The million quid is a short term thing. There is no commitment for it to continue and even if there were it could only continue if the competition was making a large profit. It is what happens three years or so down the line that counts.

There is also the thought that as this all could have been done without franchises, why is it being done that way if not to undermine the counties? No doubt Graves's Yorkshire will survive though, so that's OK then.

You are right about prophets of doom at each change. There is an irony in people defending the T20 competition when they saw it as the end of the world when it came in. Trouble is, Jeremiahs are no more likely to be wrong all the time than Pollyannas and this change is much more risky than any previous one.
