There you go I said ignorant and you couldn't resist providing a
personal example. Thanks for that. Of course stem cell research may at
some time in the future provide umpires with an extra pair of eyes and
this would help them cope. *** you really are a total fool. If you
knew anything at all you would know that umpires are already leaving
the game in droves.
The umpire is not required to call dead ball if the bails come off at
the bowlers end. He simply allows play to continue and the game will
take it's course. Unless Finn knocks off the bails, then he can call
no ball and wonder why the ***!
