    Articles by Jager

    Not sure what the rules are regarding this - I've been writing a lot recently for my blog & I thought I'd share my cricket articles here.

    I am studying journalism at La Trobe in Melbourne, but these pieces are purely for fun/entertainment. They aren't related to coursework or moneymaking in any way.

    I'm always open to criticism & feedback, I want to become a better writer. Please go ahead.

    Here's what I just finished writing then - an article that remembers one of the most brutal innings I've ever seen.

    The timing was just a coincidence actually, GF's piece was unreal though & I was definitely thinking of it when I wrote it

    Know it wasn't the focus of the question, but love the Rossi pierce, was having a similar conversation about him just yesterday. Marques is something special though and apparently the younger and more fearless you are the better you can be.

    Thanks mate! It's interesting how he's changed. I have no doubts in my mind he was the greatest ever in his prime, but there's something missing now. Marquez will win five world championships IMO (huge call), he's something else. More talented than Lorenzo/Pedrosa & on the best bike in the paddock

    I really like the following lines from the 'The Archie Jackson Way'. Both are interesting for different reasons;

    .....but he was never an artist like Jackson was his silky, free-flowing drives enthralling the memories of those lucky enough to have witnessed them. One concerned himself with numbers, the other with beauty and freedom a scientist next to a painter.

    Even inches from death, Jackson recognized the unparalleled achievements of his friend taming the Don. There were no hard feelings, for he understood Larwood was just doing what he was told. Such was the nature of the man.

    All the articles are pleasant to read, and held my concern from the onset. Top job. As everyone else, I loved the Jackson article. I would love it if you could write a piece on how insufferable Katich's treatment has been

    As an aside, I remembered being enthralled with Rossi's season against Gebernau that you mentioned. It was my first time following MotoGP and I could only imagine what I had missed the past few years with Rossi. It felt very weird to me as to why he moved to Yamaha. I stopped following a few years ago, as none of the champions really excited me, same as what happened when Alonso's run ended in F1.
    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    You and I are similar with the Alonso/Rossi love, two giants of their repective sports. The 2005 MotoGP season was something else, time and time again Rossi seemed to trump Gibernau. I remember they were neck and neck at Brno on the last lap when Gibernau ran out of fuel, it was hard to believe.

    As for the article suggestion, thanks a lot - really love when people suggest things to write, nice to know what people would like to see. I'll definitely look into it - I have a bit to say about the treatment of players because of their age so it'd work in nicely with that - what do you think?
