    The quarterfinal knockout system would be a good one in my books, that would mean that the tournament as a whole would be more exciting. However, a lot of people would complain and say things like "They had one bad game, they shouldn't be eliminated" if there were some minnow upsets, like Ireland beating Pakistan.

    yeah exactly...thats the reason the knockout format of the champions trophy was changed because australia complained...but if the format expands they should think about knock-out rounds because thats the only way to cut down on days and still include more teams...but there should always be a group stage 1st though...

    Ha, you are unbelievable. You couldn't prove how this tournament is fairer compared to previous ones, yet you still carry on like a spoiled prat.

    When you use the words "people complain that its not fair and all that crap", it implies you think the current format is fairer than previous ones. Yet another instance of you backtracking.

    its just you because you think india and pakistan own cricket or something...
    Way to generalise. So now pointing out that a particular format isn't fair enough for a tournament like the World Cup is thinking that "india and pakistan own cricket or something" ?? You make far too many assumptions to be taken seriously.

    anyways i was just saying what you would have said here anyway...that its not fair how the **** is that being a spoiled brat...
    Really ? Since when were you authorised to speak for me ? If I have something to say, I'll say it myself. I don't need you putting a spin on what you think I might say. Comprehend that ?

    I also think that this system is the best way, because in order to qualify for the semi finals you have to beat the best. However, a quarterfinal knockout system would add more excitement to the tournament.

    I think it's alright. The stage probably would have been more interesting with 8 competitive teams though.

    And yet, funnily enough, you have still not shown why the supposed complaining is unwarranted.


    Who the said im speaking for you?
    I did.

    I said whatever i felt like saying and so i pointed out the people like you would have complained about quarterfinals thats all...it thats not what you were going to say about quarterfinals...than go ahead say whatever..then im not talking about you but im talking about other people who will think its unfair...Comprehend?
    If you're going to try and pre-empt what others are gong to be saying, you'd better be damned well prepared to face the heat and justify that stance, explaining why you feel their points are, in your own words, "crap". Unless you can do so, you can spare us the holier than thou attitude.

    . hhhmm because a tournament's main purpose is to provide excitement for the audience...its purpose is not to be fair....



    I did.
    guess what? no, i know what i'm saying not you.

    Listen, i said what i already heard from other people and will say whatever and i'll add my comment too. I already did many time...again i explained above that a tournament's purpose isn't to be fair for the other teams...

    What you're saying is the equivalent of saying the group stages of the 2010 World Cup should be in 2009.
    I'm saying the preliminary group stages shouldn't have been part of the tournament finals, they should have been part of the qualifying.

    Which would then add in extra games.

    And marginalise the smaller nations.
