Perhaps Khairy Jamaluddin could have the shortest reign as the Minister of Youth and Sports given the various reports appearing in the main stream media over the past few days.

Reports on football, badminton and hockey, attributed to the National Sports Council Director General have touched raw nerves and can be considered as government interference and left unchecked can be considered also as usurping the authority of KJ.

Lets take it one by one and start with football. It is FAM's decision as to who they want to play, be it a schoolboy team, a kampung side or an estate team, as preparation for the Asia Cup matches. The decision is solely for FAM to make and it seems now that the NSC DG has a degree is coaching as well.

Obviously Rajagobal has his own reasons and if the NSC feel strongly then they should not fund any part of the trip down under.

Next is hockey where the NSC DG lamented that MHC should not do away with age group tournaments. Please get your facts right as mo tournament has been done away with and the NSC has not paid their share of the NSC-MILO-MHC Junior Hockey League.

So when sponsors like NSC cannot meet their obligations, is it wrong for a national body to reduce the number of tournaments they organise?

That is not all for the DG also spoke on development programs and the lack of teams in the age group level. He should ask the question to himself as what is happening to the well funded 1MAS Program which he chairs?

Why is it that it takes club funding to start a goalkeeping clinic and not via 1MAS which gets RM3 million annually from the government!

Talking about age group teams, hello, do you remember that it is NSC that has cut the funding as during the tenure of Dato Mazlan Ahmad a sum of RM3.2 million was allocated annually towards funding an U14, U16, U18 and juniors side as well as funding for coach education, umpires development as well as clinics.

Then we move on to badminton and the statement that BAM should allow Independant players to train with the national set up. Does the NSC DG realize the conditions set by BAM, or rather by two personalities in BAM - cannot wear sponsor logo, cannot have their coaches on court, cannot train except when called to do so.

And talking about Independant players, what happened to the proposal for NSC to save the career of youngster Zulfadli Zulkifli. Six months have passed since a verbal agreement was made but nothing came out of it.

So rather then going around slandering me, it's best that the NSC DG walk the talk and look within and answer these questions.

And yes I also know about what you do and have done, so two can play this game. You are not gods gift to Malaysian Sports.

Perhaps it can be called divine intervention as Malaysia exited the Sudirman Cup last night, going down 3-2 to Germany, an unimaginable defeat to a foe, if one could call them that.

The defeat is so bitter to swallow given the fact that our players are ranked above the Germans in the BWF rankings and in Malaysian sports history it is a black spot, akin to Malaysia losing to Korea in Sepak Takraw a few years ago.

Divine intervention because it was a clear message of punishment from god to the powers that be in the administrative and executive structure of BAM that they have collectively failed the nation and thus should walk the plank, if they were in the navy.

Excuses will be a plenty, from blaming the players, coaches and so forth, but the crux of the matter is Malaysia failed to make the last eight for the first time since promoted to the elite division in 2005.

It all started when BAM neglected the needs and requirements of the domestic scene as their top leader went on to make a pact so that he could come out smelling like roses in the quest for world badminton supremacy off the court.

A coup was conducted to remove a legitimately elected BAC President in March, underhand tactics used to prevent legitimate delegates into the BAC AGM in Taiwan and culminating with the defeat of an Asian candidate in the race for BWF Presidency.

All in the name of Asian solidarity, something that the Malaysian media was guilty of over playing when it was clear that Asian disunity was the margin of defeat when votes were tallied in the BWF Presidential elections.

It is simple, there has been a systematic process of elimination of players within the BAM stable and using team events to boost the points of players within their stable to ensure that only their favorite sons make the grade.

So the notion of the best representing Malaysia is a farce, so much so that not only are there skeletons in the cupboard in terms of on the court misgivings but this has spread to even giving out lucrative contracts to selected individuals for their support off the court as some key officials continue to cling on to power.

The time has come to dissolve BAM, really that is the best solution. A sport that is courted by the top leaders in the country has today brought shame to a nation that was the world leader of the sport.

While Malaysia is responsible, or rather BAM solely, is the key reason why an European today is BWF President, we have gone one step further by even letting the European beat us on the court.

So if there is a semblance of dignity left within those administrating the sport, then please UBAH, by resigning today and not prolong the misery. For 12 years we have heard the excuses, the promises, so much so we have puked many a time.

The writing is on the wall, get out now....

The Badminton Association of Malaysia is fretting about the World Badminton Federation giving a wild card to China's ace Lin Dan.

And it's Secretary Ng Chin Chai has been quoted as saying that it was not done in the spirit of the game and BWF was in support of China.

To add insult to injury, there have even been suggestions that the wild card was issued as certain quarters in BEF were unhappy with BAM's support of a particular candidate in the BWF presidential election.

Well BAM should take a good look at themselves in the mirror when talking of fair play as it is evident Chin Chai does not practice what he preaches.

Why have two Malay boys, Zakry and Fairuz denied a place in the World Championships and the places given to a BAM pair?

It was clear the BAM pair was helped in its cause as the duo were given places in the Thomas Cup and allowed to play in the Badminton Asia Championship, both events where BAM does the selection.

The combines points derived from these two events was above 7,000 and that gave an advantage to the BAM pair.

Do not give any bullshit when it's clear that even in Malaysia, there is discrimination in sports and the current BAM regime is to blame.

So rather then blame everyone else, always remember that god rewards you in a mysterious way and you are to blame for your misdemeanor on earth.

Just take a look at the picture below and it tells you a million tales on how sports is administrated in the country. These are our nations divers, sleeping on the floor at an airport in USA , in transit for 8 hours.

This picture was taken from the twitter of Olympic bronze medallist Pandelela Rinong.

Am sure there will be loads of excuses and cover up, but can someone explain why they had to sleep on the floor?


Many have construed my silence on this blog to me beibg silenced by certain quarters.

But in reality I had to focus on family issues, as the well being of my parents is of utmost priority.

Much has happened over the weeks I did not update this blog but from today we shall continue to bring you unbiased news, expose the wrong doings and abuse of power and above all the self interest of personalities that use sports for self gain.

The image of the country internationaly has been tarnished at the BAC AGM and we now have video and audio footage showing a Malaysian doing scant justice to the BAC Constitution.

And then there is another case of the OCM Secretary position challenge that is being fanned by a top civil servant who has axe to grind.

Not forgetting talking on who will be the next Sports Minister since GE13 is over. Bye Shabery Cheek for you will not be missed at all save for those who benefited.

And talking of benefits why is the main stream media, especially the badminton writers so quiet about BAM appointing an agent to deal about TV rights with RTM when it could have done so itself as has been the case? Why pay commission when you can save mega bucks?  All related to the fact that you scratch my back and I scratch yours?

Oh yes there is also the talk about Windsor Paul making a return as FAM Sec Gen, in the mans own words why bother when one cannot change things for the better.

So keep coming back here for we are back and cringe in fear you sods who abuse sports.
