Your opinion is noted and in Colin Metson I have my own which I have voiced.
Metson was by far the best wicketkeeper Glamorgan has ever had an honour that he truly deserves. As regards his professional career after cricket I know numerous people who have worked with or been party to his periods of employment and have not heard one good thing about his work ethic or the way he'd carried out his duties. The facts are that his wife worked for our ex chairman and he became friends as a result which resulted in his appointment in to a key role as director of cricket, which you may say taking the Matthew Maynard situation in to account started the ball rolling in the club's decline.
I am not a keyboard warrior and feel free to air my views which are mine personally. People may agree or disagree that is their right but the whole point of a forum is to debate.
This is a cricket forum and each member should have the right to vent their feelings. If Glamorgan cricket was running like a well,oiled machine everything would be roses but we well all know that sadly the machine is badly broken.
" Debate " is fine, when it's debate, but referring to someone as an idiot is not really debate.
Sadly, the 'web' is just a golden opportunity for individuals to throw insults around without fear of being held accountable for their actions.
Had you posted that you disliked Metson, for whatever reasons, then that would not have provoked any response from me, since to like , and dislike, is human. When gratuitous insults start to appear, however, I do tend to respond negatively, even if the person is unknown to me. It's all too keyboard warrior'ish for my liking. Totally unnecessary, and should stay on the football forums, where they sit more comfortably.
I'm not sure what the relevance of your " well oiled " machine comment is. Surely you don't blame Metson for Glam's present plight ?
Metson was highly regarded as a w/keeper, but " by far the best Glam have ever had "? That's a bold statement, when you consider the likes of Haydn Davies and Eifion Jones.
