The round 2 of AFF 2010 final is today and I want to say a few things about the first round final match. During the play, there was a lot of complains about Malaysian supporters who uses green laser to bother Indonesian players. Even the majority of people blame this incident as the cause of lost on Indonesian side. I truly agree that this wasn’t a sportsmanship attitude and that is just a childish behaviour that doesn’t have a place for such glorious event.
However, I hate those who are blindly angry until the verge of bringing up old shit such as how Malaysia is a thief of Indonesian culture. I mean come on, have we enough of it already? And that discussion is clearly irrelevant as well as being stupidly petty. Some Indonesian people just can’t accept defeat gracefully. Hey, it’s football and there will be disturbance in the play. The players have to realize that and face it with professional mentality.
Besides, I don’t think we could blame Malaysians who used a laser pointer to disturb Indonesian team because there is no proof. And ok, if you guys want to go ahead thinking that the Malaysians did it because it was on their home turf and the laser was pointing to the Indonesian players. Now have a look at this video:
Zoom in to around minute 1:04 and can you see what happened there? There is a green light illuminating the Malaysian goalie and if you didn’t catch that, see the video here for a real slow-mo effect:
Now, I could also say that an Indonesian supporter was using laser because the match was on Gelora Bung Karno, Indonesia and it was pointing to a Malaysian player (in this case the goalie). If you say Malaysia is cheating using a laser then Indonesia might have as well cheated on their 5-1 victory. And to complain that we lost because of laser is just childish and ridiculous. This happens all the time even in the international level to a famous player such as Christiano Ronaldo:
I say, stop being such a winy douchebag and get your game straight. Lose is a lose and be done with it. No political talking, no irrelevant discussion over silly matter and be a professional already. Isn’t what really cause this is the media blowing up over Indonesia’s going to the AFF final and interview of many Indonesian players which cause them fatigue? If anybody, you should be hating the media for overhyping Indonesia’s victory and overtiring Indonesian players with all those interview. It’s time to go back to Earth and face the reality that we are trailing 3-0. Best luck to Indonesia and do your best on the second round of AFF final match.
