    Is this a sign of the times ?

    Being the Most Valuable Player in the IPL last year would make him a household name in most English Indian homes.

    It would be a shame to see our national summer sport demoted to a fringe pastime. Ben Stokes regularly features on our local news as he grew up in Cockermouth. I'd be surprised if more than one in ten teenagers know who he is. We probably all knew who Ian Botham was back in the late 70's / early 80's.

    Did they shout something like "That's for bombing my great gran's chip shop in the war"?

    Kids don't play enough communal sports, full stop, but the diminishing popularity of cricket amongst kids isn't a class thing, we either played football or cricket when I was a kid. The sport certainly hasn't become more gentrified, with the likes of Flintoff, Anderson, Stokes, Root and Ali, at a professional level it's hardly the exclusive preserve of public schoolboys and hasn't been for decades.

    Funny, but only in this country could cricket be considered a toffs game.

    .....and you're obviously aware that he picked up a new bat sponsorship with Gunn & Moore a few months after NB dropped him?

    RIP Aretha

    Such sad news. Rest in Peace, Aretha.

    Fines aren't going to hurt millionaire sportsmen. I think the penalties imposed by the sports ruling bodies should be more than enough to deter any wrongdoing, i.e. bring the sport into disrepute and you will never be considered for the national side, ever. Sponsors also need to take action, as do individual clubs.

    Can you remember Botham being charged with assaulting a sailor outside a Scunthorpe nightclub in 1981? It's always going to be a recipe for disaster with high profile sportsmen letting off steam in public places. The sport's governing bodies need to come down hard on anybody bringing their sport into disrepute, regardless of the court verdicts. These are highly paid professionals who have been given the opportunity to represent their country, but are quite happy to put their international careers at risk. Morons.

    Mark Kermode gave it a mention on his Secrets of Cinema show on the horror genre last night on BBC4.

    I used to share one with my cousin. Plenty of room for both of us and the shopping. Feel sorry for my mam having to push it about.

    Took our kids a couple of times in the 90s. Alright for a day out as long as it didn't rain.
