First things first - so the Minister appoints the selectors, the selectors select the team yet the Minister has a problem. Why doesn't the Minister select the team? Still better, just appoint all the cronies to the team! This joke that is the Minister fiddling with SLC must stop and now.

Once the Minister is out we won't have these issues of over weight players or corrupt administrators. Yes that's right Mr Honorable man, you can stop the bus for an overweight player but you say nothing (absolutely nothing) about repeated corrupt administrators.

How does this work? You want the players to respect the game but the administrators who manage the players are free to loot all they want. Sooner or later the players have enough and lose respect for the administrators and the game. You can only fool some people some of the time!
