    It is clear that our hockey team, which won inaugral Asian Champs' trophy got a shabby treatment. Some people are comparing it with what cricket players get.

    But the differential treatment is there. The difference is GOI. BCCI is independent of govt control and can afford to pay its players well. IHF/Hockey India are 100% GOI appenadages, and have No funds.

    The only way hockey team or any non-cricket team will prosper in India is if they come out and become private.

    But this also means lack of government support at tough times when funds might be needed.
