I'm sick and tired of all the player-haters that take every opportunity to diss the guy. So this is a thread to defend him against such undeserved abuse.
The first problem people have with him is arrogance.
Dont give me that sh!t. Since when has arrogance been a bad thing for a sportsman? This guy is a competitor, he has spirit, he has testosterone, he has BALLS. It makes him a better player and a better leader.
The same way that arrogance made botham a great player and the same way that arrogance has put Flintoff and McGrath and Hayden where they are. Yet people do not have a problem with these guys.
I mean, even Indian supporters diss him for being arrogant. Come on. If you want your country to be represented by pathetic little soft guys who say never mind that we lost, I guess we're not good enough - then I offer you my sympathy. I guess you have no drive and no idea how to achieve and be successful.
Ganguly is the most successful Indian captain ever. It is his fierce spirit that has brought india so far since the 90s. And his stubborn determination that has seen players such as Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Kaif, Harbhajan Singh, Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan and Ashish Nehra become key performers in the side.
So why do people constantly berate him for his passion and belief?
