I was scanning through this thread...must say LongHopCassidy is in top form here...
"I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."

as much as I like KP (probably my favorite English player in the current team) but he is a douche bag
KP it is
Round 1, Battle 16 results:
Tony Greig - 1
Kevin Pietersen - 12
Herschelle Gibbs - 12
Well, bugger me. Tiebreaker to KP on antipodean impulse and for not dropping us a World Cup.

(I am large, I contain multitudes.
The Boil for me too - regret nominating him tbh
Trevor Bailey. Was a terribly nice chap. Has no business being in this.

Supporting Petone's Finest since the very start - Iain O'Brien
Adam Wheater - Another batsman off the Essex production line
Also Supporting the All Time #1 Batsman of All Time Ever - Jacques Kallis and the much maligned Peter Siddle.
Vimes tells it how it is:
Like all of Afridi, Kohli and KP. Bailey is the only one where I didn't see the claim to begin with, though.
Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.
Yeah, Barnacle Bailey for me too, please.
I see Ponting carries all Australia's hopes on those stooping shoulders, btw.

- As featured in The Independent.
"as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
- Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
Can we not just stick Boycott through?
