    This is utterly hilarious.

    My personal favourite has to be the guy calling Martin Williamson a 'blogger'. Yep, he practically runs Cricinfo and he's nothing but a blogger.

    well I read it, thinking how can a national organisation be so dysfunctional, but when it reports to the joke shop which is the ICCBCCI it's completely understandable.

    What other sport in the USA has 3 people constantly baddgering its administrators? There is a clear agenda to defame the organization.

    Surreal almost. I double checked to see whether it was one of those fake FB posts as it contained some well known names. And lol what was Ian O brien doing there? Overall fantastic read.

    It is legitimate, or at least as legit as anything coming out of USACA. It is written by Kenwyn Williams, its Executive Secretary.

    For those who missed the action, here's a quick summary:

    1. Peter Della Penna writes an article on cricinfo talking about some irregularities with the way the USACA conducts it's business, including how the person who looks after the social media often abuses people who comment.

    2. USACA link to the article, accusing Della Penna of being unethical and biased.

    3. David Mutton backs up Della Penna with a comment.

    4. USACA accuses Mutton of having no credentials and vaguely threatens legal action. They then go as far as to say "Peter you will be sued"

    5. Various contributors back up Della Penna and Mutton.

    6. Rozay Chardonnay enters and suggests that Peter has no credibility as a journalist. Also accuses him of bring hell bent on reporting fabricated news.

    7. Various others, including Martin Williamson enter the debate, all calling on the USACA to back down.

    8. USACA repeat the claim that Della Penna is unethical, and add to it that he is unqualified. Also describes Williamson as a blogger.

    10. USACA publish LinkedIn pages for Della Penna and Willamson. Accuses Williamson if having a big gap in his CV.

    11 a commenter points out that only Ms Chardonnay is backing up USACA. USACA tells them to go and watch baseball.

    12 USACA accuse David Mutton of being an alter ego for Peter Della Penna.

    14. Mutton's wife suggests that they are mistaken.

    15. A number of commenters ask USACA to name what Della Penna has gotten wrong in his article.

    16. Iain O'Brien offers his services as a cricketer to USACA.

    17. USACA say that only qualified journalists, who are authorised by NYPD will be able to interview players.

    18. USACA claims that "the discontent" has been planned by them.
