"JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE LOSING. NA Na NANA NA, What a petulant bunch of sore losers, spitting the dummy namby pambies, only a couple of players worth their salt. Read it in the Sydney Daily Telegraph. Long gone are the days when a batsman was given a more gentlemanly departing statement like" hard luck old chap" when given "Out" following a gentle clapping of hands. The spirit of the game has now descended to it lowest level, few teams would pass the skulduggery test. Likened to war minus the shooting.The weebix muncher 'Binga' heralded the 'AIR Punching ritual which sadly has been copied by other gormless bowlers, this is usually followed by the hyped up team members leaping on each others backs and patting each others Bums, makes one wonder what goes on in the dressing rooms away from the public eye. The latest news on the test series in India looks grim for the remaining bunch of Ducks. Remember the days when it was a hard slog winning in Australia? But that was when they had their own umpires - mostly crooked. It can only get worse. Today in History.1946.March 13, The Battleship HMS King George V Returns to Portsmouth ENG.

I was an old kid of 19 and eight months. I retired 16-7-66 with all my teeth and no tattoos. oh I forgot, The RN still pay me a pittance.
