-Someone within NZC has leaked all of this, hanging the national skipper, the face of the game in this country, out to dry and publicly humiliated him
-Other players around the issue are calling out their employer publicly
-Members of NZC didn't even wait until their CEO was in the country before proceeding with aiding this coup
-They have previous history, a long and proud history in fact, of complete and utter incompetence
And, to my mind, one of the worst aspects of this:
- No-one from NZC has had the basic decency to say a single thing in support of ANY of the players. I mean any halfway decent CEO, coach or Chair of the Board would have said "he is our best batsman and contributes a great deal to the New Zealand side" - even if they had already made up their mind to sack him.
