They question more on LCW cos a) he participate more than KKK/TBH (remember Rexy did not send doubles to Korea SS & China Masters) b) with KKK/TBH's inconsistency, LCW's the main hope for major titles.
Misbun replied this before, that we cannot follow like China or LD, somewhere along the lines of competing to maintain fitness/competitiveness.
So, with that directive from higher ups, BAM have made changes.

NSC, Sports Minister & politicians ...
I rest my case then when it comes to us having the wrong people helming BAM. Instead of having administrators and qualified coaches who act in the best interest of the sport, we actually got a bunch of yes men who cater to the whim and fancy of politicians who know jack about the sport.
Hopefully Samy Vellu makes a comeback into the cabinet, being the MIC all time badminton champion, I am sure he got a few good tips for LCW.

After the 2009 French Open SS Finals
Found this post in our 2009 French Open SS Finals thread.
It's interesting (from now onwards)...
It's good to watch Lin Dan participating more often in tournaments.

We can only follow BWF's arithmetic
Correct. We can only follow BWF's arithmetic.
Otherwise, anyone who is not participating in BWF's tournaments can claim to be the "World's Best Player".
It's heard that there are better players than Lin Dan, but not able to participate in the CHN National team. Perhaps, it's just a rumor/nonsense.

Hi all, a question for you to ponder, does really chasing figure so impt or to be able to sustain long enough in the competition and win/defend major titles more impt?

Is chasing ranking points so important?
In competition/tournament, Badminton is organised like other sports. Let's look at some of whom who are involved;
For players, the winning of major titles is important. These titles reflect their authority/excellence.
For fans, the appearance of their idols in tournaments is important. Fans just love to watch their idols play. It doesn't matter if the tournaments are major or not.
For tournament organisers, their tournaments are usually annual events (major or not). If there are more skilled players participating, bigger attendances can be drawn.
Ranking points are awarded to participating tournament players. BWF's ranking points system is similar to those of other sports. Non-participating players (injured, resting, or absent for any other reasons) will miss out on ranking points.
Question: Is chasing ranking points so important?
Answer: Think how we like. It's just part of how our World Sporting Bodies rank their players.
