We have lost the hosting rights of Champions Trophy 2011 (goes to Auckland, New Zealand) and likely to loose Olympic Qualifiers, if the current situation prevails? What do we do, shall we stop supporting our players/best players, who are our heroes, have won/played matches for us, if Hockey India does not consider them. Here is an argument, rather a big explanation of expectations from we fans? Written by one of we fans “Esma Hasanovic”.
Michael Nobbs (Coach Team India) is on crosshair
he doesn’t want his collar tighter & leash any shorter than they already are, both courtesy of HI…and thank god!! he doesn’t say more…trying to decipher his inconsistent mixed messages is a skill that not even the greatest detective can decode…;o)..

until the country has it’s affairs in order and makes it’s players welfare the priority, Indian hockey will have to struggle to regain their glory…history repeats itself,
Talent is talent…there are many players with talent, and if worked with that talent can be strengthened, but there are only a miniscule few that are born with the gift..otherwise, there would have been more like Dhyan Chand..and they would have already shown up in the Indian hockey community…and the few gifted ones that were there:
I have always believed that bad things happen sometimes for good things to come out of it…and I believe this is one of those times. Never know might be these current players that unite us all…I have much faith Indian Hockey will rise above because those players we chose to forget and also those we chose to remember (Dhyan Chand), shall never forget us…God works in mysterious ways.. Chak De Indian Hockey!! :o))))
