GOVT OVERSPENDS $283 MILLION ON YOG BUT REFUSE TO PAY FOR LIVE OLYMPICS

What really infuriates me about this whole incident is the government’s immense hypocrisy. They have no issues overspending our hard-earned money – $283 MILLION to be exact – on a sporting event almost no one cares about, but when it comes to Rio, they choose not to broadcast it live due to commercial reasons.

This is extremely rich, coming from a country that is the third RICHEST in the world. 2016 is supposed to be the breakout year for Singapore’s sports, following a successful SEA Games campaign last year.

An opportunity like this to unite Singaporeans will not come by so easily for a really long time. What kind of message is this sending to potential world-beaters and our current athletes when our government doesn’t even think they are important enough to spend money on.
