    because age if it ain't broke don't fix it. and if malcolm speed doesn't take cricket to rome, we do as the romans do ourselves and don't take it there.

    we gotta keep some reality in this and taking high quality CW players to face up to Guissepie the feared opening bowler for Udinese running off a 4 step run up is hardly good.
    lmao, Guissepie can be pretty fearsome down wind i hear

    You could have other foreign players in there.

    So we could have:

    Milan vs Venice 25Smash Italy.

    Eclipse 14(13), Gayle 50(25), Milan 90/1 9 overs.

    David Jr. 2-0-15-1, Lucisoni 1-0-5-0.

    You know what I mean?
    Or something.

    it will most likely be the way it is right now.. when you read it.. substitute the teams for italian teams or whatever and the player names into italian players..

    Are you still going to do Australian Domestic? Because I can do all the teams for you if needed.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    But that can't really be done when some people only treat it as a sim and others treat it with realism. It would have to be considered by all to be realistic.

    Something tells me it wouldn't really be an accurate protrayal anyway. If Italian players only play in Italy (I've never heard of international players going to Italy to improve their game), then they'd not have averages which are accurate to how they'd cope in a country such as England. If their averages are put into the sim without any regard for the fact that they only play against other Italians, hell, we could well end up with bowlers and batsmen that may as well push for an Italian world cup winning team. Who knows? Maybe there's an Italian that, against other Italians, can score a century once in every two games and can bowl them out at fifteen a piece - yet is actually no better than James Franklin or Andre Adams, who sometimes have trouble getting into the NZ starting squad, let alone the Black Caps in general.

    I'm not against using Italy if the averages of the Italians are used to create an Italian XI for the World Cup. The sim runs using stats, and the stats are only generated from their games against other Italians, so they should have a good chance of winning, eh?

    That's what I mean by realism. It's not realistic to use CW Dev League stats and then throw them up against Italian domestic stats and consider them accurate and comoparable.

    EDIT: I can't even find a stats page for the individual teams.
    REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.

    Yeah, I didn't mean to have every Italian who averages 40(for example) to be as good as Buggsy or Cloete.

    Any thoughts on China and Holland?

    We could send some of the lesser lights like Dave out there instead!

    He could learn a lot from Guissepie!

    I woudn't think you could play while the trial is ongoing, I'd think you'd be OK until then.

    This is NOT an officall CWBBC Statement.
