Get your act right NSC!

Everyone wants power but as Peter Parker (Spiderman) was told, "with great power comes great responsibility"

However, some take responsibility a bit too seriously as they are fixated by power and want controlling everything. Power can also lead to destruction.

In this case, the athletes and Malaysian Sports are the ones who will suffer.

National Sports Council (NSC) named national diver Pandelela Rinong as the flag bearer for the Olympics opening ceremony march but DO THEY HAVE THE POWER TO SO DO???

The answer will depend on who you ask but fact remains that it is the responsibility of the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM). NSC can merely recommend a candidate.

I find it humorous how NSC have written to OCM suggesting Pandelela but NSC director general Datuk Zolkples Embong went on to name her as the flag bearer the next day despite receiving no acknowledgement from the Olympic body.

OCM believes, and rightly so, that they have the final say as appeared in today's Malay Mail.

Nt: This not gutter journalism as we have nothing personal against NSC, Datuk Zolkples Embong or Pandelela, who I must say is a top notch diver. But for NSC to name the flag bearer despite not having authority just smacks arrogance!
