TALKING COCK

Well the MHF/MHC Secretary had a field day at the Press Launch of the MJHL this afternoon making snide remarks about my decision to decline the offer from Nestlé to to handle media services.

One of his remarks was that I was upset that he made media statements and that as Secretary he had every right to do so.

And since he has raised that issue publicly, I too shall reply in public via my blog.

Let us take a look at the statement he made yesterday and I reproduce it for the benefit of readers.

“Malaysia Hockey Confederation (MHC) secretary Maninderjit Singh said the MJHL will start as scheduled on Jan 19.

“We are happy to see more teams taking part in the MJHL. Although the Negri team submitted their entry late, the technical committee decided to make an exception,” said Maninderjit.

“We offered newcomers Sapura to play in Division One since they initially asked to play in the top flight.

“But they have also decided to stay put, leaving 17 teams in Division Two. We are happy with the current list and I am sure the Division One competition can go on with nine teams in the fray.”

Firstly the Technical Committee last met in January 6 and after that meeting, when there were only 25 teams confirmed the Chairman Dato Rahim Mohd Ariff made. Statement that they were looking for another team.

The issue of the Pahang team request was never discussed at the meeting.

Sapura were never made an offer to play in Division One and this talk of them declining is a blatant lie.

So with no meeting, who made that decision and what kind of statement us he making?

It is apparent that he is scared of his own shadow and since he has no decency to face up to the truth, let the truth prevail and make public the minutes of the meeting that was held to make the decision about sending a team to play in Division Two public.

Show us the letter to Sapura that offered them a chance to play in Division One and their letter to decline.

If not stop talking cock
