    Yeah great post Cabinet. Pointed out one of the frustrating aspects of the forum and ruined Sledger's thread all at the same time.

    I don't have a problem with the level of debate in CC

    I'm sick and tired of skidmark00's tone in the AFL thread though
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    I've never been in the AFL thread - is it worth a visit for a non-believer?

    I realise The First Chance Average has been held in some esteem around these parts for some time and, quite frankly, who am I to challenge this? I've been thinking about how any minor glitches in this system could be fixed, even though I realise it's as close to perfect as a method of calculating imaginary averages can get. Even so, I'd like to propose an addendum to Richard's first born child. Ladies and gentlemen. I give to you:

    The Fat Chance Average

    In short, it's like The First Chance Average in reverse. Any faultless innings a player has is immediately cancelled out because he was ****ing useless anyway.

    Thoughts?

    Tendulkar was a good batsman, but he isn't a pale shadow of the late great Don Bradman.

    Don bradman is a myth. He'd average 0 if he were playing today.

    Only because Tendulkar was the chef, and choked whilst cooking it.

    You know as well as I do that it was Ashok Tendulkar who used to be the chef at the Sardar Palace
