from the recent series is this equitable, people are often here complaining about CPL playing in TT. can you imagine if Jamaica with two stadiums got all those games?

How you are feeling right now is exactly how CAMERON and CWI wants it- they want us (territories & fans) to fight each other about who is getting more matches, resources etc. That is the classical old way to divide and conquer.

Don't let it work my brother.

If Windward Island (and there are no country called Windward Island, but ah know weh you mean) get 5 or 6 or 7 games and Trinidad got none, then lets just be happy for them while working to create a new way that will ensure each territory gets an equitable piece of the pie.

Yep. There is absolutely no competitive bidding on the hosting of cricket matches. The other islands "just say the word and their souls are healed" by Dave.

Yep. Jamaica did not put itself in a position towards attaining a contract by submitting a bid.

but Ja has 2 stadia or is it stadiums

I think if I were writing a bid to host cricket matches on behalf of the Jamaican government, I would use stadia. Elsewhere, stadiums is just fine. But I get the tenor of your post.

It eh bidding anymore when you agree to forego rental of the ground and absorb the cost of ground staff who have to wait months before dey get paid. Its just another example of the lack of consensus among CARICOM Countries

 
Kalinago 2019-03-16 17:03:03 

Jamaica is 2.5 million while the so-called Windward Isles are merely 500,000. Each of the 4 Windwards (except for Dom) has at least one an international airport. Besides, the economy (collective) of the Windward Islands is in a better shape than Jamaica’s. There isn’t the level of security concerns in the OECS countries as there is in Jam.

Should we invoke the per capita conundrum, that's 125,000 per stadium (4) for the Windwards.

Contrast that to 1.25 million per stadium (2) for Jamaica.

Why would it appear equitable for the Windwards to be awarded more games without the population to support them?

 
Drapsey 2019-03-16 18:31:10 

In reply to Commie

At least camos is from a country boasting two well known international airports.

As per Kalinago (as quoted above), Dominica (Dom) doesn't have any. Backwards if you ask me.

 
Kalinago 2019-03-16 18:36:57 

The people of the Windward Islands are more cricket hungry than Jamaica. It is easier to mobilize smaller communities. The larger the community the more there are competing activities.

Could safety be a concern. Not too long ago Jamaica was under a state of emergency

 
Drapsey 2019-03-16 18:50:07 

In reply to Kalinago

I understand. That's why it manifests itself in the attendance at those 4 stadiums/stadia.

I can clearly recall the first test match in St. Kitts when footage of the attendees was beamed. It shows Skerritt with his daughter, the press core, broadcast technicians, about 3 hundred fans scattered about the park (hope they were paying fans), plus 4 men sitting at a table under a tree playing dominoes.

I can't recall any reports of (violent) crimes being committed against cricket fans (or sports tourists of any kind).

 
Kalinago 2019-03-16 18:54:05 

I wouldn’t describe Dominica as backwards. St. Lucia got their airport due to hemispheric countries’ security concerns, Grenada got theirs due to Cold War politics, St. Vincent just got theirs most recently due to Venezuelan, Mexican, Ecuadorian, Vincentian cooperation. Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados, St. Lucia, Guyana got their airports during British colonialism. All the Windwards, with the exception St. Lucia got their airports when they became independent. It was the biggest capital project in all of those countries. It is not that Dominica is ‘backwards’, just unfortunate.

And you can't punctuate.

Now you're even (and it's not because you two share the same last name).

There is no country call Windward Islands but guess what, the Windward Isles is more of a country than the archaic West Indies. At least the the Windward Island have a common n currency, and a stable one too ($2.70 to the US dollar).

Dude! there are 6 members of the WICB, it does not matter how many stadium a member has, Jamaica can't argue for two test because it has two stadiums, be careful of the reforms you seek!

from the recent series is this equitable,

You may wish to elucidate or do you think the allocation above is equitable?

....................

My take on your take: The winwards got all this and here we have MBers complaining about TNT getting so much for CPL. Now what if Jamaica with two stadia got all these games would folks complain?

As if the games were given to Winwards to the disadvantage of our countries. Man get a grip...there was a competitive bidding process.

 
camos 2019-03-16 21:04:55 

In reply to Courtesy

I asked if so many games were played in Ja or any of the other WICB members, you think there would be no complaint ? Do you think this allocation had the election in mind.

I will never cast aspersions on Dave Cameron knowing full well that all countries were free to bid on these games.

In fact, the new BDS govt chastized the DLP for not tendering on the Womens' World Cup.

Blame your govt for not tendering not Dave Cameron nor the recipient countries which saw the value of hosting and made it their duty to bid...stop believing in free lunches.

The two is of the assumption that Bim favour Cameron because they get a number of matches.

While this is true, when games are held in the islands, it's not the member board that oversees the game, its the local board of the country that does. So, their obligation stretches farer and wider than 6 members big grin

 
Kalinago 2019-03-19 14:16:28 

And meanwhile... In X big island, it would be even a worse performance:

"Kamrun w/o his daughter, the impressive core, broadcast technicians, about 3 hundred fans scattered about the park, plus 3 women sitting at a table under a tree playing dominoes."
