    You'll need to give a coherent reason why Jager. There is quite a lot of biographical data on Laker in Fred's essay, despite not being a biographical piece per se. Consequently it would be finicky to reject it.

    However, the same cannot be said about the article you selected for Barry Richards. From a memory it contained little more than a paragraph about Richards because most of it was about the entire South African team of the early 70s.

    (But I can see where you are both coming from.....).

    My pick was far worse (I didn't actually read it all because I was tired, I just searched for "Procter" and saw it appeared ~20 times all throughout the piece so I presumed it was close enough.

    The clause specifically states it needs to be a biography, not a recap of a player's finest moment with some background story to the man.

    Yes I understand. But Marcuss won't be on-line for some hours because it's currently 3 am in the UK. In the meantime, anything up to 8 players will have been picked and therefore unavailable. If there is a problem with a selection then it really needs to be 'nipped in the bud' quickly so as to avoid extra heart-ache. Of course, if you had an 'iron-clad case' then things would be different; like Fred's piece was about flower arranging or something. But you don't.

    I think it's now a case of the 'horse has bolted'.

    (My apologies for the use of two or three awful cliches)

    Still needs to change it, I didn't get on CW for a long period of time after my Richards pick but it was obviously not good enough
