    Okay, seriously though.....

    Not sure what the point of this tread is, but I like mountain biking. Pretty much anything on two wheels is fun for me.

    It's not sport unless it involves Russell Ingall chasing Craig Lowndes around a mountain in a big hunk of steel! :p

    Ok, Cricket, more specifically the current series against India.

    Sydney test: What a great example of test match cricket, IMO the best since the ashes of ‘05. After almost 5 days of play it took until the second last over of the final day for a result to be settled. The umpiring was atrocious with India probably copping the rougher end of a pretty rough sick. Consequently Anil Kumble had a whinge about the spirit in which Australians played the game and the ICC’s most senior umpire was sacked from the Perth test. I read a great reader response to an article on baggygreen soon after the test match. It said the only thing Australia did wrong in the Sydney test match was win the game. Think about it. If the result had of been a draw, would Anil Kumble have vented his post match disappointments on the aussies lack of "spirit"? Probably not. And the umpiring decisions, although dreadful, would not have looked as bad as they would have not influenced the result of the game.
    As for the Australian side, the lack of depth in our spinning stocks post Warnie was brutally exposed with Brad Hogg failing to take a single wicket in the second innings and being well and truly upstaged by the part timers Clarke and Symonds. Lets hope Stuey MacGill can get back to form…

    Perth Test: India played very well to break a tied record streak of 16 straight test matches for the Aussies. Again more holes in the aussie side were exposed with debutant Chris Rogers not even going close to half filling the shoes of an injured Matty Hayden. More importantly, the Australian attack looked far from threatening with Johnson and Tait unable to contribute significantly.

    Heres hoping for another good contest in Adelaide :kickass:

    NHL is one of the greatest sports to watch. Being I always choose the Mighty Ducks in the video games, and the movies I go for the Ducks as it was the only team I knew.

    It was great to see India win the third test, as it will make the final one miles more interesting than it would otherwise have been. It adds real spice to the series.

    I don't think MacGill will ever play test cricket again. He looks too comfortable now making TV ads.

    He was majorly fucked over in the first innings though... why didn't Cricket Australia lodge a complaint about the umpiring and threaten to cancel the rest of the tour because of it?

    Oh yeah, because we don't blackmail the ICC at every turn. I laughed out loud when India went on about the "spirit of the game".... I'll see if I can dig up the details, but they did exactly the same thing during their last tour of South Africa. Threatened to cancel matches, abused umpires and so forth and still tried to claim the moral high ground

    But the point is, Australia has been on the rough end of the decision stick plenty of times before, and we usually take it in stride. It seemed like the Indian team was trained in Bollywood acting the way they caused a fuss. Oh, and the Indian fans? It's a game you fucking twats, keep the effigy burning for something that actually matters in the world. The umpires weren't out to 'get' India, what ever happened to just upholding the Umpires decision and getting on with the game.

    Either way, i'm looking forward to Thursdays test.

    The Australian can't win no matter what..... when we "play hard", we're accused of being cheats and sore winners. When we lose, we're told that we are too soft

    I think you totally misunderstood the point. The point was that we can take losing in stride, and no, we don't go out bashing Indians just becuase we lose a test match. We usually understand that it's just a game, and our team knows how to take a defeat. The Indians DON'T, at least not at the moment, and the way they react at losing is fucked. If losing a game means blaming everyone else, starting commotions, and burning things in the Indian culture, then i don't want anything to do with India.

    Same could be said for Leyton Hewitt.... I've never heard him say after a loss "he just played better then me". He ALWAYS has some sort of excuse or lays the blame elsewhere (as he did in the warm-up to the Aussie Open by blaming the court WTF?)
