ECB have met the legal requirements for consultation by a public body.

The ECB is a company limited by guarantee, not a public body? Not sure if this makes any difference here

I don't understand any of the jargon in the above post but I think it suggests interest in county cricket is not quite dead.

and if you want to massively increase these stats then just get YouTube to kick out every three hours.

I do something along the same lines by posting something for AG to respond to (Sm160)

I really think the whole of the cricketing supporters should start a massive campaign to sack Graves, Harrison, Strauss, Atherton, Willis, etc etc - in fact anybody who has said this rubbish is furthering the future of proper cricket.

The whole idea has nothing at all to do with cricket - Strauss and other idiots have given the game away - if it comes off it should be played only by any overseas players prepared to sign up - and it should be shown on BBC Childrens Channel as it is aimed at mums and kids!.

PCA reveal concerns about contracts and future structure of domestic county game [www.bbc.co.uk]

Looks like the future of cricket may be in the hands of the PCA, lets hope they can put pressure on the ECB (Graves and his cronies) to abandon most of what they propose to do. There is no hope of them listening to cricket supporters
I know there is not much hope of that but we need somebody to kick Graves into touch.

Unquote.

Erm......, I must have missed something. The last sentence above refers to 2020 County Cricket structure having been agreed.

I thought life as we know it ended in 2019. Of course there are conference proposals etc. thereafter, but has anyone seen anything actually agreed re 2020 & beyond ?

Maybe I am living in the twilight zone !

The largest audience I saw on youtube was just over 1000 when we were taking the last few wickets for the win. About 900 when JH was on 99.

Streeter - YOutube's own guidance on this point says that 'whenever somebody rewinds or forward winds a video, the total view time watched may exceed the total time of the video.'

In other words, if people wind backwards of forwards through a ten minute video, the system may record their view as having lasted for more than ten minutes. With a stream that lasts more than 7 hours? One can see how the figures may be affected.

So, if people were moving backwards and forwards through the stream (for example to look for wickets that fell) or to avoid that ghastly nonsense from the Worcs CEO, then this will have affected the accuracy of the figures.

If the PCA are going to canvas their members over the new 100 balls up, it would be nice if they also included the simple question, 'Do you have confidence in Colin Graves?' 'Yes' or 'No'.

It might be the PCA feels that goes beyond their remit, and it might be players don't feel as strongly as fans do. But, if the question was asked, and the players (through a secret ballet) answered 'No' that would send out a powerful signal. Such a vote might not be legally binding, but it would be hard for Graves and co to cling on with a 'No' vote.

The players are livid about the end of automatic incremental England contracts, anyway, as they feel that it removes a justified reward and puts them at the whim of inept England management.

I wouldn't be surprised if no agreement ever gets reached over 'revenue sharing,' from the ECB's 'land of milk and honey T20 tournament,' and if a players' strike eventually ensues.

If the players are willing to perform some such act that was interpreted as 'No', that would undoubtedly send out a powerful signal! Why keep it secret? Would make great telly, perhaps just before the T-16.4?
