England cricket coach thinks that English public are stupid

Peter Moores the England cricket coach has rejected claims that financial gain is the main motive behind the Stanford Super Series. The winner take all series in which each England player will win $1m if they beat a rather poor West Indies side is not about money claimed Moores who is confident that national pride will be the main motivation for the English.

He further claimed that although there was a lot of money at stake "when the lads walk out there they will be playing for the badge like they always do for England."

I wonder if there is anyone who actually believes that garbage. I find it quite insulting that he would come out with rubbish like that in the expectation that the gullible English public would swallow his tripe

I remember an interview with one of the england bowlers (I forget who) who stated that 'of course we're thinking of the money- its a huge sum' (paraphrased but you get the idea).

Personally I'm more concerned that that Stanford will get his ultimate goal and make limited overs the main form of the sport- he's already publically said he finds Test cricket boring. If the ECB start taking more of his cash then who knows who will be calling the shots in the future.

It looks like the English paying public are also not bothering much with this farce of a tournament. The team are normally buoyed up by the Barmy Army who will happily cheer them along in all parts of the world even if they are playing badly but it seems that of all the hundreds of members of the BA only three are known to be going to the West Indies to watch this spectacle :rotfl:
