Theres a diference between sponsership and selling out Rob.

Sposorship may involve various changes like timing for TV, super imposed advertising images, colourful/sexy uniforms, cheerleaders etc but not very often a change in the very nature of the sport.

When this has happened in the past, eg the versions of cricket, it has not replaced the status quo, the accepted model of excellence in the sport.

Micr-o was a naked sell-out, to people who couldn't even get the money together to make it happen. How ridiculous. Heads should roll.

A satisfactory outcome I feel. The precipitate inclusion in WOC has been averted. Now we can get on with introducing it properly. Including sorting out the rules which haven't yet been agreed:-))

Jamie I think you need to brush up on your history ... specifically Kerry Packer and the World Series of Cricket

I stand by my point...the exclusivity of that situation was never going to last (kind of like micr-o I guess).

Michael: I think this has spelled the death of micr-o not the orderly beginning.
