The mystery of bob woolmers death March 19, 2007

Just a couple of hours ago I read the tragic news of the death of one of crickets best coaches in the contemporary era, Bob Woolmer, a day after Pakistans shock defeat to Ireland in the world cup.

Now, I know Pakistan losing to Ireland was a shock and Woolmer obviously did not take it well. I dont think anyone will ever be able to tell the impact this loss had on Woolmer and how it affected him. But something tells me it might not have been as catastrophic an impact as its being made out in some parts of the media.  I think Woolmer was well aware that he wasn’t coaching odds on favorites to win the world cup, if anything this has been one of the most weakest teams pakistan have sent to a world cup in recent years.  For such a team to lose to Ireland, while might have been shock, it could not have possibly affected Woolmer to the extent of him commiting suicide or having a heart attack because of the deep trauma he suffered.

Away from all of the events, I’m willing to throw out a theory that might well be with some basis and not one that I completely pulled out of my a**.  I’m pretty sure there’s been foud play in Woolmers death.  For the reasons above, and furthermore this is the “Pakistani cricket team” we’re talking about.  Who knows if some crazy Pakistani cricket supporter, player, observer might have poisoned him or even killed him in some other manner. Mind you there hasn’t been a psot-mortem done yet so these theories are completely baseless but I’m going by what my gut tells me.  Its just too much of a coincidence for this to happen right after a shock defeat.  The job of the coach of the Pakistani cricket team could go down as one of the most dangerous jobs in the world now.

Nevertheless, this has been a very sad incident. It shows us again how fragile and short our lives can be.  I’m sure everyone, and there must have been quite a few, who cursed and abused Bob Woolmer over the past few months in Pakistan must fel like they have blood on their hands right now. You all contributed little portions to the demise of this great man.  Its time people in that part of the world really started to get a life and realise this is only a game, just a game. Too short and too insignificant.  Sport mirrors life in that as we may lose or win in life, we lose or win in sport.

R.I.P Robert Woolmer.  It was never ment to end this way.

PAKISTAN IS A TERRORIST COUNTRY. EVERYONE KNOWS IT ALL AROUND THE WORLD. ITS A UNIVERSAL FACT. PRESIDENT MUSHARAF COULD HAVE PULLED PAKISTAN OUT OF THE DIRT, BUT HE IS NOW IN SUCH A SITUATION THAT HE MAY BE KILLED ANYTIME. ONE MAN CANNOT CHANGE THE COUNTRY.
COMING TO THE CRICKET TEAM, AND BOB WOLMERS DEATH.
MY CONCLUSION IS THAT HE WAS DEFINATELY MURDERED. PAKISTANIS HAVE NO SPORTSMANSHIP AS WE HAVE SEEN FROM THE INCEPTION OF CRICKET IN ASIA. NOT ONLY THE CRICKET FIELD, ON ALL THE OTHER FIELDS, THEY ARE CROOKS AND HEAVY HEADED.

Seems like things have changed somewhat with strangulation being considered. A veritable cricket “who dunit?”

MORNING TIME. WOOLMER ASKS A MASSEUR TO COME TO HIS ROOM AND MASSAGE HIS NECK AND BACK. WOOLMER IS IN HIS BATH ROOM TOWEL. THE MASSEUR ARRIVES. WOOLMER KNOWS HIM. WOOLMER IS LYING ON HIS STOMACH. MASSEUR IS MASSAGING HIS NECK. AND SUDDENLY HE TWISTS AND BREAKS WOOLMER’S NECK. WOOLMER DROPS DEAD WITHOUT A STRUGGLE. MASSEUR WALKS AWAY. THE ROOM IS INTACT EXCEPT FOR ONE MANUSCRIPT. THE MASSEUR GIVES AWAY THE MANUSCRIPT TO THE DON. THE DON REWARDS THE MASSEUR. WE WILL PUT THE BLAME ON THE INNOCENT CRICKETERS. POSSIBLE.

Well! its really very sad about the demise of a professionalist legend coach, Allas! it would not had happened. But some one who blames pakistan as a nation, for having involved in the murder is a very stupid thought and ruthless idea to ignite the situation as one who does not belive in one ness of All mighty God. In fact we are not the Terrorists rather we the muslims, are the most peacefull loving people on the gifted Earth of Allmighty Allah.
It would be the only day ” the Day of judgement” which will uncover the actual facts and would be a huge rapent day for tose who would be held responsible for bads.

I think this is ridiculuos.obviously he was killed.we have known for yers that pakistanis are naturaly violent.Any angry spectator or pakistani fan could have done it.it is soooo stupid to think that he comitted suicide.I mean,before people knew he was murdered they were saying that it was a heart attack and he was fat and he aint fit.its all just junk.he was murdered no doubt about it
