    I think our different viewpoint is bcoz you see LCW as a professional badminton player whilst I see him as a MALAYSIAN player, representing MALAYSIA FIRST & LAST .... winning the MAJORS MATTER TO MALAYSIA irrespective of who did it !

    I am a Malaysian fan and if any player representing Malaysia falls short of the mark, be prepared for some ' tough love' :D

    winning the MAJORS MATTER TO MALAYSIA irrespective of who did it -- Still you are missing something. Other than Lee Chong Wei, who else did it to malaysia as if you are mentioning..? :rolleyes:Any other men's singles player did it before? ;)If you do your so called tough love to a player who is the only one who can challenge the top seeds of other dominant nation, then i leave it to you for your imagination. I am not a malaysian and if you have your own boundaries to explain your views and not trying to come out of it, i cant do anything.. :)

    I don't disagree with you one bit about LCW being the only real challenger today that is why many Malaysian fans are condemning BAM for doing such a crap job in PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE ....

    Like LD, LCW is fast coming towards his expiry date (max 3-4 years) as a top 10 player, time to move on .... newer, hungrier and younger China dragons are emerging, time for Malaysia to FOCUS ON THE NEXT GENERATION.

    As far as I can see, LCW 's BAD LUCK is that he is born around the same time as LD - too bad !! Same goes for all the great players born in the same time as Rudy Hartono, who remembers them today ? When people refer back to the 60s and 70s ... ONLY ONE NAME ... same, next time, people refers to the 2004-2012 era .... ONLY ONE NAME .... the one who win THE MAJORS ...

    So, if LCW wants to be mentioned together, he better starts banging in a few MAJORS in the next 3-4 years and forget about wasting his energies and risk injuries on the so-so PSS/SS ....

    There is an interesting article in malay mail. :) Here is the link

    http://www.mmail.com.my/story/no-easy-passage-chong-wei-despite-lin-dans-absence-40164

    EXCERPTS:

    "The Malaysian ace who recently wed his long time girlfriend and shuttler Wong Mew Choo recently, will have to overcome his nemesis Chen Long, the world number three, in the absence of his arch-rival Lin Dan."

    "Though the head-to-head record between Chong Wei and Chen Long stands at 7-5 in favour of the Malaysian after 12 meetings, but the latest loss suffered by Chong Wei in the Hong Open Open last month is cause for concern."

    "The BWF Super Series Final, the climax of the 12-leg BWF Super Series circuit, will end the year with the best eight men’s and women’s singles and doubles players, as well as mixed doubles players battling it out for a slice of the USD500,000 (RM1.55 million) prize money."

    I wish him all the very best for this first Superseries finals after his sweet wedding. :)

    Maybe its because it was LD that LCW can be world No. 1...? Its quite a unique relationship. As buddies off court, they compare their GTRs and Ferraris driving experiences. What I still dont understand is why our back-ups dont reap the benefit of having a world no. 1 in their own house? I like to see LCW work ethics should be documented and make it a formula for the budding newbies into BAM?

    To be World Number 1 for as long as he has in spite of the great behemoth that is Chinese badminton is enough reason for me to regard LCW as one of the greatest players ever. It is akin to that lone man standing alone in front of those tanks on Tiananmen Square.

    LCW is a fantastic team player (be it Thomas Cup or Sudirman), as he always want to be the catalyst to give Malaysians the 'boleh' spirit to do the impossible, although most times it is really impossible. Sadly, although he beat LD at past Thomas Cup, Malaysia failed to deliver. But LCW gave his due.

    Having said that, LCW is both a good team player and an individual player. Period.

    really? i still hope they are REAL friends. but maybe only in my dream.

    btw, LD didn't play in CHN masters. he should played in CBSL. but still, he didn't make it to attend LCW's wedding. too bad.

    Sorry, some translation should be in order: Basically, Lee CW is saying he is exhausted and didn't feel like playing in this tournament, what with his marriage preparation and all that. He added the way the SS is organized many players are risking injury, the tournaments are too close, overcrowded. He also complained that, for players who would like to take a break and skip a tournament,the fines that BWF imposes for not turning up is unfair.

    More or less what Li YB has been saying.

    LCW also said he was forced to play in SSF becoz of the USD 5000 fine if absent.... compared health and USD 5000, I don't believe LCW is not able to play... most Malaysians know how rich he is... look at his wedding....

    so why risking his health in the first place because of the USD 5000?!

    I don't think he's telling the truth...
