**** off with this "who, me?" ****, you disingenuous prick. You've been bagging other teams and places retreading racist tropes for ****ing years, and it hasn't gone unnoticed. Line and Length has called it out before, HB has called it out and now I'm calling it out. And when you trade in that line of posting, don't be so surprised when you get accused of it in threads like this.We can keep up the accusations of racism and ethno-nationalism though, amirite?
I feel insulted that I've not been mentioned here.**** off with this "who, me?" ****, you disingenuous prick.

Except it seems to me, unless I’m completely off base, which is possible, 90% of the people who make posts about Murali and his action on here are literally just making a joke and not genuinely having a go at him. Especially with Burgey and TJB you can definitely see from their posting history here not to take much of their overly negative posts here seriously, they’re literally usually just trying to get a laugh out of people. Sadly though a lot of people can’t take those jokes and now we’ve had what was a decent thread about an interesting topic derailed and ruined.Is that not a problem? If it isn't considered to be one (that greats of the past were likely to be chucking by the old laws before the update and so shouldn't generally be given much credit for their abilities and records like how people disparage Murali's) then why is Murali one? - basically my point, but for some reason people don't get it.
AKA generally people can stop being hypocrites regarding this and consistently bringing up one player only.
If people still don't get this then there's really no hope for their mental faculties.
JFC HB, that's so piss poor. Look I'm firmly in the camp of Murali being a deadset legend of our game and it does wind me up that his legacy is still tarnished.......just because I don't give a **** about 5, 10 or 15 degrees extension, I just don't think it's important for a spinner (and I know I'm in the minority here) cricket is richer for having Murali play the game.
But playing the race card cos someone sees it different to you is dire in the extreme.
You missed the part where i have already addressed this. The fact that Hair felt he was doing the right thing or that he was legally allowed to call a no ball does not mean anything given it was so blatantly predetermined.. Did he try to ask why others did not call it the same way, for instance?Hair and other umpires felt it diplomatic to report their concerns to the ICC and the ICC in turn passed their report on to the BCCSL who did nothing. Faced with this inaction, and concerned that batsmen might be dismissed by an unfair delivery, Hair acted accordingly. You keep bringing up "studies of action or science" and yet you fail to mention that those studies and science only arose after Murali was called for what was deemed/perceived/ruled (call it what you will) to have an unfair action under the Laws of Cricket at that time.
The fact that Murali's action has since been cleared and legitimised is only because of subsequent studies and science. Without Hair acting as he did, this may not have happened.
have you ever considered that it might feel a bit rich to cast the racist die at burger of all people when we have proper eugenicists and eugenicist adjacent people on the forumHey guys Burgey doesn't do bad thing because his designated simp said so
Nobody cares about the fact McGrath technically chucked under the old laws or whatever going by the degrees because his action looked perfectly fineNeither does idiocy.
It's always interesting that chucking never comes up for other greats of the past who presumably all chucked to certain extents like McGrath and co did when tested beyond mild jokes that are never taken seriously, instead only popping up whenever Murali's name is brought up. Wonder why....
