well sir.u might not want to compare a country with a football club.Mine was literal.all a man u do is take care of sir alex,rooney,nike etc etc. Compare with malaysia. If u are thinking that all rm756 billion gained by Petronas since '74 have to be spend on badminton players,u gotta be kidding me. I dont really know why the space programme was really a problem. last one we have with Sh.muzaphar is good to educate malaysians to actually have a different view on science. The live broadcast from iss-almost all children watched it.why they cannot do that when teachers are teaching at the lab?sh muzaphar manage to have those kids to listen.if u want to ask what that programme gave us,it is educations for next generation.Korean did the same.Why they dont complaint?We use korea as comparism when talking about the difference of our gpd. Before i go babbling around,better i get u my point.Dont have to spoil players with money.thats how we lost the 'touch' of thomas cup winners.
