Harrison to the Select commitee
« on: October 24, 2019, 09:21:12 AM »
Harrison asked 'What is the budget and how much is spent?'

Answer - in line with ECB's prior expectations.

Andy Nash - 100 an 'almighty punt' and 'reckless gamble'

ECB expects an annual income of 51M pa against expenditure of 58M pa (including payments to counties)

Therefore the ECB are spending 7M per year on the Hundred.

Andy Nash again '  has the potential to bankrupt the game'


Who employes these people?

The counties employ them. The counties have been bribed to go along with it. Diabolical.

A few quotes from Tom Harrison:-

Quote
"Everything we have done has been in consultation with our members and counties. We have 80,000 members who have been talked to. Nothing has been imposed. They could have voted it down - they didn't."

Quote
We want to bring down the barriers, make cricket more accessible. It's not just about linear channels, it's about the One Show, CBeebies, Asian Network, the enormous digital engagement the BBC brings us. If the men's World Cup taught us anything it is that the game is enormous in this country."

He should have thought of that before they sold their souls to Sky.
