Fellas start to talk fackery. No president should micro-manage,...formulate the policy, get buy in and ensure the policy is implemented.

We will revert to going backyards now. Why would you vote a man out that has done so much for WI and players?

Lets see what the new team can do! cry

Tonight Cameron must be feeling, like the big idiot he've been called, on this MB.

I have been posting for a long time that the Cameron administration had done nothing for Jamaica. The protracted ignoring of Jcan test players for WI duties is unforgivable, added to the humiliation of not playing Blackwood, the only Yardie on the test team at Sabina Park in front of his home crowd another unforgivable decision. Cameron cannot expect support from his home country when he had no backbone to support Yardie test players. Skerritt hopefully will learn from the mistakes of Cameron or he may find himself as a one term President, despite overwhelming support from Jamaica in this election.

He had nothing to do with that? The selectors made their choice. I did no agree with not playing Blackwood at Bina but, Cameron had nothing to do with that.
It was fact up that CBrung ignore Blackwood. Unforgivable.

The day Cameron decided he didn't want Sammy and the Trini Players, Conde noted they are all trouble, he was doomed.

I am sure you saw when he micromanaged in all areas of CWI,
good riddance.

At the stakeholders level anyone but Cameron. A humiliating

Will history be kind to him, in time we will know.

First Cameron, then Browne, hopefully a full cleaning out of incumbent selectors who continued to fail WI cricket and WI fans.

Let back up here Tamarind Jones,did Jamician Dave not install Dancing Bravo as captain.
Did he not made Dancing Bravo a life time member of his club in Ja.
Dave was the prince of Tunipunia and your all tits call him papa Dave before the India tour.

Skerritt's ministerial experience should help in this regard.

Congratulations to Mr Skerritt and Mr Shallow. Gentlemen, a tough road lies ahead as much will be expected. My advice is remain humble and always act in the best interest of West Indies cricket.
