The group calling themselves 102 former hockey internationals undertook an unique and unprecedented historical exercise of an "open letter", with signatures from 1o2 former Malaysian hockey internationals, addressed to YAB Deputy Prime Minister, as Chairman of Cabinet Committee on Sports and also to the Minister of Youth and Sports, bringing to their attention the deteriorating state of Malaysian hockey. Their call attracted significant attention particularly by the Minister himself.
Apparently in meeting them the Minister wanted the group to put their views in writing and literally wanted a proposal on how best to overcome Malaysian hockey's fortune taking account of the current predicament. They were given a time period of a month to undertake the task.
The group was serious about the call to do something for hockey and they fulfilled their promise and was ready with their proposal. The arrangements to get a formal presentation to the Minister was only possible after the Parliament reconvened and presentation was done on the 3rd week of October.
Now that the formal presentation is over and the so called tenure of the group has ended, today they have posted the proposal on their own blogspot. As to why now, and not much earlier, the reason was to avoid having any influence on MHF's election. Sources indicate that the group wanted to remain independent of the election.
