    RIP Vlagman

    Such sad news! He will be missed. His point of view and opinion was always worth the time. It cannot be easy for a family who've relocated & are away from "home"......... He'll live on in his posts on this forum (and others) and in our memories.

    must confess, Tubby was a welcome change from all the regular sights on the field. We need to see many more "different" looking people playing this game. Right now it seems like there's a blueprint that all players look the same and almost play the same. They've had every last scrap of their originality coached out of them.......imho Paul Adams, Murali, Warne and others all different and all did well - makes you think?

    There's only so many places in the slip cordon, & he takes up three.......... I too enjoyed watching him bowl - it made for a welcome change from all the sprinters who come roaring in & take 5 minutes to complete an over

    nobody seemed to complain about their contracts & payments either, or were they too scared to raise their voices? Maybe it's time to give up on SA cricket........

    imho, all this new crap about BLM & taking the knee etc by the Proteas refers - As i remember it, the ANC demanded a quota system for all sporting codes. i definitely don't remember any players complaining when they were selected, but now, years later we hear that they encountered racism in the team.........? i also remember a lot of people on this forum being VERY unhappy with the way everything was handled, and they predicted it would all collapse and that standards would drop. They were 100% correct.
  7. A simple solution - Super Sport must discontinue their sponsorship.

    Stokes doesn't look like a jailbird anymore.............
  9. They're so arrogant! They are going to learn that they are not the centre of world rugby - like we did during sports sanctions. Everybody needs everybody, especially in the fast changing sports world. What works today won't work tomorrow.
  10. Covid lockdown for life..........what a wanker!!

  14. from Merriam-Webster........ Like many other terms from black culture that have been taken into the mainstream, woke is gaining broader uses. It’s now seeing use as an adjective to refer to places where woke people commune: woke Twitter has very recently taken off as the shorthand for describing social-media activists. The broader uses of woke are still very much in flux, and there are some who are woke to the broader implications of woke: “Woke” feels a little bit like Macklemore rapping in one of his latest tracks about how his whiteness makes his rap music more acceptable to other white people. The conundrum is built in. When white people aspire to get points for consciousness, they walk right into the cross hairs between allyship and appropriation. —Amanda Hess, New York Times, 16 Apr. 2016 and so on and so on and so on.........
