C'mon Tubby and Kaspa (CA Directors), you're ex-cricketers who can understand the players views. Kick Sutherland, Howard and Roberts in the qunt and sort this.

Mike Brearley is stressing about the implications of the impasse on the Ashes series, but Graeme Smith is backing the players.

Cape Town - Former Proteas captain Graeme Smith has jumped to the defence of Australia's cricketers as they continue their pay dispute with Australian cricket authorities.

As it stands, over 200 Australian cricketers are technically unemployed after the last Memorandum of Understanding between Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers Association expired over the weekend.

Emergency meetings have not found a solution as yet, with Cricket Australia reportedly keen to ditch the policy of a revenue sharing model with its domestic players, particularly those who do not feature in the Big Bash.

But Smith, who has not been the most popular person in Australia over the years, has had his say as an independent board member of the Federation for International Cricketers Association (FICA).

"I was part of a revenue-share partnership model for many years as a player and this was a critical factor in fostering the relationship between board and players," Smith said in a statement issued by FICA.

"In the current cricket environment where players have other options I donít understand why a board would want to change a partnership that has proved to be successful."

If the issue is not resolved soon, Australia's upcoming tour to Bangladesh as well as this summer's Ashes could come under threat.

Chappelli suggests that the administrators, rather than the players cut their income.

This could be the first prolonged on strike experienced by Reeks ffs and the worst number six in test history.

For the very first time EVER (cos he's a complete and utter qunt) I actually agree with Crappelli.

ACA boycotts Aus A tour to SAf

"The proposed Australia A tour to South Africa, due to start next week, will not go ahead, with the Australian Cricketers' Association announcing today that the players have chosen not take part as a result of the ongoing stalemate over a new Memorandum of Understanding.

The ACA released a statement confirming an earlier resolution passed at a meeting of the ACA executive last weekend that players would not agree to tour unless an MOU "on fair terms" was in place, and while any out-of-contract players thus remained unemployed."


-----------------------------------------

So financial pain for CA starts now. Lift your game, you lazy qunt Sutherland.

CA's position:

And of course, we point out that they bear full responsibility when we chop her up, and that we shall not submit to blackmail!

Some strange parallel world I find myself in agreeing with Chapelli. Shocked
Chances of the qunts to take a pay cut however...

Comment from my SA board.

The cause is not helped by the likes of the inarticulate Dave Warner who leaves meetings in his ridiculously expensive car. Not saying he shouldn't drive a Lamborghini (or whatever it is) but like the US car executives who all flew their private jets to Washington to ask for bailout funds post GFC some discretion around these matters is helpful.

Oh well Mrs GCS is doing her best to bring home the bacon during these tough times. She is in some 'celebrity' reality cooking show.

ECB says sort your shit, Aussie

"England will not travel to Australia to play the Ashes unless a deal has been agreed between Cricket Australia and its players' association.

Although the Ashes are not scheduled to start until November 23, England are due to fly to Australia at the end of October and an ECB spokesman confirmed to ESPNcricinfo they would not travel unless they could be assured of the necessary warm-up games required before the Test series begins.

While the ECB remains confident the Ashes will go ahead and is preparing for them with that in mind, they recognise the significant divide that currently exists between Cricket Australia (CA) and the Australian Cricketers Association (ACA) and have noted the decision of players to withdraw from the Australia A tour to South Africa."

And a fair thing too.

Old hat. Warnie did that twenty years ago during the negotiations that set the current model up. Still it was a dickhead move then as it is now. Million dollar arm ten cent brain. Or in Warner's case million dollar bat ten cent talent.

I'd reckon most of the top players would see their CA salary as smallish change. Most, if not all, of them would have big sponsorship dollars rolling in, so I think Wavy Chitlin Davy would be OK.

You would assume that CA wouldn't want to give up the cash cow of a home Ashes series , not to mention being heavily lent on by the powers that be at Nine to ensure it goes ahead.

Fools. Everyone knows warm-up games nowadays are a farce designed to make sure the visiting side's prep is shithouse.

ACA looking to out-manoeuvre CA

"The Australian cricketers' union is trying to woo both "approved" sponsors and their rivals, in a bid to get a jump on Cricket Australia in their stalled pay deal negotiations.

The union has confirmed to the ABC that it is not only seeking to sell the rights to players' images to rivals of Cricket Australia's "protected sponsors", but they are also courting the current sponsors.

If the union secures a deal, it would pull the rug from under CA's feet as the pay deal crisis drags on.

While it has also been reported the union is shopping the rights overseas, the ABC has learned the challenge is also closer to home, with approaches to Australian sponsors as well.
...
The players handed over their group licensing rights to a new company called The Cricketers' Brand, formed by the union, in the lead-up to the June 30 expiry date for the last MOU.

While players and their agents have retained some rights to sell their individual images, the ability to make money from the team's image, though sponsorships and appearances, has been handed to the union's company."


-----------------------------------

I'd PMSL if ACA caught CA with their pants down.

Starc has already taken out sponsorship with Audi which is in opposition to CA's Toyota.

BTW, one would assume that the officials are also not being paid, given that the revenue has been raised by the players and the officials have refused mediation so are doing nothing to solve this seemingly intractable issue.
