Given that I do NOT follow the IPL I was not aware that we were AGAIN embroiled in yet another cricket match fixing uproar! This beyond the pale.

I happened to visit BBC yesterday to see what they had on THE Queen’s 60th when I saw the above article. I was shocked and angry.

Some of you, devoid of cynicism and possible exposure to corporate high-finance, may jump up and down when I say that this match fixing COULD in the end have repercussions on Willow and TEN Cricket. The underlying connection is MONEY.

Cricket floats on a huge sea of money. The TV companies that own the rights to cricket, of course, have a lot to do with this money. Even if they are in NO WAY involved with the match fixing all this money is interconnected.  So, I think there might be repercussions — and by that I only mean possible lack of match coverage because contracts get pulled or the money supply dries up.

What has happened with TEN Cricket and the U.S., i.e., DISH and DirecTV, has all to do with money. They want more money. I can now see Willow and TEN asking for even MORE money. So all of this is not good.

Check the links at the bottom of the BBC article above.

Stay tuned. I am going call DISH in a couple of hours. [+3 time difference].
