    Throwing Stuff

    When I play backyard cricket, you cannot throw stuff at other people. It will result in two runs. These "things" incldue little gumnuts off tree, grass, shoes (yes, shoes) and other things. the rule was brought in at the arrival of the shoe, as it happened I got out, after Sanka threw a shoe at me. He won the innings due to this, with the worst bowler (Matt) still haveing 3 balls to go, off which I neede 1 run.

    Well one day, needing 4 runs to rake the lead (and virtaully win) and to reach my double century (dont ask, wierd scoring system), Nick got me out. I was so dissapointed, knowing I had lost.

    The next bastman in was David, whos average was only twenty and high score was 104. Yes we actually calculate this. He had no hope of reaching 200, so Nick (the one who got me out) was going to win.

    Sanka (the shoe guy) then decided he didnt want Nick to win and threw 4 gumnuts at me! results in 8 runs, winning me the match and giving me my first double centrury. Nick was so dissapointed and annoyed at Sanka that he began yelling and screaming at him.

    Since then the throwing rule has changed, as have the scoring system. Well, the thrpowing rule hasnt really cganged, just the scoring system making less attractive. Now bowling is included to your score, subtracting it from a HUGE batting total, sometimes over 300, but most scores end up at about 60. This meaning that if you throw something at someone, they get 10 runs and you have ten runs against your bowling, giving you a lower final score.
    And if the outcome of your score has already been decided, the runs go to the next innings.

    When I first arrived at Cricketweb, I really couldnt post to save myself, could I?

    I put forward a motion to have this thread removed, due to the complete rubbish it contains. Worst post ever.

    Not correct. Someone in another forum actually dug it up to bag me out. He seemed very determined to dig up some dirt though, considering that not only did he google "Prince EWS" but he then joined Cricketweb just to use the search feature.

    Actually, you would've still only been 14 at the time. Almost all 14/15 year old posters are pretty much ******** though. I remember well when you totally sucked EWS, and have been surprised of late to find you a much improved poster, but of course that was always going to occur naturally over time. You still have a way to come though.

    Yes, so do I.

    In fact, if I came into contact with 13-14 old "me" on a forum of any sort, I would probably absolutely hate them and get into repeated arguements.

    I apologise to all for two years of absolutely pathetic posts - and not just on Cricketweb, on all forums.

    We can't post anything that is critical towards others obviously. The truth hurts.
