    I feel myself posting in this a lot ;)

    specially with a new footy season coming up *lol*

    did anyone see in last night's game (Crows V Hawks) Tyson Edwards kicked a goal from beyond 50 & was clearly a super goal given 6 points ?

    The umpires review the tape at the end of the quarter & ruled it as a regular goal despite him being out of the 50 !:eek:

    ALL of the commentators were dumbfounded byt this !!

    Good thing Adelaide didn't lose by less than 3 points.

    :mad:

    and...

    WRGMG...

    Meh, they made up for it with a super goal not too long after ... don't knock the umps until you've tried it yourself. Yes, they make mistakes, but so do the players. It's not that easy ... trust me! ;)

    Adelaide was always going to win ... the juniors played well. Move along ... :p

    I didn't mind listening to Jason Dunstall commentate.

    I have tried umpiring too, whilst not footy umpiring, I've umpired lower level cricket & also indoor cricket. To be honest I found cricket umpiring not relatively difficult..perhaps I should've followed it through more, but I found playing more fun :p

    Footy umpiring might be different however ;)

    WRGMG?

    Prank calls.

    I'm following up whether hidden/withheld numbers can actually be identified from the phone company's end...I'm going to pursue this crap with all the legal force I can because the other options I have (because I'm very sure I know who the perpetrators are) aren't technically legal ;)

    Compared to footy umpiring, cricket umpiring is ridiculously easy. There's no stoppage in play while players appeal for a decision in footy. Two very different sports ... you simply can't compare them.

    skipp - PM me if you want to know how much phone companies can find out ... or perhaps a call? Happy to discuss ;)


    WRGMG?

    Watching a game knowing your team is going to lose :p

    WRGMG..

    Australia, after nearly 20 years as the best team in the world at both forms of the game, no longer being the best

    :(

    still, not a bad run ;)

    Even longer than the West Indies in the 80's

    They aren't out of the finals series granted, but they certainly aren't the same team they used to be :(

    Still hopeful for Brisbane though :D

    This is what people said when we lost the Chappell Hadlee series 0-3 to NZ.
    Then we went and won the World Cup flawlessly for the 3rd time running.

    When we lost the Ashes 1-2 to England? Next time we beat them 5-0.

    So our batsmen havent been firing this summer, your point? Its happened before, you can be sure it'll happen again. But we'll come back from it. We are still the best outfit in the world, and it wont change anytime soon :)

    If these a/wipes playing for their country concentrated on what they are SUPPOSED to be doing rather than jumping on every commercial chance they get perhaps their form would be at the level it should be.
    Sit back & think about how many commercials we've been bombarded with this summer featuring our cricketers. Fair enough they have to earn a living but I personally think they've sold themselves out at the expense of their craft.

    They're sportsmen, not actors. Talk about selling yourself out.

    Hey Oz,

    As far as I know, depending on the content of these prank calls, you can place a Police report for abusive/harrassing calls. The Police will then be able to obtain the information from Telstra (even if they are private/blocked numbers). Hope you are able to catch and prosecute these people, or at the very least, have the calls stopped. It is such a cowardly act to hide behind a phone call to harass someone. Good luck mate :)

    Phoon.

    At least the ground will be soft enough to hammer the pegs into
