    I'd challenge the first bit with two words, "Dirk" and "Nannes"

    The second is fair as a listener but probably a disincentive as a sporting body

    Far fewer dickheads on the ABC cricket coverage and it's much more in tune with the game itself, ie mostly relaxed. The MMM coverage has a bunch of loudmouths who seem to be trying to big up the game and crack locker room jokes.

    Mostly relaxed = send virtually everyone to sleep.

    Cricket is at a crossroads. Test cricket is an irrelevance and the game is struggling overall. If they are serious about remaining a viable commodity, then moving on from some of the boring antiquated aspects isn't really a bad thing.

    Better to upset a few nostalgic traditionalists than continue to alienate a large percentage of the population.

    well as I said in the cricket forum, way too many unanswered questions here

    that article does not say why the ABC is being excluded

    it also doesn't address how Crocmedia will be able to provide coverage in regional Australia where the ABC already provides coverage and Crocmedia currently doesn't

    methinks something stinks here

    Croc may outbid the ABC but a lot of regional listeners may miss out here and I dont see this as being in CAs best interest but hey, Sutherland does shit like this

    I'm talking about the which coverage I prefer. You're talking about the future of cricket. Test cricket on the radio is a background thing, and I prefer the way the ABC does it.

    I think this has a dramatic influence on the broadcasting of cricket

    I agree.
    Although I'm not sure I agree on the Reynolds bit.

    There is a one day match vs England on Sat night at 7pm.

    The same time as the Socceroos match.
