The two issues are similar in that if your only concern is money, then you'd be wanting to stick with Graves and his plans. After all, the Hundred's supporters have made some pretty lurid and plausible threats about this country's cricketing future unless the counties remain committed to the new competition.

If you can see beyond short-term financial gain, and are concerned about the adverse long-term effects of his proposals on what you love, then you'd be looking for ways to leave those commitments asap. Particularly with the financial benefits looking more questionable the more they're examined.
