    Not a fan. In general they struggle to escape from the fact that cricket has changed immensely since it's origin, making it all but impossible to compare players who played in different eras.

    Can still generate some interesting discussion though.

    I like tour threads, and any discussion around player techniques. I once started a thread on who had the best forward defence. .

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

    I hate them.

    It's always the same people who fight over them and it drags on and on. The worst part is that a new thread is created for the same category every couple of months.

    They can be good. They can be bad. They can be both.

    They go around and around in circles and you end up with the repetition of the same arguments ad nauseum because a significant chunk of people don't take too kindly to people disagreeing with them.

    Hence whenever I put Larwood in an ATG XI I refuse to debate it any further, to avoid taking the thread off topic in that direction for the fourth time.

    Current case in point being 'Is Barnes a spinner or paceman' - we have a dedicated thread for that discussion, and yet the same articles and the same arguments keep getting thrown around year after year.

    You get this mindless repetition of the same discussion that was had with different members a year previously. People disagree, ATG teams and best players are subjective, and no amount of debate will change everyone's opinion to agree with you.

    Yeh, but seriously, you can't include Larwood in any ATG team...............

    The only person better than Larwood is Siddle.

    FF can sniff a mention of Jardine or Larwood in a thread from a mile away.
