Slightly controversial but...

Tsotsobe is the latest SA player to be charged with corruption in their domestic comps.

Have noticed that many of those charged are players who some might suggest were promoted prematurely or selected because of the quota imperative.

Could it be evidence that sometimes when things are provided on a platter, people don't naturally develop the work ethic in a natural way. I have read a few articles over the year arguing against quotas in sport (this context), and in other arenas in life and often cited is this very point.

BTW, this is not to be construed as racism in any form because it involves for example non-white players often treated more favourably based on skin colour; it's merely observational.

Thoughts?

Tsotsobe was involved because he is a total dickhead with a massive sense of self entitlement.

I suggested to someone here, over a year ago, that I suspected his involvement.

But might that sense of entitlement be enhanced by largesse perhaps unjustifiably doled out?
