To be honest, I absolutely don't mind them going to the jail for years! They have cheated on us, though I would be a tad lenient if these guys can actually reveal everyone else involved so that even the roots of corruption can be removed from the sport. You would have to be too naive to think that it is just limited to these three. It was just a matter of fact that these three were the ones caught by a sting operation (after all, sting operations don't happen everyday!) And GREEDINESS is not just limited to one country or one nation but it is everywhere... Want a thorough investigation to be undertaken for others too (Don't understand why Majeed's other statements regarding other players fixing are not taken seriously?!?!?!)
