I pity Stanley Bernard Samuel (pic in white). Read his predicament with Indonesian outfit Persibo Bojonegoro in today's Mailsports.
The escalating tension between both countries is worrying. Our Indonesian counterparts have invited us to speak on the issue. They seem sincere in getting the true feelings of Malaysians as The Malay Mail's newly promoted assistant news editor Pearl Lee spoke to Jogjakarta-based radio station TrijayaFM and Jakarta Globe recently.
But I would like to quote what Indonesia's badminton ace Taufik Hidayat said during the World Championships in Paris recently:
"Don't mix sports and politics. I am a sportsman and not a politician. I don't like it (mixing sports and politics)."
