    How come...

    ...every thread here eventually evolves into a pointless, multi-page argument between Richard/tooextracool/marc71178 (choose two from three)? It is just intensly irritating to see a new thread with an intresting topic but by the time I've found it it has already run completley off topic and transformed into above said condition.

    Richard/tooextracool/marc71178: please do not contrive to turn this thread into an argument. That would be irritatingly ironic.

    I agree entirely, I don't mind the last 2 but Richard just posts dozens of replies in a row at such a rate that you wonder whether he even bothered to confer with his brain before churning the replies out. I suggest clicking on the ID name on the left and adding them to an ignore list, it's not ideal but it's better than nothing.

    It's just the way it goes...
    someone makes smart-arsed comment...one of the three(usually Richard) decides it's wrong and tries to re-educate smart-a*** into his way of cricket thinking...TEC and/or marc disagree with it(I think it's just for the sake of it)...thread evolves into your "pointless, multi-page argument"...none of the three will back down and strive harder to get their views across...as neither backs down, thread, sorry-argument, goes on forever


    ...you can't do anything about it. Besides, I like these arguments, without them CW would be boring(well, not boring, but more boring than with them)

    I think we should, just to annoy him! Richard, you're the master of this stuff, would you like to do the honours?

    The problems come from the like of these Scaly piscine types, who dismiss out-of-hand the unconventional because they can't take their long-fond-held ideas being questioned.

    All topics evolve, very fast.
    If you can't keep up, check the boards more regularly.
    Title-topics don't usually stay for much more than 1 page - except *Official* Threads. Once you get about a page on a one-off subject it starts to get very, very boring.
    And in any case, just because there are off-topic posts further down, doesn't mean you can't still reply to earlier on-topic posts, now, does it?

    Because they come on here and disagree with the codswallop you spout?

    I must say that I do see Richard's point on occasion, but seldom agree with it. Still, I can see where he's coming from and appreciate that he believes what he believes.
    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."

    and you have a problem with scrolling up the page and replying to any of the older posts or even making your own comment? i dont think any of us mind if you post something in the middle of our argument that has no relation to the argument but is related to the topic of the thread.....the should shoaib akthar be dropped thread shows that.....
    if you cant keep up with whats going on in the thread then its entirely your fault, and you are welcome to ignore any or all of us if you need to.

    Yes it's annoying, I don't see why they need to post their messages one after the other after the other etc. Think for a few mintues, then post, then go do something else.

    and who says we dont think before we post? just because we happen to be able to post a lot quicker than what you would be able to ,doesnt mean that we dont think it out.
    and i personally dont think posting one after another is annoying, because ive never found it hard to scroll up and go back a few pages.....

    Im actually going to go the other way and say im fine with marc and Richard, particularly Richard, because both their arguments/points are interesting, accurate posts. Richard is the only person I can argue sensibly with.

    Tooextracool however, he seems to always do these loooong boring, incorrect posts which seem to have about 50 quotes in them etc. It does get a bit annoying, although Richard does it as well, most of the time hes right.

    Well, I guess there are the theorists who want to create an algebraic equation for everything including this game of ours and then there are the ones who watch the universe (and the game) and see and form their opinions. Not sure which one is correct but I prefer the latter given the phrase "glorious uncertainties" fits this game more then anything else and cannot be defined by equations or such.....although soccer has gone the same way without the glorious part after those damn "Grecians" won the Euro. The theorists need more space and these boards provide enough of that and I don't really begrudge any of that although I can't ever agree to the dross like McGrath and Pollock are two lucky *******s or Sachin has been the most over rated batsman ever and stuff like that.
    Flames are welcome, but beware of the *Backdraft *
