What does everybody think of Geoff Boycott of Channel 4?. I came
across the following post on a FOOTBALL, yes, FOOTBALL board:

What do you expect from a county that produced Geoff Boycott?
Seriousdly, the guy is commentating on Channel 4 cricket and he's the
most arrogant, insulting, ignorant, out of touch pile of sh!t ever. I
hate him. I can listen to Ian Botham, David Gower, and Bob Willis for
hours on Sky but Boycott with his reactionary opinions, his
greater-than-thou attitude to himself and his generation, not to
mention never giving anyone credit, drives me mad.
What right does he have to criticise others? He thjinks because years
ago he was a successful test batsman he can come across as 'the
oracle.' Well to be honest Geoff you should have done us all a favour
and dropped dead. I've never said anything about anyone like that
before but I swear nobody ever deserved cancer as much as he did.
In my opinion Geoff Boycott is a parasitic sick-minded stuff shirt,
the darling of all the fuddy-duddies and MCC types. I'm not
anti-establishment or radical myself but the guy makes Mrs Thatcher
look like an anrachist with his attidutes.
