Burnham and Cheddie must be furious. Imagine, Burnham racist enforcer in sports is given a Knighthood. These days, awards, doctorates and Phds have lost ALL of its merits.
Yeh, I know I am like a sour grape.
I think of the changes these guys could have made by making the right choices in attitudes towards their fellow Guyanese, regardless.
On cricket, during the captaincy of Llyod, he adopted a policy of intimidation of white players with his pace bowlers. South Africa politics got interwoven with West Indies cricket.
A white player made a smart ass comment, Llyod's response was to his pace attack, "lick him up good and proper." Poor white chap recieved so many blows, head, belly, groin, ribs and wherever else they could make contact on his body, other than bowling to mans bat. That day, the white man became, red, blue and black.
There was no cricket on that series, just plain contempt.
