The tale of four Datuks
It all started here (pic).
Who would have thought that a simple Memorandum of Understanding between the National Sports Institute and the University of Bath would turn out to be a bitter lesson for Malaysian sports. But I see it as a blessing in disguise.

While some may have a kick out of it, it isn't a laughing matter to begin with.
I truly do hope that Sports Minister Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek will look into this - we're all tired of the communication breakdown between the National Sports Council, the National Sports Institute and the national bodies.
Here is to quote a senior official from a national federation;
"One side must please NSC, other side must please NSI. When go NSC function, all they do is thrash talk NSI. When go NSI function, all they do is justify their actions. How to tahan?"
