NSC sues Mesuma

The National Sports Council (NSC) hogs the limelight today.

NSC served a writ of summons to sports apparel company Mesuma Sports Sdn Bhd over the ownership of the national jersey tiger stripe design, as reported in today's Mailsport.

Deputy Sports Minister Gan Ping Sieu said the NSC Act 1971 will undergo several amendments to ensure it remains relevant to the national sports scene, as seen here. Pin Sieu said this during the launch of the YBs Can Jump 3-on-3 basketball tournament at the Maba Stadium yesterday (pic).

Last but surely not least, Foul! would like to extend our condolences to the family of NSC official Harun Osman who passed away after suffering a heart attack in Palembang.

HD says: RIP Harun.


  1. HD....revamping the NSC must come with the infusion of fresh ideas and officials who are able to work professionally i.e. not bringing personal issues in whilst making professional decisions. The current top management are more interested in showing their authority and promote their own units/divisions.They have been rehashing old ideas into new packages; and the momment they sense that there is a program that they are not in control of; they will with all their resources sabotage and make sure the program fails. In a short they potray the definition of insanity - doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results!

  2. What a sharp comment by ANON 1:21.. well observed, short and precise.. somehow i think i know ANON 1:21
    my observation: NSC in the limelight too often these days. The sport/athletes always should come first, not NSC.

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.
