    .. has become really batting friendly in the last few weeks. I think the main cause of this was the hints/instructions in the sign-up thread until recently discouraging people signing up as a bowlers. It's meant most of the new signups have been batting-based so we have an ALC full of really promising batsmen on the up and has been bowlers. As the season has progressed these promising young batsmen have improved and the competition has got more and more batting friendly, which the established bowlers have either stagnated or become worse.

    Interesting trend; just thought I'd point it out.

    The Knights are the ALC.
  3. Mousey AJ Son

    Diggler and Harps would be about the only decent bowlers rolling around there these days

    Season 8 Knights > All other Knights. Combined

    Hmmm yes, both the Asians and the Stickies need some young promising bowlers (much more than batsmen). I'm sure that's the case with most of the clubs and provinces, although maybe to a lesser extent.

    Well, the up-and-coming ones who will improve as the new batsmen improve, anyway. Farny, Denton, Bullpitt etc are probably still better than them at the moment.

    Need to be getting more people to sign up as bowlers.

    Season 12 Knights could give them a seriously good run for their money IMO.

    I'm tearing ALC apart.

    I kinda noticed the trend, but was too lazy to look up the details to verify it.

    Veza's alright.
  13. Steeley J Steele

    This. Next year is our year IMO.

    It's the amount of shunt bowlers that's the problem, not the amount of bowlers.

    It's the same in first grade too.
  15. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Then next season, the opposite will happen. :p

    Need to just stop telling people what to sign up as, I reckon.

    This thread is depressing tstl.

    Not a fucking shit show

    I think the main cause is all the boys on here have alot more free time now that it's winter and there's less social interactions/gatherings to attend.
