The first 15 minutes is about his role at the WICB which he has explained clearly and objectively focussing on a report of recommendations he ahs done for the Board to be addressed this month.

It is a good listen to get an insight into his thinking, his knowledge of the caveats/ barriers to achieving success, his focus on grass roots up through the teams etc.

What was not asked was who does Gibson report to and I assume it is him.

Importantly his answer around resistance to change, even in a failing environment, is an interesting perspective.

I think for those of us wanting immediate changes, it just will not happen.

One would have though after the Indian and NZ debacle heads would have rolled and most will hold that against RB.

Not sure he is responsible for the appointment of the Captain and Gibson's legal term may prevent him from making any change there anyway.

Good listen.

The board needs to make decisions on the involvement of international players in domestic cricket and the availability of players. Historically there have been issues with the players' association, which has created challenges from a legal perspective with regards to being able to call on players to be able to play.

I wasn't part of it, wasn't part of that time. I need to look at the state of the game now and make recommendations based on what I believe is the best for West Indian cricket going forward.

As you say, if you want to get sponsorship, you need to have your best players playing in the competition, you need that from a selection perspective as well so that you have a full complement of players fighting for spots and competing hard, including pressure for every spot in three formats.

Why was so much of that focused on PAK???  ::yawn::

Well day umm !! ... Pybus has talked the talk, now needs to walk his talk ....

His biggest problem in implementing his focus may well be the people who employed him to do just that !!! ....

Ketch it is done automatically. Lol.


I have never heard anyone with an all round view on the development of cricket from schools to country, professionalism and pitches.


He was realistic  about his vision, required resources and constraints. Information is being shared which wa not the case before.


This month his report is being put in front of the board.

Ketch,


As far as I am aware the Wilkins report was purely about governance and he had the integrity to resign when his recommendations were not adopted.


I know you guys may have a better understanding of operational issues over time but for the first time have I heard a consolidated sorta tegu with dedicated focus.


I have never really heard anyone from the WICB talking about pitches, a professional setup the need to focus on schools upwards and in fact RP has done it so it is not just a paper plan.


The limiting factor would be resources. I know for fact RP will find means of diplomatically getting his plans out to the public so they are aware that he mirrors the fans concerns and if it fails it is not for his will.


I do however suspect he will aid the attraction of further sponsorship which would help.


Like everyone, I would have liked to have seen both Gibson and Sammy kicked to the curb but with respect to Gibson, RP is restricted by the legals around his contract.


With respect to the captaincy the coach has a big say.


Pybus or anyone else will have to be given time and that is sensible as the team is failing anyway.

Methink he was hired as a " front " to deflect attention from the Board executives, Coach and captain.

The White English colonialist is Back !

Fool the fans .....while the execs chow down at the trough !

Pybus CANNOT deliver any novel ideas to the Board !

this whole conversation is a repeat...from the days of Bennett King. King was supposed to do all this. he did not which is one reason why I called him skunt Sking. and Sking cost a million per.

another reason is that he was incompetent and in no way worth a dollar far less a million. where is Bennett Sking now? is he even alive so completely he has disappeared from crickek considerations since he left west indies employ

now we have another skunt conjurers trick in A pie bus..where the conjurer focuses people on his right hand so deh cant see what he is doing with his left. that's the wicb. we are being dazzled with white skin once more while the nig nog flim flam artists struggle off with the pots of gold at Factory Road.

the big mout' Tom at the centre of things..Afro.. refuses to understand life and society.

there is a class in charge of society and they make a living in the way society is run. whatever happens is a result of the way they express their class interest...period. that will not change unless there is social reform bringing another class into the social power.

that's it. basic, fundamental..the way things go. nothing happens by guess.

if the survival of those in charge depended on west indian cricket success on the field of play then we would have had a lot more of that. that is absolutely logical. the position and well being of the class in charge does not depend on west indian success on the field of play so they do not care.

if cricket was the criteria ,was the requirement, they would have been long fired and other more competent people put in charge to produce greater success.

so once the class in charge remains in place..first in the west indies as a whole, then in their subsidiary branches in regional institutions like CARICOM, the wicb etc...then there will be  NO change at all.

MO MATTER WHO THEY BRING IN FROM OUTSIDE IT WILL STAY THE SAME. THEY DO NOT BRING IN FORRINERS TO MAKE THINGS BETTER BUT TO DAZZLE THE NATIVES WHO MAY BE RESTIVE. WE CANNOT EXPECT THEM TO CHANGE THE WAY THEY MAKE THEIR LIVING AND KEEP THEIR CLASS SOCIALLY DOMINANT IN THE REGION. THAT IS ILLOGICAL.

so pie bus will make no positive difference at all from the interest of the majority of west indians who want to see a winning side. he is not in the west indies for that reason. it as the same story with Sking, Dyson etc. now 10 years up the road we are back to the same thing...as if the previous generation has passed and the new must now be fooled, like their predecessors were.

I cant be bothered. this nonsense has been going on all the time. it never stops, cant stop. but there is always a new supply of fools to be taken to the cleaners
