    Miller v Kallis

    ..by unpopular demand. That's Keith by the way, not Geoff.

    Oh FFS. I'll settle this early to save 4.5 weeks of irrelevant and irrational dribble.

    The square root of Kallis's pecker is apparently 7/8 of a millimetre longer than Miller's was when flaccid, thereby meaning, according to statsguru, that Kallis is more penetrative.

    Of course, to counter-balance that argument, you have to take into account that Miller's strike rate, according to the statistics, was much better than Kallis' with the ladies, taking out of course his poor tour to England in 48 when he struggled against the swingers, meaning he couldn't really cope with top class opposition.

    This despite several contemporaries rating Miller's efforts in the bedroom as good as any of all time.

    But we discount that, because these stories are hero worship only and really don't reflect the lack of statistical domination on a warm afternoon in the WI in the mid-50s when apparently Keith was struggling to play "on the rise".

    Of course, things are "easier" in the modern era, so we have to take a certain proportion of Kallis' otherwise excellent stats away to reflect this. There's no reason for that, we just do it because it suits our own argument.....

    And of course, there's diversity involved here. Kallis has played in more countries, meaning Miller misses out there, because we can only assume he would have picked up as consistently well at those venues - we can't prove it,because there aren't the stats to back it up.

    Besider, Miller's dead. His returns in later years were terrible - clearly a decline.

    Blah Blah ****ing Blah.

    And on it goes, backwards and forwards for as long as it takes everyone to realise that this argument is really no more than a few posters repeatedly playing with their OWN equipment.

    Doesn't matter how good or bad it was, it'll be like a Shakespearean Sonnet compared to the crap we'll be reading in here in 6 weeks' time when the same **** is repeated post after post by people who just can't accept others don't agree with them, but keep going anyway.

    Reading it is the literary equivalent of having a limb removed without anasthetic.

    Newsflash fellas: they're opinions - they're like arseholes - everyone has one. If someone doesn't agree with yours, even after you've put forward an argument, how about we dont' just keep banging on with it time after time, post after post, eh? We just accept it, and we move on. Almost like, dare it be said, real people in the real world.

    That's three times you've made that point today, and what's more that's despite the fact that no one has even put forward a counter argument..........

    Kallis had the hotter female companion. Besides, I'm not entirely sure which team Miller was batting for, given his publicly stated preference for taking Messerschmitts up his arse.


    Not that theres anything wrong with it.
