The IPL is a day away! The big question remains - how hard is it to create loyalties?

Why is it that a Mumbai fan will support ONLY the MUmbai Indians? Will a MUMBAI-BANGALORE match create the excitement and the emotions that a INDIA-PAKISTAN or a INDIA-AUSTRALIA match does?

Don't you think the IPL is scripted television that is marketed to compete with the SAANS BI KABHI BAHU THI'S and your other prime time soap operas?

Can we expect a Rahul Dravid taking a shot at Ganguly in a press conference - purposely - to create storylines? Is the IPL purely scripted television? OR LIKE LALIT MODI ONCE SAID "THE BIGGEST REALITY SHOW OF THEM ALL"..

Well yes and no.

Yes, because who the hell has heard of a single tournament being worth US$ 3 Billion? They have started off the script on a good note. What remains to be seen is whether they get the end result right.

No because surely the BCCI couldn't have scripted the enormous amounts that were played to cricketers. Ad they certainly couldn't have scripted the media outrage they have caused, first due to bad arrangements for the media at the auctions and second because they aren't allowing the media to cover the event freely.
