Ban the bookies!

Read Malay Mail's expose here. If the bookies are allowed to reign supreme, what will happen to the game in Malaysia? I was in the thick of the action when the scandal in 1994/95 robbed the game of its purveyors, including one Kedah striker and a Johor-born Terengganu utility player who was good enough to land a contract in France had his career not cut short by this scourge. We lost a generation and we are still coming to terms with it!

Nothing new here. Which is why I will stick to the EPL, and the Champion's League!

If you are really into the local leagues, bro, check why KL Plus is suddenly playing like shite. Rumour has it that they are not being `influenced' properly. LOL.

You'll never walk alone, bro!

I read the expose. Yes, it speaks of match fixing. But was there even a iota of raw evidence to actually back up the story. The comment from the police was very general- almost as if the MM was putting words in the mouth of the cops.
Come on. This is not investigative journalism. It is just shooting from the hip and we all know that Mr Johnson Fernandez is very good at that. The football expose was crappy stuff and Im sorry that you Rizal, are taken up by it.

do you know that the story is more hogwash than anything else? that the reporter do only half past six work and rely heavily on his 'suspect' informers to give him the info.....

do you also know that the relevant parties are now looking at possibility of suing the reporter and the paper...simply becoz whatever he has, it will not stand in court....talk about the reporter being a law graduate (refer rizal previous posting)....hampeh!

hello brother,
Advice your friend to stop it ler. Orang bagi dia website itu untuk periksa result tapi dia pandai-pandai buat cerita bookie. Gila ker..
Is it a crime for players to have lavish lifestyles. Better do a background check on these players. Maybe they come from rich families.
Malay Mail memang macam itu. Dulu buat cerita hoki World Cup..tau salah terus diam...

Bro;

Talking bout bookies dgn bola FAM, letih la. Kalau nak di kaji baik juga investigate, football officers or coaches yang involve dgn team/players, buat Komission dari gaji players pun boleh di kira rasuah juga bang. Masa zaman ada foreign players dulu, pengurusan transfer certificate pun boleh dapat habuan, tu pun kira macamana? Ini players performs dibawah par sikit dah suspicious, apa ni adil lah sikit, boleh bawa berbincang dengan shebby, rasanya dia pun tahu juga sikit-sikit

loser walk alone

NAk tuduh coach atau official ada masyuuk pasal bawak masuk players dalam team tu takde bukti. Tapi ikut logik, mcm mana dia boleh pilih players yang digugurkan oleh state lain dan bawak masuk dlm team baru dia?
Ada asas kan?
