    People will claim that is the only inappropriate result in the whole list because of strategic voting, and Bradman is the only cricketer in the whole list (and outside) to be affected by strategic voting. They'll also claim that if you just inter-change Bradman and Sobers in the list, it'll be a 100% accurate representation of what CW thinks
    I will look for a scape goat. Mainly posters who only follow IPL matches.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Yes because Sobers rocked in IPL

    It will discredit the entire list, IMO. Not because I think Bradman must be ahead of Sobers in any valid ranking of cricketers (in fact I'm probably the last person to push that barrow), but because I don't believe for a second that the collective CricketWeb opinion is such. If it happens it'll merely show that the amount of people who didn't take it completely seriously was large enough to significantly skew the results. And I say this as someone who did take it completely seriously and did not have Bradman at #1.

    It should, I agree. I was talking about what some CW elitists (read Bradman fanboys) will think like. You probably haven't caught the sarcasm in my post.

    Wouldn't care so much. I would disagree, but my main worry was if Imran or Sachin beat him to it.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    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

    TBF, I don't really find it unreasonable to have Sobers above Bradman. I wouldn't personally, but I can certainly see why people would.

    Nah. Thing is, this forum went to the gutter last year. And I hold my hand up for the part I played in that. But you and a very small minority of others seem intent on dragging the place back there by trying to reopen old wounds. It's ****ing dire.
