FAM unimpressed with Ultras Malaya

http://manage.mmail.com.my/sites/default/files/frontpage_123.pngThe controversial and volatile fan group, Ultras Malaya, have vowed to resort to drastic measures including disrupting football matches if Malaysian teams are provoked.

Ultras Malaya founder, who wished to be known as Freddy, declared: “We have no qualms in doing whatever it takes to support Malaysia.”

The leader of the firebrand group told Mailsport the reason they let off flares and smoke bombs that led to the abandonment of the S-League tie between Harimau Muda B and Young Lions at Pasir Gudang Stadium on Sunday was because they were provoked.

Freddy said he was disappointed the match was abandoned but defended the act of the fans in Johor nevertheless.

This was published in Mailsport on Wednesday.

The FA of Malaysia, however, were certainly not impressed with the threat.

FAM deputy president Tengku Abdullah had told the fans to "behave" and that "our country's name and image is at stake", as published in The Malay Mail today (pic).

For the record, the Asian Football Confederation had asked FAM for an explanation as smoke bombs were lit after the Malaysia-Bahrain 2015 Asian Cup qualifier match on Oct 15.

Fifa, meanwhile, initiated disciplinary proceedings against Scottish and Croatia FAs after flares and smoke bombs were lit during a World Cup qualifying match between both teams recently.

HD says: The rules of the game stand above all.

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.

Why?

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.

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.
