I know for a fact, NWCL, CMCC (Chicago), Dallas voted No. That is equivalent to atleast 135+. Do an Audit, the whole process will be exposed. The Traitor, oops i mean Arbitrator is not independent. He is the President of the Washington Metropolitan League. It says on cricinfo. Check it out. The Crook has done it again. The whole process is rigged. Turned the "NO" to "YES". Yeah right, he wants to build the future. You figure it out.

Ok, so according to the tabulation 50 or so said no to the constitution. SCCA itself sent in about 30+ "NO" votes. You mean to say that the whole nation sent in the other 20 "NO" votes.

There are 667 clubs in USACA today. Out of which 287 or so sent in their votes. 201 said "YES". WHY DO YOU THINK ONLY 287 VOTED? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE REST OF THEM? OK let's analyze this. 287 voted. 201 - Chicago (Masood's region 150 clubs and the rest came from Dainty's - Washington, Charlie's - Florida region and Laks - NCCA). That sums it up. These 4 will get elected to the board and that is the 4 votes needed out of 7 for Dainty to be President for life according to the new constitution.

Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
