Typical English media self-gratification?

There's so much of it that happened thru out the WC that its getting too
damn boring. They are portraying that England single handedly kept this
WC interesting...as if their inconsistency was the only thing that made
this WC worth watching and was responsible for making even other games
not involving England more interesting to follow - the results of them
at least.

I mean come on...England was just as responsible for the way things
turned out as were WI, Ireland, and Bangladesh in group B. I don't see
the caribbean media go gaga of WI's inconsistency making the WC so
interesting. Neither did we noticed anything like that from Bangles
faction of the media.

And enough of the long itinerary already! ***y hell Australia had the
same itinerary....if anything they had it slightly tougher coz they
played India at home before the Ashes. You didnt hear the Aussies
complaining about fatigue. SA and India had similarly long seasons...so
did NZ.

may i suggest that you don't read the english media, then?
if one is aggravated by something that one can not control, then that
one would be well advised to avoid repeat behaviour.

the scheduling WAS beyond a joke, which obviously can not be debated.
