    David White going full ****** now, talking about how the captaincy of the shorter-form of the game was too much of a workload for Ross.

    So they wanted split captains because the was too much work for one person to be captain of all forms.

    But now McCullum is captain in all three forms. /sureeeeeee

    He didn't lose the captaincy he was offered the test captaincy

    workload for a young captain was a lot

    Liar. Hesson wanted him to step down in all three forms.

    Fire this muppet. Fire the board. Fire Hesson. SPARC to step in like they did with Rugby League.

    He hasn't lost the dressing room

    Then why ****ing fire him?

    Our performance is not good enough

    That's what happens when you have a dire board

    Some classic bull**** so far:

    David White on Ross Taylor
    "He's a popular player and we fully support him"

    David White on Mike Hesson
    "He felt it would be better for Ross"
    "He felt the workload was a lot and should be shared"

    and the pearler...

    David White on Ross Taylor
    "He didn't lose the captaincy. He was offerred the test captaincy"

    This is just pathetic, Hesson and NZC are caught with a smoking gun, screaming blue bloody murder that it wasn't their fault, and they're going to get away with it.

    When we go down 3-0 to England and White comes out for the presentations we should make our opinion of him clear.

    David White also frequently commenting

    "I'm the CEO and I want to put my hand up and front this"

    "I was out of the country"

    "Mike felt...." "Hesson felt...." "Mike thought..."

    I can't believe I've heard commentators on the game say this guy David White is someone to be respected.

    Is Hesson the driving force or just a stooge? I'd like to know and I don't trust anything David White says..

    Former ND opener. It's to be expected he's terrible.

    (Sorry Howsie, that was a cheap shot)

    AFAIK

    He manages McCullum and I think Hesson.

    He was in the meeting to decide who would be the new coach.

    Is McCullum's manager.

    Probably aligns with Vettori on succession of McCullum after Vettori stepped down as captain. But then the panel choosing Taylor as captain threw a spanner in the works.
