What's the REAL story?

The Johor AAA claim they are yearning for change - as seen here.

They claim they have got the support of many of the states AAA including FT.

But FTAAA dismissed those claims by saying "they support the majority" and it should not be misconstrued as FTAAA supporting Tunku Ismail.

“Our (FTAAA) council have not met, so how can we decide who we should be backing? Our council will discuss the matter when the nomination forms are out and only then we will decide."

Read more here.

Insiders claim most of the state representatives were unaware of the attempt to bring in Tunku Ismail until they were asked to "menghadap Tunku Ismail" by Johor AAA. When they met Tunku Ismail, they were all apparently in their "bodek mode".

If these bunch of people really claim they yearn for changes, then they should know that Tunku Ismail - with all due respect - is not a suitable candidate as he already has his hands full with Johor FA.

Tunku Ismail has got big plans for the southern football team and not everyone can play president to 101 associations.

So that leaves us with Danyal Balagobal Abdullah. Is he the right candidate? I don't know but those who have worked with him in the past should know better.

HD says: Who ever comes in need to make radical changes for the good of the Malaysian athletics scene.


  1. Spot on Dato' Danyal; professional and task orientated. The screataries are clamouring for change? Easy, step down and let others take over. Most of you if not all are retirees; devoid of ideas, suck up to Karim and Dato' Shahidan for free beers and money! For the sake of athletics in the country; leave!

  2. One must look for capabilities and not whether you are tengku or a tuanku. Its common knowledge that the council members do not question the royalties even when they are wrong. They are too 'nice' to put the royalties in the right path. What Malaysian athletics need is a leader who can command respect and at the same time have solid and workable plans for the future of athletics. The only one man who stand out is non other than Admiral Danyal. His long term plans that received cabinet committee's approval was later buried by Karim & Gang. Now is the time to revive malaysian athletics.

    I hear he is too busy with OCM activities. Is that true?

  3. One man cannot be a royalti and President at the same time. In Malaysian athletics it won't work la brader. Tell the Royalties not to embarrass themselves la. They can't do magic. Going by his age, he is still considered a boy many in MAU. Want to be President then be sporting and don't throw your royalty weight around. What can he do for MAU? state FA maybe he can run la after all all Johor people will Kow tow.

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.
