Alternative TV

Nice piece by Tony on AGB regarding the state of cricket TV coverage Down Under.

In case you're wondering, 'Spanky' is ex Somerset skipper Peter Roebuck. Why? Well.... let's just say he spent time as a school teacher, and may have got slightly over-zealous on the 'discipline' front at times.

Mark, this is why we call Roebuck Spanky:

"Roebuck in 2001 was given a suspended jail sentence after admitting caning three young cricketers he had offered to coach."

Ahhh... I stand corrected! I had in mind that he'd actually been a teacher rather than simply on a coaching assignment.

My bad.
