Why so Cynical?

Now, if you know me, you will know I'm a Scottish bloke who really loves cricket, and supports the Scottish team, but .... you know, sometimes I think Cricket Scotland does not have the same vision for my national team as I do [and for the record I want them to win a lot more matches than they currently do]

The most recent questionable decision was that taken today [Mon 8th Jun 2015] to drop Kyle Coetzer for the T20 Qualifyers this summer. Now, I don't know the ins & outs, but I do know the player himself is not sure, so it must be with the board.

Thi comes in the aftermath of former Cricket Scotland Chairman Keith Oliver supporting the deal to give more money to India, England & Australia at the expense of every other member of the ICC, ie his own country! But then again I suppose a gong is just reward for treachery.

Cricket Scotland has kowtowed to the ECB for too long, but only to the ECB's benefit, if you want to learn a lesson about getting into bed with English.

Game of Thrones and the Game of the Real World

In the recent span of my life I have endured some of the filth that is broadcast under the title "Game of Thrones" I guess you can tell I am not a fan.

Now I know my blog is not incredibly interesting, but even when my blog is flagging, were I to have the option "throw in a gratuitous rape scene" I would like to think I would not do that.

But then again I do not watch such drivel.

I could write a longer polemic on the subject, but I think you get what I am saying.
