    Amusing editorial in one of the gulf newspapers today where the author argues that, based on Yuvi earning $8 million a year, cricket is now one of the few sports where earnings are based on marketing hype rather than performance

    He claimed that the only comparable was Beckham in football but at least he was good enough to be at least world-class if not one of the world's best

    Sachin Tendulkar is 'the holder of numerous offensive records' apparently. Always amusing when Americans try to explain cricket.

    Personally, I find all the runs he scored against England very offensive

    Yuvi makes about $5m, but yes, the point is true. His ability, even staying within an Indian cricket context, does not put him in the top five players. Indian players, let alone world players. He wouldn't make the 5th Test World XI.

    Would probably make a T20 world XI though, arguably anyway.

    Haha yes, a fair point. These aren't the highest paid cricketer's at all! They're the highest paid players of simplified baseball!

    Tendulkar will continue to make mad amounts of money even after he retires. Probably more than when he was playing.

    He's a brand name like Jordan. As India's economy expands, so will his endorsements.

    indians also like to spit on their own idols. one unpopular move and sachin's effigy would be burning in every street corner. good on him that he is milking it dry when he is on top.

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    You could argue that a lot of Indians don't respect Gandhi like they should but that is just executing their democratic right to free opinions.

    Amitabh is an interesting case. India backed him and prayed for him when he got injured shooting for Janzeer. Yet no one came to his aid when he was in a financial crisis. Amitabh became a political figure and made a lot of wrong decisions and India still embraced him back.

    Azharuddin is back in the society parties in Hyderabad after is match fixing scandal.

    Tendulkar is Tendulkar. I really doubt India will ever hate him. I know you disagree with me as you have seen heroes fall in front of your eyes but I have to see it to believe that people will really be against Tendulkar.

    EDIT - SCRATCH all that. When he was going through a bad phase, so many people wrote him off, it was not funny. You are right.

    ha ha. before i could respond, you have added the note.

    you know what? i am actually okay with the public opinion changing either way on anyone. i have been to certain countries where the country's leader is treated above law and with so much reverence that people are practically brainwashed to worship their king/president from childhood. at least indians are free enough to question anybody. what i dont like is the extremes they go to in praising or dissing a person. a bit more equanimity would not hurt, IMO.

    sachin will always be liked by the majority, like kapil is despite some serious allegations on his integrity. what i am in doubt about is whether he would make more money post retirement.
