    I have nothing to say, prehaps the resignation of Tony, Flandi, Eng, Yuli, Ellen, Indarti etc wasn't only due to their "studies"....... Maybe this is why Flandi/Eng ended up in England......

    Taufik should play for another country.
    Malaysia has said that they are more than happy to accept Taufik in their squad.
    In addition to earning more income, he will have more opportunity to play in EVERY tournament !!!

    If he wants to play in every tournament and get more income, Singapore is the place to go. Singapore buys all their talent and 90% of their goods are imported. So what difference is this going to make? Just add Taufik to Indra and Ronald....... Then all we need is 2 decent doubles pairs and the Thomas Cup could be ours.....

    But honestly, its stupid that Taufik is quitting, hes wasting his talent in my opinion. If the PBSI is really the reason for all the players quitting, someone should do something about it. The 1st shock was Flandi/Eng then Tony Gunawan, now Taufik......

    what the hell!?!

    The New scoring system may be the culprit !!!

    I think not.
    Looking at results, Taufik won the Singapore open under the new scoring 5x7
    but lost at the ABC 3x15....
    What a waste of talent and a big loss to the badminton world.
    He's about the best there is in the world right now...
    Let's hope he reconsiders or at least carries on playing on his own just like the break away Nusa Mahsuri of Malaysia

    Something very fishy is going on at the PBSI.
    Why suddenly this year have we seen a spate of resignations?
    Taufik was the only one to speak out, the others have been more diplomatic.

    With PBSI in such disarray, the Thomas Cup must soon return to China!

    I don't think he's the best now. Xia SZ is the best. Taufik HAD the potential to be the best, but he does not have the humility and temperament to be No.1 Pity, but many young people just cannot be great because of some fatal character flaw. He is a very strong headed youngster, but in a couple of years he will find he is no longer the prodigy everyone was crowing over - he will just be another good player who's not lived up to expectations. Sun Jun also had this streak of self-destruct but fortunately for him he self-destruct AFTER getting the big things. Taufik has nothing yet, by comparison, so why is having such a big head? John.

    The money is the problem as why so many Indonesian players quit

    What a terrible shame and waste but only he truly knows what is really going on behind the scenes, short term and long term, so we shouldn't be too critical. Obviously fans are dissapointed but if players like Tony Gunawan are quitting whilst being Olympic champion and No. 1 in the world then i think like most of you have said that there is definitely something very fishy going on within the PBSI. Maybe its a deliberate ploy for Rexy to send over some English players for some real coaching, i dont know.

    John does have a point about Taufik and his temperament but i think in all fairness at his tender age with all that money and fame and women (i think) the last thing he needed was the one person that he confided in to be sacked aswell. i.e his coach. I personally wish him all the best for the future and if he does get offered to play for England his more than welcome, come to think about it we are looking for a player for our second division team.

    Yudhi,
    If you cannot say anything useful, get off the forum. Don't get personal. John

    You can say great things about other players but remember, Taufik is only 20, he would still have another good 5-10 years in the badminton world to prove something great. You can't compare him with other players that have been playing for longer than he has

    I doubt so, i'm quite sure we'll see players like Tony Gunawan and Taufik pop up again soon in the international scene. But in different colours

    I heard that PBSI gets a sizable part of players prize money. Is this true?

    It make sense that the PBSI gets some of the player's earnings from tournaments but prehaps too much is deducted
