This is absolutely ridiculous and shambolic. After FICA's involvement and pursuit, I thought it would be just a handful of players who were yet to get paid. But, this?
BPL 2 shouldn't be staged until all the screws are tightened by the BCB. First and foremost, BCB should stick to their damn words. October 20 should be the last deadline
. If the players aren't paid in full
, dissolve the franchise. No mercy, whatsoever. Don't spare them even if it's $1 owed.
