Fake fielding: a rule making a mockery of the game and fans

Go ahead and Youtube “Most Useless Box”, a ThinkGeek invention. It is a neatly designed, beautiful, square-shaped black box which has one solitary purpose - as soon as you flick its switch “ON”, within microseconds, it gets mechanically turned “OFF”. Yes, that’s all there is to this device.

One last time: Battle of fringe players ft. Ashton Turner and Peter Handscomb
