The Observant Fool

Indian test victories are extremely fecund when it comes to producing idiots. For no sooner do they happen that a few dozen spring to life, looking for the nearest holding pen. Our latest exhibit is Will Buckley of the Observer who speaking of the Indian pace attack, which dismissed the world's strongest side at Perth, writes:
The Australians had crumbled. Confused by dibble-dobble seamers who were neither one thing nor the other.
Tell you what, Will old chap. Why don't you strap on your pads, grab a bat, slip on a helmet. Irfan, Ishant and Rudra will gladly dibble you till you're dobbled and looking like Ricky Ponting's hipbone.

:o) :o) I wish. Fat chance, though. I don't think this guy would know a cricket bat if it mysteriously appeared out of his nether regions.

I really bugs me that so many so-called "sports writers" (and here's a prime example) have never been anywhere near a sports arena of any sort. Sure, every sports journalist can’t be an ex First Grade player, but “Senior Sports Writer??

Bwyan,

It'd be nice if they could just stop being so patronizing.
