    Which CW chestnut gets your goat?

    There are a few perenially debated topics on CW, a few of which are currently getting a work out again in a few threads. Thought it would be interesting to see which one is the topic that most gets people irritated, and from what angle they're approaching that topic.

    See the above poll, vote, and discuss.

    I've probably parodied some views there, trying to explain them succinctly enough to fit into a poll listing. Feel free to reiterpret them into more reasonable explanations if that helps people find an option they are happy to vote for.

    Tough to go past Murali vs Warne. I could go for either tbh, one is a better wicket taker and the other a smarter cricketer. Not much between the two but I tend to go for Murali as Warne fans are slightly more annoying.

    Tried to avoid mentioning any individual poster's unusual views specifically in the poll, for obvious reasons, and focus on topics where there were genuinely two schools of thought.

    But that's not to say you can't nominate what you like.

    Maybe some kind mod can edit the poll to include:
    Hayden - one of the greatest openers ever
    Hayden - flat track bully

    The:

    Stats: the most important thing when judging a player
    Stats: not as important as reputation or historical legacy


    argument is one that shows no signs of abating as well.

    Yeah, this would be my vote if it was up there.
    Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    PEWS, can you please add the stats vs reputation and Hayden questions to the poll - both should be there, I just didn't think of them when doing the poll.

    For whatever reason, myself and the mods who were given powers at the same time as me can't edit polls. The group before me can though, so I'm sure someone will notice your request.

    I hope this doesn't turn into an anti-Richard thread. I would hate some thing like that happening. Hope the thread remains on the relevent topic.

    Was not the intention of the thread. Rich obviously champions a couple of the positions described in the poll, but I did not include things like the First Chance Average or "Hayden vs Hussein" etc, for precisely that reason. All of the ones that were included do have several people who'll argue each position.
