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?

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.

While it is no surprise Wang and Feng have yet to be fully integrated into Singapore society, Li has been here for over a decade, a citizen for nine years, and it cannot be right that she canít even keep up a conversation in English.
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.
