'Why Article 88? What is Article 88?'

Former FA of Malaysia (FAM) general secretary Ibrahim Saad (pic) is the latest to lambast the national body for hauling up national coach K.Rajagobal for apparently violating Article 88 of the FAM Statute.

Ibrahim, who served FAM from 2005 to 2007, said that Rajagobal is a staff and that action should be taken in a typical employer-employee manner.

Why Article 88 and not the Technical Committee, Ibrahim asks.

It must be noted Article 88 clearly states; "no official, FAM coach, affiliate or player, with the exception of the President and the General Secretary, without the prior approval of the Congress are allowed to contribute articles about FAM's administration or criticise FAM to the Press."

To that Ibrahim said cynically; "What is Article 88? It wasn't there during my time."

All this and more in the backpage of today's The Malay Mail.

HD says: Do read page 8 of The Malay Mail where not only Parlimen Bubar was trending but #BubarFAM was also seen on Twitter.


  1. What it is, RG must be fined same like TSAm, DS shahidan n TMJ...

  2. I think FAM should also "bubar" and the tops 2 must go!

  3. Who sits in the technical committee? Are they competent enough to elaborate on the matters at hand?
    Knowing very well that the people at the helm(FAM) are a bunch of kaki bodek and ampu and what can be expected from them.?

    This nation needs true and realist leaders to guide and educate the people, but unfortunately we have accommodated and put in place leaders who only think about them selves and their interest.

    Hopefully we all can come together to speak the unspoken and to do the undone to protect the future of our generation to come.

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.
