The spinner is. I'm guessing there's not much spin.

Now that the controversial topic of Stokes has been dealt with, can we go back to the non-controversial topic of how poaching from impoverished teams is terrible?

this Warwickshire attack really isn't very good is it

the scenes at lords if they shook hands now.........
by Joe Williams9/28/2017 3:40:01 PM
I agree, the last over (didn't like them escaping last year).
by Dave Knibb9/28/2017 3:39:38 PM
Now if they wanted but I imagine Warks would like to try and go out on a high.
by MisanthropeGirl9/28/2017 3:39:37 PM
I think they can from now, now its officially the final hour
by Joe Tompkins9/28/2017 3:39:32 PM
NOT UNTIL THE FINAL OVER >:(
by StaggerBreaths9/28/2017 3:38:53 PM
at what point can Hants and Warks shake hands......
by Joe Williams9/28/2017 3:38:25 PM
There's still a lot of overs left SB, you never know
by Dave Knibb9/28/2017 3:36:32 PM
Unfortunately I think Hampshire have probably played out enough overs now...
by StaggerBreaths9/28/2017 3:35:12 PM
@Joe I understand fully what you say, just coming at it from different angles.

by StaggerBreaths9/28/2017 3:34:51 PM
and with that i'll leave my opinions on Stokes there, and concentrate solely on Hants vs Middx.
Personally home Hants stay up, simply because I see them as a weaker opponent next season, and we'll need all the help we can get to stay up
by Joe Williams9/28/2017 3:32:12 PM
@DaveKnibb at the risk of dragging this out further....and apologies all round, the hero worship and etc that go with becoming a public figure does also seem to increase the number of numpties that want a pop when they see you on a night out, something Botham eludes to quite frequently in his autobiog. I think it unfair to expect them to not go out ever, especially when there was no curfew etc. but yes it is wrong for them or anyone else to end up fighting

@StaggerBreaths It was a pretty good ball.
by Humair Arshad9/28/2017 3:28:51 PM
Ah, caught driving. Excellent.
by StaggerBreaths9/28/2017 3:26:43 PM
I did like what Botham said about how to mange things, but I remember him and Allan Lamb having a punch up in a Northampton pub in the mid 80's with people who were baiting them. No charges were ever pressed but, bloody hell, Lambie had one hell of a punch.

Rikki for Stokes shurely?

@StaggerBreaths I like to think SlowBowler is Peter Bowler
by Jonathan Lewis9/28/2017 3:26:28 PM
Yes yes, well done for kicking the puppy while it's down.
by StaggerBreaths9/28/2017 3:26:13 PM
We now have both MediumTedium and SlowBowler enabled on the forum.

One mitigating factor Dave is that he might find his sponsorships dry up a tad now. #yayfreemarket

I have no idea how much a typical County player earns. I saw that Gurney implied he'd bought a house with the proceeds from playing a couple of ODI.

Campeones! viva Worcestershire. Time to aim to see if we can make a full 3 season stay next time :)

At the end of the day we are all human, we are all fallible, that's fine. I have never been a 'national' figure, sadly, but i've managed to avoid being arrested for brawling in the street. When you achieve a certain level of 'celebrity' in Sport, that level of 'hero worship' comes with a certain amount of responsibiilty, that is the price you pay for the millions and the adulation. Whether you are a cricketer, footballer (Rooney being a case in point) you have a responsibility for your actions. When your 40 you can do what you want, but the riches come with certain criteria. Is that too much to ask?
