Pre-mature end.


"Having started this website with a hope and a prayer, life has been tough as it has been a journey riddled with roadblocks and sabotage. With virtually no funding, and the last minute pullout by the title sponsors of the MHL - Tenaga Nasional Berhad, due to the fact that the MHF Deputy President had instructed them not to award the website to this administrator."

That was the first paragraph of the final posting on the unofficial website of the Malaysian Hockey League.

I don't know the real deal that transpired between the parties involved. I am not going to pretend to know either.

What I do know is that many people refer to the website - although it being an unofficial site.

It's 2011.

14 year olds have blogs. 16 year olds are hooked on Twitter while most working adults are fixated on Facebook. And the Malaysian Hockey League does not have an official site...oh wait, does the Malaysian Hockey Federation have a website?

  4. Justice Pao, you're very much entitled to your own opinion but I'm sorry that what you've written is, in your own words, "kicking a man when he is down".

    Hopefully, we'll get to know each other better over a cup of coffee? :)

Football journo's accreditation card retracted for being 'overly critical'

Four Four Two journalist Vijhay Vick's accreditation card to cover the M-League has been "retracted" by Football Malaysia LLP last night.

The letter, signed by FMLLP chief executive officer Kevin Ramalingam, stated:
"We are open to criticism by the public, however, it has been brought to FMLLP's attention that you have been overly critical of the Malaysian League and have made misleading statements and or shared misleading statements made by third parties. This is very damaging to the image of the League and the brand that we are trying to build."
It remains unclear which articles written by Vijhay are said to be "overly critical" of the Malaysian League.
Vijhay, in responding to the letter he received last night, said: 
"I was shocked (to receive the letter). I would like to know which articles of mine that are overly critical of the league."
It is best if FMLLP explained its definition of being "overly critical".
