Bomber, do you think GIAE (God Isn't An Englishman) was hoping the Indians would win?

ps, GIAE talks about DRS, but regarding technology, wasn't he opposed to GLT when it was introduced to the EPL?

Could you point out in this thread where he has said he was not opposed to it.
Time for some righteous indignation

Relevance. Do you realise that football and cricket are completely different sports?

Also, note Stitch's comment above.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

Hah! Both are easy, God Isn't An Englishman.

Relevance is technology in both sports, sorting the fine margins in decisions.

As for your apologist Stitch That's confusing double negatives, if I get the chance I'll dreg out your comment that GLT is shiraz and will prove to be shiraz at it's first shiraz-up. Or perhaps you could voluntarily dreg it up for me..

I have no memory of making a comment along those lines so would love to see it.

One of the better things about this test was the fact that there was no fart-arsing about with reviews, how many are left, discussions whether to take one or not.
Still bemused how umps these days miss no-balls for overstepping so often though.

It's there somewhere, God Isn't An Englishman. Either in discussions about IFAB agendas & your opposition to changes, or in discussions about GLT in the World Cup or the EPL. Could you please scour your posts for it..

Exactly.

They can hardly say they're not happy with some decisions they're getting when they refuse to use the system that's been put in place to prevent bad decisions..

If an Australian says something, it's whingeing.
If an Englishman says something, it's "pointing out facts" or "educating" or "proving the hypocrisy".
