Mercenary cunts.

Sussex saved the careers of Laurie Evans, Reece Topley and Chris Jordan then they bugger off to Surrey.

Phil Salt was just a local league batsman and Sussex worked with him and now he is an international so how does he repay them? Buggers off to Lancashire.

Cricket will soon be like football where the top 2 just buy up anyone they like whilst teams like Sussex just scrape around at the bottom.

Modern cricket is shit.

Expect Garton to go next.

Re: I hate modern day cricket players.
He has done nothing the last 2 seasons, already planning his next career by doing commentary.

I doubt he will play enough to get booed, be injured before the end of the first month of the season,

Re: I hate modern day cricket players.
Journeyman?
He is 32 with 125 Test wickets and over 100 ODI wickets

Hope you will boo him as a 'MERCENARY CUNT' you described the other players as.

Re: I hate modern day cricket players.
Moneybags? 🤣🤣🤣

Just another journeyman looking for one final pay day.

The Sussex team today had an average age of 20. The oldest player was the 22 year old captain.

Sussex pay these boys peanuts.

Surrey are the CFC of the cricket world.
Being a Middle man, it's double hard right now.

Northern cunts all out of the T20 competition.

I’m sure Warwickshire will go out and buy a few players.

Re: I hate modern day cricket players.
Robinson and Archer should leave Sussex too.

Get to a big Test ground.

Re: I hate modern day cricket players.
I do look at likes of Topley, Foakes and Mills who left for bigger things and all won grand total of zero trophies whilst Essex won loads.

Something nice when so called small counties beat the big boys.

Re: I hate modern day cricket players.
Problem is, cricketers don't earn huge money unless you are one of the top, top players. The average players don't earn enough to allow them to show honour and repay faith shown. If they get a chance to up their salary they are off as they have to take it when they can.

We lost Buttler to Lancs, he reckons it was because Kieswetter was getting the gloves. Then Kieswetter copped a bad one and retired anyway.

Re: I hate modern day cricket players.
Topley clearly has form, as he done the same to essex.

Shows what a clueless cunt he is though, as he's probably won virtually fuck all while essex have bathed in trophies.

Clearly just in it for the wedge, as can't remember surrey being too successful themselves in recent years.

Don't earn like footballers so can see why they do it.

Because nobody EVER moves jobs for more money.

Re: I hate modern day cricket players.
Jordan
Evans
Salt
Topley
Duckett
Stoneman
Jennings
Gleeson

I could name 30-40 more.

Re: I hate modern day cricket players.
So you mention 4 players from one county and suddenly they're all mercenaries. Well played.

Re: I hate modern day cricket players.
The old characters like Ray East.. Phil Edmonds.. Derek Randall... Mike Brearley... Eye..
Peter Willey was a proper hard man apparently, well I'm going on what Alan knott said

My hero growing up in those summers was John Emburey..
Cool?...
Steve Mc'Queen harassed him throughout the summer of '76

FC

I think the press are struggling to find anyone with a good word to say about him on a personal level.

My (only) favourite Dexter story is his greeting to Ray East in the lift during a test trial in which Eastie had taken a hat-trick - 'Morning, Pocock'

Mercenary = supporting a family and providing a future
The average first-class career is between 10-15 years, If a bigger and better employer offered you more money wouldn't you take it?
Unfortunately (and fortunately) we don't live in the sixties anymore. Sport is professional, hard, and only offers a finite life span.

Re: I hate modern day cricket players.
The trouble is when teams like Surrey and Lancashire don’t make a final they just get the cheque books out and buy a counties top talent.

The ECB fund it so they know what they are doing, they want less counties.

I intend to enjoy the T20 finals day because I can’t see Sussex being in it for a very long time.

LeroysBoots 12:00 Fri Aug 27
Re: I hate modern day cricket players.
Agreed

My county, Kent, has always developed talent similarly to Sussex

Cricket going down the football route, sad and such a shame

That's why I love it when counties like Sussex and Somerset stick it to the bigger counties

Particularly loved Somerset stuffing Lancs last night

Re: I hate modern day cricket players.
For you Sussex fans and indeed all cricket fans, Ted Dexter died two days ago

RIP
