    That sucks. Mitch's comments about cricket and explaining his high economy rate in FC cricket to Flem were gold. I don't mean to talk down CW posters as some of the crew have played first class cricket. But Mitch's cricketing knowledge was very very good and made for much better reading than an average CW post.

    he's pretty damn sharp when talking about the game, much sharper than his on field persona belies, but while my blockying about him was dire at the time the crux of my point was still right - he was no where near good enough to be playing first class cricket at the time and talk of selecting him for test cricket was barking mad. that got kind of lost in the rush by everyone else to appear a tru fan in the eyes of mitch and te ahu davis.

    the one thing that flip flopped faster than my "lololol this guy sucks lol" to "this guy seems genuinely cut, i feel bad now. maybe i shouldnt be mean to him in future." was the rest of kiwi cricketweb going from inventing not very clever names like dropkins and ragging on the marshall twins to blatantly sucking mitches dick with holier than thou posts about not being mean to pros so they didn't get caught in the crossfire.

    in retrospect it's pretty funny im now firmly in mitches camp regarding sending out the most balanced attack you can because you need all kinds of bowlers.

    Thanks for that,

    Regarding the part in bold. That was indeed the thrust of his argument. But it was very well explained with no cricketing cliche's and a well formed nuanced argument where he interwove logic for and against his own case.

    Mitch has a temper problem, not in the usual "Oh, he's a big angry fast bowler" sort of way either. He genuinely believes he should be dominating every batsman he plays, that's part of the reason I'd support a move for him into the NZ side though, we're missing mongrel in our attack since Obba retired.

    can't some clever internet guru use the time machine to find it. (don't laugh at that if you havn't heard of it before. It exists for finding old content)
