STTA must discard the “damaged ball”

In Uncategorized on 01/11/2016 at 6:59 am

Or should be the “bad egg”?

When STTA dropped Feng Tianwei from the national team when it announced its new strategy for the next Olympics, she suddenly became a cybernut hero. She joined Harry’s daughter, New Citizen Han Hui Hui, Roy M Ravi  as another hero of the nutty anti-PAP mob. If she had been retained, the mob would have roared for her dismissal, and rightly so: she failed to perform at the last Olympics, was aging and so culling her was par for the course.

I had half-expected her sliming by the mainstream brudders of The Idiots — S’pore (Or TISG as it prefers to be known) because

— the word it seems was out on FB “According to sources, there are reports that the official stance is to keep quiet while using the media to smear the reputation of an individual, all according to sources.”; and

— the FT MP godmother of the STTA has no class. Remember she tried to claim ctrdit for schooling’s gold medal? And her rows with STTA coaches?

We did get the sliming. But what happened next was a real surprise:

On Thursday night, its deputy president David Sim shed more light on reasons for her sacking on his Facebook page, describing her as a national disgrace and a “bad egg”. 

TMG

He also seemed to imply that the MSM sliming stories came from STTA:

“if this is not true then STTA will not reveal this news n FTW can sue STTA n why not ask her to do it if she is innocent.”

I’ll let TMG continue (do read the link on Sim’s comments because thay are defamatory):

The STTA has distanced itself from Mr Sim’s comments, which he has since deleted. They were his “personal” views, it said yesterday. But it also took the opportunity yesterday to tackle one point which could be a legal minefield if left to stand: allegations that she had made false claims.

It said: “Regarding the recent media reports, Feng Tianwei was cautioned about the proper claiming procedure, but she did not falsify nor claim more than what she was permitted.”

Well this isn’t enough given that David Sim is the deputy president and given that he said

“if this is not true then STTA will not reveal this news n FTW can sue STTA n why not ask her to do it if she is innocent.”

He was talking about the “eggs issue” (she had it was alleged made illegal claims for eggs) and the leaking of the news by the STTA. The president specifically cleared Feng over her claims after David Sim made the allegations. She also  Sim’s comments were his “personal” views.

Someone is not telling the truth and it sounds like David Sim given that the STTA has disowned his comments, saying “personal leh” and he has removed them. He still could be sued btw by the FT gladiator. I hope she does. Hey cybernuts walk the talk, crowdfund her.

And how can STTA say it’s his “personal” views that STTA was behind the newspaper articles. The STTA deputy president is accusing the STTA of sliming the FT gladiator, and STTA is not denying this claim?

So he’s the bad egg that must be thrown out if STTA is to be ever believed again.

As Donald Low a tua kee influencer scholar put it as follows on FB

The STTA says his comments do not represent the association’s views. But that position is untenable.

He also said

This* is way more dignified and mature than the crap that has been coming from STTA’s Vice President.

He was referring to the FT gladiator’s statement written in Mandarin to the media on Friday (Oct 28) Feng  hadsaid: “I hope I have the ability to improve the table tennis scene in Singapore and to show everyone that the support from the Singapore Government will reap benefits.”

Well said Ma’am.

STTA should use her PR advisers to remake its image because there’s more bad karma to come the STTA’s way what with SunT’s ST article, “Ex-coach lifts lid on STTA’s rift with Feng”.

Best to flush away a “bad egg” (is it a “damaged ball”?).
