Back-up players will not be sacrificed
By K.M. Boopathy
NATIONAL singles coach Rashid Sidek has confirmed that only a handful of back-up players will be utilised for sparring sessions with Lee Chong Wei as he doesn't want to disrupt the programme of the younger players.
...Chong Wei Feng, Liew Daren and Chan Kwong, who were in the elite squad before the two squads were merged, will be the regular sparring partners for Chong Wei while back-up players like Arif Latif and Goh Soon Huat will also be utilised.
"There has been some confusion but the training programme of the back-up players will not be disrupted. We will only use the better players to spar with Chong Wei on a more regular basis as they will benefit from training with the World No 1," said Rashid, who returned from Changzhou, China yesterday.
"Only Arif and Soon Huat have the ability to spar with Chong Wei while (Misbun) Ramdan, to a certain extent, can be utilised from time to time while the rest are still far behind.
..."Thus, Hendrawan's programme will not be disrupted as he can continue grooming the younger group. The back-up players normally have their own training for an hour before sparring sessions begin and they are put through extra sessions if needed.

RAW DEAL FOR MAYBANK
Saturday, September 24, 2011
Despite announcing one of the biggest sponsorship deals in July, it looks as if Maybank has been taken for a ride by the Badminton Association of Malaysia.
...For starters the backdrop at the BAM office still carries the logo of the old sponsor.
And most major dailies still carry pictures of players wearing the attire of the old sponsors.
...And BAM cannot even have a proper website in place, more often then not finding it's band with exceeded. And it lacks substance, relying on just news reports carried by the main stream media.
...You do not need a marketing guru to teach you about branding and looking after your sponsors, but then when officials in BAM speak with forked tongues then nothing is impossible right.
...While BAM continue their witch hunt with regards to independent players, with officials even threatening players that they cannot use the word Malaysia on their back of the jerseys, they should spend that time doing better for their sponsors as when you travel around the world it's Maybank's money you are using.
The word Malaysia does not belong to you BAM and while no political party had laid claim to it, I see no reason why you prevent Malaysians for promoting Malaysia.
Telling independent players that they can only use Yonex attire at sparring spells arrogance and vested interest on your part.

Proton knows they are smarter than the sleeping Maybank. Kudos, Nadzmi! If Maybank is dimmer than Proton, it means there s no hope for MAS badminton. The players should just enjoy their world holidays, courtesy of a generous sponsor. Live it while you can!

recent from Shin Chew press, Bao Chunlai has warned the BAM especially Rashid Sidek that there will be no strong mens single players from MAS squad after LCW's retired. Unlike China team who like CL, CJ, DPY are to takeover LD's place in future while Mas team don't have any capable players can take over LCW's place.

From Dhaliwal's blog...
A MOCKERY OF NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
Thursday, October 06, 2011
...Some three months ago, BAM came out with a ruling ( they normally have this habit of shifting the posts when faced with a situation that leaves eggs on their face ) that all players, whether in BAM or independent must play in the local GP Circuit.
But having made that rule, it is BAM that stands accused of breaking that rule based on the number of forced withdrawals in the National GP Finals scheduled from 12th to 15th October at Stadium Juara.
World number 1, Dato Lee Chong Wei, who will be playing at the Danish Open, has qualified and according to the final list displayed at the BAM website, will play in the National GP Finals.
But why is it that some top players - the likes of Koo Kien Keat, Tan Boon Heong,Hoon Thien How, Koo Kien Keat, Goh Liu Ying, Ng Hui Lin, Ng Hui Ern, Woon Khe Wei and Lim Khim Wah withdrawn from the GP Finals.
With BAM withdrawing those players, the likes of Mohd Zakry Latif/Fairuzizuan Tazari are deprived of playing alongside their partners who played in the GP Circuit - Tan Boon Heong/Koo Kien Keat.
Now this is what you call double standards, for its okay for BAM players toi withdraw but when independent players opt to do the same, BAM makes a huff and puff about it.

This would be a better thread to say this.
If you let politician runs the show, they are only temporary. They will say, oh.. I was the leader then. Now, I am out of it. Too bad.
Good to let those former champion to run it. The have more credibility and they know their reputation is at stake.
For politician, they could care less but to collect the 'big' pay cheque. Applies to any country.

i think the way it is runned is more like i dont like you so i dont field you or give u adequete/enought training
but at the same time we cannot fully blame bam and have to blame the players like tbh/kkk wat happened???
wch is still performing to a certain extent even though he isnt with bam and age is catching up to him
but at the same time former players are not given enough recognition.....they eventually become dust in the wind.
besides the game is not promoted enough. we talk big of how we are good in badminton but it is not well supported by the local big businesses.....tournaments and all are organized between badminton centres but lack of sponsorship.
and too much red tape internally.....like if u quit bam then they wont allow u to play internationally for xx years.....total bs man
