    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Haven't seen a single IPL match from start to finish. Actually havent seen more than two overs at a time in the last six years. And I am supposed to be a cricket addict.

    yep....Azhar Mahmood is now a pommie
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Never seen more than 2 overs of a game myself and that was in the bookies. Maybe I shouldn't say that.

    Hardly watch any of the English domestic 20/20 stuff so not likely to watch it with all foreigners am I.

    Surprised that Sree would be involved in this. Isn't he already rich?

    Anyway innocent until proven guilty.

    Can't believe when this is used as a defence, yeah rich people have no greed, stands to reason.
    Do I contradict myself?

    No, it's not an excuse - but you have to remember, until recently (and even now) many non professionals don't make that much money. Risking your career for a $100k when your salary is a Sreesanth level $700k (or something like that) is very different to risking your career for a $100k when your salary is $20k (and many players make less than that - obviously it's different, with the cost of living being lower, but it's not enough to set yourself up after your playing days). If I was making the IPL minimum, and someone offered me 5x my yearly salary for one spot fixing, and doing it for a season or two could set me, and my family, up for the rest of my life - could I say I wouldn't be tempted? No. Would I do it? I would hope that I wouldn't, but the temptation would surely be there. On the other hand, if I had Tendulkar level endorsements, and I was already set up for life, I doubt the money would make a difference - at that point I'd be caring more about my legacy and such.

    Obviously Sreesanth is neither living in poverty or is set up like Sachin - who knows what the state of his finances are - but I'm sure they do play a role in that decision...
