Hockey which is the national game of India over the last couple of decades and so especially in the last few years has really gone down the drain. It hurts me greatly as avid hockey fan like millions of other indian fans and admirers of indian hockey around the world. Hockey in which India had written glorious chapters in the past winning eight olympic golds and ruled asian hockey. India suddenly find themselves out of reckoning for semifinals in asian games and will finish out of medals at Asiad for the first time in 48 years sinces the games where introduced ina asiad in 1953. And it is not just one event they finished lowly eleventh this time in world cup hockey too. And in last couple of decades has not won medal at olympics too. There is a deep rot in indian hockey and man responsible for indian hockey for last couple of decades, Hockey federation chief KPS Gill should drown in SHAME and when asked about indian loss in hockey he merely was disappointed. whenever india loses he brings a minor chopping and changguing of players, coach, and selectors but he himself never felt responsible enough to resign because he thinks he own indian hockey. For this current doha asiad, best players were not sent who knows why? then there are no accountablity of players who are penalty corner specialists even when they don't score goals in penalty corners their whole lives!!! Then selection system is faulty ,everyone is kept in dark, there is government apathy towards the game's plight and media and public indifference to what is happening. There are no foreign specialist coaches, experience of former hockey greats of india are not utilised. noone is concerned to stem the rot and take ther blame. I think this is a very v, very sorry day for indian hockey and who know anything about artistic indian hockey. friends plzzz feel my pain and let's together voice the opinions of mylot members against rotting indian hockey by idiots like KPS Gill and indian government and hockey federation of india.

Yes you are right M/s KPS Gill and Party should be immediately sacked from IHF it has been long 12 years since KPS gill has been at the helm of IHF and instead of imrovement it has gone down the drain and Indian Hockey has reached its Nadir. It is high time some able Former Hockey Player/Olympian takes over IHF, It is different ball game to fight Terrorism than Manage a sports Body.

KPS Gill and his bunch of jokers are responsible for everything.They dropped Rasquinha for no reason and see the result in the asiad.While they drown themselves in champagne and arrange conferences in five star hotels,some players are forced to stay in rooms which have no bathrooms. This is our national sport and its hight time the govt.does something about it.
