Just going off the negativity on here.
"I would agree that the overall tone can be negative, with some very knee jerk reactions to a bad session or a defeat, (or an England call up!). Sometimes you'd be hard pressed to remember what a great side we've had over the past five years or so. I'm too young to remember the last golden era so I appreciate the team we have now even more, having watched a lot of garbage in the 90's!"
I couldn't agree more. If you can't find something to enjoy in the present Yorkshire side - and Yorkshire's England players - then you must be extraordinarily demanding. Perhaps the era of Hirst and Rhodes would have suited you. Or the inter-war years with Sutcliffe, Leyland, Hutton, Verity and Bowes.
Or maybe the problem is one of attitude. Personally, I get more pleasure from being a cricket-lover than from being a "fan", though perhaps I slide into the latter category from time to time. "Fan", for me, is synonymous with the needy and greedy. I think it's Marsker who often comments that the opposition are allowed to play well sometimes.
Having said that, I haven't really found a way to stop my enjoyment being impaired occasionally by ECB decisions!
