    All the suggestions is in this thread. Maybe we should send them their next action options since they are too busy to think about this.
    Whoa there, bucko! It's not the right time for this!

    Chances are:
    1. They'll be read (and "actioned") by (possibly) Nadzmi and his chosen ones....
    2. They'll manage to lose the e-mail, fax or paper.
    3. They'll need it translated into at least 10 languages before they will take a proper look at it.
    4. They'll tell you that you don't know what you're talking about.
    5. They'll tell you they've got it covered.
    6. At the next AGM. Promise.

    the only chance is
    break into their game by yourself
    but never forget ur initial intention.

    there arent many people with heart up there.
    there arent many people with brain up there.

The constant retirements of players do not augur well for the game. There is talk that badminton may not make it as a sport in the 2020 Olympics. We must bear in mind that other sports are strongly lobbying to be included. “I have just started my own centre. It caters for eight or nine-year-olds. Now, I am not sure whether they will get a chance to play in the Olympics,” added Taufik. What irked Taufik most was that the withdrawals and retirements still occurred despite the Badminton World Federation (BWF) taking a strong stance, especially during last year’s London Olympic Games. Four women’s doubles pairs were banned for “not using one’s best efforts to win a match”. The BWF also warned their affiliates over the constant walkovers on the tour.
    Taufik is very good in commenting other players, especially from china. But now, in just 24 hours after his statement, he withdraw from malaysia open. lol.

    The critics here would always find a way to fault the Chinese, who're typically in no-win situation. Their comments could be -

    1. Look even our Taufik is infected by the Chinese bug. BWF gets to do something about it quickly, or
    badminton's future will be completely ruined.
    2. Taufik must have learned it from the Chinese. Since so many of them are doing it, it is only fair that
    Taufik and LCW would do it.
    3. There are all kinds of conspiracy theories about what the Chinese are up to. Taufik pulls his own
    withdrawal to protest against Chinese withdrawals, to show them just how ridiculous it must look
    when he pulls out of a major tournament for no apparent reason.
    4. I'm a woman, so I can change my mind/view about anything at any time.

    And the list goes on and on.

    Your right it is just one big coincidence/misunderstanding with China. I must also add how enjoyable it is to follow/"watch" all these tournaments with all the withdrawals constantly. Fantastic for badminton, fantastic for fans. So happy for the sport......

    What then are your theories why the Chinese didn't withdraw every player from the tournament?

    I could guess but what's the point. It ain't a coincidence I can tell you that for free. They playing games for some greater plan. Except they forgot one thing, it just makes them look like a bunch of chumps. Imagine the respect China would get if they were just straight shooters and got on board. Their missing a trick, they just have not got it quite right.

    From the video, he didn't highlight that he was injured. He just kicked his leg and his movement was slow.

    Really, it's about the stupid rule of fining when not showing up. Same thing as the Olympics. Blame the BWF rule-makers, and nothing else.
