Throughout this long, often rambling, interview I didn't see one mention of
bringing cricket to mainstream Americans aside from what the USYCA is doing.
These 50 over gigs with the Short-Shorts should never have been scheduled. Team "USA" needs to
play much better sides if they want to have a chance of making it past the Division 3 qualifier.
I'm afraid I don't hold out much hope for this ACF for the same reason no other
competing USA cricket organization has succeeded. The sole and solitary purpose
the USACA plays is organizing the national teams; men, women, junior. It's really
done absolutley nothing else for cricket in this cournty and really doesn't care to. I've ...
Jamie, curious to know (as many other people are): how much experience to
YOU YOURSELF have playing cricket? How many years have you been playing?
What clubs, what teams? And I mean out in the middle, playing a full
game, batting, bowling, fielding? If someone's trying to get America to enjoy
'the pleasures of playing ...
Need to reign in your ego Jamie. It's not good for the game. This is America, everyone who gets involved in cricket is going to run into plenty of criticism and
skepticism. If you're just going to lash out at every criticism, imagined (as you
did with the Melville guy) or real it's going to be an unpleasant road for you. ...
Think you're being a little touchy, Jamie. There's been dozens of attempts
to bring Kiwk Cricket into schools over the years that haven't succeeded (Malcolm
Nash probably the best known). Why do you assume he's referring to
your program? And I think your claim to being "wildly successfull" is rather
This was the boringest cricket I've ever watched! Multi-day cricket should be outright banned from North America. This is America in the 21st century
not Mumbai or Barbados in the 1950s. This whole event sets cricket back,
not forward, in North America.
By plaing in this thing all these guys are as tainted as the cricketers
who played in apartheid South Africa.
NO NORMAL CRICKET IN AN ABNORMAL ORGANIZATION!
Lockerbie's salary was paid by the ICC but still outrageous they were paying that kind of
money to someone who during his one and half years didn't do much except
trail the national team around with his girlfriend. Have to assume they'll pay
the new CEO more than Lockerbie got.
To paraphrase a slogan that should sound familiar: "No normal cricket in an
abnormal organiziation!" They may want to play cricket. So did the Afrikaaners
during apartheid. You agree to play for a corrupt organization you become a
party to corruption. Simple as that. If the top 40/50 players in this county ...
