The Spin | Rejoicing in the Twirlymen and the forgotten art of medium-paced spin | Andy Bull | Sport | guardian.co.uk
andy bull's spin from the guardian deals with fast spin and barnes. interesting comments below the line, too.
(apologies in advance for the atrocious word play and an obscure and irrelevant connection, but i just cannot help myself sometimes! something alcoholic would certainly help clear the cobwebs)
