Malaysian Players Are Ranked World No.1!
Hi Fellow Baddies
I have trolled some of the topics in here, its sad to see some derogatory comments being made about some of our players and coaches. I'm not here to be judgemental, I do respect each individual's right to opinion and would like to share some of mine, I hope you can respect mine too.
1. LCW had a fever, its not an excuse. Yet he still took to the courts and played. We all saw he played his heart out and to many of us he is still a winner despite not getting Gold. Also Lin Dan being selective of tournaments was in amazing top form!
Accoladed no.1 ranking is one thing but maintaining it is one heck of an achievement. DLCW has maintained it for about 2 years? His consistency is really something we all are surely proud of but some comments makes it seem otherwise.
2. Our doubles players are also ranked World No.1! What more can one ask for, appreciate what is before our eyes before its past. When complaints are abound its demoralising to players, despite their achievement some members of the public berate them for poor performance. Be human, these guys are not mechanical. Sometimes failure is not just an option, its a necessity.
3. Face it, planning is beyond our control, there is no point demanding for resignations bla bla bla when the true problem lies in the politics of the game. When we give non constructive criticisms we are no different than the other politicians. Propose solutions if you can but empty barking is pointless but that is our nature I guess, it wont stop. Sack the bus driver but then who is going to drive the bus if he is sacked?
4. Following which...some will see this as my bit of empty barking : Politicians should stop their involvement in the game and leave it to managers. They are the first to the front line to claim the winning glory but when its a bad day "we will have an internal inquiry". Investigate what? Are they saying they had no idea whats happening in the first place such that they have to roll some heads? So which is it? International coaches come and go because of this politics. Badminton is becoming like football.
My 2 cents for our players, you play because you enjoy the game and have mastered it. Tournaments are there to pit you against the best in the world. Consequently you play for national pride but don't lose sight of your passion for the game or it will stop being enjoyable. When it stops being enjoyable, you stop winning.
Malaysian players are World Number 1, isn't it fabulous!!
No flaming please, I'm just passing through.

I'm sick of people lamenting about LCW as well...
He has done a heck of a good job mantaining world number 1 status!!

Indeed you have some valid points there but then its winning multiple major titles that will make a great player greater and remembered since he can produce his best when the time comes. Similarly like Lee Westwood can become PGA World number one now but, it is Tiger Woods who will be cherish more as he won more majors which just few human beings can beat him. It's not to say that Datuk LCW is not a great player otherwise he would not become the first Malaysia badminton player that holds the longest World no. 1 title more than Rashid and Roslin did but its more glorious and better if he can win the 2011 WC and 2012 Olympics before he retired.....and also the 2014 AG if i'm not asking too much.

Yup. Cherish it when it is still fresh. Not easy for lcw to match ld in terms of the big title.
I believe he must have worked pretty hard having to wake up early in the morning to train. Same goes to the coach. I wonder if other juniors or countries does the same?
He deserves the mulla reward. Lets hope he can get some of the big ones. Nothing to loose. Only LD is in his way.

Some people just like to complaint too much when things don't go their way...
Thank you for your great support and kind intention. I hope it will reach the heart of those pessimist M'sian, though I doubt they would stop arguing about our best players & coaches. These kind of negative claims and talks always reminded me of the power of netizen in some countries... they decide the life and death of a public figure... I never want to see these harsh words to LCW drive him to his limit... they need to understand he also wants those major titles but to not get them is already a discouragement & a disappointment one has to endure... why must we add to the pain? I often ask myself... but we can't control others mind and words... I wish they would all experience the frustration of being LCW (not literally), for not getting things they worked hard for and get heavily criticized for it day in and day out.
To me, MAS No.1 players are not lacking in any way... So players, please keep the momentum on high level, learn from your failures to be a better player and move forward for greater results. And yes, please don't lose your passion in the game... it is indeed important for you to feel good about what you are doing, for then you will produce good results
p/s: shooting stroke, perhaps you could help convey our warm support to the players via HH... Thank you!

Not sure I agree with you about your Tiger Woods analogy though, I suspect he may remembered more for his extra marital exploits rather than just being the best golfer ever so far. :d

Win or lose is not as important as in participating in sports
It's quite shocking to read some of the many negative comments made by BCers about MAS players. Most of these comments come from Malaysian BCers themselves.
Watching from Australia, I do see many Malaysian supporters turning up to cheer for their players/team. They waved the Malaysian flag. They cheered 'Malaysia Boleh !!!'. There is much support because Badminton is popular in Malaysia.
However, some Malaysian BCers are not satisfied when their players couldn't win the major events. And this causes them to make negative comments.
In Australia, we love sports. Australians are proud of our sports participants, Win or lose is not as important as in participating in sports.
Perhaps for Malaysians, winning is more important. Therefore, we get to find a few bitching about their players whenever they find tournaments/championships are not won by their Malaysian players.

I guess winning is more important to the Malaysian who doesn't know better...

My opinion: Winning in sports is not as important as in participating in sports

I guess this thread will be another ''Singapore Also Can's''.
Ok. Bravo BAM for having players that are WR No.1. Continue with the current squad and management. For sure, more achievements will come.
So good luck to Malaysia Badminton Sports.
