There is no doubt he still very much passionate for the sports, but because of his age, there's only so much he can do.
In my mind, he might prefer:
- someone (other than the current management team) who's capable and trully understand the sports well to be given the opportunities to steer BAM into the right direction. And maybe, a one-head coach strategy be adopted
- to contribute his services and counselling as a advisor or mentor. That way, the new person in charge will have the additional backup support from someone who has done it and been there

NOT MOVING: Elyas takes association's present officials to task for being stagnant
FORMER BA of Malaysia (BAM) president Tan Sri Elyas Omar has lambasted the association over the dismal state of badminton in the country.
In direct reference to the association's present president Datuk Seri Nadzmi Salleh's leadership, Elyas said those concerned have failed to raise the bar despite being given ample time.
Elyas, who was president between 1985-92, also offered a helping hand to manage the sport. "How much time should we give those who have failed despite being around for 12 years? When I was president, I gave myself three Thomas Cup editions to win the title and achieved it in 1992," said Elyas in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
"If one fails after a targeted term then a new face should be brought in to manage badminton. We gauge the strength of the sport through the Thomas Cup, where at my time we had a host of good players to depend on.
"Logically, we should be making progress but we are not. We do not have a solid foundation and to start with ... we need academies."
He said priority should be given to developing an all-round formidable Thomas Cup squad.
"They first need a complete overhaul in terms of structure, management and training programme before they can think of developing a solid Thomas Cup team," said the former Kuala Lumpur mayor, who also chided BAM for making wrong decisions in development.
"Maybe their way is not the right one although they think it is the best one.
"BAM must be held accountable for everything. The BAM leadership must be sleeping on his job as despite claiming he could bring in funds, we do not have a huge base of players. We cannot depend on just one or two players as if they go, someday our badminton will be nothing.
"BAM needs to develop a huge base of players of the same quality on par with the world's best."
On whether he was willing to govern the national association, Elyas said it is a tough question but it depends on the majority.
"I am old but it is up to the badminton fraternity and fans. The fate of badminton should be decided by the public and not by one person," he said.
On the recent resignation of former Olympic medallists Rexy Mainaky and Yoo Yong Sung as coaches, Elyas said it was a bad sign.
"I believe something had happened as they left so suddenly. It is a huge setback," he said.

I believe that Misbun Sidek would become a great president for BAM
I believe that Misbun Sidek would become a great president for BAM.
Misbun was one of Eddy Choong's trainees; and I expect Misbun has taken in some of Eddy's ideas of Badminton for Malaysia.
What's Eddy Choong's ideas of Badminton for Malaysia?
Have a listen to what Eddy Choong said at this link;
