Alonso won on that day. But not a 'real win'. Massa had to let him pass and in the process deprived the fans of a potentially nail-biting duel. A duel was not good for the team as anything can happen. A possible 1-2 could end up with nothing at all. And the team was fined for that. Many people are not happy including this one.
This however, is not unique to F1. Yengkoz had our own team order last year, happened during the MCOBA Futsal Tournament. As we progressed, we suddenly we found out that 2 of the 3 teams that we sent to the competition had to face each other in the loser's pool semi-finals (or was it quarter finals?).
Being the lesser team of the 2, a team order was issued against my team. We were to lose so the other team can advance safely and compete for a podium finish !!! Damnnn.
And lose we did. It wasn't easy as we had to act serious and curb the suspicion of us throwing away our game. The other team progressed but I can't remember the exact outcome of the tournament.
Anyway, MCOBA Futsal 2010 will be held this Saturday. We are sending 2 teams this year to stand for our honour and to fight with valour, hahahaha...good luck. Am not playing this year. I am still reeling from the aftermath of the team order...
