    Tabs Snubs Media in Controversial Press Conference


    Backroom staff at the Brudenell Social Club Pub Quiz Team have never been portrayed as personable or enthusiastic towards the media. But tensions from the club reached a new head yesterday as a senior member of he management team sent a message of sheer contempt to the gathering press.

    Tabs the cat, 4, attended the pre-season Brudenell press conference evidently without any intention of answering questions. His motivations at this stage seem unclear, but what is certain is that he has no plans to play ball.

    Tabs began to look disinterested almost as soon as the first question was asked - "Why was the captaincy given to Angelo Mathews, over the much more experienced hands of Younis or Swann?" The question was met with an icy stare from the Brudenell cat, who proceeded to turn around and fall back to sleep.


    Tabs refused to answer any questions on the decision to decrease the role of specialist fast bowlers

    Incensed as the reporters may have been, Tabs was not done. Upon being inquired of his side's chances as title this year, given that the specific nature of the squad may become restrictive mid-season, the moggie simply turned his back on the cameras and left the room. Whether this belies a lack of faith in his team is unclear at this stage.

    The press conference by this time had descended into little more than a farce, and was swiftly ended by known associate and lodger of Tabs, Mr. Chris Howe. Seemingly intent on removing the media from the area entirely, Mr. Howe made it clear that the press conference was not going to be resumed any time soon.

    "Why in the flying **** are you taking so many pictures of the cat?" Mr. Howe is believed to have exclaimed.

    At this pre-season stage, it seems difficult to grasp what effect the media snub was supposed to have had. What is clear is that Brudenell staff are intent on keeping their cards very close to their chests, and perhaps it would be foolish to underestimate their secretive preparations for the season.
