BCCI woes

"Deadlines don't worry us. As long as we make good money everything will be fine."

I can't believe that a BCCI official actually said this- and I am sure he thought it was a smart thing to say. While Cricinfo does not make clear who said this or in what context and when, I can't see how this could make sense. Months after a ridiculous election took place, infighting ensued, the courts got involved, and the matter then (supposedly) got resolved, we still do not know anything about Mahedra Singh's agenda, his vision or his plans to ensure Indian cricket flourishes. (and no, I don't mean financially).
The Pakistan tour is still getting finalised less than a month from its commencement, players have not received bonuses, and the telecast rights issue remains in limbo.
Ugh.

WE is the operative word here - the we denotes the BCCI office bearers, not the layers, not the organization, not the game of cricket, not anyone else - it is those paan chewing decision makers who are most important!
