  • Why are you guys hating on Cricket. I love this sport. Its amazing! I even started working on US Cricket Wikipedia articles. US Cricket is like our football... shit and corrupt and yet its amazing.

    I even loved how during the World Cup I would wake up at 3:30 in the morning just to watch a game with my dad. I even loved when I stayed home just to see India play Pakistan. Those are the days.

    well said @shankar

  • Still. I hate when I go on Facebook and people cursing the sport. Now you all know what it is like being a Soccer fan in America and having 4 SPORTS! YES 4 SPORTS! Ahead of football.

    I still hate this sport BUT just goes to show you that if you can create a good marketed league with good structure that is willing to develop and work by the book people will jump in to help.

    Of course not the case with Indian Football (Soccer) where are structure is shit. 14 teams all losing money, 2 teams getting relegated (usually the ones that care for marketing), no champions trophy, unable to play in the AFC Champions League, bad 2nd Division. I can go on but this explains it all.

    The Indian Premier League, World Series Hockey and now (sad to admit this) Elite Football League of India are ahead of us! Time for the All India Football Federation to get up and do something. It has been 16 years.

    A-League, MLS, J.League and I-League all started around the same time (A-League was 2005 actually) and yet the I-League is 16 years later far, far behind. Look at the IPL and WSH. IPL is 5 years old, WSH is not even a year old and yet they can kill 16 year old I-League 100 times if they wanted.

    Something needs to be done... NOW!

    BFI and IMG are planning to come with their league in 4 years, which i assume is obvious...but more interesting is the statement in this wiki page that they are planning to organise their own school and college leagues as well
    is it gonna happen???if so are IMG guys having similar plan for football as well???this could be interesting to know for me
