Do match-fixing scandals affect your love for the game?

Revelations of match-fixing in various sporting codes has raised doubts among sport fanatics regarding the authenticity of athlete performances.

702's Azania Mosaka gave listeners an opportunity to share their thoughts regarding the issue.

Listen to the interview below:

...How can one team score 400 and another team go out for 86? It's like how do you go from winning so easily to getting a thrashing?

Camron, caller in Emmarentia

It's quite disturbing to see how people influence the outcome of the game. You go to the stadium and watch on television expecting to see players competing.

Mushera, caller in Pretoria

It seems that when South Africans get involved with match-fixing, it is very minute in terms of the global incidents that happen. This guy, Bodi, we're talking about a few rands. The IPL is talking about about $50 million.

Richard, caller in Sunninghill
