    Umpires fix matches?

    Do you think umpires are given money for giving not outs outs, and outs not outs???


    I think it is true.Take today for ex. ok I admit Inzi was kinda hard to give a decision to but what about Youhana??? I mean if you cant tell that is not out you need to get your eyes checked.

    What are your views?

    I certainly think that this is a load of cobblers.

    Umpires are human.

    You have to appreciate that this tournament was played in Amsterdam - perhaps Shep had been on the Northern Light?.

    That's why they have sheepdogs.

    So that's Venkat, Shep, Simon, Billy, Bucknor, Harper and Hair who have upset one member or another in the last year or so.

    Looks like a busy time ahead for Jeremy Lloyds, Rudy Koertzen and Aleem Dar.

    Overly harsh words there, Neil.

    I do think corruption in the umpiring world is highly unlikely, but that Youhanna decision was an outrage.

    One thing no-one's mentioned...

    if the decision was such an outrage (in other words, the implication is such that it was obvious), why was there an appeal? Does this implicate the fielding side as people who would knowingly take advantage of a situation knowing full well that what they were suggesting had in fact NOT happened?

    In other words, if the umpire was incompetent (which appears on here to be an 'at best' opinion today) are the Aussies in taking advantage of such a pitiful old man who dances a little jig on occasion, clearly making an exhibition of himself in front of thousands, just a bunch of skullduggerous, contemptible cheats?

    <quack> do you really want an answer?
