    BWF had got it wrong with their funds/monies available

    .
    IMHO, BWF has got it wrong (with the funds/monies that they have available from us fellow BWF members).

    It should not be how BWF should be trying to attract better players to participate in their tournaments (by providing bigger prize monies); but how many more people BWF can attract people to view/follow their tournament matches.

    Currently, IMHO, BWF should spend more money on how to get more people to view/follow Badminton matches. Spending more prize monies on players to play Badminton won't work, IMHO.
