Irishman lays waste West Indian cricket?

First Ireland destroyed the West Indies on the field, now this… Denis O’Brien (a prominent entrepreneur of the Republic’s boom years), is in the headlines again. His company Digicel, recently took over sponsorship of the West Indies cricket team. Now as a result of a ban on personal endorsements for a rival company “out of 25 players originally invited to a training camp in Barbados next Monday, just nine will be able to attend”.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
