    I think the plural of "moose" is "moose".

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Moose.

    I can see where you are coming from though - the plural of 'goose' is 'geese' but that's English for you - many collective nouns containing a double 'o' in the singular are irregular.

    For instance, the plural of 'buffoon' is 'Cornishmen'.

    It was aimed at squeakyclean, but if you want to pick it up as your own personal insult from me with love, feel free to keep it.
