Should Lickit Club teams be allowed to co-opt National Flags

 
FanAttick 2022-09-15 16:07:33 

This gives the impression that they are sanctioned by the nations involved. In my opinion these lickit teams and their supporters should be forbidden from displaying national flags in any kind of promotional materials, apparel or advertising…in fact the names of the countries should not be allowed to be used either…

IF THEY WERE SERIOUS ABOUT franchise cricket, they’d have done that.
This was always about money and nothing else so import some foreigners, dilute the better team(s) and enrich the weaker ones with dem Trinis, but use national pride to drive the ‘non-country’ teams

What flag is for guyanese Indians? big grin

No.

These private franchise teams should have been named after the host city of their respective franchises. Ie. Georgetown Amazon Warriors, Port of Spain Knight Riders, Kingston Tallawahs etc. Just like in the IPL, Big Bash, and all the other domestic T20 t'ments.

Oh rass, ask Acid about Coob

Would calling something POS or Kingston or Georgetown make any difference than Trinidad, Jamaica and Guyana? confused
You KNOW how these flag wavers behave.

Good point. But I think in the long run if they had done the city names it would have become less about rabid nationalism and more about "my team".

That's exactly it! If Sando wants a team they can't now go under the national banner because of TKR.

Or let's say, Albion in Berbice wants a team they can't because of GAW.

So franchise expansion within individual countries is completely foreclosed.

Like tennis players that have fans waving flags from the country of their origin?

Or they should be banned from doing so as well?

Co-opt is correct but there is a character limitation in the title on CCC lol

Franchise is the only way in the Caribbean to prevent T&T playing Guyana every year in the final

Well the supporters of traditional cricket are literally dying off, so once that crutch is gone, anything can happen.

Individuals are free to do as they please…
I’m talking about clubs passing themselves off as countries…

Emrit don't come from San Fernando,I think he is from Diego Martin.

Great piece of fun fact there

The point was, Rayard Emrit is always the Trini B side mascot
The first side is the QPCC crew

Listen mate I am supporting Tallawahs from start of 2022 CPL,if i was I Trinidad I would get a Jamaican Flag and wave it.When I first saw the team I thought they will win this CPL.They have players that I think are winners,King,Amir,Allen,Smith,Powell and Jangoo who is got potential to be a very good T/20 player.I still hope to see TKR in the mix,but something is not right with them.

Ok.

Like the Toronto Blue Jays and Toronto Raptors?

Blue Jays….Canada’s team

Raptors…..We the north

Both franchises based in Toronto.

Both represent ALL of Canada. Complete with Canadian flags, Canadian national anthem played before every game (home and away mind you) etc.

That should be banned too?

There is absolutely NO EVIDENCE that you engaged your not inconsiderable intellect when you came up with this doosey.

CITYBOY 2022-09-16 00:27:42 

Every one of the CPL teams names start with a country ...so it’s common sense that irrespective of it being a franchise it’s association with fans is COUNTRY..
Should two franchises eventually be based in one country then things may change...I can’t see that happening as expansion would be to other countries.. who knows we can get CUBA REVOLUTIONARIES...!!!

Did the same happened, when a Baseball franchise was in Montreal and a Basketball team was in Vancouver?.

New York has 2 Baseball teams, Mets and Yankees.
Why can’t Guyana have 2 without being identified as different cities??

Emrit is from Tunapuna, not San Fernando. Tunapuna Tigers could be the team!
