In more brand ambassador news, Sir Allen Stanford has done away with his team of ‘legends’ that he used to promote his shamtastic cricket event.

A spokesperson said:

“He has disbanded the legends group, but at this stage no decision has been taken on the future of the Super Series.”

It is rumoured that the Stanford Legends have been replaced by the Stanford Journeymen – Viv Richards, Sir Garfield Sobers, Sir Everton Weekes et al. making way for Mervyn Dillon, Omari Banks and Tino Best.

Sir Allen Stanford can expect brand identity and recall to be severely compromised by this move.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?

  1. That is some cheeky commentary, mate. I must confess this had me laughing in quietly (in the office, I was).. Stanford seems to have fled the graveyard at the first sight of the buzzards.. Pity the WICB who hoped to cash in on the opportunistic Mr. Stanford.. But alas, it was not to last much longer for brighter prospects beckon for the Texan across the pond in the Auld Land where the ECB is waiting with scarce-concealed desperation.. Dying to sell him the product of 20/20 trifling masquerading as cricket. Thanks.
