    The Jets Thread

    Who said Grade teams weren't allowed their own threads to converse in? No one. Good.


    First of all, I'd like to welcome Megan Gaukroger to this (not so) mighty club.

    Next, I'd like to congratulate you all on our one victory this year, yet firmly point out that we have lost two and more effort is required.... Get out and ****ing practise, lazy gits!


    Btw, for when Håk reads this: are you allowed to opt out of a few Grade games? When I played, Tharmi didn't get a bowl.

    Surprised it took this long for one of these to emerge.

    Does this mean the likes of RF Prabhakar Rao will be posting here now?
    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."

    Perhaps. I'm expecting Holden Wallis to be the most active, though.



    Btw, Shouldn't Suds be inactive?

    Nope. He's tied up with academics atm, but generally posts around these parts whenever he's on CW. He did his best to establish activity in the offseason/preseason.


    Worth noting that inactivity will only be assessed at the end of each quarter.

    Once my moderator powers were invoked I was going to set up a thread for each club, but I might instead make a thread and invite someone from each club to write a history of their club.

    Edit: Tired and many errors. Probably still some.

    You need mod power to make threads?

    No, but I'd be able to maintain them.
    Unfortunately when you're a pleb, you can only edit your posts for a couple of days before they're set in stone. Mods however....



    Edit: Yes Sean, you can opt out of playing a few grade cricket games.

    Just playing yourself back into form after a 3 season absence, I bet. Those scores will come flooding in once you've got it back.

    I hope that's all it is and I also hope the ankle injury that kept me out won't flare again!!

    It hasn't been a great start at the Jets, first our batting was going no where, now our bowling is.

    Some pretty good performances results of late have jumped us up to 3rd on the table. Top stuff guys especially to James, Thamba and Chris in the last game.
