Javelin should be banned. Along with darts, any sport when a pointy things needed

Told you in the other thread that sports should be banned.
One year I got a bike for my birthday. So I went peddling off down the road and knocked an old lady down.
'Can't you ring your bell?' She said. 'I can ring my bell,' I said 'But I can't ride my bike'

getting into bed with the nfl they are buying months of live sports as opposed to a week and a weekend i suppose.

that said it couldnt have cost much to put the masters on,cheap space filler and decent viewing figures.

Never saw that coming Freddie Flintoff is trying his hand at boxing :?

And there was me thinking he might start commentating on the darts as a position has become vacant recently :D

Oche, what do Lancashire have to win by to stay up?

EDIT;

Think I've found it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/County_Cha ... nts_system

8 points for the tie (they're not going to win).

3pts for bowling them out.

5pts for making 400+ (on 380 now)

Surrey on 111.00 and in the hunt for a win.

Lancs on 94.00 completely fooked and it's going to take a minor miracle for them to stay up. Oh well.

Aye, been OT quite a few times to watch them so I have a soft spot for them.

they are 16 points behind the team above them, would need a healthy win/bonus points you imagine.

Think they're down mate. Middlesex will bat out for a draw tomorrow and Surrey have a chance of a win. They use the flat wicket at lords for the league matches. Why? Use the test one and try and get a result-it's a day less ffs.

how many pitches do they have at lords?

they would use the one that best suits there needs for the game presumably.

Two, I think. They use one for International matches and the other for county.
