well . pilot, gullu, opee etc are parents given "daknam" which we all have. No player has a title like "juari" like ponting has, it would be embarrassing

what is embarrasing and worng in bangladesh might not be here in australia....
its just the difference in culture i guess....

pokies n lottos r pretty big here..
and almost every oz bets on the melboure cup...( horse racin in melbourne...) from pm howard to average joe in the street...

now...horse racin is even banned in our country...cuz its agaisnt the religion..right ??

there is no right or wrong....
its just where u r and how u see it...

I just wanted to correct someone's use of the word "Tubby"- he/she didn't know who it was originally meant for and the history behind it.
I know about Punter, Professor, Warnie, Gilli etc etc!
