    Empty broken down stadiums, dancing girls, no spectators is what comes to mind... Where is the infrastructure to hold this so called top class event...

Look at it from a realist perspective, we have no infrastructure, the quality of Indian players is really, really below par (even in terms of Asia, forget our Asian rankings, Hong Kong, Palestine, Singapore, and Indonesia are ahead of us.), and the fan support for domestic football is also still very low with only a few places actually being able to attract fans on and off the field.</div><div style="font-family: Arial, Verdana; font-size: 10pt; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal;"><br></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana" size="2">Also what "marquee" players are available? All the top, top marquees like Yossi Benayoun or Stefan Ishizaki are all going to go to MLS, A-League, China, or the Middle-East before they step into India.</font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana" size="2"><br></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana" size="2">Also this is only 2-months long, what development are you going to get in 2 months. People will watch and forget it... or, even worse, will follow this league closely and not pay attention to the I-League.</font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana" size="2"><br></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana" size="2">There are just to many negatives.</font></div>

    <br><div><br></div><div>Not the same. Hockey and Cricket had many aspects which just will not work for football. They had the best stars, the big money, the big amazing stadiums. Football can not compete... at least not yet.</div>
