    I had a tolerance for Roebuck at the time of this thread, but I have to say the majority of his material in the light of recent events probably killed my interest for his opinion completely.

    Sidhu is now a MP and i doubt he will return to commentary,but he was sacked by espnstar in 2003 as he was too emotional and could not contain his tongue.
    One source told rediff.com there was a move to sack Sidhu, famous for his one-liners -- Sidhuisms -- for the last two months, because of two comments the Sardar made.

    One was in April, during the Bangladesh-South Africa match in Dhaka. Sidhu got into a verbal spat with fellow commentator Alan Wilkins. He is said to have sworn at Wilkins, saying, 'Don't f*** around with me,' which was captured by one of the microphones and reported to the producer.

    When contacted by rediff.com in Hong Kong, Wilkins refused to comment about the incident and said he is unaware about Sidhu's sacking.

    A month later, at the ESPN school quiz prize-distribution ceremony in Kolkata, Sidhu compared the Board of Control for Cricket in India to a chameleon, saying it lacks in transparency.

    His criticism of India skipper Sourav Ganguly during the World Cup in South Africa caused huge problems for the channel after most of the Indian players boycotted ESPN. Ganguly dismissed Sidhu as a joke after the commentator criticised him and the team on-air following the loss to Australia at the start of the World Cup campaign.

    Sidhu earned his stripes with a commentary style that was his very own, though it often defied logic. His comments evoked laughter and generated a nationwide following.

    "It is only after I left cricket that learnt the true meaning of self-belief. I started meditating for long hours. That is when all my ideas strike me," Sidhu told rediff.com in a telephone interview on Tuesday morning from his home in Patiala. "I keep a notebook next to me in which I write all the pure and pristine thoughts that I reflect on while meditating. That is what you hear in the commentary."

    "I tried to cultivate a style of my very own, be original and unique," he said. "People liked that and they called it Sidhuisms. It is the voice of the people."
    It is funny now that he called the indian selectors cowards for dropping ganguly anD laxman for this series.And if at the end of the series if you remind him of his mistake he will not tolerate it.

    Here he chased aamir sohail with a bat.
