    Watch it again mate, the ball goes one way then the other - had to be an edge before the pad!

    That pissed me right off yesterday. Impossible to miss. That cunt Dar got most of the difficult ones right, the Trott ball he initially gave not out, all the lbw's that just go past the wicket he got right and then misses that edge. Fuck off. You could see real time that Broad hit it, how that evades Dar is beyond me.

    England is gonna win this unless the Aussies get 2 quick wickets and send Bell home.

    I still think umpires have a tough job. Ball going at 90mph. Not easy to see if its lbw or definitely hit bat
    Although Broads was rather obvious!

    I hate umpiring when I play at weekends.

    First checking whether it's a no ball, then seeing if it pitches in line, then if it's going to go on and hit the stumps, in the case of lbw.

    It's a tough job but that is actually his job, he's a pro and he's been doing it for years. Should never miss that.

    Not a good start for the Aussies. Needed that wicket but Clarke and Watson snoozed

    Ditto! Played from the age of 7/8 until my mid twenties (the club folded - quite enjoyed having weekends to myself so never joined another team) and in our league the batting team also had to umpire......... i'm honest to say i made the odd fuck-up but generally did ok. Umpires have the toughest job in cricket though, they have to concentrate for every second of the match! Fuck being a test match umpire

    Boycott on TMS this morning. Must have been reading this thread as he has slightly changed his stance.

    "There is no debate, it's quite simple. The Australians I have played with and have watched, with the exception of Adam Gilchrist, believe in standing and it's up to the umpire to give you out - there shouldn't be a moral argument. They should be upset, disappointed and angered by the umpires. If they keep making poor decisions, it's up to the ICC to do something about it."

    Shane Warne has been laying into Dar on Twitter, saying he's always been shite.
    Dar has generally been good I thought, but is probably feeling the heat from that Broad decision.

    Good start from the Aussies, 0/69 chasing 311.

    Typical Watson...
    Out LBW, proven irrefutably by technology, yet he thinks he was robbed.
    Wasted a review too, the dick

    Another typical Watson innings indeed. Hardly ever goes on to make a big score. Gets himself in and then invariably falls lbw.

    Out of twenty something times he's reached 50, he has only gone on to make 2 hundreds.

    Also don't start with all this umpire bollocks. Agar should have been out in ur first innings for a shit score. If that was the case you wouldn't have got anywhere near winning this test match. Not to mention the dismissal of Trott.

    Clarke very gracious in defeat. Admitted he used the review system poorly throughout the test and was proud of how his team played

    What a guy

    There were bad calls both ways but none decided the game the way that last one did. Who would want such a match to end in such doubtful fashion? Only the ones who were shitting their pants.

    Funny how you mention the Aussie doubtful calls in your post but leave out the most blatant bad decision there was with Broad not being called out...

    Umpiring was shocking all the way through on both sides.

    Like i said Pat, if Agar was given out in the first innings Australia were finished. You would have been all out for around 110 and there wouldn't have even been a day 5.

    And this wasn't a bad call. He was out

    You think just because it was doubtful they should play on just to make the match a bit more exciting?

    If a decision is doubtful, the ruling on the field stands. It's the same with doubtful lbw calls that may or may not have clipped the wicket, coys. Umpire's call.

    It's ridiculous deciding against the umpire on the field in 50-50 situations such as this and the Trott dismissal.

    They let the umpires make a major howler with Broad and nothing gets corrected but overturn the doubtful 50-50 situation. Useless. The system should work exactly the other way. Correct the umpire when he makes a howler and leave the 50-50 stuff.
