Chennai Super Kings & Rajasthan Royals suspended from IPL for Two Years: A Supreme Court-appointed panel suspended IPL franchises Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) for two years on Tuesday after their officials were found guilty of illegally betting on games...

What needs to be decided now is if two new franchises will be created to fill the new hole.

Huh.

Well, I'm still going to wear my Dhoni #7 Super Kings jersey around town. It's one of my favourites in my collection because of its rarity (almost impossible to purchase one in North America), style (the bright yellow colour and the lion logo are awesome), and feel (really nice light/strong material with an easy fit on the shoulders).

The whole purpose of the IPL is to generate something for the sub-continent to bet on. Nothing inherently wrong with that, but even in countries with effective regulatory systems, conflicts of interest and match fixing are still going to occur. However, it's good to see some action being taken in India, where cricket has been suffering for years from maladministration as well as suspicions of fixing. More power to the courts and the investigators, and hopefully they will go after some of the others.

No one who bets on their sport should ever be allowed to participate again, in any capacity.

Are you trolling me, bro?

Rose's poor-me act is tiresome, but as I've said before, 15 years' banishment is a sufficient sentence for what he finally admits to doing. Baseball ought to respond to his admission by reinstating him. ... I don't agree with lifetime bans in sport.
