...but why only announce now?
The FA of Malaysia's (FAM) 4th exco meeting - their fourth sitting since 2010 - met yesterday and spoke on wide range of issues over four hours.
After the meeting, a Press Conference was held. And it was only after a question by NST's Devinder Singh that FAM revealed 18 players from three President's Cup teams (Negri Sembilan, T-Team and MP Muar) were slapped with bans from two to five years.
Rewind to last year, several bookies - two being backroom staff of several President's Cup teams - were arrested and charged in court for match-fixing.

The exco members also decided to be more open when it comes to criticism and looked at organising road shows to attract more fans to the stadium.
