"Rise above it". "It's only a game". "Don't be a bad loser". "He's a nice guy off the field". Sorry I'm having none of it. Why be all sympathetic, magnanimous, and empathetic when a good rant is far crueller? It's time to let rip folks. It's time to stop suppressing that anger [...]

The Monday Mash

2019-04-01T20:10:18+00:00April 1st, 2019|Fun|9 Comments

With the IPL currently dominating the headlines there's been very little to write about of late. I guess I could have written about India's domestic T20 circus but there are two big reasons why I didn't: A) I'm simply not following it, so any article would've been guesswork. B) I doubt TFT's [...]

I've received some great rants from guest writers in recent weeks and this one's a cracker. Gareth Fitzgerald, take a bow.  What is there left to say about Sky Sports and their end-of-day discussion show? Anything remotely positive, the churlish might offer. As one who has steadfastly refused to suckle from Sky’s [...]

Top 10 Worst Cricket Commentators

2019-10-04T17:01:24+00:00September 24th, 2018|Fun|68 Comments

Today we welcome new writer Alex Ferguson (no relation). I imagine he feels a lot better after getting this off his chest. Let's just hope the cricket commentators singled out never see this ... Cricket has coursed through my veins since the age of 8 when I first started following the England [...]
