    .
    Maybe, it's time to change the name from Badminton to Goodminton.

    Then we would find GOOD boys. :p:p:p

    Yes, both NSC and the Ministry of Sports have a 'special' interest in badminton.

    To work as servants for our beloved Badminton

    .
    What I meant in this post;

    is:

    Badminton will be used by politicians for their own good (power/status), instead of for them to work as servants for our beloved sport.

    Unfortunately badminton in Malaysia and Indonesia is the national sport

    unlike other countries and it is difficult for the government to stay away.

    What Ong Ewe Hock recommends is probably best, in recent times Msia had a great

    team only when players were from both BAM and Nusa as in the 90s.

    In Msia it is difficult to have private clubs as big as Djarum possibly because the sponsors are not as

    big as the big tycoons in Indonesia.

    Please release me, let me go

    .
    Lyrics for us to sing along;

    Please release me, let me go
    For I don't love you anymore
    To waste our lives would be a sin
    Release me and let me love again

    I have found a new love, dear
    And I will always want her near
    Her lips are warm while yours are cold
    Release me, my darling, let me go

    (Please release me, let me go)
    For I don't love you anymore
    (To waste my life would be a sin)
    So release me and let me love again

    Please release me, can't you see
    You'd be a fool to cling to me
    To live a lie would bring us pain
    So release me and let me love again
    (Let me love, let me go)

    :):):)

    2011 Malaysia Open SS: Chong Wei hugged his coach Misbun after the explosive win

    .
    From The Star

    REPORTS by RAJES PAUL

    THERE was thunderous applause when Misbun Sidek made a surprise entrance into the arena with Lee Chong Wei at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil last night.

    And boosted by the unexpected presence of Misbun, who assumed his position on the coach’s seat, top seed Chong Wei went on the offensive to crush Hong Kong’s Hu Yun 21-6, 21-9 in just 23 minutes to check into the quarter-finals.

    The world No. 1 will take on Nguyen Tien Minh of Vietnam today for a place in the semi-finals. And a meeting with China’s Lin Dan tomorrow is very much on the cards. The world and Asian Games champion is up against compatriot Chen Long in the quarter-finals.

    Chong Wei hugged his coach Misbun after the explosive win over Hu Yun and later at the press conference said that he was happy that his coach had kept his promise to be by his side during the Malaysia Open.

    “I was surprised when he showed up during the warm-up session but I was happy. I hope he will stay on until the end of the tournament,” he said.

    When asked whether Misbun was back for good, Chong Wei said: “I am not sure of that. Let my coach settle matters with the BAM (Badminton Association of Malaysia).

    “I will stay focused on my mission here. I have beaten Tien Minh in most of our meetings and I hope to keep the good record against him.”

    Misbun, however, did not stay on after Chong Wei won his match and left via the back exit of the stadium.

    The BAM’s secretary, Ng Chin Chai, said that Misbun, who had informed the association of his decision to quit as national coach on Dec 31 via email, turned up in a response to their letter to him last week.

    “We sent a letter to Misbun to reconsider his decision to quit after the exco meeting. In the same letter, we told him to put the national interests first and help Chong Wei, at least during the Malaysia Open,” he said.

    “He did not get back to us but by showing up here, it shows that he has responded to our letter.”

    Chin Chai added that the BAM council would look into Misbun’s resignation on Sunday.

    This positive turn of events may indicate that it will not be too long before Misbun gets back into the national fold as a coach.

    However MS's exit is not supposed to be as passionate as the above.

    BAM cannot be assumed as "darling" to MS. In fact MS "demanded" to part company instead of a request to do so. For not to do so will be wasting his time since his suggestions to CTC has not met with due consideration.

    Perhaps LCW is and MS certainly loves to "cling" on to him and vice versa and not allow him to go for it will bring great pain if forced upon by BAM. MS has not found a new love yet and his first baddy love is LCW, followed by son Ramdan. :D

    Was Lee Chong Wei produced by the BAM committee or by BAM coach, Misbun Sidek?

    .
    And also, I would like to debate on this subject:

    Was Lee Chong Wei produced by the BAM committee or by BAM coach, Misbun Sidek?

    I would say an athlete needs whatever support the country has to offer.

    1. The country must first be interested in sports (badminton) and channel whatever resources it could muster to encourage it. Gaining an Olympic gold is an attractive goal for most governments.

    2. A proper and effective system should be set up to encourage mass participation e.g. in schools, clubs, public, etc.

    3. This would include unfortunately, a central body like the National Sports Council and the various games bodies like BAM to kick start and maintain interest. Unfortunately because one has to deal with the administration and red tapes, committees and competing personalities, maybe with different objectives.

    4. Without recognition and support by the respective organizations, the game cannot grow and produce talented athletes to represent the country and bring honour and glory.

    5. When the respective sports have developed to a size that can self support themselves (big fan base, TV coverage, commercial sponsorships, etc) like basketball, golf, tennis, etc in the West, then it is perhaps time for individual athletes to go independent. Professionals play for prize money and sponsorships in order to be able to produce their best efforts.

    6. For LCW to go independent is not a problem as he is WR1 and sponsorships are readily available. He is in the money for most SS tourneys, especially if prize moneys are increased. Therefore he can employ his own coach, pay for related training and competition expenses. But he is the exception rather than the rule. Most of his teammates still require government and commercial support to survive.

    Of course misbun is the last one that brought lcw up to where he is today.

    But we shouldn't forget the others as what George mentioned,

    Lcw's father and childhood coach teh peng huat.

    Not forgetting morten frost and li mao ... :eek:

    Bam committee I suppose also has some contribution :D

    Paper work, planning, meetings with lots of discussions,

    Brain storming, chit chat, coffee breaks ..... :D

    Had LM not been "forced" to leave prematurely, he would certainly be credited with the achievements that LCW has attained thus far. Who knows if he had remained LCW might be able to beat LD more consistently...:confused::D:D

    Now we will see how LM can nurture Simon Santoso to greater heights ...maybe by beating LD in SS tourneys and then ...London Olympics. :)
