    i have to lean towards MK on this. i mean you only need to look at what happened with Ric Charleworth trying to help them out. He took the project on as he believed like a lot of people that India are the sports sleeping giant, the talent is there but there style of play, tactics and fitness just need a little bit of tweaking. But he didn't realise at the time how much politics would be involved. one faction asking him to help and the other telling him they didn't want him, then being told 'you can't pick this player, because he plays the same position as this important guy's son' and then being told the exact opposite by someone else.
    i'm sure in the end once he decided to leave his parting comment was something like 'they need to sort out their housekeeping before they can sort out their game' - that's not an exact quote but you get the gist.

    This may shock you but I have been to India, being half Indian has it's credentials...

    The name, "Amish" isn't Maori...

    and? Does your half Indian heritage, youre 17 yrs on this earth and youre 1 visit to India make you a expert on Indian Hockey!

    The current situation even has the FIH troubled, and even the great Ric Charlesworth is unable to break the stubborness, arrogance and personal agendas that are rife in and amongst Indian Hockey!

    It needs a huge cultural shift - and one which seeds have yet to be sown by anyone!

    I have visted India on several occasions, at least six.

    Another cultural shift might be 1947 all over again...

    But because sport is such a large part of Indian culture then it would effect nearly everyone.

    Indirectly or not, look at the IPL.

    Society goes wild over the sport.

    Waxxed give 1, just 1 actual fact that backs up any change in the (failing) set-up there?

    I want west ham to win the premiership...repeating endlessly "it could happen" doesn't make it so!

    One day in the future, in the very far future india will be a force to be reckoned with again (that's not any insider knowledge that's the law of averages) why can you not just see what any rational person can? There is no sign of that change they need, therefore no sign of improvement in the foreseeable future!

    its only an allegation at the moment, but have to agree with the statement "disgraceful", just for the allegations to be made says alot about the state of indian hockey, wrong wrong wrong. It just goes from bad to worse with indian hockey

    Again another hopelessly pointless post from our friend in NZ!

    Bravo young man - clearly flirting on the boundaries of becoming pond-life!

    Waxxed - dont drag me into this - ive tried to stay on topic as much as possible.

    Only your inappropriate and pointless responses have been the only pollluter to this thread.
    Youve very littlel positive to contribute to the the thread, as with most of your contributions.

    You mock people for not taking the forum seriously - when a lot of people do.
    And now we have a new forum member who has had to witness this idiotic and pointless arguement, simply because you have nothing at all to add.

    JimmyBhogal - we can only apologise for Waxxed, he thinks he's being funny when clearly he's not. What are your thoughts on the Indian Hockey situation?

    It would be good to get a new point of view.
