I just wonder what other "assistance" that he has missed out that are available to those players under BAM who are participating in the same WC in MAS' name.
Like Peter Gade, WCH is 34 years old.

NCC has to be careful in spending Maybank $$$, therefore cannot pay for WCH who is after all just a player, no big deal...BAM has to take care of Bata James first, he is a Datuk after all and who knows what other non-players are coming to London to take on the show, courtesy of Maybank and MAS tax-payers. MAS Boleh!!

Independent players like WCH struggles without much support from Big privateers like KLRC. He have to
book his own air-ticket, find his own hotel, taking own cab to venue. Basically he does everything himself.

BAM get informed by BWF (for each tournament) the players who have qualified to play.
BAM should ask WCH if he needs BAM to book air-ticket and hotel accommodation for him. Then, all MAS players can be together (playing, staying, eating, etc...... together).
Even if BAM do not want to pay for WCH's expenses, BAM can ask WCH to pay back later.
The main thing is all MAS players are together.

I suppose independent players chose to stay away from BAM in order not to be subjected to their terms and conditions. They "free" themselves and enjoy their independence that are not available to BAM players. For this I suppose independent players have to pay a price.
IPs should therefore make their own arrangements. Afterall, if they perform well in competitions they get a lion's share of the winnings. Maybe badminton-loving clubs like KLRC can help as well as to sponsor their trips.

If that is so, then BAM is only interested in BAM players, and we can say that they are an association not for the 'Badminton Interest' of Malaysia.
If I were BAM, I would be pleased to include WCH in the MAS team's air-ticket and hotel accommodation arrangement, especially when I know that WCH will participate in BAM team events (Thomas/Sudirman Cups) when asked to.
But I shall send him the bills since he is an independent player.

Afterall, BAM has its hands full and has been under much criticism on the relatively poor performance of the players under its charge. To extend assistance to IPs may not go down too well with BAM players and this may also give a wrong signal to them that they can also go independent and still obtain assistance from BAM.
The WC is very much an individual tournament and that gives a chance for IPs to show their abilities.
If it were a team event like the Thomas/Uber and Sudirman Cups, and the IPs are selected to represent the country, then I agree that BAM must treat them "pari passu" with BAM players.
As I have said, for individual events when IPs can win prize moneys for themselves, they should seek the sponsorship of badminton-loving fans and clubs, like the KLRC. KLRC may also be able to assist in arranging for flights, food, accommodation, etc since they are equipped with full-time staff who can readily give a helping hand. Then IPs can free themselves of such administrative duties and concentrate on preparing for their tournaments.

I am only saying that BAM should stop bickering and move forward.
