    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    I think men look like tools in crotchless underwear. Pun unintended.

    On a serious note, thats precisely my point. Why keep the underwear locked away? Whats the rationale for that? Does it hurt you to admit to its existence? Fair enough I'd accept the crotchless solution (so to speak) if it was proven to me that regular underwear doesn't exist or it is not feasible to implement it. Maybe its just my stubbornness, but I'm not going to take it as axiomatic that regular underwear is not an option, without good reason.

    What at G.I.Joke!

    Surely the UDRS hasn't improved since it was first introduced?

    Never.

    I like the UDRS the way it is and it should be used in every series.

    No one is asking you to imagine it. If it really bothers you that much then you should stick to watching the series where UDRS is being used.

    There were plenty of umpiring errors made in the Ashes. The reason there's been no song and dance about them is because there was a system in place to rectify those errors.
    Yeah, you must have watched a different Ashes then, The one I watched had the Aussie Captain did a lot of song and dance.

    For the home series, not sure, but I think the ECB were unhappy about the way a few things worked in the South Africa series and so wanted them ironing out before employing it in a home test.

    It kind of feels like you've seen the point and then deliberately went the other way here. Ponting acted like a tool, but that's nothing unusual. Check the fallout when there were bad decisions made from the previous Ashes series, on CW, the media and from the players. That isolated Ponting incident aside, which is more related to him being a tool than an issue with the system, there was pretty much nothing from either side because there was a system in place to reverse bad decisions.
