'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.

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".
