Lesen ABC?

UPDATE (4.25pm): FAM are in the midst of discussing Kedah's caretaker coach Radhi Mat Din. Read today's Mailsports for more.

We have in the past heard of ABC taxi permits.

It is when the permit holder, which is supposed to be the driver of the taxi, leases his permit to another driver for a fee.

Now, let's hope we don't have the same mentality in our local football.

Football coaches in the Super League need to have an A-licence. But it seems we have teams who have A-licenced coach sidelined while another coach with no proper qualifications handling the team. Oh yes, no technical issues here as the name list still bears the former coach's name.

Is this right or wrong?

HD says: Fact of the day - former Mailsports editor Tony Mariadass has a coaching licence. Don't play play.


  1. bro,
    in Malaysia its about who you know. the rules states you can temporarily use a b license coach while waiting for a new coach. how long is temporary is very subjective. that's why we cannot improve. anyway, the national body has no business running the league. it should be privatised so that it can be run by pro's.

  2. Thank you for you for your thoughts Anon 9.42pm.

    I know the grace period is about 14 days. What if it has been so for more than a month?

  3. setuju dgn anon 9.42pm. liga patut sudah lama di swastakan. kepana belum? saya kira ini kerana ada orang mengambil kesempatan keaadaan tidak pro untuk mengaut keuntungan. seharusnya ada audit untuk jualan tiket. sekarang mana ada?

  4. make sure that FAM is not doing the same mistakes all over again. the old habit of "tak apa" should be left long ago. FAM should be strict in doing some decisions. thats how you'll gain respect. not just after deciding something, they soften their voices due to some pressures.

What went wrong with KL SEA Games?

145 gold medals.
It's the best Team Malaysia has ever achieved since the inception of the SEAP Games in1959.
The 29th edition of the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur ended yesterday. The opening ceremony dazzled those at the stands and viewers at home while the performances during the closing ceremony yesterday jogged plenty of musical memories to many.
Our athletes, the real superheroes, brought smiles through their heroic display. They made everyday a happy day.
Kudos to the officials - from the coaches, the National Sports Institute and National Sports Council - for their hard work in ensuring our athletes perform to their best.
But it was not all memorable.

'World fashion disaster' in KL

World Fashion Week Asia 2017 ended over the weekend.

And the launch on Friday at Palace of the Golden Horses at Mines Resort City just outside Kuala Lumpur turned out to be a forgettable night.


It was poorly organised.

Just as many are trying to get over the nightmare witnessed throughout the KL SEA Games, the organiser of World Fashion Week Asia 2017 has made it look like Malaysians seem to have lost it when it comes to hosting major events and hospitality.

Here's why.

Royal protocol ignored

1. The Sultanah of Terengganu Sultanah Nur Zahirah was invited to grace the event.
    a. There was no holding room for the Sultanah and VIPs accompanying her.
    b. The Sultanah was invited on stage without anyone accompanying her there (a big NO NO if anyone knows protocol involving royalty).
    c. The event dragged on till 11.30pm, way past the cut off point of the very many events I've attended with members of the royal family present.
   d. The Sultanah was forced to walk all t…

Klang run 'illegal', says Sports Commissioner

UPDATE (Dec 11; 11.58am): Sporting events approved by Sports Commissioner's Office will be posted on the Youth and Sports Ministry's website starting Dec 14, as revealed by the Sports Commissioner in her statement today. I'm glad the last point of my observation (as per posting right below) has been addressed.


UPDATE (10.57pm): A Twitter user had sent me a link by the organiser of the Klang Heritage Marathon 2017. It states that the marathon has been "postponed to Oct 14, 2018" and that they have been victims of fake news and will lodge reports with the authorities against materials with elements of defamation or fake news. Read the full statement, posted on Dec 2, here.
