Sanz in "cynically using the Mumbai tragedy as an excuse to spout bile at Pakistanis in general" shocker.

"[I]I'd heard prior to the auction that franchises were being advised not to bid for Pakistani players, as the players from Pakistan would not be issued with visas by the Indian government, and that is precisely what has happened" LINK
makes sense , the franchisees got a tip that the Indian Gov was not gonna issue the visa's , so they ignored the bids
Wasim is there because the IPL still needs the rating.. he might be there doing commentating on a couple of matches so just people of pakistan in pakistan tune in..
it is funny reading some of these comments from indians supporters..Supporting IPL as if IPL is representing india.. let me make this clear.. what IPL is doing doesn't represent what indian people thinks..and finally what low life politicians and government officials of pakistan and india think about this issue don't represent the opinion of average pakistani and indian people..So i have no idea was Sanz and other indian supporters are taking IPL's side and presenting the worst excuses ever.. the best one is the one that has mentioned about the terriorst attack on the same indian hotel in Mambia where the auction was taken.. he is somehow linking pakistani cricketers to the terrirost attack of 2008..this is similar to blameing Tigar Wood for the diseaster in Haiti.. Just because the guy slept with a couple of women.. he is responsible for the Haiti diseaster..I bet Sanz is going to come up with another rediclous excuse similar to this.
What a load of bull ****. How many state sides in the Australian big bash had Pakistani players btw? It was a domestic T20 tournament that had slots for overseas players too. If the players were as 'god like' as some of the posts here claim to be, the teams should have surely played them in all games. The truth is, the players are awesome when they fire, but it is far too inconsistent and I don't see any player other than Umar Akmal and Afridi getting a consistent run in any side ahead of other national players. It was a fair business decision.
Skillful troll is skillful.
RIP Craigos. Owe you a beer.:(
There's a lot of silly crap going on. However, to be fair, Pakistani politicians, already barking about discrimination, should realise they are least partially responisble themselves.
Pakistan (or rather, its politics) has built its own reputation of utter inreliability. From an IPL business perspective, there is simply a huge risk in spending your money on Pakistan players.
No IPL team would deny the arrival of Afridi. But being just one, relatively likely, brain fart away from a political dicission he cannot join your team, doesn't make things easier.
Doesn't mr Jakhrani understand that when he, or any other official of the Pakistani ministries of sports, interior and foreign affairs, most people in the world don't trust them to uphold their word?Originally Posted by Aijaz Hussain Jakhrani, the federal sports minister of Pakistan
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

Check out this awesome e-fed:

If you are going to bring all that then you know how the discussion is going to get. I have no intrest in discussing politics and terrorism with you or any of the Pakistani member here as long as you do not start the discussion and start throwing random accusations. And I do hear opinion of average Pakistani people, some of them are speaking here on the matter and it is mostly bull****. Not one of you has come up with any sensible post on the issue so far. Make some sane post and you will hear respectful response otherwise you hear what you deserve.
I am jsut appalled at the outrage by Pak members for something so trivial.
