Default Goodbye Taufel

Simon Taufel to retire.

Why is no one talking about this? That's a HUGE loss! Please save us from Ashokas.

I read that earlier today. There might be many arguments over who is the best batsmen or the best bowler since the turn of the century, but there is little argument over who is the best umpire. (And the ICC awards testify as much)

Triple winner and reigning champ Aleem Dar would disagree.

Of course Taufel won the 1st 5 awards...so he is in 'historical' terms the better ump, but Dar I think has usurped him the last couple of years.

Very good ump who made the tough decisions, got them right...and was respected by all, unlike say Daryl Harper or Darrell Hair

He clearly raised the bar for other umpires. He was very friendly yet very strict in his decision. That's why all loved him.

Wish him all the best for his future endeavors.

He was one of my favourite umpires! And the best in the business. He will be missed.

True, nowadays Alem Dar is better. I think Dar has more character than Taufel. Taufel seems a bit dull.

No one can beat 'Asad Rouf' in terms of colorful character. Recently he was on the newspaper for his off field act

Alem Dar is sometimes more accurate than hotspot/snikko. During WC2011 barely any of his call got over turned by UDRS.

No one comes close to him as the best umpire IMO. Perhaps, Aleem Dar at best.

A loss for us, Bangladeshis.

Daryl Harper's tribute.

Quote:
Hats off to Taufel

He may have wanted to keep his cap on at all times, but the world cricket community is united in doffing its collective headgear to one of the finest umpires of them all
Daryl Harper
October 6, 2012



A basic tenet in cricket is about respecting and agreeing with the umpire's decision. In the case of Simon Taufel, players generally agree with him on almost every occasion. They accept his decisions because a very good percentage of them are correct - and this has been mostly also validated by technology. But that is only part of the reason.

A lot of that respect comes because Simon has a measured and methodical way of dealing with people. He generally ensures that he keeps emotion out of the discussion - not easy to do in the middle of a Test match when something is going on and you are not happy about it. Simon has usually been able to satisfy both sides if there is an incident, and people have been confident in his ability to keep doing that. Personally, I was more emotional in contrast. That is a major difference when it comes to gaining respect from players and coaches. Simon knows when to talk and when to keep quiet.

With the introduction of DRS I think the on-field umpires can't be judged any more as the decisions are made by flicking through video frames although they do play a part in caught behind decisions. Even then they can be challenged. If any thing, credits should go to the third umpire. Some of the reviewed decisions are touch-and-go. With that being said, it is of course good for the game because the decisions are now lot fairer and clearer.

I always thought Simon Taufel is a good umpire. Thank God he's not calling it quits at similar age as Bucknell.

^ That's not true. Because on-field umps still have make the decisions first. And then the teams will decide if they want to use DRS or not. If anything DRS will help us judge the umps better. We'll get to see how horrible/good decision makers they are "by flicking through video frames."

It was awesome when Dar and Taufel umpired together. They were the 3rd team on the field. All the players would be going nuts, calling for DRS and both of those 2 would have the last laugh with the DRS. And not to mention the competition between themselves.

Sure they have to make the decisions first but their decisions can be overturned. Back in the days whatever they decided would hold to be true even the run outs. Without the video frames you can truly judge how well they are doing on the field with their naked eyes. We could only tell how much of an arse they made of themselves only after they showed the replay either in the news or during the game voiced over by the commentators comments. You could pass a judgment on their on-field work. That's history now.

These days, they have very little control over major decisions. Run outs, LBW, caught-behind and all are reviewed despite umpire's initial decisions. Their roles have been limited to watching for no balls and in effect house-keeping on the field. Much of their work, for which I can either applaud him or throw a shoe at him, have been taken away from them. So I cant really point my fingers at them anymore. Don't get me wrong. We can get the fairest decisions which is good for the game. But when it comes reviewing their performance on field I can't really say he did well because the decisions that can either be a pivotal one is now passed to third umpire.

I don't think you get what I was trying to say. DRS helps us judge the umpires better. When a decision gets overturned via DRS you can see the mistakes they make, as well as the good decisions they make. You can often hear the commies praising the Ump after judging their calls through tech. such as the eagle eye or w/e, the hot spot.

And today umpiring has a harder job than they did back then. They have to match the technology. Their mistakes get shown on the big screens in front of the crowd. Guys like Buckner etc got away with it in the past. Now they can't.
