    The general opinion amongst the ex pats I hang out with in Thailand is that the Thais (a people I like and admire) have their own way of doing things; a way that is mostly incomprehensible to westerners, but works fine.

    And as per usual in Thailand, once anyone from the Royal family steps in, the problem gets solved immediatly.

    Although it seems that the problem has been solved but by actual fact the players still ain't very happy about the outcome.

    They have decided to part from TBA and has all officially moved out of the association hostel. The 12 players will now train on their own outside TBA, but they have yet to find a fixed place to accommodate all of them.

    The players may have parted from TBA but they are still eligible to be elected for Super Series, Asian Games, Olympics etc... But the first problem has just arise and that is TBA did not apply visa for the the top players whom were supposed to be send for All England and Swiss Open, that explains the withdrawal. Although I was told it is also because Boonsak is still injured and has only just started light training. but I see no reason for the rest not to go....

    Default ^^Tough to hear..^^

    *thanks for the updated news..
    ..hopefully, if those top players still insist to go on their own or decide to part ways permanently with the TBA, they'll find a reliable sponsor or two..
    (or maybe they can move to either U.S. or Canada and become coaches!)

    I can see those top players returning to the TBA but imo, it would only be possible with a major house cleaning of all the previous or exisiting TBA officials (is that even possible??)..

    INA fans [for the time being] officially thank Yonex & the TBA officials for successfully spoiling Thailand's chances at winning a spot at the KL Thomas & Uber finals...! Top Thai players have enjoyed the right to have individual sponsors for a long time. Forcing the outdated Yonex-only-strategy-for all members while TBA officials determine who gets how much is unfair and goes against the core principles of a free-market economy. Boonsak and co. are very right.

    PBSI officials should learn from this and watch out... One day the top INA players will demand their true rights.

    "Red shirt" protesters to target Thai military base
    By Chalathip Thirasoontrakul Chalathip Thirasoontrakul
    1 hr 19 mins ago

    .BANGKOK (Reuters) – Thousands of anti-government protesters in Bangkok plan to march to a military base on Monday to step up pressure on Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to dissolve parliament and call fresh elections.

    The red-shirted supporters of former premier Thaksin Shinawatra have given the government an ultimatum: call elections by midday on Monday or face crippling mass demonstrations.

    The protests which began on Friday and involved more than 150,000 people by Sunday have been peaceful, and the "red shirts" say they will remain that way. But Monday's march could stoke anger by paralyzing already-congested streets in Bangkok.

    No, this story ahs been going on for years and the western press make a huge thing of it. There's really nothing much going on more than a french demonstration, we have those every couple of months or so, its no big deal.

    Looks like everything is in a limbo now. Be it politics or sports. Sad case.
