There is a Twitter page called Slow Sports News, which posts news from years ago and is often entertaining to look at. However, it is an oxymoron in the following two ways:

1. It was where I found out about Tony Mowbray's departure from Middlesbrough FC manager, as they retweeted a post from a Paddy Power parody account, meaning that perhaps the page isn't as slow after all.
2. It only seems to cover football, meaning it is hardly worthy of using the word 'sport'.

One of the ways to access the 2014 county fixtures on Cricinfo is to click on a tab title 'Archive', even though the matches are in the future.

Having virtually no chance of winning a game of cricket but having some chance of a draw if you don't lose wickets and trying to hit sixes increasing the chance of losing your wicket.

JD and KP you are utter Oxys.

Joe Root as a batsman, as his batting form doesn't seem great, yet the make-up of the current England one-day side means he has an opportunity to contribute to the side as their best spin option.

It could be worse, as he could have been born overseas and taken the amount of players in the current England one-day side born outside of England above 50%, but the fact he was born in Sheffield keeps that figure down to five. Still, it makes it an oxymoron to call the team 'England'.

Scheduled cricket matches getting rescheduled due to football matches that probably won't happen to the inconvenience of genuine cricket fans.

I think there are 2 oxymorons in that sentence a

When something is brought forward xx days, it sounds like the new date will be original date + xx days, but in fact means the new date is original date - xx days (e.g. if something scheduled for 15th December is brought forward two days, it sounds like the '15th' is brought forward by two to become '17t'’, but in fact means it becomes '13th').

And the term 'put back' sounds like the new date is earlier than originally scheduled, but in fact means it will be later.

Animal Defenders International sounds like an organisation which condones the practice of forcing animals to withstand footballers hurling balls at them, but they are actually an anti-animal-cruelty organisation.

England touring West Indies in an effort to be as well-prepared as possible for the World Twenty20, only for Joe Root to suffer an injury which rules him out of the tournament and Stuart Broad to forgo a much-needed rest period and then aggravate a knee problem thus which makes his fitness for the World Twenty20 uncertain.

This love affair with Dernbach is no longer a joke.
It is totally embarrassing.
One decent score of 50 from any batter we
would have been home and hosed.
Wheelie still working his magic....
