It certainly looks like England is doomed if they can't pick up a few quick wickets here.

Last time White was in the team he had turned into a walking wicket so he picked up just where he left off.

Why would you have a scrub fielder like Jimmy Anderson at short midwicket?

The "I have x race friends, and they have never been offended by offensive thing" is something that would be lampooned in a late season simpson episode. It's a pathetic thing to say.

OK say Brendon McCullum is known in the team for loving KFC, is it alright to make jokes about his love of KFC? I would assume you would say yes. If amongst the same group of guys Ross Taylor also loves KFC, there must be no jokes about his love of KFC because Knuc U Knite has racist ideas about Samoans so whoever jokes about Ross is racist?

It's that grey area of intent versus context.

Say a black female tennis player has the impressive musculature of a silver-back gorilla, but if a commentator describes her as such he'll be falling into the morass of societal racism that surrounds black people and sports women in particular. Best for us all if the commentator just shuts his gob lest we drown under 888-screeds from the offended - this is why morons with microphones earn the big bucks as professionals.

Taylor could have a KFC tattoo for all I know, but laughing that the one PI guy on the field must be a fried chicken fiend is always gonna be dumb



tl/dr best commentators don't talk about anything except WASP

Are the NZ Sky commentators worse than ever? yes It's a crying shame more of them can't be removed for max fixing. Even Ian Smith is a fuckwad these days - too much exposure to the cunts who call the rugby. Whoever is providing the Sri Lankan colour commentary is just a whinging little bitch.

I've just had to turn the Sky audio off. On the plus side the endless stream of scrotum and poo jokes on the ACC is pretty solid - even with audio 30 seconds out of sync it's preferable to the double intellects of Squeaky Styris and Simon Drool.

Acc is so loving good.

England are bowling too straight to Smith. I know it looks as if a good straight one would finish him off but I'm pretty sure he walks across to encourage teams to bowl on his stumps because he doesn't do it every time he bats.
