I’m not a big fan of the game, I find it slow and boring. These days I’m hooked, more so for the drama of IPL than the game itself. It is * supposed * to be a gentlman’s game. It is anything but. My facebook wall resembles a virtual bloody battleground, people ready to kill each other over team loyalties. Even more juicy is the drama , where do we start ?
First there were the players who got caught in the sting operation. Really? You are all already overpriced in the auction. You want more? Maybe its silent rebellion for being hawked like cattle during the auction?
Then there was the SRK circus. I really don’t know the sides of the story but boy it sure makes good for prime time drama. If they really touched his daughter and pushed her around, I’m surprised he stopped at badmouthing. Me in his place, someone touching my kid would have sore body parts to nurse.
And now the Luke scandal. This one appals me a little. The RCB team owner, whose only claim to fame is a famous last name, claims the woman is a slut because she invited the player over to her room. I think I just did a time travel to the 1950s. Mr Mallya - some thoughts to ponder over - Women invites man into room != please molest me. Women invites / talks to man != Men being absolved of the crime. Is she promiscuous, maybe. That is her choice, as is her choice to go complain. What makes you the moral authority to comment on her choices? Because you are such a saint yourself? Pot, meet kettle.
Gentleman’s game apparently. * Roll eyes * . The husband is surely amused by my daily soap opera updates ;)
