This time from Lou Vincent....

Interesting piece from Scyld Berry there too.

As he says, the man who has the final say on the re-organisation of the ACU is himself suspended for alleged corruption !! You couldnt make it up.

Betting on cricket, generous declarations and outside pressure on players has been around since the game was invented, so its not really a shock. Just disappointment at the greed of some of these chancers.

As you say Mike its truly disappointing, but when you remember that without betting the game would never have survived infancy its not that surprising.
Really don't know where we go from here as I fear the news and accusations yet to come out are gonna shake a lot of people's (and mine) confidence in how much 'real' cricket they have actually paid to watch. There's no doubt its been going on for longer than we originally envisaged, but how much and by how many. :cry:
