Lyndon Hood - political corrector
Wednesday, December 08, 2004

The term 'political correctness' has become intensely pejorative since it started appearing in dictionaries in the early 90s. It's ironic (as in, /genuinely/ ironic; not like Alanis Morrisette) that things like gender-inclusive language have been widely accepted but the movement responsible is repressed because of the dominant vocabulary.

Max Johns - unwilling alter-ego, the dark mind of Matt Nippert
*Wednesday, December 08, 2004*

So it's looking like rain in Sydney today. Nice. Cricket fans can expect a few showers, which don't sound so bad, and thunderstorms, which do. The second ODI against Australia could well be a non-starter. And to think that Melbourne had the foresight to build a bloody great big roof for the first game. With no reserve day scheduled, that throws a spanner into the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy's debut series.

Hamish McKenzie - former primary school cricketer, Dunedin
Monday, December 06, 2004

There are few more pleasing experiences for a New Zealand cricket fan than to hear the sweet sound of Australian commentators choke on their own words while their beloved team is dispatched by its minnow neighbour. Listening to the commentary on Radio Sport, supplied by Australia's ABC, was in many ways similar to listening to Australia's TV cricket commentators: the boys in gold were legends, indestructible, a pure pleasure to watch.
