    had to google that

    hey on the automatic checking of run outs, they do that mainly because it takes their fat arses that long to run in from square leg anyway

People don't repeat the howler thing just as a cliche, it's because it's the most realistic target for people who actually want to eliminate awful mistakes while getting on with the damn game. You can't have it both ways, there compromises to be made, and I think they've got it right with two reviews absolute max in an innings.
    Nah I am sick of this howler ****. I am happy for there to be a review system and in the hands of the players, but then dont' ****ing tell them how to use it and what they can and cannot review.

    If I am Ross Taylor and I am surrounded by ********s who can't bat, and I am hit in front of middle and given out LBW, I'm going to call for the review just because I can, and there may be a small chance that it was going down leg. I don't need people telling me that its not a howler and that I should not use it. I am happy for players to use it strategically. These people that say "Oh the UDRS wasn't meant for this" - nah piss off. It was meant to get decisions right. There is already an inherent punishment by reviewing a "non-howler" - you lose the review.

    People have to stop talking about "Oh this wasn't the purpose of the review". If I am hit plumb in front on a hat trick ball from Peter Siddle, I will review. Cos I don't want to be that bloke who was the hat trick wicket, like girly Broad was. If I lose the review, that is my punishment. My team suffers and my captain can yell at me.

    This "he should not be able to review that" is stupid. Its like telling a player he should not be able to declare poorly. If you make a poor decision by trying to use the system strategically you are already punished.

    Who is moaning though? uvelocity? Surely he doesn't count.

    edit: also fixed my incorrect spelling of 'there', embarrassing to say the least. uvelocity-esque one might say.

    All of it. Well, apart from the 'human error' bit, that bit is true.

    eh? you're a smart guy. if there was no upstairs to go to, it would have stayed not out. and there was no upstairs in 1984.

    What the **** is this logic, seriously? He gave it out because he didn't see the inside edge. That has nothing to do with technology or otherwise, especially since the technology was completely irrelevant in this situation

    It cuts ****ty umpiring decisions?

    The only time when we see UDRS failing is when captains use it incorrectly. How many incorrect decisions has UDRS got wrong?
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
