The Stark Freaking Fact is this

 
POINT 2019-06-19 19:20:28 

IN THE GLORY DAYS OF OUR PLAYERS

DOMINANCE IN INTERNATIONAL CRICKET

THE PEOPLE IN THE WICBC SAT ON THEIR

COLLECTIVE ASSES AND BLUNTLY REFUSED

TO FORM A REGIONAL CRICKET LEAGUE .


WE are now paying for their crasss
Stupidity and the blunt refusal to
recognize that International Cricket is a very serious BUSINESS .

It aint a hobby where you select
Players to go Overseas to play Cricket to see whether Our Players
are better than England ; Australia
et al .


WHEN ENGLAND DECIDED TO LIMIT

OVERSEAS PLAYERS FROM PLAYING

CRICKET IN ENGLAND THAT WAS AIMED

MAINLY AT OUR PLAYERS .

As usual the Dummies in the WICBC
sat on their Asses and refused to
form a Regional Cricket League .

Then came the change in the format of the International Tour Schedule , no longer were the Visiting Teams
allowed an opportunity to get acclimatized to both the Weather and
condition of the Pitches .

Once again the Dummies in the WICBC
Sat on their Asses and did nothing
regarding forming a Regional Cricket League until about 8 years ago .

WE are now being severely impacted
by the WICBC'S colossal Blunders ,Obviously if the WICBC had persons withe some business acumen , they would have had the wisdom at the Zenith of Our Dominance in International Cricket to form a Regional Cricket League sponsored by Regional Businesses

SPONSORS LOVE TO ASSOCIATE THEIR

BUSINESSES WITH WINNERS , AND OUR

PLAYERS WERE DOMINATING

INTERNATIONAL CRICKET .

History informs US that the WICBC did not do One blasted thing ; My take is that with Sponsors they could have had 6 Regional Cricket
Academies .

So here WE are floundering at or near the bottom of International Cricket , due to the Freaking Fact
that the WICBC refused to understand
that CRICKET IS A SERIOUS BUSINESS.

So here WE are at or near the Bottom
of International Cricket , unable to
attract Financial Sponsors . Quite frankly in my opinion , there must be a complete Restructuring of the
WICBC ; AND THE REGIONAL CRICKET

BOARDS ; WITH COMPLETELY NEW

PERSONNEL IF WE ARE TO SAVE WEST

INDIES CRICKET .

In reply to BeatDball

You are absolutely Correct in your assessment . The People in the Worst
International Cricket Board in the
Commonwealth mistakenly believed that
Our Players would be the best Cricket Players in the World Forever .

They Stupidly ignored the glaring Warning Signs that I have mentioned , and now WE ALL are paying the
price for the Utter Stupidity of those in the WICBC .

THE WICBC IN MY OPINION CAN OFFER

NO EXCUSES FOR NOT REALIZING THE

FACT THAT THE LIMITING OF OUR

PLAYERS FROM PLAYING CRICKET IN

ENGLAND ; THEN THE DECISION BY THE

ICC TO CHANGE THE INTERNATIONAL TOUR

SCHEDULE WOULD HAVE ON OUR PLAYERS .

People with short memories seem to forget the freaking impact that those two decisions would have on
the competitiveness of Our Players
who at that time had no Regional
Cricket League .

Interestingly , the greatness of Our
Players were achieved due to the long Tour Schedule , which allowed
Our Players to get adjusted to the Weather & Condition of the Pitches .

The fact is that when the WICBC was
flush with Cash , its Members never thought of having Cricket Academies
to sustain the competitiveness of Our Players in the International Cricket Arena .

There was a time when ALL the versions of Cricket had Sponsors , they stopped being Sponsors , and the so called Sports Writers in the
Region did not have the Testicular Fortitude to find out from the Sponsors why they decided to stop being Sponsors .

THEY preferred instead to worship the Emperors in the WICBC ; and be critical of Our Players .

 
POINT 2019-06-19 23:20:32 

The Stark Freaking Fact is that if
WE want progress in West Indies Cricket:

WE HAVE TO COMPLETELY ABOLISH THE

WICBC & THE REGIONAL CRICKET BOARDS

APPOINT TEMPORARY MEMBERS AND SORT

OUT ALL THE PROBLEMS REGARDING

CRICKET IN THE REGION .


There is no law as far as I am aware that states Former Players cannot be
in the WICBC , quite frankly that
would bridge the chasm that exists between the WICBC & Our Players , this has been an on going Problem for years .

I do not have a problem with Governments giving the WICBC Money ;
however in return the WICBC & the
Regional Cricket Boards MUST undergo
Sweeping Structural Changes .

Are you no longer blaming the ECB for limiting your players?

Good points, these have been tossed around since the mid 90s’ when the losses were mounting. Nothing new here. Feel free to provide Suggestions on how to fix the issues . Some of those may be new.
Perhaps England did limit overseas players in their system to benefit their cricket.
Nothing wrong with that approach. As you stated, cricket is a business.
Cheers.

In reply to RonaldM

I am not blaming England for limiting Overseas Players from playing Cricket in England . That is their Right to do that .

The point I am making that cannot be
factually refuted is that the WICBC
had no contingency Plan to soften
that decision by England .

My take is that the ICC decision to
change the International Cricket Tour Schedule was aimed mainly at
Our Players ; who were dominating
International Cricket .

Now if you think that is Nonsense ,
consider this recent Fact :

THE TOP 4 TEAMS IN INTERNATIONAL

CRICKET COLLUDED COMPARITIVELY

RECENTLY TO HIJACK MOST OF THE ICC

PROFITS .

I cite this to suggest that England
limiting Overseas Players from playing Cricket in England , was aimed mainly at Our Players .

I am of the opinion also that the change of the International Tour Schedule was a Machiavellian Tactic
engineered by People in the ICC; who
were sick & tired of Our Teams beating them in the International
Cricket Arena .

WE ARE STILL SUFFERING FROM THAT

DOUBLE WHAMMY . WHAT IS IN MY

OPINION EXCEEDINGLY TROUBLING IS THE

FREAKING FACT THAT THE PEOPLE IN THE

WICBC SAT ON THEIR ASSES AND DID NOT

DO ONE BLASTED THING TO COUNTER

THESE 2 DECISIONS .

In essence THEY failed to see or understand the grave implications those 2 decisions would have on the
Competitiveness of Our Players in
the International Cricket Arena .

SADLY THESE ARE THE PEOPLE IN THE

GOVERNANCE OF WEST INDIES CRICKET .

8 YEARS AGO IT DAWNED ON THEM TO

FORM A REGIONAL CRICKET LEAGUE .

POINT 2019-06-20 03:05:46 

One thing I am very sure of is the
fact that My Critics cannot factually
refute what I have stated here .

If there is going to be a new Structure of the WICBC , all those
currently in the WICBC & The Regional
Cricket Boards cannot serve in these
New Structures ; THEY more than likely will sabotage the new Structure , to
attempt proving that WE revert back
to the current 1908 Structure .

In my opinion , The New Structure must be INCLUSIVE , NOT EXCLUSIVE ,
Therefore some current Players MUST be in the WICBC ; some of Our former
Players MUST also be on the Board ;&
the Regional Cricket Boards . The Regional Governments must also have
representatives in the WICBC & the
Regional Cricket Boards .
Because the Regional Governments must help in funding the WICBC or watever this new Entity is to be called .

In reply to openning

As usual you are again missing the point I have made so let me repeat
what I stated .

IN THE TOTAL RESTRUCTURING OF WEST

INDIES CRICKET PLAYERS IN MY OPINION

MUST BE ACTIVE PARTICIPANTS IN THE

WICBC AND ALSO IN ALL IN THE

REGIONAL CRICKET BOARDS .

This in my opinion would hopefully
stop the current US vs THEM mentality that pervades the WICBC &
The Regional Cricket Boards .

Unless there is Harmony between the
WICBC and Our Players WE will be akin to running very fast , but finding Ourselves in the same Freaking Place .

The stark freaking fact is that the
People in the WICBC & The Regional
Cricket Boards are saddled with "Plantation Mentality Syndrome ".
in essence , Those in the Governance
are Masters & the Players their Serfs .

To progress in International Cricket
WE Must disavow this B.S Forever , because it does not foster Harmony
between those in the governance of
Cricket and Our Players .

Obviously this affects the competitiveness our Players in the
International Cricket Arena . But then the WICBC was formed around 1908 , and its current occupants
apparently have absolutely no intention of changing the 1908 Structure of the WICBC .

I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT I HAVE TO

REMIND YOU THAT WE ARE NOW LIVING

IN 2019 , DEFINITELY NOT 1908 .

The only reason I responded to this post, is to remind you, former players have been part of this failed organization.
The other post I responded to, is to highlight, you live away from SVG and is working in the states, so why should a foreign coach not work in the region.
I have very little time to respond to your post, nothing in them is new.

 
POINT 2019-06-20 21:08:20 

In reply to RonaldM

Geographically , Our Players are
closer to England than India; Pakistan ; Sri Lanka ;Australia ; New Zealand ;

I therefore continue to insist that it
was aimed at Our Players . BTW , those
Countries had Domestic Cricket Leagues ; it was only about 8 years
ago that the Dummies in the Worst
International Cricket Board in the
Commonwealth , aka the WICBC,
decided that WE should have a Regional Cricket League .

I see that You made no comment regarding the Change of the International Cricket Tour Schedule.
The Truth is that Our Players benefitted greatly from the old Tour Schedule .

That Tour Schedule allowed Our Players , who had no Regional Cricket League to get supremely fit
and their skills sharply honed in all facets of the game , due to playing matches in between the Test
Matches .

Those matches got our Players acclimatized to the Weather ; the Pitches ; and the bounce of the ball . I seriously doubt that any ardent
Cricket fan would dispute this freaking Fact .

In reply to bolls How about this: WI should play more cricket! If you do, then you just concurred with Point!

POINT 2019-06-21 00:39:59 

In reply to RonaldM

It is paramount that WE have a completely new restructuring of the
Worst International Cricket Board in
the Commonwealth , aka the WICBC .

It is obvious that WE have an extensive Symposium regarding a completely New Structure to govern
the WICBC . The Regional Cricket Boards must also be totally Restructured .

IT IS IMPORTANT TO LET SUNLIGHT IN

REGARDING THE WICBC & THE REGIONAL

CRCKET BOARDS . THEREFORE THESE

DEBATES REGARDING RESTRUCTURING MUST

BE OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC .




In my opinion the Replacement of the
WICBC apart from the Representatives
of the various RegionalCricket Officials must also include at least
2 Representatives from each the following :

Representatives from the various Governments in the Region . Because
I want the Regional Governments to Financially Aid the WICBC .

Obviously the Players must also have
Representation on the Board . Those
Players must be selected by current
Players .

I want former Players to be also be on the Board , their input would be
very valuable to ALL .

Obviously there must be a Disciplinary Committee , That Committee would consist of Lawyers
willing to donate their Services .

The idea that a President is empowered to discipline Players without having a Proper Hearing must
be stopped . Matters regarding Discipline must be handled ONLY BY
THE DISCIPLINARY COMMITTEE .

ALL COACHES INCLUDING THE HEAD

COACH MUST BE FROM THE REGION , THEY

OBVIOUSLY HAVE SOME AFINITY WITH OUR

PLAYERS MORE THAN SOMEONE FROM

OVERSEAS .


THIS NEW ENTITY MUST USE A BANK IN

THIS REGION TO PUT IN ITS MONEY .

The Players must choose a Lawyer to
represent their Interest . Obviously
the WICBC will have a Lawyer .

The above are simply things that instantly comes to my mind , I have
not really fully fleshed out what I
fully believe a New Cricket Board must entail .

I AM ALSO OF THE OPINION THAT EVERY

3 YEARS THERE MUST BE A PUBLIC

MEETING OF ALL THOSE I HAVE

MENTIONED HERE TO REFINE OR DISCARD

WHAT WORKS AND WHAT DOES NOT WORK .

In essence Democracy must come to
West Indies Cricket . Everyone in the Region must be able to buy a Copy of the Rules & Regulations , so that if any of the various Cricket Boards stray off the Rules & Regulations , they can be criticized .

IT IS HIGH TIME THAT WE LET THE SUN

SHINE IN ON THE ACTIVITIES OF THOSE

IN THE GOVERNANCE OF WEST INDIES

CRICKET :

" SUNLIGHT THEY SAY IS

THE BEST DISINFECTANT "

In reply to Star

I joined this Forum to express my opinion . There are somethings that I
have expressed that cannot be refuted.

THE WICBC WAS FORMED AROUND 1908 ;

THE CURRENT YEAR IS 2019 . BETWEEN

1908 & 2019 THE WICBC HAS YET TO

CHANGE ITS ARCHAIC STRUCTURE ; THIS

IS DESPITE COMMISSIONING SEVERAL

REPORTS .

In the glory days of West Indies Cricket , the people in the WICBC
sat on their Collective Asses , and
bluntly refused to form a Regional
Cricket League this is a freaking
Fact not Fiction .

The slow decline of Our Players dominance in International Cricket
began when England decided to limit
Overseas Players from playing Cricket in England .

The fact is that Most of Our Players
players during that time harnessed &
Honed their Skills in England when not representing the Region .

The WICBC in its infinite Stupidity
failed to realize the effect this
move by England would have on the
competitiveness of Our Players .

THIS WAS AS I HAVE CONTINUOUSLY

STATED IN THIS FORUM ; THE WICBC

WAS ASLEEP , BECAUSE IN THE REGION

WE HAD NO REGIONAL CRICKET LEAGUE .

Obviously the Skills of Our Players
with no Regional Cricket League skills slowly but surely started
diminishing .

The second Cricket Hrricane that hit
the WICBC & the Region was the ICC
Decision to change the International
Cricket Tour Schedule ; that Tour
Schedule was of great assistance to
Our Players , due to the following
Facts :

THEY GOT ACCLIMATIZED TO THE

WEATHER, THE BOUNCE OF THE BALLS ;

AND MOST OF ALL THEIR SKILLS IN ALL

FACETS OF THE GAME WERE FINELY

HONED. DUE TO THE FACT THAT MATCHES

WERE PLAYED BETWEEN THE TEST

MATCHES.

What I have cited here are Facts not Fiction . Please bear in mind that
the WICBC still had not realized that these two factors that I have cited above , were going to have a
devastating effect on the Competitiveness of Our Players in the International Cricket Arena .

THE STARK FREAKING TRUTH IS THAT

THESE TWO FACTORS THAT I HAVE CITED

ABOVE , AND THE FACT THAT THOSE IN

THE WICBC WERE TO DUMB , TO

UNDERSTAND THE GRAVE IMPACT THESE 2

FACTORS WOULD HAVE OVER TIME ,ON THE

COMPETITIVENESS OF OUR PLAYERS AND

TEAMS .

You & Your Jumbie cannot factually
refute what I have stated here is
a Figment of my Imagination . Now
