    Well, look, I probably should have been a little more cautious with my lip. The issue was just that I found it particularly ironic that it should be a Black player who found this "unfair", when Black in all likelihood would get absolutely nowhere near the guy, being fourth in line, and also having received the most bonus points for batting in FC last year (and probably would have got most batting bonus points in OD have we had that).

    So. Apologies for speaking out of turn when in an official position. (Or rather, a more official position than captain.)

    Don't see how FC batting points from Season XI come into it when our 3 best FC batsmen are all now gone.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    You're not as good at being a prat as Graeme. Try harder.
    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."

    The "super" in this case meant in relation to the other recent sign ups.

    No, but it does seem unfair on some new sign ups that they're both a worse batsman and worse (or even non-) bowler than others.

    In what way?? Everyone has the opportunity to sign up with different stats. We don't force others to sign up with a particular batting average. If one person signs up with a 38 average, it's lowered to 34. If another signs up with a 43 average, it's lowered to 39. There's still 5 between the two. It's not unfair on either party.

    What's the highest you can sign up as? In terms of average?

    All rookie batting stats peak at 41.

    We get contacted by email?

    Email: hell_yes429 at hotmail dot com. I think I missed out the 4, when I signed up. So just for safety.

    You didn't miss out the 4, actually.

    It's only the captains of the five teams who will be emailing you, so if you don't want everyone to see it I can take it out and send it to the captains only.

    The process is detailed somewhere on the forum. Can't be arsed to find it. Fielding isn't adjusted. Bowling is generally treated with a standard 4-run(per wicket) adjustment too.

    I couldn't care less about what rookies we sign itbt. I still think it's wrong that Colts get first pick for both the best batsmen. Anyway, it seems I'm on my own here so I'm willing to let it slide.

    So basically the trick is sign up with 100 batting and 12 bowling then.

    Noted for future reference...

    I get you point, but signing up with a batting average of 50, 100 or a 1000 makes no difference if its capped at 41 for rookies.

    Haha, didn't you "moderate" CDM for calling Rodgie a prat?

    Double standards IMO.
