The WICB is de worse
« on: October 19, 2009, 04:41:48 AM »
There is not one news story on their website about the CLT20, let alone T&T success thus far. Yet The ECB (England's equivalent) does http://www.ecb.co.uk/news/world/eagles-v-tt,308179,EN.html.

Oh jeezanages WICB, stop making we feel shame nah!

this is a tricky situation. Perhaps the WICBC does not feel it has to associate itself with the Champions League since TNT got to this stage through the Stanford 20/20. Also, Im not sure whether the Champions League is authorized under the ICC
Ah say it, how ah see it

It has been authorised by the ICC, but otherwise I think you hit the nail on the head as to why the WICB wouldn't "recognise" the T&T team. Still though, it comes across as sour grapes :beermug:

Whether it was via Stanford 20/20 or via Standford private jet (if he still have one), T&T are there as the champs of windies cricket, not as Stanford superstars. WICB have no class full stop.

How do you know that Gayle would not be thinking about the entire region in speaking to the press? Why should he think specifically about T&T when he's off representing Jamaica? That doesn't make sense.

I hate making these kind of accusations. If it was any other island, the WIBC would have had it. That is unbelievable. TT is a founding member of the WIBC. We have always support the team to the max, even when we used to have one or two players on the team. There was a time we use to have two test matches. We use to support the matches to the max. Oval always full.

How all yuh know Gayle would not say he playing for JA and the region. We don't !!!!! don't we!!!!!

Wether other people in the regions are "jealous" of TT is beside the point. They are playing for the region. They won the regional tournament, so they representing TT and the WI. Honestly, I think this format is good. It probably we push regional cricket to a higher level. The local competitions have fallen off badly. That is why our (WI) has been underperforming.

Allyuh remember Ben Jonson win the 100m in the Olympics. everybody glad to say he have caribbean roots, when the mark buss, we quick to disown him.  Same thing Donovan Bailey.  When Bolt and them Jamaicans was eating up the tracks last year...trinis jump in the thing and claiming victory for the caribbean too.

I may never have lived in Jamaica, but I've known dozens of Jamaicans from my time in both NY and Atlanta plus one of my closest friends is a Jamaican. They are as varied in views and mannerism as we are so to say that we know what Gayle or Jamaicans would do if they were where we are is unsupported speculation, pure and simple. Most Jamaicans, Bajans, Antiguans, etc. that I have met and have been uncomplimentary of Trinis have had good reason to be. We are arrogant, self-centred and disrespectful of their own countries' accomplishments. That being said, my general experience has been that what affects one island affects us all. They may not always like us, but when it comes down to it we have more in common with each other than we do with Australians or Englishmen and as a result they identify with our successes and failures internationally than we think they do.

Trinbagonians jump up and celebrate when Jamaica went to the WC, we were happy to see Bolt or Kim Collins win, but we can't see that this team is doing the same thing for the region that those guys. God really have a special place for us, I'm not so sure it's as nice a place as we think it is though.
