    i dont know if the issue was discussed at that time or not--but was Hansie murdered ??

    After all ,he was leaking too many secrets of the matchfixing mafia in his confession ,and if the full extent of the matchfixing was revealed , the consequences for many powerful people would have been catastrophic . So was he murdered to keep his mouth shut permanently ??

    Also do answer the poll as whether he was a great sportsman and personality or not . In South Africa , many ( especially of his Afrikanar community ) still idolise him . After all , he did show the moral character and guts to accept that he fixed matches at a time when many others preferred to not accept their involvement inspite of evidence .

    I think he was great man who did a mistake--but at least had the morality to accept it .

    I really suspect foul play in death of Hansie cronje and Bob woolmer. I guess they were silenced to stop them from spilling the beans of match fixing. Too many powerful people are involved in this match fixing saga.

    Bob Woolmer, highly likely. Some of these Paki players would have strangled or smothered him to death.

    But Cronje? Crashing an entire planeload to get one man? There are so many simpler, cheaper and foolproof ways to dispatch someone!! Somehow it doesn't seem to fit in...

    Nah, why crash a plane to kill? But you never know. But forensic science can easily catch all foul play if at all someone would think that a crashed plane will not give up any evidence of foul play.

    CTs will never end. Bob Woolmer may have been murdered. Investigations did not say that. I dont think the investigators would have hushed up the case for Pakis.

    What an odd question for poll. Instead of asking was he murdered why is the question was he a great man?
