    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

    It's a bit of fun. No one ****ing cares in the long run who beats who. What the will remember is the Bradman prank from the first one and the Michael Mason conspiracy in this one (I know you voted Hurricane.) Lighten up, have a pretzel and call Smali a **** when Kallis wins this thing.

    And just so you all know, my number one was Doug Bracewell and Bradman and Sachin were left off. Apart from that the list was serious. Deal with it.
    haha....thanks for the vote of confidence Flem

    Smali, after it's all done can you please PM me the imaginary list of 50 it would've been if my initial proposal about rules was considered? (remember? total points multiplied by total votes)...It's just that I'm interested to see how the list would look like...

    Edit: Or if NUFAN can...

    Yeah it's an excel. I had a simple formula in place for the first 53 people or so, not sure if it's still in complete formula..

    Smali - when will the next 10 be up approx?

    Unless he made the rule specifically to exclude Larwood - how is it dishonest? It's him deciding what the criteria for ranking should be....

    I think we all know it is a bit of fun, in fact if you look back most people who argued against the rule, did so for that very reason.

    Don't really have a problem with the rule just find it amusing when Smali mentions undeserving names that missed out because of it.

    I just like a good yell tbh.

    That and I wanted the thread to get back to guessing who is left out.

    Really doubt he'll be in the top 10 let alone top 5.

    I fought with some cognitive dissonance to put Kallis much higher than I normally do.

    Well it claims to reflect CW opinion then excludes it.

    The complaints last time were because 1 person voted a player top and it got them in the list.

    As Larwood would've got 49 points, that's at least 2 people and more likely 3 voted for him.

    Out of 57 that's a fair old percentage.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
