I know better from here

Sometimes when I am in the middle of a cricketing discussion which centers around umpiring incompetence, I think of an accusation that philosophers love to level against themselves: "only a philosopher would doubt that" where the "that" refers to some eminently sensible conclusion or belief (say, for instance, the existence of the external world). In the cricketing context, I think that accusation can safely be recast as "Only an umpire would give that (not) out".
