Pretend like he is reading (or that you are in a townhall meeting)......ask a question.

DO NOT ANSWER THE QUESTIONS. ONLY ASK.

INTELLIGENT QUESTIONS ONLY!

Why should WE Trust Mr. Skerritt when
HE is a part of the Problem He is
already tainted , therefore my perspective is that HE cannot be a
part of the solution .

What is needed as I have continuously
advocated in this Forum is the removal
of ALL Current Members of the WIBC &
the Regional Cricket Boards .

THEY HAVE BEEN AND ARE A LARGE PART

OF THE PROBLEM , THEY THEREFORE

CANNOT BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION .

In essence they are already TAINTED.

WE simply cannot afford to have these people set in their Ideas at
the helm of a Restructured West Indies Cricket Board .

In essence when a Person who has Cancer it is excised , The Worst International Cricket Board in the
Commonwealth is afflicted with a Cancer that prevents its Members from making meaningful Structural
Changes . THEY , therefore cannot be
a part of the Solutions regarding
West Indies Cricket .

You appear to have a lot of time on your hands. Why don't you throw your hat in the ring?

That would be a much more productive way of registering your distaste for the establishment than writing the equivalent of an epistle a day on cc.com.

As an Independent Director, Skerritt only attends 4 meetings per year. So I gather those kinds of Directors are not involved in all decisions.

Therein Lies the Freaking Problem ,
this is precisely why there must be

A COMPLETE RESTRUCTURING OF THE WICBC/

CWI AND ALL THE REGIONAL CRICKET

BOARDS IN THE REGION .

I have been stating this from the
2nd.January 2003 . Before dealing with the Players , it is imperative
that WE have a Complete Restructuring of ALL Cricket in the
Region .

I do not have a problem regarding
Governments giving the WICBC/CWI Money , However that must only be done when ALL CRICKET BOARDS in the
Region are completely Restructured .

Players in my opinion must have input in ALL Cricket Boards .

THEY MUST HAVE AN INPUT , AND NOT

BE TREATED AS SERFS BY THE VARIOUS

CRICKET BOARDS IN THE REGION .

It is high time WE denounce this
Massa Mentality , that has its Origin when those in the WICBC were
" White " and most of Our Players were of a different pigmentation .

The Idiots in the WICBC to this very day relish this demarcation , because it allows them to treat Our
Players like Serfs .

In my opinion it is precisely this
attitude & behaviour , that caused
Cameron to be callous regarding the
Freaking Fact that he did not precisely know what level Contract
Darren Bravo had .

CAMERON DID NOT BELIEVE THAT NOT

KNOWING WHAT LEVEL CONTRACT BRAVO

HAD WAS IMPORTANT . HOWEVER IT WAS

IMPORTANT TO BRAVO .

My perspective is that Once ALL
Cricket Boards in the Region are
Restructured ; WE have to insure that the Relations between ALL Boards & Cricketers are harmonious .

Unless this is done We aint going to
have any freaking Progress in West
Indies Cricket .

Currently in my opinion Most of those in the Region who claim to be Sports Journalists , in actuality are devoid of the Testicular Fortitude to be Critical of ALL the
Cricket Boards in the Region .

They have become Sycophants of the
Worst International Cricket Board in
the Commonwealth ; and its Satellite
Cricket Boards . It is their timidity that has emboldened the WICBC & the other Regional Cricket Boards to become Dictatorial .

The Hero worshiping of Cricket Boards in the Region is detrimental
to West Indies Cricket .

Look , why would I join an Entity that
has been in existence for 90+ years
and Bluntly refuse to undergo serious
Restructuring ?????

That would be akin to swimming against a very strong Current , I
aint that freaking Dumb . The People currently in the Worst International
Cricket Board in the Commonwealth now want to make Cameron an Emperor.
