Default New Addition to Darrel Hair Saga: $500,000 to quit umpiring

Interesting addition. Hmm.. now it makes some sense.
Darrell Hair offered to resign as an umpire in exchange for a payment of $500,000, the International Cricket Council has revealed.

More from BBC

Now I understand Ranatunga's comment that Hair does everything on a commercial purpose

Interesting quote from the report, Malcom Speed is not assuring Hair and everything might not go Hair's way.


"Darrell Hair has been in a difficult position since Sunday and as a result of this disclosure that position has been made more difficult,"

"I have said to him that he is not sacked, he is not suspended, and he has not been charged.
"I also said to him that I didn't guarantee that each of those three positions would be maintained indefinitely."

He should get his ___ FIRED and get paid nothing! Umpires get $500,000/4rs to raise an index finger? If so i want in on the profession.

This is BS - still doesn't solve the real issue - whether or not he has proof that Pakistan had cheated. ICC is a [edited], how can they offer such amount of money to this man after all this controversy?

HB, ICC hasn't yet offered anything, this is the offer made by Hair to ICC.

It's the other way around, He told the ICC that if they give him 500,000 that he'd quit

Mos probably. Speed's comment represent something different from their previous stand.

exactly. i guess people on this thread are not reading the article before posting, or misunderstanding the contents. icc didn't offer him anything - he is the one sending emails to the icc asking for money. that is why i'm so confused. lokta pagol howe gelo naki?

Here is the full transcript of Darrel Hair's letter

Transcript of Darrell Hair's email
August 25, 2006
From Darrell Hair
Sent Tuesday 22nd August 2006
To Doug Cowie
Subject The way forward
Doug,
Just to firm up what we discussed earlier this evening. I appreciate the ICC may be put in a untenable position with regards to future appointments and having taken considerable time and advice, I make this one-off, non-negotiable offer.
I am prepared to retire/stand down/relinquish my position on the elite panel to take effect from 31st August 2006 on the following terms:
1 A one-off payment to compensate the loss of future earnings and retain a payment over the next four years which I believe would have been the best years I have to offer ICC and world umpiring. This payment is be the sum of [US dollars] 500,000 - details of which must be kept confidential by both parties. This sum to be paid directly into my account by 31st August 2006.
2 ICC may announce the retirement in any way they wish, but I would prefer a simple 'lifestyle choice' as this was the very reason I moved from Australia to settle in the UK three years ago.
3 No public comment to be made by me as to possible reasons for the decision.
4 This offer in no way precludes me taking legal action and/or instigating libel suits against various sections of the electronic and print media for comments made either previously or in the future.
5 This in no way precludes me taking civil action (and exercising my rights as a resident of the UK in any court of law and by any other avenue open to me) against any organisation or persons currently part of ICC and in particular, members of the Pakistan cricket team and the Pakistan Cricket Board.
I reiterate this is a once only offer and if I fail to obtain your agreement I shall continue to be available under the terms of my current contract till March 31 2008 to fulfil umpiring appointments as and when ICC sees fit in any country at any time in any series or matches involving any affiliated teams.
I would also insist that my ongoing contracted employment continue in its current form until such time as an ICC performance assessment deems me to be no longer able to perform the duties to the high class expected of an international umpire.
Would you please let me know at your earliest convenience of your acceptance or otherwise of this offer.
Sincerely,
Darrell Hair

The actual letter starts like this " Just to firm up what we discussed earlier this evening"... i think he had a similar discussion with ICC reps and asked for some kinda compensation if he retires. And, then the ICC people asked him to put it down in writing. Now, this gives icc new ammo to reduce his role. Since, ICC backed all of Hair's action until now, they could not take any action against him.

-my conspiracy theory!

He is a lawyer no doubt. Now he is threatening the ICC. lol.

ja aro pa chat. ICC deserves threat like this. All remains for Pakistan to file a lawsuit against Hair and ICC for penalizing without evidence and "maanhani" case.

Miraz and cricman: dawat roilo... come over and we'll watch Reservoir Dogs and may be some SP eppies. I also have an extensive collection of Cricket matches in which Hair officiated.

This payment is be the sum of [US dollars] 500,000 - details of which must be kept confidential by both parties.

Not so confidential now is it? How much does he earn anyway?

Will ICC even they deal with the allegations raised against him?

Reaction to Hair revelations
'It's hard to see how Darrell Hair can umpire again'
Cricinfo staff
August 25, 2006
Reaction to the revelations that Darrell Hair offered to resign as an elite umpire has brought a swathe of reaction. Here is a selection
"I am dumbfounded. I cannot believe what has transpired but I guess he realises the consequences now."
A Pakistan camp insider
"It's hard to see how Darrell Hair can umpire at any future international match. They have made his position untenable now. To imagine he can umpire down the line in international matches is hard to see. It seems extraordinary when you consider that Inzamam-ul-Haq has been charged on two counts - one of ball-tampering, for which nobody can find any evidence, and secondly for bringing the game into disrepute on the back of the first charge. So poor old Inzy finds himself under two charges, but Darrell Hair, after these extraordinary letters, finds himself under no charge whatsoever "
Former England captain and Sky Sports commentator Mike Atherton
"Darrell Hair was probably advised to do what he has done. He was under a huge amount of pressure. It didn't help when he had the Pakistan team saying they wouldn't have Darrell Hair as an umpire again and Bangladesh following suit. It's not the sort of thing you need."
Former England captain Mike Gatting
"It will be very hard for Darrell Hair to umpire at not just international level but also first-class level."
Former England batsman Allan Lamb
"He does what he thinks is right regardless of the consequences. My immediate reaction was 'typical Darrell'."
ICC general manager cricket Dave Richardson
"I am absolutely shocked and stunned to hear what is happening and it all takes some believing. There have been controversies going back through the history of cricket and the closest would be 'Bodyline' in 1933 - but never anything like this. It is a very, very sad time for cricket and there is no doubt our great game has been badly hurt. But as in the past, I am sure it will eventually get over it. It was Darrell's decision to do what he did and it has undoubtedly created problems for him.
"The hierarchy must make the decision in due course but with that sort of money involved things are looking bad for him. It is looking like the charges are going to be dropped. It is looking in favour of Pakistan now and it is my regret that it ever came to this in the first place. "Everybody should have used a little bit of common sense, tried to finish the Test match then thrashed it out behind closed doors."
Dickie Bird, the former Test umpire
"This is between ICC and Darrell Hair. It doesn't concern us. Our biggest issue is that we want to play in front of British crowds and we decided that at 9.30 this morning. He [Hair] backed out of what he said to the ICC, the offer. He says one thing and then another. What he is thinking and how it will affect us I do not know."
Pakistan team manager, Zaheer Abbas

It's becoming so clear, Hair wanted to go out with a bang + a large sum of money to enjoy the rest of his life. If that's not good enough reason for to ICC take the right action, the reputation of this "gentlemen's" game and ICC itself will be down the drains.
