why you want to shift attention...?

shared by straight point on Saturday, September 11, 2010

look around almost everybody is welcoming champions league (CLT20) as the savior of cricket... the much needed refreshing shift of attention cricket needed from spot fixing saga...

why we would want to shift attention from spot-fixing when the time is ripe to nip it in the bud...?

why you want to just do the first aid with supporting dose of painkiller to do away the pain when its really is the time to operate...?

painkillers never heal the wound... the faith that was the first and biggest casualty... painkillers just takes the pain of being cheated away from us... the attention gets diverted and this is exactly what the incompetent authorities are waiting for... the moment the attention is shifted they will pounce on the opportunity to create the illusion of action...

they will keep on throwing painkillers like a bait to fans hoping to get much needed time for negotiations to appease and protect their vested interests and we as fan would keep on falling to these baits coz they know we don't have options...

but if ever there was time ripe for over-reactions in cricket... this is the time...

cricket will be played... there won't be dearth of it... the upcoming season is full of it... and as a fan i am ready to do away with some of the side shows that are being run in the name of cricket, the pundits are already proclaiming as welcome shift of attention, if it leads to some concrete, if not conclusive, actions to restore the lost faith...

Who cares for Champions League? Here you have a larger issue that is crying for attention. Agree wholeheartedly, can't delay the surgery and allow it become fatal.

what we are hearing from pundits instead is that it is welcome shift of attention...

I totally agree with it. Like you I am also a great fan of this great game but things must have to be taken seriously, like you said we're using a painkiller when we need someone to operate and this IS the time for operation not of prolonging the problem by taking painkillers!
