Vale Bob Appleyard.  If anyone has the time they should read his story.  Endured more tragedy than any person should ever have to and stayed a gentleman to the last. 

 

On the bright side he was a unique pick for me on DDP.

 

He certainly had the measure of Robert Maxwell.

Crowe will be on at least 9 of the top 10 teams in the DDP next year, a lock.

With great sadness I agree. What a batting sensation he was, when he and the great Richard Hadlee wiped condescending smiles from the all-conquering Aussies' faces. The inventor of one of T20's forerunners 'Cricket Max' (look it up, coding's shit on the tablet), he made a huge impact on the game both as a player, and instead of taking the path of administrator, he became a broadcaster who gave us the hit and giggle game purists pretend to dislike.

As much as I hate to say it, sure thing for 2015.

Indeed. One question remains: will he get a DDP approved obit?

I would be surprised if he didn't.

Guardian, Sky and Beeb covered his cancer relapse. Cricket World Cup year in 2015, in his homeland. DDP approved obit a cert.


Cheers. Cricket gets next to no attention in Dutch media, so I had to ask.

I think I've decided on my DDP joker.

Hein
