Re: What are you watching?

Whitechapel is not bad, so long as you can accept the daftness of the premise that there at least four series of murders that imitate grisly historical seril killers.

Re: What annoys people????

Of course, there could be Biblical roots: Revelation 1:7 ‘Look, he is coming with the clouds,’ and ‘every eye will see him, even those who pierced him’; and all peoples on earth ‘will mourn because of him.’ So shall it be!

Re: Ireland ? in New Zealand

Do you actually have to be a Maori to play for the Maoris or will a couple of Ta Moko tattoos and a liking for Kia Ora suffice? You don't have to be Irish to play for Ireland. Yes. Maoris and hobbits are welcome. :thumleft: Bundee Aki playing for Ireland and Shaun Stevenson playing for the Maoris. ...

Re: Next season's Heineken Cup

Many thanks Neill and BR. As clear a summary and rationale as I've ever seen. If I was in control, I'd go for 8 groups of 3 (one URC, one English, one French in each) playing home and away, no seeding (cup competitions are all about the luck of the draw), winners into the quarter finals.

Re: Next season's Heineken Cup

Can somebody help me to understand why we have this convoluted system of matches?
How do they choose who plays who?
What are the advantages of this system?
What's wrong with wee groups of four as before?

Answers on a postcard...

Of course, why didn't I spot it... all comes down to cash. Well, almost all. For me, a match is still a match, 'traning session' or not.

Re: Cricket season

Looks like the serious money in cricket is in India. From Leadersinsport.com : Lalit Modi certainly talked a confident game when I sat down with him in a snazzy London hotel back in 2008 and listened to him lay out, in some detail, his plan for the new city franchise-based cricket league in India.
