    Sent James a few questions of mine to start off with
    >>>>>>WHHOOOOOOOOOSHHHHHHH>>>>>>
    Fascist Dictator of the Heath Davis Appreciation Society
    Supporting Petone's Finest since the very start - Iain O'Brien
    Adam Wheater - Another batsman off the Essex production line
    Also Supporting the All Time #1 Batsman of All Time Ever - Jacques Kallis and the much maligned Peter Siddle.

    Yeah, I don't really disagree with this. I think the questions that were asked originally for the introduction were perfect for an introduction-type article, but he's obviously going to go a little deeper in his blogs so some probing questions could be worthwhile from here on. He's writing it himself so he only has to answer what he thinks he could give an interesting response to, afterall.

    I'm perhaps a little too biased to actually ask him anything more difficult than "How did you get so awesome?" but that's why even his 'critics' so to speak can be valuable even to just to fuel his own inspiration.

    Indeed. As an opening salvo, the first article is decent - not that Sinclair really needs much of an introduction. However, Sinclair is a pretty controversial character and there's plenty of unanswered questions.

    And I've only upset an interviewee once...

    Just to let you know that I've received your email. A few are a bit heavy, but most are fine I'd say. I'll email them through to him in the coming days.

    If you weren't such a gun I'd be furious, smother you with a pillow supplied by Jeets and then away.

    Don't think I've ever said gun in real life ITBT, just a CWism.

    That, of course, is why I left the esteemed James Nixon esquire with the final editorial say. Would have been a bit remiss of me to post them as a response to his article.

    "Hey, Skippy! Why are you such a..." etc.


    NB. For the avoidance of doubt, the three dots in the quotations above represent "good player", abridged for elegant truncation.

    Haha, cheers mate.

    That's why comments don't appear on his articles until one of CW Management team approve it Not to say we won't approve tough comments, but it just helps filter out any hate type posting anyone decides to do.

    Great to see the comments going up in his blog btw everyone.

    Hmmm... Just re-read the article and I think my question (number 10?) is pretty much a duplicate of one you've already asked. So can that one!
