Default A call for civility and common decency for us sports fans

We are mostly Bangalis. We are emotional and hotheaded and we get carried away very easily. As easily as we adulate our heroes and elevate them to lofty grandeur, we tear them from their pinnacle and unleash on them our pent up hate devoid of 'manners'.

Yes, we are hypercritical and it's alright to be hypercritical. But is it alright to be rude and insulting to someone? When did it become fashionable to denigrate someone just because you do not like him?

Just look through the posts in the Ashraful thread. How many of you can truly say - yes, I have been decent in my post(s).

Remember the Henry James standard. Only three things in life are important, James said:

Quote:
"The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind."
At least, let us not be unkind.

Bashing is ok. But not when it goes to an unreasonable level.
But Ash bashing here in BC is anything but reasonable.
People openly pray for his bad performance when he gets picked.
Then he is damned to hell, whatever his performance is.

It's alright to criticize players constructively but not alright to abuse players verbally. At the end of the day, these guys are our guys and I'm sure their trying their best against the best teams in the world. So it's best to be supportive when they're doing good. When the players are not doing good, we can constructively criticize players but again not go overboard.

Thank You Doc. I would like to extend this to all human beings. Especially those who have already died. Be it political leaders from our country or from a different one. Using foul language doesn't make one look good, nor does his/her arguments makes a better case.

Controling hatred and channeling them to a positive response is very difficult and not many can do. Decency can not be bought, it can only be nurtured. Indecency is related to upbringing and association.

Please read my signature and think which group you belong to.

We love Ash too...but we criticize his performance, not him individually. If he does not hurt fans by his unacceptable performance, fans will not hurt him, at least sometimes.

But yes, in criticizing him we need to show civility and decency.

People are missing the bigger picture just like they also are on the thank you thread.

Nice thread. Should have a global appeal - and not targeted to one person.

If speech were to pass your lips
......test if it is true.... if it is not - don't say it
if it is true
.......test if it is necessary.... if it is not - don't say it
if it is necessary
.......test if it is kind......if it is not - don't say it.

- Sufi saying

Ultimate test is kindness...
true - necessary - kind
