FOOTBALL SPARKS OUR READERS INTEREST

Sports rule as our Sports Notes columns took seven slots on our NR Top 10 ratings. One Video Beat television column and on Phnom Penh column also took their place in the Top 10. Our 2008 Year In Review Part 2 rounded out the Top 10.

FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST - Once a Falcon now an Eagle the question is, is Michael Vick on the road to recovery and those were the words that helped our Sports Notes column about the return of Michael Vick to the NFL which topped our NR Top 10 most read stories for the period of August 10 to September 10. The column also rated as our fastest rising story for this period.

The ever popular David Beckham notched the second position. We noted the abuse the English national suffered from American soccer fans that was prompted by a book accusing Beckham of not being a dedicated and good teammate for the LA Galaxy.

Former American Idol contestant Sanjaya Malakar proves there's more to him than AI judge Simon Cowell sees as he rocked the charts by taking the number three slot. Malakar is a contestant on the reality series I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here that is currently being televised in the Southeast Asian region. The fan interest proves that Malakar has appeal though Cowell may not think so.

Soccer continued to dominate our charts as an oldie but apparently a goodie from November 2005 regarding the Cambodian National team being denied participation in the Sea Games by its own Olympic Committee. The piece also notes the disarray of the Cambodian Football Federations questionable handling of the finance and payment to its players to the extent where then manager Joachim Fickert paid the team out of his own pocket to the extent of being owed over $70,000 by the Federation.

More stories about ASEAN football sparked our readers interest as another oldie from January 2006 titled SEA Games $#!T Hits The Fan which was a follow-up on the Cambodian team being denied participation in the games. The Hit The Fans story noted the game fixing that was exposed during the competition and that took the fifth top story spot.

In the sections most visited department Cambodia Sports continues to maintain a strong interest in moving up one notch from 2nd to first. The NBA fell from first to 10th and Soccer/International Football made a strong return to the charts taking the second position.

Our Archives section fell one spot to the sixth position. This past month we have split the section into five sections including sports, television, travel, Phnom Penh and features. Our Biz Who Is section returned to the charts and took third place while our boxing also returned securing the seventh position.

With the UP Open being decided tennis is in the air therefore from our tennis archives a story from 1999 featuring the Williams sisters defying all odds and criticism. This story came about during the 1998 Virginia Slims tournament in Los Angeles, California. The sisters were being blasted by the media about important things such as the beads in their hair. Comments were made by some of the media who didn't feel their father Richard was handling the girls properly.

At that time we predicted that the girls would reach number one in the rankings. Our predictions were answered by the girl's stellar play enabling both to achieve number one rankings and obviously Richards's child rearing can't be faulted. Enough said?

You also get a sense that they know they're young but it's not a factor it's a case of... if you're over 18...YOU'RE TOO OLD. There's nothing going to help you...EVENTUALLY WE'RE GOING TO WIN IT ALL.
