The Board doesn't own the CPL. It sold it for peanuts some years ago. By the way, CPL is supposed to be this valuable asset, yet every year it still wants a bailout from the regional governments.

Go Figure!

My point still stands as to the massiveness of the purported viewership.

Don't we have a poster from Jamaica that's an administrator at the CPL that posts here, ask him?

He vanishes when questions are asks about the CPL?

If one uses a chef to do accounting results can be exaggerated.

Ever the intellectual. Cannot argue against that view-point but why leave it to the imagination in the first place.

Well the numbers include TV viewers, so I guess the owners of the teams should be seeing a return on their investments, that increase in TV revenue is not going directly to the CWI.
