Singapore Slingers WIN but snubbed by Mediacorp NEWS

Singapore Slingers Logo

Last night APLINK and some friendly bloggers and, pingsters were again treated to an evening with the Singapore Slingers… They won fantastically ! 119 to 102 over the Brisbane Bullets… a shock as reported by The
AGE in Australia (see Below) The early start time gave plenty of time to amble home from the stadium and catch the 930pm NEWS on Mediacorp’s channel 5, I sat there getting excited for the Slingers that their triumph would make the sporting news…BUT nothing was reported, not even a mention. On arrival at the game it is obvious the marketing is workin for the Slingers as the crowd numbers were up, sponsorship too looks like it is heading skyward seeing the sponsors logo’s and corporate boxes all full…so what does MediaCorp TV News need to have happen to realise that Basketball is making a place for itself in Singapore ?
