    I couldn't help noticing (sadly) that apart from LCW, there was no other MAS player beyond toe quarter-finals stage at the just-concluded Indonesia Open PSS.

    This usually not only happens in the just concluded Ina PSS. But in MOST of the international badminton tournament i would rather say.
    If LCW retires, it would be a total chaos.

    Default Is this a signal for a turnaround in fortunes?

    Malaysia badminton team nets $14 mln sponsorship

    A major bank has struck a record $13.7 million sponsorship deal with Malaysia's badminton team in the hope it propels the country to its first Olympic gold medal in any sport.

    Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) general manager Kenny Goh told AFP that the Maybank cash injection will be used to secure an "elusive" first Olympic gold at London 2012 and create a new pool of players.

    "This is the biggest sum of money we have ever received. The money will be used to develop our elite team and create new talents," Goh said.

    Maybank replaces automaker Proton as the BAM's main sponsor for six years, although Proton will also continue their sponsorship deal for the next five years with an annual contribution of $666,112.

    Full report: http://sports.xin.msn.com/article.as...mentid=5017033

    Edit: Meanwhile, in an article by Boopathy of the New Straits Times that features on the BAM website, Ng Chin Chai has this to say:

    Chin Chai said the long term target is for BAM to be financially independent.

    "NSC has been supporting BAM for a long time but has indicated it will gradually reduce its funding. We have always been grateful for what NSC has done but we will receive whatever it offers as BAM is aware of the need to be financially independent."

    That, should all parties do their part, will be achieved if results start flowing.

    Hope they are using the money wisely.. With so much money pumped in from Maybank, i can't see why Mas can't find another LCW or maybe a better player than LCW himself.
    Some photos from the signing ceremony.
    Btw, why is NHL and NHE present there? I thought they are not under BAM anymore? Or maybe they are already sponsored by by Maybank much earlier already? That's what i guessed.

    Decision next week
    By K.M. Boopathy
    2011/07/08
    Full report: http://www.nst.com.my/nst/articles/4...icle/art_print

    Excerpts:

    ...Selvaraj has said he is not discounting the possibility of coming in full-time but wants to meet Nadzmi first before coming to a decision.

    ...Sevaraj, a senior manager with Bata Malaysia, is keen to play only a part-time role and confirmed that former national chief coach Razif Sidek is also keen on offering his services on a part-time basis.

    ...He suggested that BAM could consider a two-man team to help co-ordinate and monitor the players and coaches.

    ...BAM is looking at a minimum salary of RM8,000 for the high performance director.

    James and Razif are smart to get on the gravy train part-time, to pad their day-time salary job. All these thousands ringgit for all these performance dudes and 6-digit coaches swallow up all the millions ringgit funding, leaving behind some chicken feed for the workers that actually count on to deliver the result, like TCS paying roughly 1000 ringgit a month that he cannot take his GF to McDonald for a bite...marvellous planning for sure...then again, we are talking about BAM and my countrymen running this business, what do I expect? Like they say in America, too many chiefs and not enough Indians...LOL

    .

    True

    Feed the soldiers peanuts and the general wine & steaks,

    there will be a weak army.

    No matter how big the palace is or how solid the wall,

    its a matter of time all will crumble down .

    The soldiers are in fact the backbone

    and a sad thing nobody is going to realize it except some bcers

    Oh I think people realize it. Everywhere. But most people are just too busy preparing for the next day, the next fight, the next paycheck, the next school tuition fee, the next mortgage....

    And sooner rather than later, they become victims of that universal disease: apathy.

    I don't doubt Bcers, malaysian badminton fans and even Rexy for their passion in badminton, looking at nation pride and winning majors and that apply to all pro players including LCW. Of course, LCW earns every ringgit he made. But pro badminton is a big business, it is business first, sport second. Now, with RM14M funding windfall, BAM is flushed with cash. BAM holds the political power card in deciding the fate of players e.g. banning TCS for being bad boy, bypass Gan/Tan in MD for WC11. Now, BAM can dish out the cash for James, Razif, after all, let's reward and spread the loot among our buddy friends, why not?
    I was in MAS back to those days when James was playing, and he was not good as a player, why all of a sudden, he is this high performance coach thingie and a Datukship to boot. Working at Bata, what is his claim to fame as high performance coach? Malaysian politics is who you know, not what you can do or has done
    Money talk loud and I say everybody has a price. Rexy is secured and comfy in MAS, to unearth his family to go elsewhere, unless Rexy and Hendy are fired, both will stay put and the paychecks, like what Limsy said are in the hundred thousand ringgit annually will provide an excellent lifestyle in KL, change RM to INA ruppees, then pray to continue to work for BAM for more years and both retire instant millionaires. Rexy/Hendy make more income coaching than playing, why tempt fate and move elsewhere, the grass may not be greener.
    Except for BAM, maybe Japan, KOR, INA will pay Rexy/Hendy what BAM pays. And do you think these nations will tolerate failures, they expect results, fast. Only BAM is bullet proof give a flying hoot to what public says or thinks, it is business as usual even when Malaysian badminton is facing doomsday. The person saving BAM is LCW to continue deliver winnings. Take away LCW, BAM has a stable of high performance dude, and overpaid coaches. Maybe BAM should fire all players and field the coaches to represent MAS, after all, the coaches were proven gold medal winners and achieve far more than the players have combined Now, BAM see ZZ winning WJC and ZZ's little ZZ siblings, BAM see a savior or saviors in them, so what is the price to join BAM, Mr Zul?

    Hahaha, I also think Rexy & Hendrawan will quit BAM in 2012. Maybe one or two coaches, the better ones will go off too.
    TKH then will be MD chief, Rashid(sadly for me) will be there till his hair become grey/white.

    Who knows, by 2013, Zulfadli still with KLRC, coached by ........a certain high profile Datuk, assisted by another high profile Datuk

    Looking at the punishment TCS got , for trying to leave BAM, the trick is never to join BAM unless ZZ joins on his terms. ( like if things don t work out, BAM cannot ban him from tournaments should he leave. ) After all, ZZ has proven he can be champion without BAM. ZZ probably has the advantage of more competitive experience than his AJC opponents since he has more freedom to choose his tournaments. If he had been in BAM, he would probably be languishing as BAM is more concerned about setting aside money as incentives for coaches and players rather than using the money to send more players to more tournaments to build up experience first.

    Why James was appointed the performance director?

    Well, there were only two applicants for the post

    His rival was one without the Datukship and coaching in bam

    So naturally... big balls make more sound
