The GOAT wins Laureus Sporting moment

Recommended Posts

Quote

The foundation launched the Laureus Sporting Moment 2000-2020 to public vote, which gave fans the opportunity to choose one of the winners of the prestigious Laureus World Sports Awards.

That's why he won it, no sane mind would call that WC triumph sporting moment of 2011, forget for 2 decades. Not the Indian sporting moment of the last 20 years either, that honour belongs to Abhinav Bindra no matter what opinion people have about his discipline...India's only individual Olympic gold medal. But our people are too nationalistic and don't have exposure to sports....automatically rules out other countries as well our own non-cricketers. 

 

If AMPAS carries a public vote along similar lines about movies, Kal Ho Na Ho will be the movie of 2000-20 and Karan Johar will go receive the award :dance:. Same with TV serials where Ekta Kapoor will go to the stage while Breaking Bad and Mad Men makers will be hilaoing somewhere in the crowd. 

 

@Laaloo tera trollvote aane wala hai, so take this twat :finger:

 

GOAT title makes me laugh, tics mazaak band kar yaar. How did Steve Waugh keep a straight face there :hysterical:

Well you have to be nominated to get votes. Indian janta did not ask to nominate Tendulkar’s moment. The moment was so powerful hence it made it to the nominee list and rest was piece of cake for Tendulkar to win.

GOAT ODI player. Numbers speak. When Kohli retires, I might call him. For now, he is the GOAT. Anyway, its just a cliche. I could not think of a better title to annoy some

random folks, thought GOAT might rile up some. :)

On second thoughts I can see the similarity with GOAT, both in whites and both doing what they do bestImage result for goat bending

Image result for sachin bowled

Who are these Laureus guys? This reminds me of the Miss World strategy back in 90s - trying to penetrate a booming market?

 

Anyway, am tired of this 'Cricket is a religion in India, and Tendulkar is God' s**t thrown around by white babalog and lapped up by our brown sahibs. No one ever called 'Soccer is religion of UK, with Beckham as God', or 'Michael Jordan, God of USA'. Tendulkar is a sporting icon in India, thats all. If anything, Bradman has been made into God of cricket by Anglo-Saxons, with the rest of the cricket playing world expected to worship him as greatest batsman of all time despite the fact that he almost exclusively played in just two countries - Australia and UK.

This making a player or an actor into gods is a disease in India. Once they are made into gods, anyone criticizing their god is a devil worshiper according to them and scam artists like that weasel boria muzumdar or whatever his name is will sell anything to fans in the name of their god. A lesser form of a god is hero worship. Thala as you know means leader and its attributed to Rajini and Dhoni. Rajini's fame came naturally but if you wanna nitpick he became a superstar to the 90s kids because of the "superstar yaarunu kaetta" song. Dhoni became thala due to :csk: 's PR team and media. They had to do it to be the face of CSK. Kids who are Dhoni fans or Virat fans go through the same feelings as Sachin's fans did in the 90s maybe a little lesser because Sachin was a better player and there was no one in that class in India when he played. Not the case with Dhoni or Virat.

Another poor attempt of making cricketers into gods for monetary purposes is by that fat cvnt boria who was trying to sell the book Eleven Gods and a Billion Indians: The On and Off the Field Story of Cricket in India and Beyond He co-authored Sachin's book. Nice choice because he speaks in the same squeaky tone as Sachin :phehe: I hope that book eleven gods was a total flop. If it wasn't, I will pray to Shiva to end this earth :rage:

Always amusing to see that brought up, also the BS excuse that he was possibly the greatest "sportsman" ever because of the lead he had over his contemporaries. But hey don't bring up the likes of Dhyanchand, Pele, Margaret Court, Jahangir Khan to ruin their delusions :cantstop:

That's an interesting thought. Maybe because of the "christian" west doesn't believe in other gods (but still worship them anyway). The whole ad business runs off of Beckham, Jordan and Bradman is still widely respected according to many Aussies and English as well. They keep forgetting that Bradman was a poor administrator of ACB. It took the loud mouthed Chappell, the Ian variety to give a different opinion. Still Ian Chappell is not widely regarded as a cricketing icon by many Aussies of that era. How many fans buy Beckham shirts and Jordan sneakers. If that is not hero worship, I don't know what it is. Its the same thing everywhere no matter how they spin it. It just boils down to the hypocrisy of the anglo countries. Even in Pakistan, Imran's words are seen as a cure all of all socioeconomic ills that face the padosis and that Imran can do no wrong which is not the case. That was the reason he was elected as PM. Its only because of their religious beliefs that they don't call him god but give the same adulation that Sachin receives.

I don't think we have a GOAT in cricket. Maybe Bradman (or Sobers) but even that can be challenged. I consider Sachin among the top 10 greatest cricketers of all time. 

 

Not an indictment on him, just believe that very few sports can claim to have a GOAT. Additional complexity in cricket that we have so many disciplines and formats.

Can there be a GOAT wrestler? So many weight categories, so many different styles: Freestyle. Folkstyle, Greco-Roman. Sure a guy like Aleksandr Karelin has a legit claim but can't get everyone to agree. In boxing if someone says Ali is GOAT, I can give few reasons why Sugar Ray Robinson (or even Mayweather Jr.) has a stronger claim. Sachin's dominance, achievements, legacy don't set him apart from the crowd as much as these guys, too many flaws....sorry but some harsh truths need to be laid out even if fanboys feel offended.

exactly, 'Cricket is a religion in India, Tendulkar is its God' line aligns with the condescending portrayal of India as an "irrational, polytheistic country" which worships anything & everything (West doesn't actually respect us for our diversity as the colonized intelligentsia would have you believe), while the West is "rational, scientific, structured even in matter of religion with OTG (One True God), a proper book & prophet etc."

 

Sports fans in the West are really just fans, unlike Indians and Latinos who are 'crazy freaks' - so what if Western countries actually have a phenomenon known as "groupies" where young women are conditioned to throw themselves at sports jocks and musicians as the 'normal' thing to do, where an overrated English soccer team moves around with a crazy press corps that will cover every piece of salacious gossip about players' private lives and portray players like Rooney & Beckham as GODS only to have their hopes dashed EVERY TIME by the much lower profile, but far more efficient Germans :)

agree...this GOAT thing is mostly just marketing & hype. Maybe someone like Michael Jordan could be called GOAT of basketball - again, am no basketball expert and am just going with the received wisdom from limited reading of American sports media. Personally, I consider Lara as the more exciting batsman even in Tendulkar's generation - Lara had a touch of genius, that exaggerated backlift and whiplash strokeplay....his batting against peak Aussies in 99-00 series was the some of the best test cricket I have seen.

So a 16 year old Sachin belting some of the best bowlers in their own backyard wasnt a touch of genius? Lara sucked in Australia except that one innings, Sachin dominated them both home and away

In the end he has some of the highest achievements and awards in the sports and country, including Bharat Ratna and this award now. So I wonder who is the true deluded one here. I love how you preemptly talk about offense, etc. This has been the all time strategy of Sachin detractors, usually they will say something devoid of logic and if anyone replies it will be because they are offended, etc. 

 

Everyone wh gave him those awards and regards him so highly are deluded and the handful of people who think he is over-rated must be the right ones I guess. Absolutely nothing wrong with having opinions of course. But the funny thing is when people pretend a)somehow because they go against something popular its the truth and b)they are the only objective ones and EVERYONE else is wrong or fanboys or whatever other terms are right

No one is denying that but not enough to be GOAT in my opinion. You didn't have to bring up Bharat Ratna because it has been tarnished for a long time now, SRT has enough achievements in his resume without that stupid political award.

Every time I give a contrary opinion in a Tendulkar thread a flurry of trollvotes follow, even in posts where I give genuine compliments...not talking about just this thread, based on my time here for more than half a dozen years. I have been on SM long enough to notice the tendency of Sachin fans to lose their **** every time he isn't praised to the skies, of course all sportsmen have dedicated fandoms but nowhere as sensitive as Sachinstas. This coming from someone who has often gone OTT (in a bad way) in Dhoni related topics. It is common knowledge what happened to Sharapova when she said she didn't know him. Also Sachin fans lack the sense of humour, an unfortunate Indian trait but exacerbated when it comes to him. 

 

If there is something devoid of logic correct course of action should be to ignore or counter, not be passive-aggressive. For instance here if I say the choice of Laureus was wrong or that he isn't GOAT, civilized discourse entails proving why that award was well deserved and why he is GOAT. Not going on a trollvote spree or character analysis.

the thing that stands out the most is this opinion that pagan pacifist dirty indians can be lulled by calling someone 'God' or it is ok to normalize this shitty behavior wtf is making a GOD out of a sportsperson ?? or a dirty politician etc its not normal its not OK. someone who does it is a loony.

That’s a wrong way of looking at it. We don’t have such a closed idea of god like some of the Abrahamic religions.

 

Calling Sachin a god of cricket is just praising how good he was at his skill. 


For  example would you consider the song Tujhme Rab dikhta hai as blasphemy?  It’s just an expression that the poet/lyricist is trying to convey.

 

Dravid once said on Ganguly’s  offside strokes - on offside  first there is god and then there is Saurav

 

It is just an expression. If people start building temples and actually worshipping Tendulkar on a regular basis then we  have a problem.

 

I know @Gollum will spam the response with pictures of some idiots doing Yagna with Sachin’s pic :laugh: but they are what they are idiots.

 

In fact Sachinistas  on this forum like @New guy @maniac @Laaloohave made fun of Sachin’s political stint .

 

Its just an expression and we should be proud to be liberal enough to use god as an expression for something that is magnificent in this case Sachin’s skill.

Calling Sachin a god of cricket is just praising how good he was at his skill. 


For  example would you consider the song Tujhme Rab dikhta hai as blasphemy?  It’s just an expression that the poet/lyricist is trying to convey.

 

Dravid once said on Ganguly’s  offside strokes - on offside  first there is god and then there is Saurav

 

It is just an expression. If people start building temples and actually worshipping Tendulkar on a regular basis then we  have a problem.

Who cares if some thin skinned bhakts get their panties in a bunch? 

 

Srt is at least real unlike the many other figments of imagination that people get so offended on behalf of. :giggle:
