    Battle of the CC Posters II

    So I think we did this about three years ago...we all know Smitteh is the undisputed King of CW, but if we did a BOTM based on cricket posts alone, who would win? Well now is your time to find out...I am willing to run a battle, I reckon 64 posters might be enough, but it's up for discussion.

    Ideas/suggestions on this?

    RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.

    I'm assuming SJS is to be excluded in much the same manner as Bradman?

    And Sanz in the same manner as Chris Martin.

    Sounds good, expecting an SJS whitewash though.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    As an aside, how do nominated members feel about posting who their favourite cricketer is? Just as a little aside to go in the poster details when the battles go up.

    For EWS & Uppercut I think I'm right in saying Sinclair & Pollock, could be wrong though

    Yeah didn't include Richard as IIRC I read a post of his in the BOTM thread saying he doesn't like to partake in battles.

    Only since he started getting knocked out first round, tbh.

    Jono's the reigning champ, IIRC?

    Be interesting to see how the new blood does; Uppercut's already been mentioned, but Messers fertang and zaremba should go ok in this too.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Brumby and SJS assuming that the above is an offical nomination for Zaremba.
