South Africans - A big bunch of whiners

The RSA - Ind Series had a significant number of
umpiring decisions that went against India including the
last test where all tactics were used to delay the game after rain.

When Indian fans complained about it "current big bunch of whiner"
posted articles indicating we were finding reasons.  

HA! HA! HA!; It is our turn to take revenge for
player' writing stupid articles about India, RSA player'
being arrogant and using even the match referee to
penalize Indians and leave RSA alone.

In spite of Ind-Pak being cricketing foes, I am
looking forward for RSA to tour Pak and hope Pak
prepares green top wickets and hope to see
Waqar and co rip apart the RSA team.

Seeing RSA's performance against AUS, I realized something.

Indians are called Tigers at home, chickens abroad.
RSA should be call Tigers against Indians, chickens
against PAK and AUS. Just kidding, dear S/A fans. :)
I will be the first Indian to admit, that RSA is a
superb, just superb cricketing side and they are still
#2 IMO.

I don't know if and when RSA will tour Pak. I wouldn't bet my money
on RSA any more now that they are back down to earth! :-)

Still, Hansie and company are good cricketers, as long as
they don't use sledging and name-calling tactics.

Regards,
Gentleman.

OK guys, time out! I have been following these threads rather closely
and time and again SA fans have clearly mentioned that they are NOT
blaming Venkat for their loss (Heck, they got so badly whacked in the
first test too, even w/o Venkat). But all they seem to be doing is
pointing out some blatant errors Venkat allegedly made (NB: I didnt see
the match myself so i cant comment on the umpiring quality or lack
thereof).

Also as Rick Eyre pointed out, the SABC was so intent on focussing on
the bowlers' front foot, that ALL OF A SUDDEN everybody seems to be
talking about umpires inability to watch for no-balls. God knows how
many other good umps. (Bird, Shephard etc) also missed them...

So it is time we Indian fans respond to these post a with a little more
objectivity.

Of course, i am still pissed at the lack of official SA response towards
Donald-Dravid incident. Now thats a different story...

Cheers
