Gavaskar: no more my idol


Sunil Gavaskar’s gone nuts. To quote an example of an Australian cricketer (who’s memory I won't tarnish by naming) who died in a pub brawl and use that to show how badly behaved Australian cricketers are is the closest to a brain dead statement I have come across from any human being that one thought was intelligent.
And an individual that I greatly respected.


He can do the right thing, and apologise. Or do the wrong thing, and not apologise.

And cease to be an idol to people like me.

So Very very true.

Ad hominem fallacy ?

Sunny has indeed recanted (almost) his words on Hookes. Now, as you said, that is the right thing to do.

So, Sunny will surely be an idol for a host of us (of course we long to the 80s generation).

Oops sorry, the 'long' in the second para should read 'belong'.
