Teams still owe EPF...

....Sosco and Income Tax!

It's 2012. The M-League is supposedly a professional set-up.

Yet, we still speak about unpaid EPF contributions Sosco and income taxes.

Some may say that FINALLY the FA of Malaysia (FAM) is taking charge of the matter after they issued a stern warning to 10 teams to pay up their debts amounting to RM 2.1 million before November 23 or be dropped from the league next season.

The warning was made during the executive committee meeting yesterday.

But those who have been in the scene long enough are tired with such talk.

I, among many, have touched on unpaid EPF, income tax and wages among teams for many years and have always included it in my articles as seen here and here. Even former NST reporter Christopher Raj had written about teams owning EPF in 2009.

Why has FAM been scared to crack he whip all these years? Simple - too many people with vested interests, too many individuals wearing too many hats.

When one tends to wear too many hats, he tends to be overly diplomatic even if it means blessing the wrong.

And no one cares. For years, the song has remained the same.

Then again, even big corporations can't get their act right, what more state FAs.

Read the full report by The Star's K.Rajan here.

HD says: Need to have positive thoughts, better late than never. Positivity is the way to go. Let's hold hands and start singing positive songs. Don't pay the EPF today no problem, there's always tomorrow or next year. (sic).


  1. Why can't the footballers, as employees, complain to the Human Resourses Ministry. These players must know their rights and fight for them.

    1. My exact sentiments but it is believed that the players rather keep mum for fear of being viewed as "rebellious" & they will later be frowned upon by other teams. This is what happens when there is no professionalism within the industry.

    2. Yup...agree. If they complain too much, their future becomes bleak, the current one also bleak! Pity, BUT this is the reality of PROFESIONAL FOOTBALL in Malaysia...Malaysian Standard of Profesionalisme...Sirim can endorsed it an make something such as MS idiot crap document etc.

      Sorry HD, saya lepas geram!

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.
