Men of Windies Cricket gone girly?

Windies hire shrink to “Sort issues”

submitted by Puzzled

Is this the end result of the feminization of society and sports? Are the men of the Windies trying to “get in touch with their inner selves”???

I can’t believe what I’m reading. The West Indies have been on a losing treadmill for the last while, but team management thinks that hiring a psychologist to help the cricketers “sort issues” will make a difference to the kind of unbelievable disasters and mistakes we’ve been seeing for far too long.

It’s not about “feelings”. It’s not about “thinking too far ahead” or being worried about the idiocy of two weeks ago. It’s about management, the mix and coaching. It’s about supposed professionals who let their individual egos conflict to the determent of the team as a whole. It’s also about a younger generation who lately have been overdoing it on the parties and late nights. Don’t they realize that people see them out late and know what is going on?

“See any of them heavily drinking within 48 hours of a Test and it doesn’t take a brilliant scholar to know where to put your money. That’s about management, professionalism and discipline, not psychology.”

Windies don’t need a shrink. They need someone to give them each a kick in the backside and bring back the bedtime discipline two days before a Test.

Management needs the shrink – the men need managing.

No one at their hotel knew of the match. There were no schedules available, no contact information and apparently no effort at all by the WICB or Barbados Tourism to promote cricket to hotel guests. Continue reading
