SRT vs AA - only one winner.

Agree with the sentiments of the first post.
You just need to praise sachin one bit and you are labelled a Fanboy,but brigades for other players are ignored.
Sachin is also brought into arguments about other players continuosly with some silly and ridiculous points being made,and if you try and defend his record or anything again there is a brigade out there to label you a Fanboy.
Infact the anti-Sachin fanboy brigade is too melodramatic and Righteous as in fact there never really have been many Fanboy's on this board except one or 2.
His record speaks for itself. There's nothing wrong with comparing players, even across eras where it's very difficult. The problem arises when people don't countenance that there should even be a difference of opinion.
The great irony in your post, as with the OP, is that SRT is almost universally revered the cricketing world over. I realize this thread is designed to have a shot at a lot of Australian and English fans, but what you need to remember (and which is largely forgotten by all and sundry) is that even through the acrimony of India's last tour of Australia, Tendulkar was basically given a valedictory tour. You may not choose to believe it, but it's true.
He was cheered onto and off the field every time he batted. His milestones were applauded without exception and the public flocked to see him. So when you create a thread which implicitly bags the **** out if supporters of other countries, do try to keep that in mind.
Then do me a favour and compare and contrast it with the reaction of Indian crowds to visiting players of similar stature in the game. All 15 of them who turn up to watch. You might then think a little differently.
Then you can sod off.
