just came here to post this as well.

Sad day for cricket, he'll be missed in the comm box....

There will be some form of tribute at the Sydney test no doubt, I'd say Channel 9 will put together a highlights package of his career

Gee Greggy gone.
Heart Attack.

yeah grew up listening to Grieg, Benaud and Lawry.

Apparently when they are in other Cities Grieg always drives the rental car and picks Chappelli and Lawry up to drive them to the ground from the Hotels.
Must have been fun to listen to those 3 going on.

Well, 9 needs to get a new Pommy.
David Lloyd is pretty good.

I guess this means Marc Dikoless is going to be the only Pommy and we are going to have to endure endless rants from him.

RIP Tony

Never a great Cricketer but a very good Captain.
Was one of the first truly professional County players.

I guess they will retire his Key ?

R.I.P. Greggy.

I thought Richie would be the first of the old team to go.

Hussey refused to reveal who he had chosen as his replacement as the team song leader. "I have made up my mind and I haven’t told him officially yet, I want to keep it to myself until I have spoken to him," he said.


So who do we all think? Will have to be someone fairly secure in their position i would think.

Good on ya Hussey, hes going out on top.
Hussey was a Matchwinner on many occasions.
No more Dads Army players.

Well all the old guys are gone now.
Cant wait for the Ashes Tests IN HD WOOO HOOO

(It was Benaud not Lawry that Grieg would drive to the game)

Oh crap. I really will miss Tony Greig calling the games.

And wow to Hussey calling it quits. I also would have liked him in the ashes side.

I don't think the heyday of Cricket is going away. The days of utter Aussie domination are over but this new team is developing well.

RIP Greig, this time last year I would have out 20 bucks on him vs Benaud.
