QUOTE OF THE DAY: On drugs and match-fixing

Couple recent revelations about drugs and match-fixing in everything from cycling to soccer and from boxing to all the pointy ball codes, with the modern proliferation of so many giggle games and meaningless sporting contests promoted simply in order to get bums on seats regardless of the bums interest in the contest—with all that in mind, this comment from today’s Footy Almanac seems to hit the mark:

“The more meaningless the game is, the more open it will be to the match-fixers.  Something that applies across all codes.”
        Sal Ciardulli, “A big couple of days in sport,” THE FOOTY ALMANAC

Agreed.

Be very suspicious if the Black Caps start winning. Their talent-pool is as shallow as a carpark puddle.
