No fight, no mention of Scarborough, just blind acceptance of the situation

from the article

"....We can’t do anything about it,” said Moxon, Yorkshire’s director of cricket.

“I guess this kind of thing could only happen in England with the fixture list as it is.

“If we get to that stage and earn the right to have a quarter-final, to not be able to have one because of the fixture - well, as I say, it could only happen on an English fixture list......”

YES YOU CAN MARTYN, GROW SOME AND PUT UP A FIGHT. Insist on playing it at Scarborough, or play it on the 19th or 20th at Headingley.

So we miss out on the gate receipts, the SKY televised fee and the advantage of having a home tie, just because the ECB cock up the fixture scheduling yet again.

Yet right in the middle of a so called "blocked" competition we have a round of CC matches. Without that and a tighter schedule they could have found a blank week and scheduled the quarter-finals of the T20 comp in between two tests (like last week) and avoided the problem. The ECB are clueless, and could not organise a **** up in a brewery.
I think that's the problem if sky have paid for the qf to be televised then they'll it seems reasonable to put it at a ground that they can use cameras at.

Reaction does seem a bit wet all round by all parties.

Fair enough you can't get the Lorry's in the ground but you could park them up next to the wall on Trafalgar Rd and feed the electrics over.

Looking at the poor state of the wall these day it might even be cost effective to knock part of it down and build it up again later or put some gates on as a ground improvement.

Could only happen in an ECB led competition , and dare I say it without sounding like I have a chip on my shoulder, it could only happen to us.

Why don't the ECB just go the whole hog a ban Yorkshire. It's becoming more & more obvious that the ECB will do anything to hold Yorkshire back.

And the club wonder why some of us don't pay to watch 'Team England'

This is a first for the forum: a conspiracy theory surrounding an event we haven't actually qualified for yet. It's a cock up, nothing more, nothing less.

Agree Seadog. The ECB have not got enough brains between them to organise, plan or conspire to do anything. A straight forward cock- up!!

I remain very disappointed with the blind acceptance of the situation by MM and the club, though.

There's still time for a spurious points deduction from the ECB.

From their point of view that's the problem solved.

The lack of protest again (even if its not really meant) from YCCC is the thing that really Galls me most, we are really a weak at the knees organisation and never stand up for its Members/fans wishes in these issues with the ECB. If we give up say home advantage to Lancashire and lose the game and revenue the forums and next years AGM should be fun.
