    What does "Pigeon Toed" mean?

    I keep hearing this from the British Radio commentary feed.. They only use it to describe Graham Onions or Glenn mcGrath.. I have never heard of it anywhere else and they never seem to hint at what they might be talking about.. Can anyone shed any light on it, and why do they only use it during the Ashes? Does it mean thin legs, or that they have the bowling ability of a pigeon? I thought that would only apply to Chris Schofield..

    Tony Greig memorably labelled a "pigeon toed peabrain" as well.

    Glenn McGrath is not called "pigeon toed" which means feet pointing inward but simply "pigeon" because he has skinny legs like a Pigeon. If the British commentary team refer to McGrath as pigeon toed then they are mistaken.

    Yep CMJ repeated it time and time again. He's got a fondness for describing the way bowlers run up. Anderson is always "spring heeled". Merv's run-up was always "mincing".

    CMJ is developing into an annoying commentator actually.. Don't rate him as highly as the other radio guys.. I reckon they should give Hayden a full on gig, I think the guy is probably the best of the recent Player turned Commentators

    Developing? He's been around forever. Not as good as Aggers by any stretch, but still does a good job for mine.
