BAM CANCELS THOMAS/UBER CUP TEAMS TRAINING IN SABAH DUE TO LOGISTICS PROBLEM
KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 31 (Bernama) -- The Badminton Association of Malaysia
(BAM) today cancelled its plan to send the Thomas and Uber Cup teams for
centralised training in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah due to logistics problems.
BAM secretary Ng Chin Chai said both teams, preparing for the Thomas and
Uber Cup Qualifiers in Macau next month, would train at BAM''s official training
base, Juara Stadium, Bukit Kiara instead.
Chin Chai said the centralised training stint had to be cancelled due to
logistics problem although the initial training plan was recommended by the High
"If we trained in Sabah, players and officials will have to come back to
Kuala Lumpur before heading to Macau because there are no direct flights to
Macau from Sabah.
"BAM has weighed the situation. If we go ahead with the training, players
will have to undergo a hectic schedule and they will not have enough rest," he
told Bernama here today.

...Razif, during an interview with Bernama TV recently, said Zulfadli should have been given a chance to represent the country in the Thomas Cup Qualifier to be held in Macau from Feb 13 to 19.
...“At least he (Zulfadli) will be able to witness in person, how difficult or tough the competition is at the Thomas Cup.
“It does not matter whether he is from the Kuala Lumpur Racquet Club or not, BAM must still open the door to give players like Zulfadli in the near future. We must give opportunities for our best singles players so that they will be able to compete against the best in the world later on,” he said. — Bernama

Those were the days when I was not yet the, ahem, neutral fan I am now ...... wakakakaka.
It was nice, being at the ferocious Stadium Negara doing battle against a strong Indonesian supporter base - all in good spirits, of course.
By the time this match ended, Rashid Sidek almost had to be carried off court by Punch Gunalan, he was so dead tired ....... now that's commitment to win that match at all costs. Good thing too, 'cos Malaysia lost the first doubles match when Jalani Sidek had to take the court with high fever.

I always goto MO during Stadium Negara days. Seeing players sweat like nobody biz.. super humid. I think the atmosphere is nicer there. If they can put aircond, it will be nice.
Actually, msia still can qualify if they play it right. Crazy to admit loss before even playing. Who knows there are injuries in other teams or messed up strategies??
Team event is very dynamic and this is where it get interesting.

Tan Sri Elyas Omar, ex BAM President, i.e. BAM President when Msia last won TC in 1992, giving his comments. He's shooting at BAM, esp Mr Ng for 'TC not so important' comment.

bam is going to the right direction - hell
02-06-2012, 01:07 AM #265
Wow, elyas is still around. A good hit on 'not so important' person.

Does anyone think or has anyone thought about how Ng Chin Chai's last 2 names is synonymous with the work he has accomplished - 'chin chai' done? This thing has lit up a light in my mind ever since his name was mentioned but I didn't think it will come and has come to this stage of mess.

Let's not make fun of people's names
I would suggest that we not make fun of people's names.

With Capten Chin Chai practically putting his own neck into the noose, I reckon being politically correct is the furthest from everyone else's minds. That being said, the reference made about his working capabilities IS an ironic coincidence to his name. Not to poke fun in any way. Besides there are far more ways to do that. I rest my case.

It's pretty obvious that he is seen as the clown now within BAM.
Anyway, he still has the last laugh with the mulla...
