The ICB should step in and impose the maximum fine on India

The International Cricket Board should step in and impose the maximum
possible fine on India for withdrawing from the tour against Sth
Africa.

To say they are withdrawing because a TV deal fell through is piss
weak.

Australia withdrew from touring Zimbabwe because they were banned by
our Government (a stance against Robert Mugabe's genocide).

India should still tour for the benefit of Irish Cricket. It's time
the 'Asian cricket mafia' stopped trying to run the game. They can't
play it, and they can't run it.

Bring back the good old days...and have the POMS run the game. At
least that will stop all the lying and cheating (eg changing laws to
legitimise the actions of sub-continental chuckers).

If GAA hadn't banned the game to Irish people for years, then Ireland
would maybe have been a very hard team to beat these days.
As it stands today, the ECB seem to want to ban Ireland and Scotland
from the FP trophy next season. The ECB seem to want all the revenue
from the tv on matches and Ireland only get the gate on home matches,
which is a poor sum of €uros.
The Irish senior cup final gets much less than 1000 spectators, while
the all Ireland Gaelic fotball final gets around 80 000 spectators.
What's that as a % of the total population ?

Aus chickened out and SA stepped in, now Ind have chickened out, and I
hope that WI step in.
