Sudden resignation of K Enbaraj as KL Sukma assistant hockey coach.

"Leopards seldom change their spots" is a famous maxim which usually relates to people who consistently undertake matters which reasonable people would not contemplate. Such people do it with the intention of benefiting their group and ultimately themselves without caring for the consequences others face. These people tend to camouflage themselves in such a way by passing the "bug" to others by making them the sacrificial victims with a straight face and sweet talk. Their "chameleon" nature is such it is not easy to identify them because of their style and manner including the sort of people they keep company with. Indeed most people would not believe that such persons would exists and above all engage in these sorts of shenanigans.

This unusual breed of people generally have "double tongue" ie "what they say they do not mean and what they mean they do not say". They usually get away because the victims usually walk away without confronting them or they are influential enough that they get away with it. For such people this is a habitual aspect and it is a common feature in their daily life.

K Enbaraj today realised that the world is not a perfect place, and that talk and action usually do not co-relate. He found out that the actions of certain people can influence the destiny of others for no reason whatsoever. The point here is that they do not want to permit a young boy to play for a particular State, notwithstanding the fact that the player was not even selected by the protesting State. End of the day the argument decayed to a jargon of formality that the player was not granted official release. Mind you this is about a young boy who is probably Under 18 and rather than encouraging him to play, there are people who call themselves working for the best interest of Malaysian hockey and yet endeavour to disqualify the boy from playing.

This seems to be similar to a story where players were recruited by a leading club and when they were not needed, as there were to many players, they were not released so as they could not play for competitors. Why? They cannot become a threat to the team. The thinking is the team is more important than the whole of Malaysian hockey and the discarded players themselves. Such selfish thinking people can still find their way in administrating and managing Malaysian hockey. Even in such positions they can maneuver to equip their team with the various national players, thereby making their team the present and future national team. It is the art of positioning themselves and dangling the "carrots". Obviously it takes a person with great talent to do such things and probably the maxim of "the leopard seldom changing its spots" may truly manifest in such an instance.

This was Enbaraj's problem. He never comprehended this when he accepted to be Kuala Lumpur Sukma hockey team assistant coach. He was excited that there was a genuine desire to help the young boys. He himself was involved with UniKL and he saw how people worked there to get the young boys to become stars. He thought the same would also happen with the Kuala Lumpur team. There were differences in selection of players and he thought it was healthy, although at times he also felt there was no rationality. Still he continued forging ahead although he felt as assistant coach he had certain limitations as to his influence on matters, so as he does not undermine the chief coach. He was very careful not to overstep the position.

Enbaraj had to painfully accept certain decisions as it involved some of his UniKL boys. He did not protest over it nor make issues about it. He felt if the boys cannot find a place in the KL team they should easily work into other teams and this became the "saving grace" for him. If that was the case then Enbaraj would not have suddenly resigned as assistant coach of the KL Sukma hockey team. Today, he came to know that one of the young boys who was not selected would be playing for another State and KL was formally going to protest at the Manager's meeting on the grounds that they had not formally released him. Apparently Enbaraj requested KL not to protest and give the young boy the opportunity to play in Sukma. What complicated the issue for Enbaraj was the different "stories" told to him which tantamounted to misleading him with the intention to pacify him. Various officials from the very top to others were telling "stories", which seemed to be pointing fingers at others rather than themselves. This "topsy turvy" scenario had nothing to do with the issue at hand ie "why object to a KL discarded young player from playing for another State." It seemed more to do with not wanting another team to be strong.

Enbaraj felt he could not be a party to the protest and to the "stories" and on principle the situation did not offer any choice but to resign as assistant coach of the KL Sukma hockey team. It was a very brave decision and he did not want to be part of a group of people who were denying the righst of a young KL discarded player to play for another State in Sukma. More so, as Enbaraj has just finished the Junior League, he does not want to be seen as killing the aspirations of young boys.

Thank God for Enbaraj there were sufficiently reasonable minded people especially from MHF who overruled KL's protest and permitted the young KL discarded player to play for another State. Enbaraj resigned prior to the decision of the meeting as he felt KL should not have protested. All credit to Enbaraj for standing firm on a principle and above all being prepared to sacrifice his own position. A true servant of hockey.

The manager is a public servant. He should not resort to such acts which would likely to annoy the general public.

Well done Enbaraj for having the courage to 'walk the talk' but he should not have gotten involved with the team in the first place, not when it is coached by a drunkard and sex depraved moron and a tongue twisting tamby as the HA secretary. I hope it's a lesson well learnt.

Gandhi,

Looks like for KLHA winning matter most not how you win.

Afer excluding a young boy from the team then not allowing him to play seem like,one way of not allowing other team to be strengthen.(Is the development of the youth in their mind or their ego?)

If the young boy would to ask this questions?
Dear Sir,"Why are you not allowing me to develop my hockey,i am in the national junior squad,i want to improve my game and serve the country at my best.why are you doing this to me?

Mahatma Gandhi once said "If we are to reach real peace in this world.....we shall begin with chidren"

Marianne Williamson wrote for Nelson Mandela a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize as below

"Our deepest fear is not we are inadequate.Our deepest fear is that we powerful beyond measure.It is our light,not our darkness that most frightens us.We ask ourself.Who am I to be brilliant,gorgeos,talented,
fabulous?Actually,who are you not to be?You are a child of God.Your playing small does noy serve the world.There is nothing enlightened also about shrinking so that other people wont feel insecure around you,We are all meant to shine as children do.We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.It is not just in some of us.it is in everyone.And as we let our light shine,we unconsciously give other people the permission to do the same.As we are liberated from our own fears,our presennce automatically liberates others"

I will end with this "that's not that you won or lost but how you played the game.

Thank You.

there is a disciplinary board for players.(Create on for officials too)

KLHA officials who have acted such a way should be call to a special comittee or board so they can clear their name or ask to step down if its true.

We cant leave our children under them,they will kill their dream.

Leopard will never change its spot,unles you remove its skin.

Ganjaran untuk Sukma lepas KLHA hanya bayar 3000 dan 600.Majlis Sukan Wilayah Persekutuan kata RM500 x 12bulan =6000.00.(Bila menang emas)

Manalah baki duit?

MSWP harus menyiasat KLHA mana pergi baki duit atau MACC harus menyiasat MSWP.

Kita hanya pemain hoki.

Malaysia out of (Club) World Cup!

MALAYSIA blew their chances of playing in the Club World Cup in Barcelona next year when Kuala Lumpur Hockey Club (KLHC) lost 2-0 to Wapada of Pakistan in the final of the Asian Clubs Championships in Sri Lanka yesterday.
KLHC held the Pakistan side 2-2 in the pool match, but let in one goal in each half in the final.
The Malaysian side did not win a single penalty corner in 70 minutes, and officials claim they were robbed of three penalty strokes.

Matale Hockey Club defeated Wapda of Pakistan in the Asian Champions Club Tournament held in Makale Sri Lanka.

With some 2,000 fans cheering them on, Makale HC scored a goal in the first half and another two early in the second half to take a 3-0 lead. Wapda scored two late goals but failed to find the equaliser.

Better take Matale players for coming msian league. remove all the national players and caochse.

Bro,
why are we flogging dead horses? we all have short memories, then let me recollect your warp brains.
a) Sarjit singh: fixed games. 10/2, now living it up on ill-gotten funds and not paying back. He will get his dues soon.
B)Rajan: Famous Thigh Coach giving Malaysians a bad name by Drink,drink,fcuk,fcuk in thighland and his only success in Thighland is bring an'Anoy' back and Micheal Prasong Rajan.

So, you askeholes are still rooting for them. If you are proxies then do not bring up their names because you are doing a disservice to them because they have 'lobang' so big that all your praises cannot cover-up the wrongs that they have done.

If you all want to help them, do not mention their names in public again.

About Kuhan, please talk to him personnally and we think that he will give you an account of how Sapura treat him in time of sadness. So do not jump the gun and shoot your brains(if you have) out.

Look before you leap, suckers.

Hockey is a team game. He got his luck as to be born in kl and can simply lick his Project 2013 coach as$ for a place in the team. If it is that the only victory you mention, still a very long way to go for him........
