Hugh Morris: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

Hugh Morris Would Rather Players Not Monkey Around On Twitter

What he said:

“It is like giving a machine gun to a monkey. It can be fantastic or it can be an absolute disaster too.”

English cricket team’s managing director, Hugh Morris, believes that Twitter is for twats.

Morris was speaking at UK Sport’s world-class performance conference in London.

Morris said:

I kind of get Twitter… it’s a great medium for pushing out good messages when it is done really well.

When it’s done poorly it is a complete and utter nightmare for those of us trying to manage and lead teams.

The ECB boss’ comments will further spur debate as to whether sportspersons are best equipped to deal directly with fans and the media.

The immediacy of Twitter can be both a boon and a curse.

What he really meant:

“Twitteratti, Monkeyrazzi, it’s all the same to me.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Let’s take this debate online—tweet me @HughMorris.”
