All businesses do it. There are companies that are researching things that will come to the market in about ten years time. Future planning is a critical part of the business.
Being a rather sad case I've just had a look at Part 4 of the Broadcasting Act 1996 - if you're ever struggling to get to sleep it might be worth a try - anyway it looks to me like any decision to add an event, or I suppose remove one, would by definition be subject to the possibility of being Judicially Reviewed and even an old hack like me can think of a few pretty cogent arguments that could be put forward on behalf of the ECB - it's a nice idea to make The Ashes free again but I reckon, to use a hackneyed lawyers phrase, 'twould be "Wednesbury unreasonable" to follow this recommendation - in which case primary legislation would be needed and I can't see any government having the time or inclination to do that.
This is spurious reasoning. The 23,000 is the number of coaches who are employed in primary schools and secondary schools through Chance to Shine. This is run through clubs and usually involves coaches doing a few hours a week in a selection if local schools. Some may do 20 hours a week on C2S, others three or four a week, and others like me the odd hour here and there when there's no one else around. These 23,000 people would no longer be employed by C2S... but that's not 23,000 full time job losses. I'd rather see how many hours of coaching C2S provides.

As I say - I'm not disputing that, merely that there's a limit to what you can plan for.All businesses do it. There are companies that are researching things that will come to the market in about ten years time. Future planning is a critical part of the business.
I'm with Richard on the planning issue - which is doubtless why my business has never expanded
There isn't. You can make a few very rough guesses at what a few impacts might be but you cannot have a hope in hell of commenting with authority on the wide-scale impacts. It's only responsible to try to plan as best you can, but that best is very much sketchy.
Wow, would love to dig up the thread when the Ashes went exclusively to Sky and compare the posts.
Amazing turn around. Quite interesting.

Would be interesting if you could find one Jono. Wouldn't think my view has changed tbh, was always unhappy with terrestial coverage.
