We Indians have developed a habit to elevate Cricketers to Stardom and on the very next day we do not mind dumping them in a humiliating manner. This must stop because either of these actions do no good to Cricket or to the Cricketers either.
I do not agree with the manner in which Ganguly has been and is being humiliated.
As of today there are more than 2000 comments on the question, âWas it right to drop Ganguly?â almost all of which are in favor of Ganguly. This is within a span of 10 to 15 days! During this period postings in response to other questions on the message board had almost stopped. This flooding of one-sided messages on Ganguly issue looks like a big morcha (in favor of Ganguly) and rasta roko (for other postings), internet style, arranged by Ganguly supporters. The facility to Contact the editor is also missing for (only) Ganguly question. It is there for all other questions. This appears to have been managed by the Ganguly lobbyists to suppress all the complaints from non-supporters for not publishing their messages and protests against misuse of message board for lobbying. It amounts to sheer tampering and cannot be done without active cooperation of an insider. Ganguly supporters must be having their man among the rediff staff.
Have selectors forgotton that sourav is having better test avarage than sachin during last ten tests ? How can they forgate that p[rince of kolkata do have 15,000+ runs behind him in international cricket. his contribition as the skipper should be kept in mind. tultul chatterjee behala, ko0lkata
For all the subjects under "Message Board" the "Article Tools" contain "Contact the Editor". Why isn't it there for this subject? It also appears that while excessive postings appear for this subject the postings on other subjects have already been stopped. I suspect there is excessive lobbying for Ganguly.
