    Please search the Malaysian Prof Players thread. Every year, there's a report on LCW's (&Nicol David) estimated earnings. It's more than MYR1 million a year for LCW. LD is reported to earn more

    Wow. With that much moola LD doesn't just need someone to count his money; he needs someone to count the people who are needed to count his money.

    Quite a lot more I think, LCW and LD are covered by a lot of personal endorsements .....

    Taufik too, especially when he was in his prime during Olympic and World Champion days. In fact, it is said that Taufik's net worth is even more than LCW or LD.

    Yup, the top echelons do get paid well - but it takes a lot to be at the top.

    1 or 2 million US dollars is really that not much for the top 2 players of a sport in the world. In another thread discussing players' car, I remember some people said both LCW and LD have multiple expensive sport cars like Ferrari's, Lamborghini's.... especially they are way more expensive in China because of import tax. I would expect their earnings should be in the 7 digits level.

    Professional badminton is like a monopoly/duopoly. You only get the $$$ if you're at the very top and winning series after series. This is largely because of the "quality" gap between the best player and a top player where you hardly see anyone out of the Top 5 winning any event.

    For LCW, LD & TH...their national hero statuses will guarantee them many big money personal and business contracts

    With his political connections, I'm thinking that some of the properties like those supercars that he's had are given to him as gifts.

    My statement is possibly pretty correct. Any doubters?
