The Soh Rui Yong saga – All for nothing

Singapore sports cannot excel if the sportsmen and athletes cannot put food on the table. Period. Don’t ever think of getting world class athletes for free.
 

In many countries, the sports champions are paid handsomely, financially very well rewarded for sports excellence. Singapore’s table tennis team did well because the foreign players are paid to play. For the other sports, if they did well, it is sheer dedication and sacrifices. Runners like Soh Rui Yong, Dipna Lim Prasad and Shanti Pereira are trying their best with the little financial support they got from their sponsors to run. What great difference would it make if they could run full time, no worry about lack of a decent income, and can concentrate fully on their sports?
 

It is high time the national bodies spend real money to support the outstanding sportsmen and athletes to push them to their limits and be among the best in the world. Of course the criteria for financial support must justify by the performance of the athletes and be commensurate with their world standings.
 

Our masters just returned from an Asian Meet with 4 golds, 5 silvers and 9 bronzes without a cent coming from the govt. This is the kind of support the govt is giving to these senior athletes. Old and forgotten, not to be seen, not to be heard?
 

Why did I say Soh Rui Yong saga was all for nothing? In the first place, what is $10,000 to the govt? And what is $2,000 to SA? These are not even peanuts, insignificant, paltry sum for the beggars. But it means a lot to a struggling athlete trying to make ends meet and with financial responsibilities to the families.
 

There is an easier way out to this petty issue. It is all bad administration, bad policies and execution. There would be no problem by changing the rules and procedures. Just give the $10,000 to the runners and $2,000 to the SA. Problem solved. QED. Or if someone is so mean and think the runner is deserving of only $8,000, then give the runner $8,000 and SA the $2,000 without having to irritate the runners by saying 20% will be deducted from his awards for SA. This is pure administrative foul up that is designed to create unhappiness.
 

See, all for nothing with a stroke of the pen. And these buggers are still scratching their heads, still bitching and not knowing how to solve this little irritation due to bad administrative policies and procedures, all because of $2,000! Unbelieveable!
 

Stupidity has no cure.

Great. You just highlight what is happening for our CPF money.
The government simply says 2.5 % for you, and they quietly keep the rest ($billions).
If only the government says here is your 7% returns, and you must pay them 4.5% for their great support. Many citizens will have realized they are being robbed blind.

//The Soh Rui Yong saga – All for nothing..//

..uncle RB, ..for again this is what the MIWs PAPies motto - ' What's wrong with collecting more monies from Sinkies?' From top to bottom every Sinkies monies will be sucked dry, yep high & dry till no blood & no monies left for you with u. Pity for Ah Soh as this monies is for him to feed himself & his family & his coach. The SA can just request monies from Garmen, normal athletes how? Can't even survive & where got time & moines to go for competition?...it's a sad Sport scene in Sinkieland..

Many, especially the young ones are conned going into Sports professions as well as been Trainers.

In Sinkieland Sports, local Sportsmen and Women are paid pittance. The instructors and trainers are also paid pittance.

They used their Youths just for the Glory of the PAPies.

We must also achieve Sports Brilliance in the World Areana for their Credits to their Elites besides been a First World Nation.

My daughter spent two years going into Sports Science and became a Trainer and instructor to many young athletes been paid a pittance as compared to her previous career in the Research Lab.

Idealists been conned by the Government to be what's Sports Champions and living and earning like Paupers.

From a Four figure salary to a Two Figure one. Many youngsters been conned into Sports Schools with no future.

Luckily, she quits and now with her previous job having a more comfortable lifestyle than spending ten hours in rain and shine.

Chinese looked like Malay.In Sinkieland, you can never earn a living in Sports. DONT be conned just for their Glory.

GKS and LKY in our earlier days said no place for such extravagant luxuries professions in Singapore. That's why we dont even have a Sports Science and Medicine course in our Unis.

DONT be stupid to play into the hands of those who cajoled and encouraged you into these professions. It's only for their Glory making use of you.

With a two figure salary, within the blinking of the eyes, you be retired and be a Pauper whereas the Rest be laughing at your Stupidity.

RB is right! This taxation (20%) is ridiculous. The association did not help much but just sit there like a gangster to demand hard earned cash from winners. The only thing that of value to athletes is the name under which they compete in.

All these Sports Associations are hemmed by the PAP cronies with so many power crazy lunatics and so much in Fighting.

They have the same mentality like their Masters to extort as much MONIES from the poor Sinkies.

Just be careful now when you are now crossing many roads even away from overhead bridges and traffice lights crossings.

They are on a campaign's of collecting more monies for their Treasury and their million dollars salaries. The Anti So Called Jaywalking of collecting more monies is on.

Just the other day crossing from RedHill Market to a bus stop. Was stoped by Traffice Cops on
either side of road with Blue uniformed men ready to come after you if you ignored their summons.

They said for your own Safety. Just paid the fine for your own Good.

Today one Zaobao reporter claimed that Ah Soh is wrong in this Award Money saga. The local msm painted Ah Soh as INGRATS! Kind of a spoilt brat influence by Western Democracy. In Asian culture, Ah Soh is a ingrats & never perform that 饮水思源 ( or know the water source) into practice. This MSM failed to understand Ah Soh view point & wanna destroy his image...another mouthpiece of the MIWS Pappies..

It's very obvious you lack the mental masturbation skills of PAP Millionaires.

If you give the runner $10,000 and then force the runner to give $2,000 to SA.
What's the result?
The runner still has to pay tax on $10,000 tio bo?

COMPARE WITH:
Pay the runner $8,000 and pay $2,000 to SA directly;
The runner only gets taxed on $8,000
AND
the SA gets taxed on $2,000

"With you, For You, For Singapore" ... my fucking lancheow.

Sports games were invented by angmos to con people money.
FIFA, Worldcup, F1 are all about money and advertising income.
Stop supporting sports will make this world better and greener.
Lots of waste generated.

Puerto Rico Bonds Crash To Record Low After Trump Says Debt May Need To Be "Wiped Out"

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-10-04/puerto-rico-go-bonds-collapse-after-trumps-were-gonna-wipe-out-comment
--------------------------------

Let's hope GIC and Temasek do not own any Puerto Rico bonds.

Anonymous said...

Didn't they announced a loss of $46b or is it $43b for year 2016? Does it matter with a difference of $3b? Or does it matter if they own Puerto Rico Bonds?

How many zeros are there in $46b? 46,000,000,000! How many years would it take to accumulate or make this amount?

Anonymous said...

The loss of $46b will be swept under the carpet for sure.

The AHTC issue will always be around until the next GE or when they need to distract the dafts when they themselves face important questions.

How much is left or where are the reserves now will never be revealed, when they make sure that the PE is their own left hand.

Ownself check ownself, no need to reveal right? Just mention the word 'secret' and no one will be allowed to ask questions.

And remember, your CPF is their CPF. They are the owner of your HDB flat. They know the daft will always believe that.

If PAP government takes back our HDB flat after 99 years;
And make us all buy new, replacement flats.
PAP can easily make $46 billion in less than one year.

True or not?
You tell me lah.

After 27 years of million dollars yearly basic salaries starting from GCT, money-based leadership for themselves, the fruits of scholars' no risk-taking mental paralysis has permeated the whole LHL administration, with Ho Jinx big purse throwing agong money at turning top talents into spineless bootlickers in various sectors.
With Temasek $275bln, MAS $353bln and GIC about $470bln of national reserves this mental paralysis facilitated by very fat ownself compensate ownself phenomenon can continue for a long, long time if 70% Sinkies don't wake up to the "squeeze the Sinkies dry policy". Singaporeans had paid a lot of taxes, charges, COEs, tariffs, permit fees, licence fees, etc for the nation to accumulate more than $1 trillion national reserves funds. Indeed Pappies are masters in daily brainwashing of Sinkies into ignorant fearful citizens.
