How IPL became corrupt ?

Rabindranath Tagore is one of my gods, like one of the many you have in Hindu Religion. His saying fits in perfectly as to why IPL became corrupt. He said, "The danger inherent in all force grows stronger when it is likely to gain success, for then it becomes temptation."
The force here is the power of cricket and the flowing money. It slowly became temptation and many fell prey to it.As a wise man rightly said, "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely".
Moving on to my second god, Oscar Wilde, he said, "I can resist everything except temptation". That probably holds true for those involved in the scandal.
As far as I am concerned, it does not matter much to me. If they've made money illegally, I don't care since that money is not mine. I operate within the legal frameworks of the society so thats not my money. Consider my tax as charity to the underprivileged, consider it as a bet for upcoming projects and consider it as a small token of love to the soldiers of this nation.
For me and my life I'd quote Tagore again,
"I say again and again that I am a poet, that I am not a fighter by nature. I would give everything to be one with my surroundings. I love my fellow beings and I prize their love"
