    Also I felt symmo was someone who made the best out of his peak as a cricketer. I always saw him as one in the league of TilDil, hardworking but not excessively gifted, but rose to world reckoning during their peaks. He was always going back to level once it was through, just that the incident was a catalyst.
    Symonds work hard on cricket? And Warne was monogamous.

    Well 3 years after the video was uploaded Fred was winning the Ashes and Bravo was the injured one.

    Of course, in Harbhajan vs. Symmo, this would happen, but it'd be worth it still. And Bhajji would keep his mouth shut next time.
    For a matter of interest, I noticed the referees/umpires (what ever you call them in Hockey) only splitting the fights up once they were on the floor. Are they advised to do that, or is it just there own common sense?

    Yea, the refs will let a fight go until someone has clearly won or if the players are taking too long to start a fight. If they are just standing around without punching, the refs will tell them to start the fight already or they'll intervene. And if someone is on the ground, and/or clearly beat, the refs will also call it.

    Shocked that Pickup's tennis sledge hasn't been given the appreciation it deserves.

    Not really a sledge, but it needs to be posted:

    "Towards the end of George Headley's career he had been living in the midlands and in the summer playing in the Birmingham League. In 1953 the Jamaican people raised over 1,000 to bring him back to Jamaica just so he could play in the series against England. It had been tough for those people to raise the sum of money but they did and believed the sacrifices they had made would be worth it just to see George play against England. So you can imagine what they thought of me, when in the first game playing against the Jamaican Parishes, I broke his arm." - Fred Trueman
