The S-League CEO, Mr Lim Chin, had to tell the Tanjong Pagar United Football Club players that they have to sit out for an entire season of S-League. Basically, he was telling them that they’re gonna be unemployed for one year.
How do you think a CEO should deliver such grave news to a bunch of people losing their livelihood?
Here are some choice quotes:
“One thing is clear is that the chairman of the club, and I mention, committee, is above all of you.”
But he later contradicts himself…
“Nobody is bigger than the club.”
Trying to define what players’ rights mean…
“Each of you have a right (but) the right has only that much.”
And then re-define volunteers as paid people…
“He is a volunteer and they are all volunteers, taking pay to run this club.”
Making football a numbers game…
“You must pass (2.4km run) at maybe 8.30 to prove that you are doing well.”
This S-League CEO managed to score many more own goals in an 85-minutes recording than the average S-League player could score goals in a 90-minutes football game!
No wonder he’s the boss and can kick teams out of the league!
