Should BCCI ban cricketers from engaging in endorsements?

Finally after weeks of hype and hyperbole, the much hyped team India crumbled. Their poor performance in the ICC World Cup has triggered extreme emotions in our cricket crazy nation. Unless you were living on mars, you could not miss the story after story of each member of team India, namely a Sachin or a Sehwag, a Dhoni or a Yuvraj…aired on various television channels and above all the omni visible campaign "ooh aah India…." Of course if you are a skeptic or a realist, you know that this changes nothing.

An euphoric nation, back home, has erupted into agitated demonstrations as India lost to Sri Lanka. The cricket lovers are disappointed and angry. There is humiliation here as well as opportunity, humiliation of facing an angry nation and opportunity of taking corrective measures. Switch any television channel, open a newspaper or magazine, advertisements carrying faces of our cricketers endorsing one product or the other are present. The question that many are asking and is worth debating is, should the cricketers be allowed by the BCCI to get so involved in the endorsement brigade that the game takes a back seat? It is a known fact that cricket has become commercialized but with players sparing little time for the game seems to have taken a toll on Indian cricket and a very bad one at that. 'Make hay while the sun shines and let the country go to hell!' seems to be the mantra of Indian players these days.

Let us not forget that cricket in India is major carrier of national identity and tends to promote a specific type of emotional upheaval. And hence the shameful performance of one-time world champs raises many questions.

Here, let us address at least one of them.

Should BCCI take strict action on Indian cricketers and disallow them from engaging in endorsements?
__________________________________________________________

I don't think banning endorsement makes sense.  BCCI could and must implement stringent policies pertaining to the player's continued presence in the team based on his / her preformance.  What they advertise is their personal issue as long as endorsements do not hamper their game performance.  Your thoughts?  I will consider this a poll and give the numbers later. Pls respond Big smile thnx.

Good Topic!

Should BCCI ban cricketers from engaging in endorsements?

Why? can BCCI or anyone gaurantee good results after this ban, NO (dare to challenge).There were no endorsements before did we win cups consistently?

Bad or unruly results that happen due to many reasons are subjected to such thoughts.. it basically displays frustration and one thing to pin point.

Everyone aspires to make best of the position for short span of career if there are ways to earn money then no harm. Why cann't people think that players are matured enough to understand that there first goal is play good and then other things... ban might agitate the players more... atleast its another reason to be a good player.

Make that 3 votes, I haven't read the entire article yet, but I agree with what Anshu has written. I don't care about the number of endorsements as long as they play well. It's only when they put on an awful show on the field that all thos eendorsements haunt usAngry.

MAYA, I joined you first on fence and brought chips and guacomole too and then posted this thread here LOL LOL

I think I am joining Raj now.. Endorsements are clearly the players' personal affair.
Fans can choose to control themselves and control worshipping players who are performing below-ordinary. With reduced popularity, ad agencies won't follow these players.  Endorsements will automaically be limited and athletes will get their act together Big smile . But that is if and when people stop hero-worshipping big names atleast after they duck repeatedly Confused.
 
BCCI need not ban endorsements I think.

eg.  Kevin Garnett is not seen in ads anymore - He was MVP not too long ago.

Or they could make a certain number of hours mandatory for net practice such that no time is left for endorsements. Practice kara kara ke maar daloLOL. Na rahenga baans, na bajegi bansuri.
