Let's take your unceasing criticism of LCW and Misbun.It's a breakthrough achievement on the part of LCW to win an OG silver. Public recognition of that feat,and the incredible talent, effort and sacrifice that must have been put through by LCW and Misbun,is expected,decent and justified. The fact that LCW lost badly to LD does not negate his greatest reach to date.Do not confuse that with the MSF disappointment felt by fans.(And 'Datuk' is such a common title nowadays.)
Actually, what LCW got is less that what Spore's table tennis women's team got.As you may be aware, Spore also won a breakthrough silver(after 48? years!) Our TT women achieve celebrity status, more money than LCW and will also be awarded the "Datuk' equivalent for the glory they brought to Spore.And in Spore, we appreciate their gutsy feat even though they can't even speak a word of the national language.(Your LCW is amazingly trilingual)
Your lack of appreciation of what LCW and Misbun has brought to your country appals me.If you had gone through 10% of their tough journey, you would probably be in awe of them.I don't know much of you but your comments betray a person who probably has achieved very little in life to date yet has such arrogance you cannot appreciate greatness.

When Singapore won that silver medal (By FT from China), it's up to the Singapore Authority to recognise and show the appreciation on the hard-working of those FT that bring and give a chance for the singapore's flag rise and Singapore National Anthem to be played in Beijing Olympic Stadium. It is a great honour for Singapore and her country people for the achievement. I dont even bother abt it.It is none of my business simply because i am not Singaporean.
But when you talking abt mas, i am very concern abt it coz i am malaysian.
You claim that Datuk-ship is easy to get nowadays in malaysia. If it is like that, go and get one for yourself.
When i saying that LCW is not worth being conferred Datuk-ship, it doesnt mean that i am not appreciate what he have done for mas badminton sport and for our country. It's the matter of suitable or not.
When you are silver medalist, means that you are in 2nd place. In that final match, you are a looser. If it is like that, what to celebrate? for being a looser?
If silver medalist can get Datuk-ship, what abt being Cahmpion? Mohd. Hafiz Hashim won the ALL ENGLAND CHAMPIONSHIP in year 2003. Why he didnt get his Datuk-ship? Koo Kien Keat/ Tan Boon Heong did superbly in the year 2007. Why they are not given the title of Datuk? Yap Kim Hock/ Cheah Soon Kit also won that Silver Medalist. And Cheah Soon kit also a key player in the Thomas Cup 1992 Edition. Cheah is more suitable candidates to be given Datuk-ship than 'Datuk' LCW, if we are looking at the glory and achievements by the respective players as mention.
Please go to the library to find the old newspaper, select the old newspaper and start read from 09 March 2008 UNTIL 27 August 2008 and you will not why i am saying that LCW Datukship is a joke.

That's why Mr. Robert Kuok (A chinese entrepreneur) denied to be conferred the Datuk title.

Not fair to compare it to Datuk Michelle Yeoh. 1. No political overtones. 2. She became a superstar worldwide, acting in many many many sucessful roles. 3. Datuk Yeoh's career is effectively over, if it is not, she is only taking roles spardically.
No one denies LCW's skill. Obviously, being the world number1 and reaching the finals of he Olympics is no mean feat. No one is taking anything away from his win. But his datukship is not justified. Datukships should not be awarded as spoils of war, more so if the award was made for obvious political reasons.
I don't get your point on the Cheah Soon Kit/Yap Kim Hock. So just because they were a doubles pair they cannot get datukship? What kind of bullsh*t is that? Doubles players don't work as hard as singles? Doubles badminton is inferior to singles badminton? A singles silver medal is not equal to a doubles silver medal?
You then talk about splitting the Datuk three ways instead of two ways. That got me cracking. Friend, do you know how many hundred Datuk titles are awarded every year? Whats wrong with giving one more Datuk?
Call Lee Datuk all you want, in my mind he is not a Datuk. I will not call him that.
But in the end, it all comes down to... I consider Datukships as worthless. I give little or no weight to Datukships. My grandfather is my Datuk. My grandmother is my Datin. My family are my Tan Sris and Tuns. The other so called Datuk, Tan Sris, Tuns, I consider with a pinch of salt, knowing how easy buying a title in Malaysia is.
Oh, and I think my brother is a bigger Datuk Wira than a certain Malaccan ex MB.

Datuk Yes...But later
Chong Wei deserves to be recognised but not a Datukship at this age. A better way to reward young sportmen/sportwomen Datukship is to wait till he/she is older, perhaps when these sport personalities reach the age of 40 and above. Even Chong Wei finds it hard to respond to people calling him Datuk and humbly requested to be Chong Wei.
