India out of hockey
India lost in quarter finals badly & it has become talk of the country from last 2 days. I feel talent & hard work alone is not sufficient. Thoug hockey is India’s national game, preferrence to other games like cricket & tennis is given more in India. There is no proper facilities & support to hockey team at all. If there is some one who has to be blamed, it is we the indian citizens, because we have never seen hockey as a an interesting game nor have bothered to show interest keeping in mind it’s our national game.
If we don’t support our own national game from where can the game & the players get motivation from? We must show respect to Hockey along with other games. We must make the players realize that the whole nation is there to support them & to cheer them up. That is how a team can get spirit & play well to win it.
Though we blame many, actually it is the management for whom we had to be remain out of the olympics. This is really very shameful. A team who was performing superb until knock outs have to leave the game without qualifying for the Olympics.
Its pity as the players too are not much competent. Atleast they should have taken it as challange to go through the selections.
In 80 years of hockey, this is the first time when India will not be playing in Olympics. Pathetic governance and petty politics at top level has brought Indian hockey to this sorry state.
