ECB spending

The debate about whether cricket should be free to view has been highlighted before on Cricket Burble by guest Burbler Ben Ferns, but the discontent continues to rumble on in some areas. When this last hit the headlines the ECB were keen to point out how the grass roots would suffer as that's where the Sky money went, so this Guardian piece with a little more detail about how the ECB spends money was interesting. I learnt two things - not as much as I thought goes on grass roots (not sure why I'm surprised by that as I've very rarely heard of a club who has been given a handout), and the England players earn more than I thought!
