    So what. It isn’t the end of the world. The Phoenix lost the other night as well. Big deal.

    The only problem with international Softball is that it’s a very poor cousin to Baseball. Dont get wrong I love Softball & have played it all my life but it’s a social game, baseball is the professional game.

    What a load of pure and utter crap!

    NZ has been thrashed in four of the last five (incl. SA) opening away tests. In the fifth they won both the first and last test. ;-)

    In two of those five series they have come back and won the second test, drawing the series.

    That’s three out of four away series they have won or drawn – not a bad record indeed.

    In the current series they haven’t had time to win the second test – yet.

    Correction; five out of six and three out of five.

    I think the graphic is apt.

    The Black Caps, with their cocky new captain, talked themselves up a storm going into this test match. They got bundled out for 45 then slaughtered inside three days…

    Train wreck indeed.

    They’ve changed the players, changed the coaches, they’ve dropped Jessie the drunk, they’ve changed and shafted the previous captain.. and still their an international cricketing joke. What’s left to change? Ahh.. all those old farts from the 70’s and 80’s…..the administrators.

    As our national cricket team, I love the Black Caps dearly but it’s pretty hard to see past such a slaughtering at the hands of SA

    We should not be hard on the players, we might hurt their feelings and then they will be traumatised. Then their mums will start up with the womens magazines about how they niss them soooo much.
    Then the fucking hairdressers will start up about not getting paid, and what about the tailors who make those pants fit soooo good?
    Profesionails are going to lose out as well if our lovely boys hands don’t look good.

    What a bunch of big girls blouses. Take your Silver Fern off girls, you don’t deserve it

    It’s obvious you hate all NZ sporting teams (I assume you’re a bitter Scotsman?) and I was as disgusted as the next guy by the performance in the first test. But can you link to some quotes of McCullum talking himself and the team up? The usual “we feel confident, good feeling in the team” etc quotes are not acceptable.
