It's very typical of internet forums for old members to coalesce into close-knit cabals. Any new entrants to their hallowed ground is met with disdain. Even the most innocent of all comments are met with snide contemptuous remarks - like middle school kids bullying the new boy while their friends egg them on. Of course, they themselves forget of being guilty of even worse imbecility but having been on the forum so long, members become inured. If one of you had started the same thread, I'm pretty sure this will lead to a 10 page thread with each member falling over their feat in fawning adulation. Jeez.

Sorry...guilty as charged NOT here though :). I was just trailing off Lamisa's stream of thought...

But yes wholeheartedly agree about bullying the newly initiated ones. I think most people blindly assume 'opening thread' equates self-congratulation or attention grabbing and is quick to jump on it. Peer pressure- described by Razabda is one thing- but many of us are guilty of hypocrisy and just like bash for bashing.

My request to all is to be tolerant and be more welcoming to the new members for their inputs. '

You cannot expect new members to join and stick through if you dive like a ravenous vulture sniffing the first blood of new thread.
@Doc, Just wanted to give a shout out to making WI4EVER's thread sticky as a nice gesture.

On the topic Morrison is a fantastic guy. Love the enthusiasm he shows. And he seems to be very supportive of our cricket. Same can be said about Symcox.

Cant we get him to do some coaching clinics for our pacers.

Id rather have him teaching the art of 'exciting commentatory' to our low class coms(esp. shamim)

I like both Pat Symcox and Danny. On the other hand, I think Rohan Gavaskar and Arun Lal should not be commentating, they are....lets just say, 'boring' :|

Can't bat, can't bowl, can't field, can't comment. Khali pare television e Hindi bolte, that too after spending so many years in Bengal.

His dad is so much better than him at everything.

Arun Lal is not all that bad. Maybe boring, but he can maintain a neutral stance. He is also enthusiastic about our cricket.

The commentators i hate are Sidhu, Gavaskar, and Ravi Shastri. They are always biased (guess thats what they are paid to do), and are also quite critical of Bangladesh.
