becuase u r indian and ur bias. u can't present one reason or evidance to change my opinion about Dravid's bating becuase most of ur opinions are based on favoritism and preconception.

    As I said before, it's purely opinion. I know for a fact that 90% of the members (active) on this forum, will appreciate Dravid being a class player, who is interesting to watch. However, there will still be people who have a different opinion to you, and we need to accept that.

    Where did I say Kallis is some one whom I find boring (or not)? Read properly before posting next time, particularly if you want to attack me like you did further on in the post.

    well i am telling the truth there. if u see there. i was talking about both kallies and dravid. it seams to me that he doesn't mind me calling kallies boring but minds when i call dravid boring. the fact is that they both of have similar style of bating. he is saying he has no respect for my opinion what so ever becuase i have called dravid boring while he never includes kallies in his posts.

    I don't care about that. You had to bring the issue of nationalistic bias in, which blatently has nothing to do with the subject at hand. A lack of maturity on the issue.

    no u haven't agree but the question is why did u take out kallie's name when we were talking about both kallis and dravid. u seam to mind when i call dravid boring but not when i call kallies boring.

    I don't mind any thing. You can believe the sun is square shaped or whatever. I don't care regarding your opinion.

    Opinion has to be based on reasoning to be not just an instinct. Given how Dravid's batting can be appreciated and enjoyed at so many different levels, it would take some strong reasoning from some one for me to say it is logical enough for me to respect his views on the same.

    1) "Bopara, Essex Lad, Street Fighter as well..."

    2) Saj Mahmood (Or when players we all know are inept are persevered with if they shine the coaches shoes or whatever Mahmood did)

    3) Sledging, or any form of verbal abuse

    4) The absolutely pointless "Mental Disintigration" that takes place before any game these days.. "I won't be having a beer with Pietersen - No, nor will I, you ****..

    5) Sporting Cliche's and the fact that players are gagged from pretty much voicing any kind of view that might be interesting.. I'm fed up of reading "Yeah, we're going to target their batsman.. Our bowlers will be looking to take wickets.. "The guys are a bit disappointed" or "We're in it to win".. Oh for a personality in the game, someone who actually says something that leaves me thinking, "oh really?" ....

    6) The ICC, their sterlization of the game, handling of pretty much everything, from Zimbabwe to bottles of Cola...

    So yeah, pretty much all my gripes are off field issues...
