Okay ... the twitter full of the rage of Indonesian because of the "laser beam effect" Indonesia vs Malaysia in the soccer match at Suzuki Cup -  December 2010.

The latest news is that the Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono also complain about this match.


So here is my opinion regarding this StarWars "Soccer"


look at these articles:

Indonesia anger over lasers in Malaysia football match

The Indonesian president has said an official protest will be lodged with the Asean Football Federation about the alleged use of laser beams in an international against Malaysia.
Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was speaking after fans and players complained about the Suzuki Cup final match.
Indonesia lost 3-0 in the first leg in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday.
Football rivalry represents one of the many spats between Indonesia and Malaysia.
'Delighted'
Trouble began in Sunday's match in the second half when the Indonesian team claimed that Malaysian supporters had shone lasers directly into players' faces, including the captain, at several corner kicks, and the goalkeeper.
The game was halted for eight minutes as Indonesia's players left the pitch. When play resumed, Malaysia scored three goals in just under 12 minutes. 
"I instructed Andi to file an official complaint," Mr Yudhoyono told the official Antara news agency, in a reference to Youth and Sports Minister Andi Mallarangeng.
The second leg will be played in Jakarta on Wednesday.The Jakarta Post said that lasers reportedly also troubled the Vietnamese national team during a semi-final match against Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur.
Indonesian supporter Ahmad Susprianto, who was at the game in Kuala Lumpur, told news portal kompas.com he saw five people shining lasers at the players.
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said he was happy with the result.
"I am so truly delighted with the victory. The team gave a good performance tonight and the whole nation is proud of our team. They need another good performance in Indonesia," he said.
Indonesia had trounced Malaysia 5-1 in an earlier phase of the tournament.

A Weak Laser Beam Won't Affect Vision, Says Optometrist from bernama
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 27 (Bernama) -- A beam shone from far -- from the stadium terraces to the playing field, for example -- is weak and does not affect vision, an optometrist said on Monday.
This is especially so if a laser pointer is used, Dr Zahimi Chik said when commenting on an incident during the first-leg of the Malaysia-Indonesia final in the AFF-Suzuki Cup in Bukit Jalil Sunday night.
The match was stopped for five minutes after the Indonesian coach complained that Malaysian fans were dazzling his goalkeeper with a laser beam.
Zahimi, formerly of the Penang Eye Hospital, said that the beam of a high-powered laser of the kind surgeons use is dangerous to the eyes.
"This beam will damage the retina if it touches the visual point of the eye even briefly.
"But a beam from a laser pointer which is used by a lot of people now is not dangerous except at close range," he said.
Zahimi said that the laser pointer on sale to the public has a low capacity because it was produced with the safety of consumers in mind.
"You have to pay millions of ringgit for a powerful laser.
"It's impossible for spectators to bring into a stadium a laser that can affect vision," he said.
Also, with the constant movement in a game, Zahimi does not think that a beam can be shone at anyone on the field long enough to have any effect.
The return match of the final will be played in Jakarta this Wednesday with Malaysia having a three-goal cushion.

Fan laser beams mar Malaysia win over Indonesia
the times of India
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia's sports minister on Monday said he was upset at "unsporting" football fans who aimed laser beams at Indonesian players during an ASEAN Football Championships match which Malaysia won 3-0.
Malaysian fans among the 100,000-strong crowd at the national stadium in Kuala Lumpur late Sunday reportedly aimed laser beams at Indonesian players, forcing the game to be halted after 53 minutes.
The Indonesian players walked off the pitch in protest, and organisers warned fans that the match would be called off if their behaviour continued, according to The Star newspaper.
The game resumed six minutes later and shortly after the restart, Indonesia conceded three goals.
"I am upset. I am not happy at all, it's very unsporting for Malaysian fans to do so," youth and sports minister Ahmad Shabery Cheek said, promising there would not be a repeat of such incidents.
"We were worried about a clash between the fans so we have put in place measures to segregate them but using laser beams was rather a new thing to us," he said.
"I am not pleased at all. In fact I was embarrassed in front of my Indonesian guests," said the minister, who however hailed Malaysia's performance as a "big achievement".
Malaysia's victory in the first leg of the championships, formerly known as the Tiger Cup, puts them a step closer to their first Southeast Asian championship title.

okay ... this is my opinion ...

1. The Laser Beam is disturbing the Indonesian team, which I think Malaysian's Football Fans shouldn't do that.

"But a beam from a laser pointer which is used by a lot of people now is not dangerous except at close range," he said. Zahimi said that the laser pointer on sale to the public has a low capacity because it was produced with the safety of consumers in mind.

this statement from  Zahimi should be questioned further ...
I did a quick search in the amazon... just randomly pick a cheap laser pointer at amazon.



Fantastic as a star-pointer - easily visible at night time, the unusual bright color makes it much more noticeable, can be used as a professional tool for astronomers Portable kit works as handy torch, office/school presentation, etc Use your laser pointer to point at any desired targets on projection screens, video monitors, and presentation graphics Best choice of gift!

okay a cheap laser pointer can reach until 3000 meters... about the damage to the eye ... I can't be sure whether the laser can damage the eyes from the stadium to the Indonesian Team but for sure it will disturb their vision.

Potential Hazards
The hazards of laser pointers are limited to the eye. Although with most visible lasers, the largest concern is potential damage to the retina, most laser pointers are not likely to cause permanent retinal damage.
The most likely effects from exposure to viewing the beam from a laser pointer are afterimage, flashblindness and glare. Flashblindness is temporary vision impairment after viewing a bright light. This is similar to looking directly at a flashbulb when having a picture taken. The impairment may last several minutes.
Afterimage is the perception of spots in the field of vision. This can be distracting and annoying, and may last several minutes, although there have been reports of afterimages lasting several days.
Glare is a reduction or complete loss of visibility in the central field of vision while being exposed to the direct or scattered beam. This is similar to viewing oncoming headlights on a dark night. Once the beam is out of the field of vision, the glare ceases. While this does not pose a hazard to the eye, it can cause serious distraction and outrage. Glare can be exacerbated when the beam is reflected from a mirror-like surface. 

"You have to pay millions of ringgit for a powerful laser" 
well, very very very powerful laser yes, just a powerful laser no.... I can ship a powerful laser 200mW for just for $30 including shipping.... which able to burn matches,plastic in few meter distance if focused. 

2. Victory is victory. 
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said he was happy with the result.
"I am so truly delighted with the victory. The team gave a good performance tonight and the whole nation is proud of our team. They need another good performance in Indonesia," 

Well in my opinion, the lasers true enough was disturbing the play. But I think malaysia team also play their best. and malaysia score 3 goals in this Asean football championship vs Indonesia after the pause because Indonesia complained about the laser.  talking about soccer (a side track)... sometimes the referee also make a decision that disadvantage the other team, and the Fifa rejected to use the technology to track because they don't want to remove the human factor decision in the soccer / football.  
The game was halted for eight minutes as Indonesia's players left the pitch. When play resumed, Malaysia scored three goals in just under 12 minutes. 
well victory is still victory .... I just hope that Indonesian Soccer Team could cool down now and prepare to fight for the next match.

3. Poor management and issue handling from Malaysia side regarding this Soccer Laser Beam War... Why I say that? it's because Malaysia should have created a pre caution since Vietnam complained about this Footbal laser war in their match. The Soccer association should have done something about it.

4. I hope that Malaysia can do something regarding their fans, I believe that the Malaysian team itself will not be happy about this incident because they believe in their own strength. At least they should've have apologize to Indonesia and Vietnam.

If I'm in the tournament ... I want to win because of my / the team strength not because the external factor that help me to win. 

5. I hope that Indonesia in the next round of Suzuki Cup - the Asean Football Championship could prevent their fans to do similar thing to Malaysia team. it's true it may be unfair in the first match because what the Malaysia fans did but it doesn't mean that Indonesia fans should do the same thing. 

In the nut shell let victory be victory because either one of the team have put their best in the game without disturbance from external factor. Fans should be there to give encouragement and moral boast and believe their team will win. disturbing the game in any way showing that the fans do not have the faith on their team. 

Looking forward for the Suzuki Cup - Asean Football Championship Soccer Final Match between Indonesia VS Malaysia.

UPDATE: Indonesia Soccer / Football Fans did use the Laser towards Malaysia as well? Indonesia Fans (maybe) use the green laser to disturb Malaysia team as well.... okay ... just ban the laser ... end of story
