It is fairly clear that feelings are running high at the moment from both sides of the fence regarding the events of the past week.
In response to many requests, I am running a poll which will give a reflection of the feelings of fans at this stage. Given the legal situation, none of us outside the club know the full story about the events of this week and we may not do for some time.
I am always delighted to see your comments, but please be aware that if you are posting suggestions or accusations that I will, for fairly obvious reasons, be deleting them at this stage. While the system allows you to post as 'Anonymous' it is my name and picture on the blog and I can live without being cited in any legal issues. If you feel strongly about something drop me an e mail so I know who you are...
Peakfan36@yahoodotcodotuk. Remember to replace the word 'dot' with one, but I can live without more junk mail telling me of another relative who has died in Botswana leaving me all their money. 164 at the last count. I never realised I had such an extended family, nor that they were all so unlucky on the roads...
Regular readers will be aware that I was critical of the committee during the Amott affair, but I think criticism of them at this stage and suggestions of a petition to remove them are patently unfair and counter-productive.
We know from the media that there was little or no support for John Morris in the dressing room, for whatever reason. Chris Grant, in full possession of the facts, made a decision that he felt was right for the cricket club. Luke Sutton, commendably, was man enough to go to the media and tell the world the situation from the players perspective, taking some of the heat from the Chairman in doing so. We have not heard from John Morris but in the current situation we are unlikely to and that is his right.
I know no more than the rest of you, but I'll say this. Early in his tenure Chris Grant was big enough to make a massive decision, rather than sit on a fence. The rights or wrongs of that decision will probably come out in the course of time if the facts of the case become known, but for now I applaud him for his decisiveness.
It augurs well.
