It’s quiet out there

Hey folks – just to let you know that we’re still alive, even if there’s very little going on at this deadest time of year.

Things will start up again next week, when we’ll pick up where we left off and start digging for fresh news, but for now, do use this thread in case a bit of general holiday “discussion” (or kakpraat as our Afrikaans friends would say) takes your fancy.

Hope you all had a good Christmas! Let us know what Santa brought you.

Also, any particularly big plans (or dare I say “resolutions”) lined up for 2014? How about anything new or different you’d like to see us do here on Sharksworld next year?

Don’t be shy – let us know what’s going on as 2013 draws to a close.

  • What’s up with Matfield’s selection for the game? 🙄

  • Talkin about cricket… It was a very sad weekend for me this past weekend… I am a dolphins supporter, but one of my idols has or is busy leaving the game today…
    Cricket will never be the same again!

  • @R Hayward (Comment 5) : With HM at the helm, I suppose Matfield’s automatic inclusion in the Bok team 2014 is a foregone conclusion.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 7) : lol! I’m afraid yes… Really kak news for GREAT youngsters like PSDT.

  • Who else is at work having fokkol to do? I just run maintenance on customers and check the cricket.

  • @R Hayward (Comment 6) : It’s sad to see Kallis go, but he’s leaving the game on his terms…..

    Let’s hope he sticks to his decision to retire, it’s always sad to see a legend of sport retire and then fail miserably to make a successful comeback (Schumacher comes to mind, and after 2014 Matfield will also stand proudly next to old Schumi 😆 )

  • @MysticShark (Comment 9) : I was initially upset at Lambie’s exclusion from the team, but I think he needs time away from the spotlight and insane amount of pressure that he’s been under.

  • Comment 13, posted at 30.12.13 11:24:28 by FireTheLooser Reply

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 11) : Speaking of Schumi, I see he is in a coma in hospital after a skiing accident.

  • @R Hayward (Comment 17) : Roll on the ozzies, at least they’re not scared of the tech available.

    Do you know whether we’ll have hotspot for the ozzie series?

  • Comment 19, posted at 30.12.13 15:30:31 by FireTheLooser Reply

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 19) : Yes Hotspot i’m not too sure of but at least the review system is in play. India is the only test country as far as I know that do not want to use the review system.

  • A Test win which I though was impossible teen saterdag en…..

  • Comment 21, posted at 30.12.13 15:37:18 by R Hayward Reply

  • Ah Jacques Kallis – a legend and the greatest all-rounder the game has ever seen.

    I remember watching his WP debut – sat on the grass banks talking to his little sister!

    He will be sorely missed. Good on him to hang up his boots while on top. Its something neither Sachin nor Ponting was able to do.

  • @R Hayward (Comment 20) :

    That might change after this series!

    Although we’d’ve likely won the first test were it not for that iffy JK decision.

  • Been reading the Boucher book – geez what a knob Cullinan is!
    And then his comments about JK just confirm it!

  • Comment 24, posted at 30.12.13 17:32:09 by VinChainSaw Reply
  • Sorta wish JK had stayed on for the Ozzie series.

  • @VinChainSaw (Comment 25) : JA me too, BUT BRING ON THE AUSIES!!!

  • Comment 26, posted at 30.12.13 17:57:51 by R Hayward Reply

  • @VinChainSaw (Comment 24) : One could have a whole thread discussing Cullinan’s arrogant, selfish, me-before-the-team attitude.

    Even Gibbs had a piece in his book about Cullinan’s foul character. Shortly afterwards he was removed from Supersport (not sure if it was related), now on espn’s cricket show (who in their right mind watches anything sport related on espn? 😈 ).

  • REALLY!!!!!!! What is the point of bringing Matfield back??????? Can anybody tell me if they agree with this madness? He probably wants to get more caps than John Smit!

  • @Rob: for 2014…

    I know there is a lot of forums and foundations out there, but is there anything we can do to raise funds or help somewhere for the fight against rhino poaching? The stats are shocking, 961 this year vs 668 last year!
