KLFA insist late salaries nothing to do with match-fixing

A  banner that read 'Bookie 5 Fans 0' during a Premier League match between KL and Sime Darby in May. KL lost 5-0.Was it arrogance or guilt? 
Either way, three coaches and five players from Kuala Lumpur FA (KLFA) faced the wrath of FA of Malaysia (FAM) who lashed out the whip to kick match-fixing out of football.
The eight in question, head coach Stanilav Lieskovsky, assistant team manager Rosdi Omar, official Shaari Jani, players Jeremy Danker, Khairul Anuar Shafie, Hafizi Roslee, Fadhulah Yunsifar and Phoo Kai Lun were handed lifetime suspensions from football and fined RM20,000 for match-fixing.

According to KLFA secretary general Nokman Mustapha, the eight claimed to be innocent but he was puzzled as to why they did not respond to FAM’s disciplinary notice letters.

The very same committee will hear the cases of another seven players, also from demoted Premier League side KL, this Friday after they entered defence.

Questions were asked if players were “forced” to turn to bookies after late payment of salaries.

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.

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.
