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.

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

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?

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.
