As I said, it's easy for me to say. I suppose it's the inevitable result of two divisions. The days of staying at one county for life are long gone. Eventually all the best players will gravitate to the top division and the difference between the two divisions will widen.

P. S. My reasoning was based on Broad having a good future as an England player - I would expect players with little prospect of playing for England to be looking to make as much as possible from county cricket. As has been pointed out re Broad, though, nothing's certain, he can't take an England career for granted, and I acknowledge he has to think about all eventualities in choosing a county.
