no money in badminton maybe the reason
By Claire Barthelemy
(CNN) -- A new international poll has revealed that money is the main source of stress in most countries --- but men and women often don't worry about the same things.
A poll finds that money is the number one reason for stress in most countries -- no matter which currency.
The survey, which was conducted by Reader's Digest, asked people from 16 countries one simple question: What stresses you the most?
A total of 150 participants from each country chose between money, family, health and state of the world. The result shows that most participants consider money to be the number one reason for stress.
The recession has not only left its mark in our bank accounts, but also in our minds.
Malaysia leads the list with 58 percent of participants stating money to be their biggest concern, followed by China and Singapore with both 55 percent. Third one in the list is the United States with 48 percent of participants blaming the dollar for their stress.

The system is wrong
I was not around in the 60s and 70s, but I heard from my parents, uncles etc etc that our football team comprised of various races then and we were feared in Asia. Now our football is mainly 99% malays, the balance 1% will be 1-2 indian chaps sitting on the bench. I find it hard to believe that the chinese cant play football likewise for those East Malaysians. Just like badminton something is wrong, right?
Sports should not be about colour.

If at first you don't succeed; try, try and try again
It's always easy to criticize. It's not easy to know which is the best way to go. IMHO, the warning from BAM given to HH and KBH has done little good for the MAS team overall.
It goes back to the well-known saying - "If at first you don't succeed; try, try and try again".

^^Should BAM make another warning??..^^
..i think they should..

After so many chances to try, I guess it is time to move on and let's other brave souls have their turn....if they are lucky and succeed, then another LD or LDCW is born, if not be prepared to be abused, hecked, stoned, crucified, bashed in BC Forum...hahaha!!

Just like our football, our national team can try, try and try again ... do you seriously think we can meet the standards of Japan/Korea let alone beat Thailand & Vietnam or Indonesia in the Asean region? As long as the administration is wishy washy (like BAM), we can try, try and try again till every single cow is home ... we are still going to find ourselves heading nowhere.
Back to HH & KBH, honestly I think BAM made a big mistake in serving them a warning. Yes, the warning have done little to both of them and the MAS badminton team. In the first place, both of them should have been dropped ages ago. They are simply not good enough. You cant just take a Proton Saga to compete in the international circuit.
China, Denmark, S Korea & Indonesia ... they are all badminton contenders. If HH/KBH are shuttlers from these nations, do you think they will be dropped ages ago? I would say yes.
I believe the TC is next year, in KL. And if we have HH/KBH in our squad it just shows that we have not made any progress. We are seriously handicapped when it comes to competing against the big boys. Our management in BAM is at best poor, our juniors are substandard in quality and we have some serious deadwoods coupled with some big time Charlies and one mentally weak WR#1 shuttler in our senior squad.
.... but we can try, try, try and try some more while the big boys win all the trophies.
