The best Crows team that never was

While watching the cricket on Saturday night I was reminded of what a fine competitor the Windies captain Jason Holder is. No fuss, no bother; just gets on with the game with little histrionics.


Thank heavens we have the cricket to watch with the footy. To me, it’s not offering much excitement at all.


As we are isolated in Victoria I thought it was time for a pay-back to the Crow-eaters who have been crowing as they gather in their murderous ways.


Time has allowed me to pick the best Adelaide Crows side there never was and I have named them the A.O.B’S.


Cricket continues to be absorbing with this new look Windies side looking like there will be a rise in the fortunes of that team in the future.
