IPL : Idiotic People's League

10 days of  non-stop nonsense starting from Sunanda Pushkar leading to Shashi Tharoor, followed by Lalit Modi, Sharad Pawar, his daughter, Praful Patel, Poorna Patel, WSG, some other member (don't rememba his name), carried on to NCP and eventually leading on to an IT raid on all the team owners. I ask : was this such a "big" deal that almost every single news channel covered it for almost the entire day for 10 days and counting and neglected other news ? 
       I mean c'mon, was the government really thinking that IPL was corruption-free *confused* ? C'mon, corruption starts with the government, infects the entire nation and every field...and doesn't really "end" perse.It's a shallow world. Was everyone expecting IPL to remain a virgin to corruption :S? So it started with Sunanda Pushkar. She had sweat equity in the new Cochin team. Oh look---she's Tharoor's No.3 :O *thinks the news channels*. Omg we have to dig her past up :O. Get all her pics. Oh look Tharoor's there too in the pictures with her *news channels wondering what is she doing there with him, how do they know each other, oh we are affirmatively getting a classic "pati,patni aur woh" story here* *news channels working their asses off 24x7 to dig up and cook up some juicy-masala*. Two days of disgusting and demeaning attacks on Sunanda Pushkar, Tharoor's name flashing everywhere, IPL being invited to trouble. "WOW, now we'll get awe-some publicity and viewers and moolah", thinks the news channels.
     Like this wasn't enough to get started, Mr. Lalit Modi stung by the twitter bug starts blabbering...As a result, look what happened :O the government woke up :O. Omg that's a first :O. The government decides to throw an IT raid on all the team owners and Lalit Modi :O. Omg the world's changing :O. Omg I better become a good citizen now :O. The government is waking up :O :P...(loll well I am damn frustrated by the idiotic government who never does anything right, the idiotic IPL that was one of the most ridiculous idea for a game that I've ever come across in my life and the idiotic media who feeds off rumours and gossips like parasites on its hosts :P)
     Oh look who mr. Modi roped in--->it's mr. Praful Patel. Oh my my...I wonder what's Patel's role in cricket eh ? Looks like aviation business is boring mr. Patel-is he planning for a change of career path ?(huh assholes) And hence the ongoing process of 1 crab pulling other crabs legs to get to the top starts. When one asshole got roped in, he thought, "well, why should I be the only one to enjoy all the media and government attention eh? It would be so unfair to my partners-in-crime. So let me bring em in as well while I'm @ it ;)". And then started the IT raid and the WSG groups and allegations coming up one after the other against Modi and the broadcast rights being revealed and the revelation of Modi's humungous assets and the 400 crore misappropriation. Aww mahnnn...okie so it was required to inform the nation about the hulla-baloo. But what was new ? Who didn't expect it ? Everywhere crores of rupees are changing hands by way of corruption. Who cares ? It definitely doesnot affect the common man. Coz 1stly it's the cricket he's interested in and 2ndly, everyone knows that corruption exists-its the hi-end people who are benefiting from it, not the common man-the common man is only losing money-which he and she will continue to lose unless the corruption bit is tackled and unless the sufferer starts voicing out :P. What was such an eye-opener in IPL that the news channels covered it for practically 10 days continuously ? And it wasn't even that the news was being updated by the passing hour. It was the same old news reiterated by the channels.
     My question still stands : was it necessary to broadcast this non-sensical shit continuously for 10 days when there might have been more important news elsewhere ? And I'm sure it still continues. All people care about is : how to fool the nation, the viewers, the followers and mint money. It's a shallow and a ridiculous world with corrupt monkeys dancing around.

P.S. : this is one of those very few posts where I have barely used my "loll"s :(...but it wasn't funny u know :( so how could I laugh lol :P?
