    Oh no it doesn't - it is far worse than that.

    Nothing wrong with them if you don't mind looking a complete muppet.

    Spaz has cerebral palsy/******* connotations and there's not another word on the matter.

    Agreed... I think Streaks Zimbabweans are role models in that sense..

    SA bowlers are generally very good too, AD was all about controlled agression, Nel seems to over step the line, some may say its over enthusiasm, others may say its unacceptable behaviour... The more wickets he takes, the more ill forgive him

    Spaz - One who is considered clumsy or inept.

    It's from the word ******* which, according to dictionary.com, means...

    1. Of, relating to, or characterized by spasms: a ******* colon; a ******* form of cerebral palsy.
    2. Affected by ******* paralysis.
    3. Offensive Slang. Clumsy or inept.

    Now that I've given the English lesson for the day, there's not another word on the matter.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Think the problem with Brad williams is that he's a prat, dont rate the guy either.

    I've noticed that Ganuguly can go a bit too far when a bowler of his takes a wicket, dont mind bowler send offs but there's no need for the skiper to charge in too. Ganguly's send offs when he gets a wicket a OTT, like the other nite Vs. Aus when he charged dow nto long on after clarke was caught but Gaviskar (i think?).

    Hate it when brett lee does that 'chainsaw' thing when he motions punchin the ground after gettin a wicket. Does he not see replays and think "What am i doing?" cos we all do!

    Andre Nel's just a ****, even flintoff (he can get abit OTT with his celebrations) commented last summer that he (Nel) didnt really play with the correct spirit.

    Dont mind a good send off long as its not a tail ender, or anything like squaring up to the batsman. Thought the Lee Vs. Bond send off was good fun cos you knew when lee game up against bond next lee was gonna get plenty of stick back from bond.

    The most annoying Andre Nel moments are when he's been hit for a few fours then gets a wicket gifted to him and acts all high and mighty like he earned it.

    Enough about Nel though, I'm sure there are many other cricketers out there worthy of our scrutiny.

    Brett Lee used to be one of the worst in this area.

    Ganguly is almost there i think.:P

    Why does Lee always look so angry. It just so silly. Whenever I took wickets back in my days of playing cricket, I would smile and be happy. Maybe I might punch the air with my fist. But thats as far as I'd ever go. I've heard tales of players yelling at batsmen, 'go home you piece of sh.t'. Why why why!?!?!?!?!?


    IMO, the best celebration of someone taking a wicket was when Mark Richardson caught and bowled Youhana to get his first ever test wicket. Top stuff. It really was.

    speaking of Mark Richardson im sure many people will remember his bow and salute to the crowd against the Aussies a few years back when he caught a certain player for 99.

    i sure do.

    I wasnt aware that "spaz" had such a harsh meaning.my bad.

    anyway,send offs are not on.

    I don't see what is wrong with send offs.

    But it cannot become offensive, that is stepping over the mark.
    thats the problem.it usually is offensive.When a bowler gets a batsmen out,and the bowler walks towards him pointing to the dreessing room as if to say "get your *** out of here",how can that not be offensive?

    That's odd, whenever I see Lee, he has a giant smile on his face. When he takes a wicket, it gets even bigger. :rolleyes:

    Nel was pathetic in a one dayer in Pakistan and they fined Akhtar for some thin in the next one dayer. No one in Pakistan raised any thing though coz they were 'grateful' South Africa were atleast touring the country. I found that very amusing.
