Cricket Australia doing this is a disgrace. There's a trove of hidden gold sitting in the archives that they and their commercial partners keep locked away. It's thanks to Rob recording games onto VHS for forty years and sharing them online for free that the younger generation gets to learn about the game's past, and the older generation (including ex players) can relive fond memories.

Hoping this paves the way for more collaboration between robelinda2 and CA. He's one million times the custodian of footage as the official channel which slaps shitty music over the highlights and doesn't seem to get that starting a delivery from when the ball leaves the bowlers hand makes it impossible to appreciate a cricket highlight.

My parents' neighbour does a similar job for an AFL club. It's highly controlled, fits in with a highly developed marketing strategy, and the numbers they get on what is generally pretty dull content shows ridiculously high engagement.

So considering he's doing it for free, they don't need to bring him inside the tent, plus I can't see he'd want to fit in with their constraints.

I'd like to see him get access to higher quality footage and more recent footage without having to worry about the legal iron fist coming down on him. Agree I wouldn't want to see him to actually come under their umbrella and get sanitized.

can we update the topic title, Bareth Garry ?

what I'd love to know is how much footage from 80s/90s (and prior) of cricket has been saved, and is it just the 1 hour highlights packages they used to air at late nights?

Just watching that Marshall video. I loved Benaud, but the one thing that did sh-t me off about his commentary was his constant (and I do mean constant) whinging about the front foot no-ball law. FCS, it had been around for 30 years (at the time of the footage on the video), plenty of time for bowlers to have adapted. I just found it incredible that he could never come to terms with the fact that every no-ball was the fault of the bowler. Not the umpire. Not the administrators.

Anyway, rant over.

For anyone that's interested in a little of Rob Moody's background, there is a one on one interview with him on the 'No Dunks' podcast. It released a few months ago now and it's an enjoyable listen for cricket fans.
