Almanac Cricket: Big Bash Parts One and Two

Big Bash parts one and two. Rock ’n roll… rock ’n roll by Les Everett

About Les Everett

A Footy Almanac veteran, Les Everett is the author of Gravel Rash: 100 Years of Goldfields Football and Fremantle Dockers: An Illustrated History. He is the WAFL correspondent and uses the money he makes from that role to pay for his expensive websites and and fund the extravagant Vin Maskell at


  1. I agree with everything Les says (a phrase not to be repeated between March and September).
    I would add that the BBL players seem to be having fun and enjoying playing the game. Test cricketers don’t smile. They smirk and gloat.
    I enjoy the cosmopolitan cameraderie between players in a BBL franchise. Temporary alliances under a brand name pursuing a common purpose. Much like AFL.
    I enjoy listening to Gerard and Alison Mitchell and Dirk Nannes muse about Test cricket. Something to stimulate the neurones while gardening and performing other menial chores. But as for sitting down to watch it??? Get a life.
    Now Les, will I be allowed into AFLW games (have you seen those Victorian scum calling it WAFL?) wearing my blue and gold? Cosmopolitan cameraderie?

  2. Over my dead body Peter B. Colour up or bugger orff *insert anchor symbol*

  3. Caution please Peter; Victorian scum .

    That language reminds me of the ‘great Westrlain creation of the 1930’s, the Dominion League.

    We all know how much success they had.


  4. Tell the Age to stop using WAFL for Women’s Footy in their headlines; then I’ll stop slagging the “divine right of kings” theft of anything of value from the smaller states. Think Grand Prix; GST revenue; Barry Cable and Malcolm Blight.

  5. Mick Jeffrey says

    The incessant jibbering which achieves as much as playing roller hockey without skates or blades, it means the likes of James Sherry are on a par for me with Donald Trump, someone we can probably do without in a public sense. You won’t find me watching a game of 20 over stuff, far too predictable in the outcome. If the team batting first doesn’t score between 140-180 then 9 out of 10 times they’ll lose.
