Oh Thiru....

Let's look at two scenarios.

Scenario 1
Mario Balotelli (Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur)

Mario Balotelli will serve his four-match ban after Manchester City opted not to appeal against his suspension.

The controversial Italian striker appeared to stamp on Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker's head during Sunday's 3-2 win at the Etihad Stadium - before his last-minute penalty winner kept City three points clear of the Barclays Premier League.


Read the full report here.


Scenario 2

V.Thirumurugan (Kedah v Kelantan)


Insiden V Thirumurugan (Kedah) pijak Mohammed Ghaddar (Kelantan) dalam aksi Liga Super Kedah vs Kelantan (pic) 20 Januari 2012, Stadium Darul Aman. Thirumurugan bagaimanapun terlepas hukuman kerana terlepas pandang insiden pijak berkenaan.


Watch the video here.


With Astro Arena now showing the matches live and a major sponsor of the Super League, it would be impossible not to get recordings of the matches. Otherwise, we can always count on youtube.


Those who watched Balotelli and Thirumurugan would be able to conclude which of the two should be severely penalised.


But then again, there is a huge difference on how football is run in England and Malaysia. Oh well.

  1. After watching the match I was waiting some reaction from FAM or the respective committee as to what sort of action should be taken against Thiru for his unprofessional attitude. He deserve a severe punishment for that incident. Hope he doesn't get away and I hope Kedah FA don't make a fuss if there is an action taken against his player. In fact it will more appropriate if Kedah had made the first move to punish Thiru. Referees, Assistants, Match Inspectors and others who are directly involved - IGNORANCE is no EXCUSE>

  2. When Asraruddin Putra Omar stamped on S. Sivaraj during the KL v Selangor Malaysia Cup match in 2011 at the Selayang Stadium, no action was taken either. What was worse the incident happened in front of the linesman. FAM does not believe in taking retrospective action. "Jangan Pandang Belakang" is their motto.

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.

Why?

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.
