He is also the mofo that the Klingons worship. As well as this he symbolises courage, athleticism, determination, daring, discipline, sportsmanship, honor, impulsiveness, and struggling onward in the face of any odds. He is commonly held to be the strongest Chaos God by default, and is associated with wolves and powerful hunting dogs, as well as lions and bulls. Fun fact, this also means that the names of Khornate daemons are usually comprised of eight syllables.
Yes, this is an amazing biography. W G Grace is also a very interesting figure in the cricketing world. When we talk about sportsmanship cricket is one game that comes to the fore. For example you can contrast it with a fairly working-class game such as football where in general there seems to be more toleration of cheating, if you will, in terms of hand balls, etc!
The public perception of him is of an archetypal gentleman player. He was playing in the second half of the 19th century and the start of the 20th and that was the time when there was a big difference between the amateur players and the professionals.
The idea being that he made a lot of money from cricket and all the while he was pretending to be an amateur gentleman player when he easily could have gone professional.
There are many instances of him taking enormous liberties with the rules of the game. Grace is a very iconic figure in this whole discussion of sportsmanship and cheating, especially as cricket is seen as superior to other games for whatever reason.
And yet, as we have seen recently and throughout history, an element of cheating still goes on. Absolutely and this throws up very interesting questions about the framing of the rules because the rules of cricket were framed in England with some cursory consultation with Australia.
If you look at what happened in the s and early 80s — when the West Indian pace bowlers started dominating the game quite brutally and ruthlessly — suddenly the ICC changed its rules around fast bowling. All sorts of rules were introduced to hamper the fast bowlers!
Similar controversy erupted with Muralidharan when he had Australians and the English batsmen under his spell and umpires — always, incidentally, white men! The coincidence is too much and I think the colour prejudice is alive and kicking in cricket, as in other sports. Do you see that as a continuation of the imperialism of cricket?
Yes, I do, which is why I think this whole business of sportsmanship and imperialism goes hand in hand. I see it as an imperial value at heart invented to serve the rule-makers but not necessarily the rest of the Empire. And do you think that Indian cricket is pulling away from its imperialist past?
I think it has done that well. I see it as colonial history playing itself out and the Empire is fighting back. This international game should be governed in a more impartial way.
But, if it comes down to a choice between England and India, I would happily vote for India because the game is so big here like football is in England.1.
