The coach who plumbed volleyball to new depths

Date of incident, 16 December 2022

Place: Teen Volleyball Championship for the under 14s (B-14) Malaysia 2022 in Johor.

A coach slaps two players, then says he only did it to motivate the team. Shame on him. He is a bully and a coward. He attacked two helpless girls. Saiful Hadee Amar, 44 years old, deserves to be sacked and face the full force of the law.

A father of one of the two girls agrees with the coach. In fact he said, ” What’s the big deal? Why make an issue out of this small matter? My daughter was not injured…” He went on and praised the coach. (Daft man…he wants his daughter to have a dislocated jaw or bleeding or have a tooth knocked out?)

So, is this father suffering from Stockholm Syndrome?

A sports executive committee member said “Case closed, no further action.”

Girls and women in Malaysia are treated worse than animals.

Slapped, told what to wear, what to study, etc etc

If you do not speak out now, then in ten years time, we will end up a decrepit nation

(Note: Stockholm syndrome includes other types of trauma in which there’s a bond between the abuser and the person being abused.)The video is self explanatory

If you were a parent, what would your reaction be?

If you were in the audience, would you have reported the coach?

If you had watched the video clip below, what is your reaction and what would you do?

If you were the sports executive committee member, how would you react?
