Elaine Davis, Jamaica’s super tall Goal Shooter at a press conference before the 2007 Netball World Champs
I recently got interested in netball after my too other favourite sports (football and cricket) continue their downward spiral. The reggae boys and the West Indies are at the bottom of the FIFA and ICC rankings and sometimes I can’t bother with the embarrassing performances. If I was up to my I’d fire every last coach, player and member or the various boards and start fresh with new people and same under 15 players as the senior teams and build up the cricket and soccer teams with a 5-10 year goal in mind.
Netball is a great sport, I went to my first netball game a few years ago when a new indoor arena was built here and thats when I realized that it was a ripe hunting ground for girls on the field and as spectators; plus the eye candy of watching beautiful girls run around jumping and frolicking is “entertaining”, with all that candy I just hope I’m not diagnosed with the first ever cavity of the eye.
