Bit of a dig for this thread, but are the ManUre of 11/12 holding their hands up here? From a lead of eight points with five games to go to being reliant on a favour from QPR with one remaining is a fair jib by anyone's estimation.

Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,

due to visit Old Tartford too, so the title was never out of our hands, technically speaking.
That was the year a bookie paid out on Man U IIRC

RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
In terms of the poll question you'd probably have to say the South African cricket team have eclipsed the All Blacks now. Obviously the All Blacks won the last World Cup and since this thread was created South Africa have dominated 2 world cups (one T20) in the groups, only to be knocked out in the first knockout game.

Bookie pays out early on Dragons
The Dragons ended up finishing in fifth. With the side that Man Utd has, I wouldn't call the actual event the biggest choke in World Sport. However, it might end up being the most costly choke or the choke which changed sporting history the most or something along those lines. Of course if Utd don't actually win the title.
Talking about the Dragons in a thread about choking. Unheard of!
Sportsbet do it all the time, and its a brilliant marketing tool. They make far more money on paying out early than they lose.
You'd think if Man City don't win the title it'll be the biggest choke of all time.
By that I mean the choke that will occur on DCYE's neck when he hangs himself. Let's hope it doesn't happen
Also I saw Man City spank the **** out of Tottenham last year and I want to be able to say I saw the champions that season play.
