Frankly speaking, Badminton is still an Asia sport though Denmark and other EU countries are catching up. Until one day Li Ning/YY can match what NIKE/Adidas/PUMA/etc are paying in millions n millions of dollars for each endorsement, I'm quite skeptical about the badminton players going pro. Who will fund their expenses? Again, the funding is for the whole team that consists of coaches, medical staffs, admin staff, PR/agent, accommodation, travelling, etc... Who will bear these costs?
Professional golf, basketball, tennis, boxing, etc... are earning many times of what LCW is capable of.

Now, which European country you have in mind that is catching up? For YY/LN to match others in paying out mega endorsement deal to baddy players to go independent pro (no more handouts), they have to sell lots of pricy rackets, wear, shoes, etc. Are CHN, INA, MAS public gonna pay those prices, forget it....knock-offs will take over. As for pro golf, basketball, tennis, boxing, the $$$ come from one main source....TV. In fact, before NBA even starts to sell one single ticket, the clubs receive enough $$$ from TV to cover their expense. Baddy, on the other hand, needs to go back to tax-payers for generous donation to survive

The $$$ come from one main source....TV
You are right that the $$$ come from one main source....TV. But don't give up; that Badminton cannot get $$$ from TV (that was yesteryears).
Now, almost every household in China has at least one TV. We can see why the Chinese Badminton Super League (CBSL) was organised. And players are been paid by per match they participate in.
I believe that much money come from Guangdong TV. No wonder players can earn pretty good money when they participate in this CBSL event.

His charges/trainees are best to tell us if Misbun is a good or lowsy coach
That post said;
Who are the people best to tell us if Misbun is a good or lowsy coach?
2. Other coaches?
3. Misbun's charges/trainees?
3. Reporters from the press?
4. Malaysian Badminton supporters/fans?
5. Our BadmintonCentral members?
I would think No.3 (Misbun's charges/trainees) should be the answer.

A good coach would not be entrusted with Elite players.
A good coach would not be asked to serve at the highest level of coaching in on of the greatest badminton playing nations in the world, for such a long time.
A good coach would not generate complete trust and loyalty from his charges.
Therefore, to my mind the verdict is:
Misbun is a great coach.

This is the practice in industry called PEER EVALUATION .This means being judged by people who are equal in terms of knowledge and what needs to be done.
From personal experience trainers /teachers can be well liked by their charges if they are say lenient and easy going and
accomodating, but this is tantamount to spoiling them and the results will not show.Those who are strict and go by best
practice without fear or favour may not be well liked or praised by their charges but everyone will benefit in the end.
To be judged good by the people in your charge iunder your influence or power is more like manipulating peoples'
minds by politicians and marketeers.
The TTC is an eg. of peer evaluation by equals, although it may not be perfect.Look up Wiki on this concept,
it is now a very popular method.
This is answering your question on the 5 choices,probably there will be other choices based on the person's background.

more famous than his charges), let me repeat a story which i revealed here in 2003:
Darren Hall was England's no.1 in the 80s and won many world class tournaments.He applied to join BE to be a coach.
The BE told him to take a coaching course first before applying, Darren argued that he had ample credentials as he had years
of playing experience and success as a player and had made tremendous sacrifices. He was turned down.
He gave up and decided to take up a job as a London cab driver. to his dismay to qualify as a cab-driver he had to take a lot
of tests and earn a certificate.But he had no choice, so he took the tests, passed and is a London cab-driver today.
BAM may not be like that but local industries and those in advanced countries are very adamant about paper qualifications
and accreditation before they put people in positions of responsibility. Gone are the days when you could get a good job
based on experience like a blue-collar worker.Everyone is expected to have skills as well as thinking ability. Thinking ability
allows you to think of others ,understand others , think out of the box, and accept and develop new ideas.
Societies nowadays emphasise on education and acquiring credentials and qualifications, you will have a hard time convincing
people nowadays as desired are people with lifelong learning abilities. Now you can see why Msia places such a high emphasis
on education and makes it available for everyone (like in advanced countries).

IMO, no one method is perfect; they all involve a certain amount of subjectivity. Even Peer Evaluation though it is a very acceptable form, is subject to jealousy, differences in background and methodology, etc etc.
Even statistical analysis will not be able to do justice to certain unquantifiable contributions that any person has made to his position of responsibility. Then there is the knock-on effect...
I think the bottom line I am searching for is:
Not just Malaysia, but Badminton itself will be poorer off for the loss of Misbun.

That is why respect, openness an maturity comes into play.
Some people learn, read or get counselling in different ways. Will the differences be big if they get those papers?
I doubt so. It is just a foundation. It still boils down to your conviction and passion.

2) Misbun is a person who practices nepotism
"-> I humbly disagree. He just has a different perspective on how things can be done.
A man does not put his career, reputation and bread and butter on the line just to give his own son an advantage. What more under the spotlight of the public and press.
Businessmen and DATUKs have much more of this luxury."
This is the concept of Transparency and Good Corporate Governance.
Years ago a finance minister interviewed was asked why he gave all MOF licences to himself and members of his family.
His answer was similar to yours, and he retorted" if you had business licences to give out who would you give to.people you dont know, what's wrong with giving it to myself and my family? Of course this minister is a very richman.
Nowadays we have scarce resources and demand that more merit be practised and there must be some form of measurement, even if it is not it should at least be subject to PEER EVALUATION.
If not this world would even be a more corrupt culture than it is now. When faced with a dilemma on preference of own kin,
people often lean over backwards to avoid being accused of nepotism and often dissociate themselves and allow others to make the choice.
As to reputation, some of his spokesmen have already stated clearly that he has done a lot for the country (more than Hall for England presumably) and deserves special treatment.
It is precisely this sort of attitude that led to the PKFTZ fiasco.

Corporate decisions made by Board of Directors, Committees,committees, committees, a real pain, slow,
full of yesmen etc. but it is a recognised form by people in power and we have to learn to live with them.
Parliament is also a committee, to be effective, members should be voted in, not appointed.Would you prefer
an autocracy or dictatorship or rule by Emperor?

Dont you think that BE was very heartless,ungrateful and cruel to Hall?
But that's the way things work in other countries,little room for sentiment.
But it does bring out the best in people .
The minor changes in BAM is ,I repeat,is :
A response to losing to Japan in the Thomas Cup. Japan without much talent or outstanding players
could beat Malaysia as a team. Malaysia was too dependent on 1,2 players.Now the TCC wants a bigger pool of players (in all disciplines,not just singles) and not just 1,2 world beaters. How this can be done baffles me, even if it can be done it will be dead slow. Perhaps they can wait 4 years while slowly re-building the team. They do not seem to prioritise creating another LCW in their intentions in their press statements.
Perhaps they know something about Japan and Park Joo Bong?

What will happen if people make their own rules as in KL, parking their cars where they like, double parking,
breaking speed limits,jumping red lights, tail-gating etc without consideration for others , then the place will not be a safe place to live.
Rules need to be enforced , it is better than none, rules of course can always be improved if the result is a good intention and adds value.This is the concept of COMPLIANCE in the workplace and society.
