Andrew Symonds: Former Australia cricketer dies aged 46 in car crash

Former Australia cricketer Andrew Symonds has died aged 46 after being involved in a car crash.

The all-rounder played 26 Tests, 198 one-day internationals and 14 Twenty20s for Australia between 1998 and 2009.

A powerful batter, canny bowler and fine fielder, Symonds was part of two 50-over World Cup wins and Australia's Ashes victory over England in 2006-07.

Born in Birmingham, Symonds played county cricket in the UK for Kent, Gloucestershire, Lancashire and Surrey.

He held the joint-record for most sixes hit in a County Championship innings - he hit 16 in a knock for Gloucestershire against Glamorgan in 1995 - until Ben Stokes bettered his total last week.

His death is another significant loss for Australian cricket, following the deaths of former wicketkeeper Rod Marsh and legendary spinner Shane Warne earlier this year.

RIP Dorian Gray, anyone have him? In this ghoulish competition. Results pending with regards to the Dorian fella but with a name like that one would want to be on the other side.

This is the Deadpool 2022 not 1422.

Vangelis has swapped his chariot of fire for Charon's boat across the Styx. Dead at 79.

 

The theme from 1492: Conquest of Paradise is another great tune. As is 'Pulstar'.

    • A mix of massive disappointment and pain that they try and mask but end up overcompensating for massively with all their shite like 'born not manufactured' 'we go the game' blah blah blah....   This leads to them feeling they have to show that they somehow care more about their club and are somehow special/more passionate - but because they are so hurt and disappointed they can't help but release all those feelings of disappointment with displays of anger like that, like that fella who was throwing punches at players whilst holding his kid...like the abusing of opposition players...like throwing stuff at players.   It is like how someone who is pissed off with their own life and who has low self esteem - slags everyone and everything else off, criticises everybody else, begrudges everyone else any joy and feels the need to try and belittle others in a futile attempt to make themselves feel better/superior.   Ultimately though their own disappointment and hurt eats away at them, and they just resort to more and more displays of anger, blaming everyone else and slagging everyone else - then they justify it by claiming everyone else is against them and all they are doing is fighting back/dealing with injustice....but it's all a front - it is ALL their own unhappiness, disappointment and hurt and it nakes them bitter and twisted.
    • The penalties will be hand waved away, they are never enforced by a league that is built and operates on financial corruption, they will carry on cheating unopposed make no mistake about that.
    • When they last avoided relegation in '98 I think it was a Kenwright inspired headline in the Echo that screamed 'NEVER AGAIN!'. I reckon next year it will happen ....AGAIN! They are truly fucking awful  and can only get worse as players leave and their transfer options are limited by penalties for their own sportswashing. Tonight is merely a stay of execution.
    • Derby these days essentially consists of them being applauded for trying to cripple our players and timewasting, followed by a flurry of Qannon style conspiracy theories about why that somehow didn't result in a win.
    • Looking at the crowd on the pitch, the vast, vast majority of them look like footage from a Ring doorbell.
