Hockey is 'clean'; India is back, says Negre

"Hockey is safe, hockey is clean. It is one of our qualities, our selling point that the sport is the cleanest around." 

Those were the words of International Hockey Federation (FIH) president Leandro Negre as reported here.

Match-fixing and doping have reared its ugly head in recent times with a string of athletes facing bans and fines over such unsporting activities.

At the same Press Conference held at Royal Chulan Hotel early Wednesday,  Negre went on to say that "Indian hockey is back" as seen in this article.

And it was this observation of his which was rather interesting;

“In India it was always about internal problems and people fighting. I am glad to say that now under Hockey India, things have improved...."

HD says: Isn't that a problem everywhere?

Football journo's accreditation card retracted for being 'overly critical'

Four Four Two journalist Vijhay Vick's accreditation card to cover the M-League has been "retracted" by Football Malaysia LLP last night.

The letter, signed by FMLLP chief executive officer Kevin Ramalingam, stated:
"We are open to criticism by the public, however, it has been brought to FMLLP's attention that you have been overly critical of the Malaysian League and have made misleading statements and or shared misleading statements made by third parties. This is very damaging to the image of the League and the brand that we are trying to build."
It remains unclear which articles written by Vijhay are said to be "overly critical" of the Malaysian League.
Vijhay, in responding to the letter he received last night, said: 
"I was shocked (to receive the letter). I would like to know which articles of mine that are overly critical of the league."
It is best if FMLLP explained its definition of being "overly critical".
