    The Power of Hypocrisy - an anti BCCI rant

    The Power of Hypocrisy

    The conduct of certain activities and receipt of income from these activities clearly show that these activities are totally commercial and there is no element of charity in the conduct of BCCI. It is evident that major income arises not from the game of cricket but from the business of cricket.

    one thing i have learned in life is that most brown people in the world are hypocrites and cheat. No wonder our countries are so backwards

    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    It's not about brown people. It's about the countries with integrity and professionalism and those without, which happens to fall along race lines and thus the issue is seen as one of race rather than of good governance.

    What you are saying is exactly what I am arguing against. Let's not make this about race.

    Is there no option to force BCCI to reveal their accounts ? At least under RTI ?

    I don't know. It's so ridiculous. If I use my companies credit card and spend $200, I get a call the next day asking me to justify my expense. I certainly can't be renting limos everyday and spend $400,000 over the course of six months without anyone noticing. It's so beyond ridiculous.

    And supposedly, most of these positions are honorary. They don't get paid. They do it for the love of the game. Right.

    BCCI is the best sporting organisation in India. The other sports organisations in India controlled by the government are far, far worse. You would be deranged if you were an Indian tennis fan, say, SS.

    SS in anti-BCCI shocker. It's like Bishan Singh Bedi. After a while you stop reacting because you're no longer surprised that he's shaking his fist at a cloud.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'
