Since you are on my favourite sport and something which I had some asssociation with some years back i.e. FAM, let me tell you football in Malaysia is beyond dire straits. Dont believe me, go watch a game this Sat. You will find just a handful of fans in a stadium built for 50,000. It is even worse if you venture to Shah Alam stadium and watch Selangor. You will find at most 2,000 fans in a stadium meant to accomodate 80,000!! And half of those fans are on free passes!
Why is our football in the shitter for over 25 years?? It is because from top (management) to the players, we are ignoring the basics of the game. We have idiots and opportunists who have made FAM their own playground. Instead of putting the cash from sponsors back into the game, they are lining their own pockets. Thus till today, we still have some teams not able to pay their players' salaries on time or at all. These people are parasites and they are bleeding the game dry. And a culture of nepotism and favoritism are ingrained into our game. And it is no wonder we are churning out half cooked players who are found out big time in any international tournaments, the recent ones being the Asia Cup 2007. We are no longer selecting players based on merit.
This is what Malaysia Boleh is about.

i agree with what you said on football and the bad management pemuda. frankly everybody can see that. do we have bad parasites infesting our sports? yes, i believe we do. and i hate it that we are not selecting players based on merit and not unearthing and nurturing enough talents that could raise our sports standing in the world. but being supportive of the players that are capable of winning is about what a fan is to the player/team that he supports. i believe you could understand that. liverpool have not been winning EPL lately, but nobody have ever said liverpool will never win it again. because they have the players that could win it. even amidst the politics and american intervention, no liverpool fans will stop supporting liverpool right? so it is with supporting malaysian team. the players will come and go but we keep supporting the team. more so when we have players capable of winning and challenging the top players even if they are inconsistent. as with any team, you win some, you lose some. i know it is easy to feel frustrated at the sheer stupidity of how they are running our sports body but if we dont support our home team, who will? i never denied china players are very very good. indonesian and korean players too. but supporting malaysian team is what i do. and some others would like to support them too.

If Rexy decide not to let KKK/TBH go, then might be a very good news for the others pairs including MK/HS......

Sorry I just cannot simply support our sportsmen/women who dont pull their weight just because they are Malaysians. To me, I feel when one put on our national colours it is no laughing matter.
When I was playing football some years back (and I must admit I am no Maradona etc), I always admire the Korean players. Even in junior level tournaments, they will take to the field and play as if their lives depends on it. They will fight and chase for every single ball. As for us, I must admit it sickens me to see my fellow teamates more interested in sending SMSes to their girlfriends, shopping (if we are playing abroad) etc. We are always trounced by the Koreans. Thats the difference when it comes to mentalities.

Focus Is Key
Why is one more successful than the other?
The Korean appears to be very mature in his approach to competition.
Absolutely cemented commitment, sharp focus and fluid court craft.
There's very little or no strutting about, either on court or off it...
...and (as jamesd20 pointed out in his ringside review of the All England SF between LYD-JJS and CTF-LWW), he is capable of blanking out everything but the purpose at hand.
In general, the other Korean players are similar to LYD in their approach.
No crowing, no sledging, no grandstanding...
...indeed, they display a remarkable indifference to crowd reaction.
Not surprisingly, Koo Kien Keat would certainly be rated as the better player.
His skills are awesome, to say the least, and his court craft is superb.
In the looks department, both KKK and LYD are probably on an even keel.
Neither of them seems to have any lack of hordes of screaming fans
(My niece, though, thinks Lee Jae Jin is the cutest guy she's ever seen!)
Both KKK and LYD have great coaches - both champions of yesteryear.
I'd even go further and say that KKK has the better coach.
Given that he has the edge where it matters (on-court skills) and also where it doesn't matter (off-court shenanigans), why is Koo Kien Keat's star fading while Lee Yong Dae's star is rising?
Perhaps, as Pemuda says, it's all about mentalities.
03-21-2008, 06:32 PM #302
..LYD has to play in 2 events, thus requiring more mental and physical readiness. Hmm, perhaps KKK needs more challenges and should go back to playing XD again?? Or perhaps play MS as well...

Show diplomacy in ur words.
U have never asked why the 'typical malaysia boleh believers' pointed fingers at u whenever u do ur writings.
About the attitude.The western is worse.If u want to compare the mentality.
(my man u players facing legal charge due to an incident in a wild party)
For malaysians players,our worst incident must be close proximity case involved khalid jamlus last year.
But the difference is they know how to acted nice in court or training session.
U nak call g/f up to u la.I think other players in other countries did that too.
C'mon.Are u trying to denying that?
But know where n when.
Changing the mentality is not easy.It takes years.
I wont be hoping a drastic decison like what tg.Abdullah have done in early '90s.It wont work.
I do hope theres a concrete plan that will walk out the outcomes of the talk.
And this included ur talks,Pemuda.
I was not able to complaint because i cannot figure out any suggestions.
Sick to see jaguh kampung like kedah kena belasah 5-0 from a neighbourhood team.Thats our standard.What to do?
Change is good.Well done Pemuda.
