    Cheers for the random pos rep on this thread. Apparently 'I'm hot' but all the posters here are male so I'm getting a bit worried.

    A group of my friends at Uni have ARY for some absolutely bizarre reason! So, I'm going over to theirs at 4.45am to watch it.

    nothing to do with the cricket?! :p:

    yeah...ARY have actually sorted themselves out, and they've got Geoff Boycott and Imran Khan for analysis. Should be good.

    using it as an excuse? I wouldnt go along with that....the bloke is a winner full stop. He just wants to get along with his business, be a professional - its high time the media did the same - half the people writing reports have probably never picked up a tennis racket in their life so they should just stfu.

    I dont despise him - he's a fantastic player, but he might not have got his priorities right.

    having met them both though, I do despise henson - stupid taffy nonce.
    I agree. Saying that, the difference between Healey and Henson is that Healey can at times be funny. Also doesn't always take himself seriously- often makes tongue-in-cheek comments. Henson always sounds like he believes the rubbish he comes out with.

    Actually, after watching the game vs Clermont yesterday, my dad made the interesting comment that Healey might make a good ref once he retires. He'd have a good sense of humour and good rapport with the players. Any thoughts on that?

    On a slightly different topic...is it true that Stephen Jones has signed up for Llanelli?! I'm hoping thats just the papers getting it wrong, I know he'd had offers from various clubs but I was quite suprised at hear that he'd made a definite decision, and going back to Llanelli at that! :confused:

    i dont see why he wouldn't want to go back there - especially since there are people finally pushing for his place and ruddock wants welsh players to play in wales - stupid i know.

    I think healey is more likely to go into managing than reffing - reffing isn't that well paid...

    Hmm..I think Jonesy is being a bit of a fool- he's improved so much over his time in France, and Clermont play much better with him in the side, so it works both ways (plus he'll be getting a higher salary in france no doubt). The welsh players staying in wales is deffo rubbish- they'll be playing a much higher standard of rugby in the premiership or france, and it also gives them a chance to get out of the "goldfish bowl" of south wales rugby. Just look at Gareth Thomas, he's another one who's flourished with club rugby in france. Ah well, what do I know? If he's happier in Llanelli then I guess he should go there, I'm just disappointed he didn't want to stick with france- I love having an excuse to watch them play

    He has the most boring voice in the world! Plus, he doesn't make any sense, and always exaggerates loads, for example he'd start off saying something like 'Someone's going to have to make a big hundred, maybe 150, 200, perhaps 400, 800, so basically if Lara makes 1000 not out, the West Indies have a chance for a draw!' - the guy is an idiot!

    I don't think it was the same day, but the week or something. But I guess that rallying isn't as big as football. Plus Richard Burns wasn't gossip fodder.
    RIP Burnsie.
    No it was the same day, 25th November. It was a shame that such a great sportsman didn't get the acknowledgement that he deserved on his death, all due to him dying a few hours after Georgie

    Couldnt Possibly Agree more >? !

    I mean the guy is so unproffessional !

    My mum could bowl/bat better ! Now the number of times he has said that is remarkable a fan or an ordinary supporter makes such comments not a former player and current commentator !

    Makes you think of his limited use of the English language !

    Boycott is my favourite commentator. I love him because he says it as it is, no beating around the bush. If someone's good, he's good, if he's rubbish, you won't hear Geoffrey saying he's good.
