    Your Non-football sporting hero?

    We were discussing at work our sporting heroes and it was pretty much all footballers and from the clubs we support, which was a bit boring and predictable.

    The state of policing

    100 ball cricket

    I assume most cricket fans on here have seen these latest proposals from the ECB. Thoughts? https://www.ecb.co.uk/news/668162/ecb-presents-100-ball-domestic-game-for-men-and-women I'm all for thinking of new ways to get people in to cricket, but can't see that shaving 20 balls off an innings...

    My friendly invasion Many years ago, in fact it was 23rd July 1985 I was lounging in the sunshine in Southchurch Park in Southend it was a Sunday.

    If you are fortunate to be season ticket holder then you will also have had 3 free guest passes to be used in home games of choice. However there is small print, in that the final game, (Bris R) is NOT included in the deal: so MK is the LAST opportunity to avail yourself of this ST bonus. It is...

    Away fans treatment

    Is it just me (quite likely) or is anyone else a tad miffed about how away supporters are generally treated as second-class?
