Its almost 2012 and what a sporting year it has been! Here is the best and most in depth sports review you will read for 2011….. Enjoy!

Football/soccer – Spain won everything and the best player in the world is an Argentine – go figure! Bafana Bafana (SA national football team) – well at least we know they can dance!
Rugby – it was the ref’s fault!
Tennis – Nadal, Federer and Djokovic play rock, paper, scissors to decide who’s winning each tournament!
NBA – what NBA? … Okay, the Mavs did finally win!
Golf – without that red golf T-shirt on a sunday…….
F1 – please let me know if it still exists!
Synchronized swimming – sorry, my bad forgot this is a SPORTS review for a second!
Cricket – finally the Aussies don’t look invincible anymore!! I don’t like the state of Test cricket at the moment (too much T20 for my liking!)

So there you have it – it doesn’t get as in depth, analytical and call it like u see it as that!!

If I didn’t mention your favorite sport, hey I’m sure ESPN will have something to say about it!

ThatmanRuss and the team thanks you for reading and following eheheheh this year and look out for many more sport related articles in the new year!

SA vs Aus Crazy Test!

The 11/11/11 saw one of the most interesting games of test cricket take place!
The 2nd day of the first test match at Newlands in this series had over 20 wickets fall. All 4 innings in one day is something I’ve never seen before!
In a nutshell from somebody that enjoys playing cricket and watching it and especially Test cricket (which is the purist form of the game) – this was the worst game of test cricket (from 2 top teams) I’ve EVER seen!!

Why?? I’m glad you ask! Test cricket is about application, patience, the battle of the mind, batsmen vs bowler, and so much more! I saw very little of any of that!
Teams play session by session and battle to win each session! The fact that Michael Clarke scored a century on the first day proved that by applying yourself it was fine to bat on! I hope I never see a match like that ever again!

I’m glad SA won but we must not get too excited and forget that we were also whittled out for 90 odd runs!

Me thinks too much 20/20 cricket is not a good thing!

the grass is always greener on the welded side

The great debate continues – to use technology in sport (or more technology in some instances) or not to?
An umpire gives a batsmen out, whose going through a rough patch and his international career ends because of a bad/wrong decision (that refers to cricket for my US friends :).
A ref makes a bad call (or in the case of Mr Bryce Lawrence – 223 bad/wrong/horrendous/daft/questionable/entirely contrary to the rules/stupid/downright incompetent/where in the world did this guy get trained because he had no idea what he was doing, calls) and a nations hopes of winning the rugby world cup come to an abrupt halt!
The previous sentence is in no way directed at Mr Lawrence but is merely an example that I decided to use to make a point – I’m sure Mr Lawrence’s best years of refereeing are still ahead of him because clearly its not behind him!
Okay now that that’s off my chest let me get into this. I have always been for less use of technology than more. However when you look at all that is invested into sport these days from players careers, to the money investors lay out and the emotions of rugby fans who felt they were cheated out of winning a world cup because some New Zealander had his eyes closed all game……. Okay Thatman take it easy!!! I have come to the conclusion that the technology is there, so use it. Purists will argue (and I was one of them) that it will slow down the game and take away from the traditions of the sports and the intrigue of waiting for a human umpire to give you out when you clearly didn’t nick the ball – I say if humans are getting it wrong more and more these days and with so much at stake, then there is no other alternative than to make more use of Hawkeye, goal line tecnology, 3rd umpires and other technology out there!
I’d rather have the right decision and add a few minutes to the game than a wrong one that decides the outcome of an important game.

ThatManRuss would like to add that he holds no grudge against Mr Lawrence and wishes him nothing more than for him to never officiate another Springbok game in his life!!!

How is the server issue affecting you?

With the 2nd time BB servers are down in the past two days and tensions are running high. Im positively amazed at how much our lives revolve these devices. From businesses to hardcore (even mild) social lives are all being affected this.

As for RIM themselves, in such a competitive market, being on top of your game is vital, to your company’s growth. The Market share has already dropped in just a day. The fact that a great deal of people can almost immediately get a smartphone, that is not prone to this sort of thing is not helping

Best of Luck to RIM for sorting out this issue,  and swift recovery in the market.

 

 

Are you being tormented or enjoying the quiet time provided by the server failure RIM is experiencing? let us know

Personally I do not blame for this issue at all, I find it a lot easier to continue to Bryce Lawrence for any issues experienced anywhere on the Planet right now.

 

Just because Im amazing.

The 2011 Rugby World Cup actually starts this Sat the 8 Oct 2011 with Ireland vs Wales and England vs France.
The last few weeks has been an elaborate hoax convincing people that countries like Romania, Namibia, USA, Japan, and Scotland :), can actually play the 15 man game!
The IRB should be applauded for actually keeping it going for so long!

ThatManRuss is of the opinion that the top 8 countries should compete against each other every 4 years in whatever format they can come up with and crown the winning team!

I feel the same way about the Cricket World Cup but more so for the game of Rugby.

Most of u will probably disagree but deeeep down I know you agree with me!

Can the Bokke (South Africa) repeat or will the mighty All Blacks (NZ) finally turn form into being World Cup winners……… We will soon find out!

As for me I’m just glad the minnows are done being embarrassed!!
