    I even offered you one before the previous game! :eek:

    You would have got colours and everything! Like, chosen mine I mean. :p




    Something has seriously gone wrong with this side. Everyone used to say that our strength was our depth outside our top 11. From these last few weeks that theory has been put to death.

    Nice, Kypt. You're completely right in that.

    I don't think there is actually a lot wrong with our batting. Scores around 350 are very competitive, and we've managed them OK. But our bowling when defending seems to have gone the wrong way. We can't keep opposition down like we used to.

    What was your score in the previous game? And how many wickets did we lose chasing it down?

    :p



    Anyway, we need to get organised with icons and crap for the world cup like the yanks have for their stupid domestic baseball & football "World Series" and superbowls.

    Still, jp, it's hard to go on about our batting... when someone just scored 181. :eek: :p

    Good point. We should. Hey, that could be a good game. Word Series. Is it like Boggle?

    Edit: Ha! Got you before the edit! :p :p

    You might have won the euphoric quote, but ya didn't win the series. :p

    Also, McMillan has been crucified here in the last year - no NZ Contract this year. He was brought back as cover. And it has just been beautiful watching him redeem himself.

    You know better, surely.

    Oh, and cry more, n00b.

    This series is the best prep your team could have. Imagine this happening to yo in the Windies...

    You won the small toss, outlander, but you won't win the World Cup, so it makes little difference.

    :p




    McMillan did hit that century rather fast. =D=

    Regarding the icons, think we should just head over to the icons thread in Comms?

    You're the mod, you tell me! :p

    Oh - can we piss everyone (else) off and have a custom banner for this forum too!? ;)

    Probably true. But neither will you. I'd say some subcontinent team will step up to the plate.

    Oh, shush, I don't know what I'm doing. :p

    (I'll go check it out or get in contact DVeditor ;))

    If somebody makes it... :p


    Edit: I hope you saw that Star Wars quote. :p I'd pick Aus and India to be the finalists and the teams with the highest chances of winning.

    Yeah, I'll PM you as I have some ideas for icons that are a little more fun than just country flags.


    Oh, hey, do you think Channel 9 will be putting out a DVD retrospective? I'd buy a copy or two.

    True, we'd need action pics. Or a head pic of Mark Waugh, which everybody would use. :D

    Must have been after during the same minute, because I didn't see it. :p

    A DVD retrospective of what? The Chappell-Hadlee series?

    I have an Australian/New Zealand Cricket DVD at home - Battle of the Tasman.

    It's very good - Australia wins the last four matches :p

    lol... in what universe can "drunken" be reasonably replaced with "euphoric"?

    Um... so will we not be using the Guinness beer banner for St. Patricks Day this year? You know.... promoting alcohol, and whatnot. Just wondering... I didn't realize saying "drunken" was a bannable offense now. When did this happen?

    I did not replace it, I just removed it. Not that this is the place to be discussing such things. As I am sure you are aware. :p But you can all see this thread, particularly gabe's post.

    I'm gonna take this to PM, but there was an actual arena mod in the midst of last night's conversation, and you came back 1/2 an hour later and edited me and banned me? At worst I could have got a warning, and you should have deferred to an Arena mod.

    I'm pretty disappointed.
