As a university student, it has come to my intention to share this experience with the rest, the dilemma of bureaucracy in an organisation based on my experience that is happening in any place in this temporary world.
Dear friends, below are the irresponsible attitudes of some people who abuse the power that they have for their own self benefit that has been puzzling me since day one in this university:
1. How could this 'someone' who is a member of the tournament's organising committee be a referee during his own team's match? A university student should be sensible enough to understand the definition of 'fairness' in any aspect of life.
2. How could this 'someone' who claims to be the manager of this particular team but his name was not in the team's list and this 'someone' even played for the match and at the same time been the referee for other matches?

However, as the English saying goes 'Life is not a bed of roses'. I learned a lot from this, eventhough it is a small issue but I hope this kind of attitude will not happen again in the future in any tournament or organisation in my beloved country, Malaysia. If this attitude goes on, our sports status will stay the same and to lift it on par with Japan or Korea would just remain an unreachable imagination that will only remain a dream.

Forget about the slogan 'Play fair, enjoy the game, and may football unite us all' and start reminding ourselves of 'Being fair yields a fair game, there goes the unity in sport that we have been dreaming of'

As Frederick Bailes once said ,'Man’s power of choice enables him to think like an angel or a devil, a king or a slave. Whatever he chooses, mind will create and manifest'

Goodluck to the teams who are going to the semis.
