Why separately?

If you step back, beyond the allegations and counter-allegations, it seems obvious that one major reason for the current situation is a total, complete breakdown in communications.
This review committee, that meets tomorrow, has a huge problem -- but also a wonderful opportunity. It can, if it wishes to, do a much needed spring-cleaning within the team, the support staff, and even the selection committee and process (sure, the body is purely advisory in nature -- but it does contain the top two officials in the Board, and the one non-official who is higher up than even those two; if they can't between them act on the advise of a committee they are part of, then what purpose do they serve?).
I suggest that one way to start is to put an end to the game of Chinese Whispers; to end this business of people talking behind the backs of other people. If the Chappell-Ganguly dynamic is the problem, then the only solution in sight is to call them before the panel together; for them to air their problems before each other.
Calling them individually leaves you exactly where you are now -- Chappell speaks his bit, Ganguly speaks his bit, but neither answers the questions the other raises.

    Sunday following a Penn State game usually brings strong Web traffic. Yesterday's was the best so far this year.

  • Prem, agree with you. I am sure even GC would prefer that. But, what about JD, the other two and SG? As mentioned in the mail, if SG couldnt convincingly say VVS what GC had told about him infront of GC, would he be able to speak anything but lies with GC around?

  • Two together may be be too hard to handle.

    A convenor like Bhogale might help!

  • you must be kidding.

    I dont see any patch up possible.

    GC loses his right to tell other ppl to do their job, if the captain is not held accountable.

  • Wonder why RD presence and comments are not being called for..Being the Vice-Captain..his opinion is also required I think..

    It is easier to get a clearer picture if the inital questioning is done one at a time. It gives the individual the opportunity to build their own case without interruptions or constraints, it also lets them hang themselves with a long rope if they want to.

    It is a common, and effective, interviewing technique. At least if you are trying to reach the bottom of the situation instead of trying to provoke a dramatic confrontation. :)
