So apparently our superstars will do a meet and greet with fans in South Florida. They will squeeze this dinner during their USA leg of the tour.

It will cost around $200-300 to meet and snap a selfie with these superstars.

Shakib is getting $10k. Tamim/Mushfiq/Riyad getting $5k each from the organizer.

source - one of the event organizer is a family friend.

if I had that much money to spend, I would meet and slap each of these "superstars" personally. or at least say something at their face.

also these payments are mostly done on cash. thus the players doesn't need to pay taxes. then they go on shopping spree and buy stuff for themselves and families.

Spending $200-$300 on these bolods are bit too much. How on earth they still have so much demand after getting thrashed by Afg? Shameless bolods

that's why i want to know how they got in touch. Looks like they are only spending 25k (maybe an extra $500 on dinner for the players) so they only need like 84 fans to sign up just to break even.

through their agents I guess.

these organizers bring in musicians and other celebs from BD on a regular basis. they had LRB and Miles couple of months ago. so they have their connections.

and our cricket superstars are also eager to do these for some quick money. so their agents are in regular contact with these organizers.

I can tell you an anecdote of Shakib during the 2010 tour of England when he was just becoming a bit of a star.

It was during the practice match against Surrey at the Oval. He wasn't playing that game. He was standing in the players' balcony and some of us sitting under the balcony politely requested him to come down to take some pictures. His reply was "Onek lomba tour bhai. Shamne onek chobi nawar chance paiben. Disturb koiren na." Just contrast this with a global superstar such as Salah.

Back on topic, I would think 10 times before spending even $20 for taking selfies with these guys but to each his own.

I wonder if I can convince Shakib to go on a US-Canada tour with me.

$100 and you get to stare at him for 5 seconds
$200 and you get to greet him assalamualaikum
$300 and he will greet back walaikum assalam
$500 for autographs
$800 and he will utter the phrase "(your name here) bhai, ami jani apni amar number 1 fan"
$1000 and he will have dinner with you (you pay for your own)
$5000 and he will spend the night with your wife you cuckolded beta male

now how do i get in touch with Shakib's agent?

the blame lies mostly with the fans. they will take some pics and post them on facebook and brag about it. it is us who gives these players such fame and relevance. amra joti patta na ditam taile egula eto futani marte parto nah. tai nah bk bhai. apnei bolen. eta ki hok kotha nah?

Is it not illegal in US this kind of cash dealing?

So Shakib et all will walk away with min.. 5k cash? without needing to pay any tax?

Not sure how it works... but its sounds fishy.

mufi_02
July 2, 2018, 12:56 PM
cash dealing isn't illegal. not reporting such income and avoiding taxes is.

of course it is fishy. just off the books. if anything, the organizers will issue a check to a bank in BD. thus no income is reported in US.

That's very basic money laundering. Paying these guys through a BD bank account, and then collecting dollars from a bunch of stupid event goers. In a circle some BD money is getting transferred to the US in dollars without any tax or records. I mean the organizers doing the laundering.

But all it takes a single phone call...a simple phone call from the right person, with a very light points. And it will get the Feds to look into the organizers.

There are enough number of people who can make that phone call.

Some guys use this business model, I personally hate it!

Fans pay for tickets, for TV, for internet, and most of all just by following the player which results in endorsements, and ad money, which helps fund tournaments, some of which goes into player's pockets a la huge salaries. There is also merchandise, supporting businesses of the player, an infinite number of business models just by mass awareness of a figure.

But to charge for each autograph and pic is so cringe worthy. Lonzo Ball of the LA Lakers did the same thing, and I thought of him much less after that. Same goes for these "superstars", I will hold them to the same standard. Shame!
