Johnson withdraws candidacy

Johnson Fernandez has withdrawn his candicacy for the secretary's post in the upcoming Malaysian Hockey Federation (MHF) elections.

In his text message to those concerned, the Malay Mail copy editor said he has informed KLHA of his decision.

"Some of us were meant to write sports, some to manage sports. I guess my calling is the former," said Johnson, who served as the sports editor of the Malay Mail (old version) from 1999 to 2003. This could pave the way for Sgt Hashim Mohd Yusoff to retain his post.

Does this mean he will remain in the new Malay Mail?

He has to, since the paper is losing so many of its staff.

Last I heard 8 and counting.

Johnson should not have backed out. Maybe he can contribute more than just thru his writings. There is a big different between being inside and outside.

but why did he back out? Johnson could have brought some much needed change and a different point of view.

oh, i hear circulation of malay mail is going up, despite leaving nst and its protection

Saudara,

Betulkah Malay Mail nak offer jawatan sports editor kepada kawan saudara, SS Dhaliwal?

Mana boleh? Tak adil!

Brother Rizal,
How come the local newspapers did not mention who were the delegates present in the recent meeting with TM Pahang ? Surprise!
How come one of the MHF VP, Secretary , Treasurer and some state secretary's were present? Are they turning the table over the present regime or just playing the ball game ? Most of them look like bump lickers.
Can't the present rigime take Diciplinay Action against them or they were the spies? These MHF fellows are always playing "bad stick" but they know the game. That is the name of the game. What ever it is I am safe sound that is as long as I hold the post is more than enough. Hockey goes down the drain or goes to the brink of disaster , its not my bussiness.That is MHF Officials.

Good Bye Malaysian Hockey !
