STTA kowtowing to a FT?/ Who’s the “bad” egg, David Sim?

Feng Tianwei will be able to continue participating on the ITTF World Tour circuit with the backing of the Singapore Table Tennis Association (STTA), according to a joint statement by the STTA and Sport Singapore (SportSG) on Friday night (Nov 4).

The statement also confirmed that the world no 5 will continue to be considered for selection to represent Singapore in international competitions, under selection policies to be revealed.

The decision to drop Feng from the national team had stirred plenty of debate online, what with defamatory allegations of her misdemeanours in the constructive, nation-building media and by the STTA’s deputy president, allegations that were subsequently denied by the STTA and the player. The STTA’s deputy president also took down his FB allegations, one of which implied that the STTA had told the MSM about her “misdemeanours”.

Given that she could sue him and the media (that he implied was briefed by the STTA on her “misdemeanours”) for defamation, could the decision to allow her to

— continue participating on the ITTF World Tour circuit; and

— be considered for selection to represent Singapore in international competitions, under selection policies to be revealed,

be the price of keeping her happy ie from suing?

In other words is STTA kowtowing to a FT that it’s deputy president, one PAP grassroot leader, David Sim, called a ‘”bad” egg’? See him no ak isit STTA?

Or is it to protect said PAP grassroot leader from the consequences of his behaviour? Better to kowtow to PRC FT, than for PAPpy to kanna sue?

What do u think?
