King Cricket - new rating system explained
After going throught the emotional mincer over the weekend, we have decided to simplify things. From now on, we will be either 'angry' or 'amazed' at every cricketing event. There are no other options.
The credit for this complex rating system should go to the UK's Channel 4. During David Blaine's interminable stunt where he hung in a box over the Thames, viewers were asked to vote through their remote control as to how they felt about it. The options were (a) angry or (b) amazed.
We tried to hammer in 'nonplussed' in the form of binary code, but only succeeding in switching to BBC1 which was pretty much the best result we could have hoped for.
Hopefully we'll have more success applying this system to cricket.
