"Below is the text of the comment: This is my personnal contributions which i sincerely hope to assist in your effort.
i cannot be counted to be 'greats' as you all are but i have been playing and following Malaysian's Hockey for nearly 50 years and i was shocked to see its freefall only this last few years.

There were alot of contributing factors to the decline but one area that is pertinent missing to my unbuyous observation is:

1) Have quality personality manning all strata of the MHF.
Like not having a Gen-Sec who cannot even speak and write proper internationally used language.

2)Assisting Coaches and Officials for any National setup must have status and charisma and.............(deleted)
3) MHF Committes members must be manned by normal beings ...........(deleted).

4) All official must be competent in operating electronic equipments and not like videoing with the cover on.(it happened in Germany)

Please sepuloh- dua, i will be watching whether you all make this mistakes, if you all do, then woe betide you all.

Proud to know that there re people like you all and do not let nay-sayers throw you all 'off-track' as all of them are 'hanger-ons'.

Forward MHF, Malaysia Boleh.
