Well done, Hayden

After my post on IPL brand of tribalism, there have been some interesting developments. Hayden has been reprimanded for referring to Harbhajan as an obnoxious little weed. There is much discussion in the media.

On behalf of the fans of Chennai Super Kings, I would like to voice my protest at the treatment being meted out to Hayden, one of our star players. If the Mumbai team thinks that one of their members can continue to be an obnoxious weed, but one of our players cannot say so, they are sadly mistaken. As for you, Dhoni, can you please shut up and stop supporting Harbhajan?. Hell man, we have paid you Rs 6 crores and we expect you to get along amicably with your Chennai team mates, without bad-mouthing them.

And, will Shahrukh Khan please tell his auction prize, Ishant Sharma, to be a man and step into the ring, as suggested by Chennai star, Hayden, so that the matter can be settled in a gentlemanly way?

Ottayan said...

Honestly, what you say may come true. @ years down the line, we may be divided on the lines of the IPL franchisee.

Cheers.

Chennai Super Kings -- Yuk what a stupid name. My IPL tribalism is dead because of the name. I wish to know if I am alone in my dislike of this name. Gawd,it can be more original or have some link to our great city. Suggest a good name and we will all write to Mr. N. Srinivasan and ask him for a change.

Raj said...

Ottayan, I am afraid so.

Usha, yes dhoni hitting own wicket.

karthick, thanks.

sankar, the name is now cast in stone,my friend. Chennai Super Kings, it will be, whether you like it or not,
