Do you mean $100 or $100,000 a year?
Probably even a level D player won't be interested for $100/year.
If it's $100,000/year, probably we can get Taufik or Lin Dan instead of "unused" players.

USD$100K per year for how many years ? I am sure current top players would be interested if the contract is at least five years. The model works like soccer, individual signs contract and play for whoever pays well. At the same time, the player is free to represent his/her own country in major tournaments.
BTW, does badminton have inter-club tournaments ?

The sad reality is, USBA used to (several yrs ago?) only 25k / yr (a HS kid working in Burger King full time might get more than that) for their national team coach, and top US pro like Howard or Kevin have to work in Home Dept to just make a living.

I am sure something like this will happen. That will be sad because wealthy country will dominate and local talents will have less chance to participate.

I'm actually very happy for the likes of Tony Gunawan, Xia, and even Mia Audina. Their badminton talent has allowed them to seek a better life for themselves in another country. AND that's after they've given so much honor for their former home countries in terms of Gold medals in sports.
One of our (Filipino) billiards champions, Alex Pagulayan, is now representing Canada. We're very proud of him even though he now competes against our players. We're also happy for him that he's doing very well personally, and financially.
At the end of the day, it's their God-given right to seek a better life for themselves and their families anywhere they wish. I'm also happy that other countries like the US and Canada welcome Asians (and other foreigners) as their own.
