Below is Part 2 and it too reveals some interesting "stories". Facts or fiction is for one to analyse based on logical thinking taking account of the prevailing scenario in Malaysian hockey.
"If they know the term “prudent management” why MHF did incurred the heavy debt hosting the Champions Trophy? When in most sporting events the host seem to be pocketing millions in revenue.
Obviously when the final contract was drawn, the representative from MHF did not understand the terms and clauses in the contract. They could be illiterate in the vetting of the contents in the contract. The “Bodoh Sombong attitude” may be the cause for not engaging a lawyer to act on MHF behalf hence the “Laywer Buruk” was in action. Even the construction of the cameraman platform, MHF has to fork out what is believed to be around RM 30K. Additional speakers were installed, does it make any sense when the NHS 1 which already have the existing speakers from Commonwealth games cannot cater for the Champions Trophy. Why when the speakers are good enough for Commonwealth games why are they not good enough for Champions Trophy?
To add on, some close with the current group who are now loosing faith said that MHF representatives did not understand the contract contents because of their low English proficiency and IQ level. The regular used vocabulary like no problem lah, brother, what time tea?, besok cuti, letih kah, bodoh, why cannot? Sure can lah...etc did not find its way to the contract. One was said not having the knowledge to even start-up the computer. So these are the hard facts from the Champions Trophy MHF contract negotiators who are responsible for the RM1.7 million debts the Government/tax payers has to bear eventually. Some have also questioned why a Bangsar restaurant since the official hotel was Palace of the Golden Horses. Who was the restaurant owner? Who actually dinned there since the bill from the Restaurant was also eye popping matter but covered-up?
Well the deterioration of Malaysian hockey did not matter to them as the second class businessman continues to milk MHF. It was rumoured that a 10% commission was paid to this group since some money transaction was under one of their names. The MHF Constitution was probably amended otherwise they have abused their powers. State affiliates please do the right thing! Ambition by this group to make more money continue to be their fantasy with rumours brewing that they have formed an Event Management company to bring in finds in return for 30% commission. Why an event management company, when all along NSC is funding everything from A to Z.
The money lending and gambling allegations remains unsolved. Can these characters stand for elections in the first place? With these allegations lingering over their heads, the issue of credibility shall be the question the authorities would like see the change in the candidates contesting. Is this the actual reason why the investigation cannot be closed? And regularly the reason that police is still investigating the case is used as an excuse when these issues are brought up for discussion. Are they buying time until after the election is over to announce the findings? Are facts from the police investigation so damaging to these characters that they need to mitigate by the late announcement of the truth?
Never mind those allegations that are still being investigated. What about those offences which these characters were guilty of in the past. One was suspended for hitting an umpire with a stick but got his sentence reduced by pulling cables in MHF. One character settled out of court his assault case on a hockey player after the match in the changing room.
These are the notorious characters going to run the association and represent Malaysia at internationally platform. As we approach October the full take over plot is high in their agenda. To get out of the RM1.7M financial crisis, rumours are that anyone who brings in RM3 million sponsorship will be guaranteed of the Deputy Presidents post.
With the above facts and view, in no circumstance can this group of unethical individuals continue to manage MHF. The need to have a complete “overhaul” is very timely and necessary. The existing Council members must make way for others to redeem Malaysian pride and restore the standard of Malaysian hockey back to its prime. With issues of Integrity and Credibility in MHF current set-up the authorities and public will not back them to carry on managing MHF.
Note: - Please do not be surprised if you are the state association and find 500 hockey sticks delivered to your office doorsteps in the next few days. This could be the result of their excellent fire fighting technique since this article have exposed the empty promises syndrome which is at the moment rated with a score of 10.
Hockey enthusiasts let’s take the bull by the horns to stop the rot!
Is there truth in what was outlined above? This information in a way has frozen my brains. I always thought that people were seeking positions in National Sports Associations (NSAs) to serve the sport, the nation and of course for a bit of glamour too. Surely only a minority must be engaged in such activities, and hockey may be an exception. Whichever way, it is still bad and something must be done so as it does not spread like a "cancer" and ultimately it become "terminal".
The Affiliates of MHF must ensure that MHF is "clean" of such things as it is their responsibility. Anything otherwise would mean that the Affiliates are blameworthy for permitting it.
