A QUESTION OF BALLS

Nope this is not a lewd posting but rather a question of balls being used at a premier tournament.

The balls being used are of training quality, alleged a team and they said that the match officials concurred with them.

And mind you the umpires and technical officials are of FIH standard.

But when the matter was raised to the relevant officials, it was brushed aside, and this happened twice.

Of course the Committee will not lift a finger on it as they lack scrotal gumption to do anything.

And after the unfortunate incident about the MRSM student who died tragically having been struck bylightening, one would expect due care for the poor ball boys.

While the Technical Officials strut around with their specially stitched shirts, spare a thought for the ball boys who do not receive a t shirt let alone a rain coat.

Would the committee let their own children work under such circumstances?

Truly living up to the Kampung League status.

Await the next story on how certain teams are privileged

DOT RETIRES

Mohd Madzli Ikmar, the face of the Malaysian defense has quit the national training squad and announced his retirement from international hockey.

This was confirmed by national team manager George Koshy.

"He sent his letter yesterday citing family matters and we have accepted it, said Koshy.

Dot as he is affectionately known was the rock in the Malaysian defense and had quit the national team after Malaysia failed in the Olympic Qualifiers in Dublin in March 2012.

But sterling performances in domestic hockey saw him receive a call up from ex national coach Paul Revington.

However Dot was not in the team in the last Azlan Shah Cup and perhaps that drove him to make way for the younger generation to shoulder the task at the World Cup in May.

More later....

WHO RULES THE ROOST?

It was downright funny yet ridicolous watching the prize presentation ceremony of the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup last Sunday.

An SMS was dispatched to MHC Senior Vice President Dato Nur Azmi Ahmad asking him if there were changes in the structure as Azmi and another Senior VP Dr. Shamala Subramaniam were seated in the second row, with the paid Secretary of MHC in the front row with the VVIP's.

Such a thing should never have happened and if one traces back the roles of the past Secretaries, right from when I can remember, Dato G. Vijaynathan, K. Indran, S. Prempalam, S. Satgunam, T. Paramalingam, Hashim Mohd Yusof and Maninderjit Singh, such a situation never arose as they always placed elected office bearers at the forefront.

One could blame the protocol section and whoever, but the buck stops with the administrators of hockey - those paid staff should know where their place is.

If one wants to assume the role of the office bearers, then just wait till the AGM and contest the position, not pull the rug beneath them.

Whatever said and done, Azmi, to be fair does his fair share of running around and was the most senior MHC official present at the final, and should have, or rather must be given the due recognition he deserves. Respect his position as he won fair and square at the AGM.

It is clear that Perak HA has no regard towards protocol and such an action shows that maybe there was a hidden agenda with the MHC elections coming soon

By the way, a word of advice to the Secretary,going by records, your term comes to an end on April 8 and you have been passing remarks that no one talks to me these days. oh well lets see when the crown that your wear so proudly on your head is taken off, will you be as "popular" as you claim you are?

Be god fearing please if you understand what life is, or you can behave like the goon who goes around threatening people who will soon get his just reward.

CHAMPIONS CHALLENGE FIXTURES


Malaysia will compete in the Champions Challenge in Kuantan next month. We are publishing the fixtures as the MHC and Pahang HA have been awfully quiet on this, perhaps keeping things for a big press conference when really this type of information should be readily available to their website, that has been in a long slumber

MHC OWES MONEY TO KIDS

There is an official of MHC that now claims that he was a macho and almost punched me on the day of the MJHL final.

It was because I questioned how MHC officials were donning attire meant for the Technical Officials of the MJHL and he claimed that the MHC used their own money for that purpose.

So since you are so macho, how is it that the poor ball puckers of the MJHL were not even given a T Shirt for their three months of service and at times were drenched in rain, no masks for the haze and worst of all not paid?

Each ball picker was to receive RM10 per match and from January till today they have yet to see a single cent of their earnings?

Explain that before going around talking about punching people lah. Or is it all those in hospital with broken limbs are there due to your physical ability?

Today's friends are those who back stabbed you two years ago and it was this guy whose late mother you insulted that pleaded with Tengku Abdullah to reinstate you when your current kissing cousins three you out and kept the door shut.

Withholding results and information so as to show your power will get you nowhere but put you closer to destruction. 

Oh yes punch me if you dare please as I also know that our country has law, and implements it, unlike those who you work for that run lawless competitions
