Yet another netball topic

I had a chance to meet and chat with a male netball player from South Africa last night when my friends and I went to Sekolah Sukan Bukit Jalil (SSBJ) to watch a friendly match between those SSBJ girls and this team from South Africa. His name is Brian and according to kak Mazlah (she was the referee that night and often joins us in our training), he’s the coach for the South African team. Cool! :)

At my urging (hehehehehe..) kak Mazlah introduced us and we had a little chat together with the team manager, I think. He informed us that there are quite a number of men’s netball teams in South Africa. They even have national tournaments soon. Isn’t that great? Quite unlike here in Malaysia. But then, men’s netball is still considered new here. Not to mention there’s that old crone in the Malaysia’s Netball Association who adamantly refuses to acknowledge men's netball. Hmmm… I wonder when will somebody replaces her. About time, I think.

Incidentally, if there is a national tournament for men, which state am I to play for if I was chosen to play with a state team? I’m from Sabah but I now reside in KL. So do I play for Sabah or KL? But then, I’ve probably retired from playing by the time they have national tournaments for men. Hahahaha…

Hey, you guys.. what do you think? Should there be a national tournament for us? Comments please…

Come on guys.. give her a break, will you? Yes, she trains with us but that's just it. We are her friends. Nothing more, nothing less. In fact, that puts her in a major dilemma because she knows that other teams would look at her sideways and thought she will be biased towards us. Which, obviously, is what is happening now.

Personally, I find your comments on her extremely unfair. If you don't like her as a referee, then why don't you request with the organiser not to ref your game? As simple as that.

What I don't understand is why is there such bad blood between the teams in men's netball? There are only so many of us, you know.. and I truly feel that this whole thing is really unnecessary. We compete in tournaments and it is the nature of tournaments that some will win, some will lose. All of us should accept that gracefully and train some more to improve our skills. This vendetta is really a waste of time.

Lastly, I never said that I am very good in netball. I've only been playing for about six months. There's still room for me to improve. However, I can safely say that I am better than most.

I trade only stocks right now but I've heard people swear by trading futures or forex. I've never tried either. Is one more volatile and therefore easier to make more money?
