    That's a good point but I don't know if guilt tripping a cricket player, however overvalued he might be, for Mallya's brazenness is the done thing. It just doesn't sit right. Appeal to the entire RCB team, IMO. They're obviously not going to write out a cheque to the airline employees, but at least it publicises the issue and shames Mallya. Shouldn't put it all on the one person who's had a stroke of luck.

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

    Hypothetical question:

    Kohli is currently 25 years and 102 days old. There's a young Sachin Tendulkar of the exact same age around, i.e, he's at the stage of his career where he's played his famous twin desert storm innings against Australia 3 months ago.

    Who's the hotter property at the IPL?

    Tendulkar.

    picked at 16, had more legend surrounding him.

    Fair point, but I feel Yuvraj is much closer to the Indian cricket fans than other players who have been bought, and unlike Gayle and Kohli, who have been retained, he's been bought only in this auction. Indeed, they should appeal to the entire RCB team, and maybe they have, but the appeal to Yuvraj was the most publicised one. I do feel at least the West Indians, who have had problems of non-payment with their board, should support them. None of these players will go bankrupt if they turn down this braggart's money.

    The investment that goes in education to prepare you for a career here is not small money. To spend so much, and be paid nothing for months, is not funny at all. That braggart has no business sense, and only enjoys posing before cameras, with glasses of alcohol and models/celebrities. Instead of running his airline properly, all he did is try to ground every competing airline in India, and when his airline went sick, he looted Government banks, who had no business funding loss-making airlines with public money. Then he begged for a bailout. I do hope the players understand this.

    Yuvraj has been paid a hefty amount. That's more than one fifth the total squad cost. If he withdrew from the team or the event, the impact will be profound. While most IPL players, even at the bottom end, get paid a lot of crazy big money, payment is still very unequal.and a few others may need the money, but I don't believe any cricketer who has nothing to do with Kingfisher should get money that KFA employees deserve to be paid.

    Can teams still recruit players using private contracts or something?
