Sports - Treading on dangerous grounds

Gone are the days when sport was an amusement or a pastime. Its assuming dangerous proportions today ( Competing with religion in terms of the hoopla and madness) that has resulted in unpardonable acts and despicable behavior.

The death of Bob Woolmer, the pakistani coach, immediately after the team's defeat is the last straw. Said to be under severe stress after the loss, Woolmer fell a victim to a sport that he loved.

The anger shown by the Paki fans and the Indian fans ( Burning effigies, throwing stones at cricketers' houses, burning posters, stalling parliament proceedings) is deplorable both in motive and in act. There are far important things to do in life than burning posters and effigies.Be a sport.



  • Being passionate about your sport and murdering because of it is taking things a bit too far.
    I wonder if we the public will ever know the full story about Bob Woolmer's death.
