    In the press release, the second-last line makes for very interesting reading

    That's interesting. Then that means Fu Ming tian's niece is applying to schools for entry for next school year.

    "Mr Zheng's joining of the leadership team of SBA will help us achieve our
    objectives. I am confident that Mr Zheng's experience, network, commitment and his good health will help us build a strong team".

    You mean the above?

    Frankly, to me, Mr Zheng has lost his creditability because of his previous conviction. How can one build a strong team when outsiders like foreign officials and coaches, foreign players, etc, have lost their respect for him? I wonder how his present batch of players, his colleagues, his fellow coaches, parents and badminton fans take to his leadership.

    Contrary to what the SBA Management believes, I think they have made a wrong decision and it will take a long time for the morale of the team to heal and soar again. Maybe this is the start of a downward spiral for Singapore badminton unless something could be done quickly.

    Er, I was referring to this line:

    "So far, SBA has received favourable responses and expressions of
    support from the badminton fraternity in Singapore."

    I can't help wondering who the SBA means by 'the badminton fraternity'.
    Does this mean that we are happy to see corruption being endorsed?

    Certainly not from me, if I am considered as part of 'the badminton fraternity'.

    I don't know what sort of signal they're giving to the public and this is very sad.

    Oh no, we wouldn't be able to do such a thing I'm afraid. No takeover bid intended, just an unimportant opinion from another badminton fan.

    Since KLRC has been mentioned in one of the posts, we may find our young talents going there. And mind you, after we have spent so much money, effort and time to develop them!

    Let me guess.SBA's just changed its CEO, sacked an exec hired without knowing he had a conviction and decided to welcome back a former disgraced coach maybe cos he offered a huge discount as SBA seemed like broke.
    SBA even had the cheek to ask RS to stay on even though it's a dead end for him.
    I don't believe anyone should be obligated to stay on even though SBA has 'developed' them for 5 years.What about the opportunity costs of those trained by SBA and going nowhere after 5 years? Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.
    Maybe the President of SBA should set an example and think hard of some deep sacrifice on his part.

    no way dude... there are just too much politics involved in these sports associations... heard from the grapevine that there were quite a number of resignations in SBA...

    I hope those who resigned are the dimwits behind the current fiasco!
    The focus now is on anything but badminton... and that's unfortunate.

    Huh?

    There are thousands of heartlanders who can't speak or understand English.
    Why on earth should that be a demerit???

    What's relevant is whether she can play table-tennis at the highest level.
    It's not about her conversational skills in English or any language, for that matter.

    Such observations don't encourage these players to stay.
    If they feel unwelcome, they will run away.

    Errrrrrrrrr, I thought Singapore emphasise on speaking Mandarin & English? Some of them pride themselves ( not pointing our Spore BCers but other ppl, other ppl , hehe) in being good in English compared to Msians.
    So that kind of comment is not surprising to me.
