Yes, especially when the poms were one of the first busted for such a thing. Best to learn from the best (at it).

Anyway, this one was done by a Victorian (eastern monkey) so throw as much mud as you want. :P

Well we know you've been dedicated the town crier job and of "Aussies have done something we've done" police as you seem to bring every little thing up and have a whinge about it.
Amazed the boxing champ failing a drug test hasn't been put up in headlights yet. Off your game a bit?

Hadn't seen that, how funny.

Back to zero Aussie world heavyweight champions again. I'm actually disappointed to hear that, was looking like he'd be fighting Haye pretty soon.

B sample yet untested, but I wouldn't hold my breath. At least if its tested positive, then fair game, unlike Essendon players.

To be fair, he doesn't look the sharpest tool in the shed and is unlikely to know what he had for breakfast this morning. That said, I wouldn't say it to him directly. :wink:

Are there lights at Glenelg and if so can they use them? Who makes the decision on bad light, umpires or the batsmen?

The umpire makes the decision. I assume shield cricket follows the same competition rules as test match where this decision is the umpires alone now.

Didn't they use to offer it to the batsmen? I guess South Australia will be praying for bad light.

We could have doctored the pitch but didn't. Such is life

So both only made the final because of a dodgy pitch

6 team comp - doesn't need a final - top team wins, simple (as it did up to 1982). That said, I hear they are looking at first past the post again as most finals in recent years have been almost farcical.

The whole comp is almost a total waste of effort. No spectators and the final result hardly getting a mention anywhere in the News

Nobody likes it and nobody cares :shock:

Both of those had a better WDL ratio than South Australia.

Finals in 4 days cricket are pretty strange. Especially when one team doesn't even have to go for the win.

It's irrelevant to the discussion. The team on top is the one that earns the most points. SA earned more bonus points.

Under the previous system (where first innings points were awarded), all three teams would have ended on 5 Outright wins (30 points), 1 First innings win (1 point). It would've then come down to Run Rate, which I'm gathering SA would have led (based on the actual batting bonus points received this season)

As Slinky has said, that's the system. It encourages you to take wickets and score runs. It's an attempt at an equaliser when games can be weather affected or a non Win/Loss result for various reason.

Didn't first innings win be two points? Under that system Victoria would have had 30 points, New South Wales 26 points and South Australia 22 points. Bonus points is a load of bollocks.

Whether it is 2 points or 1 point doesn't matter.

Dunno how you count any team on less than 30. All 3 teams had 5 wins in 2015/16.

Of the draws/losses incurred, all 3 teams only had 1 first innings win each. So 1 or 2 points.

In fact, I missed QLD, who hypthettically had 5 outrights, and 3 First innings wins. They would have been top.
