Boat Race 2012

#1
Race stopped due to some ******** swimming in front of the boats. The ref has turned into a right cake and arse by turning the boats around and bringing them back to where they were!
 
#2
The race favourites have surely now changed to Cambridge. With the extra weight and power, I know who my 50pence is on!

Yes there is, the reason I favor them is Steve dudek! The perfect example of a male.

Is there any particular reason that you favour the Light Blue?
They've got more oars.
Edited to add: What a farce, Cambridge certainly profited from the initial incident. The restart gave them another go at 'their bend', they were started level when Oxford had been ahead and it should have been another restart when the oar broke. The umpire? A Cambridge man. Pah.

Brilliantly interesting race. Glad I watched.

I wonder who was happier with the delay; camebridge or the pub landlords?

Bloke without the oar could have been the second swimmer to disrupt the Cambridge boat if he'd been quick enough!

Could the first bloke not have been stopped before he got close to disrupting it? Bodes well for the Olympic water events?

Point well taken Sapper. There was enough people spectating.

Excitement not over yet. One of the Oxford crew is in extreme distress. Been lifted out of the boat and is receiving attention on a support boat.

All he needs is a mars bar and a can of pepsi

Trophy presentation cancelled. The injured rower is still being treated but is conscious and sat up.

How incredibly exciting.

Next year they should issue the Stroke with machine guns

Can the swimmer get across to Augusta and ruin the golf next?

That's a good point. Make a note, Darling... "Recommendation for the Oxbridge Vice-Chancellors: Heavy machine guns for strokes." Bright idea, Blackadder.


Bahhhhhhhhh!

Why should it have been another restart? Oxford were warned before the clash.

They alternate between an Oxford and a Cambridge umpire each year.
