The bigger picture is Frost's present employment circumstances.

result orientated Oxford graduated Sports Minister and of course Tengku
the BAM President also is into Change Management as he tried with TAM,
who had unfortunately good intentions but very poor man management skills.

Late last year, I spoke with a celebrated foreign player who was a coach with the BAM.
To say that he was bewildered and frustrated would be to severely understate it.
Before he signed on, he had been assured of 'a free hand' in all on-court matters.
However, once he had moved in, things turned out to be very different.
Firstly, he was told that he couldn't use his own coaching plans but would have to stick to the BAM's coaching plans. At best, he could 'suggest changes' and it would be up to the BAM to agree or not. Well, what use is a different coach if new elements cannot be brought in and the old coaching plans cannot be modified?
And, of course, none of his suggestions were found 'suitable'.
Secondly, he was 'advised' to change his picks (which were based on skills, potential and fitness) and spread out the selection to include an equal mix of races!
It was horrifyingly bewildering because he didn't even know who was what race... and in most cases, he was too foreign to even make out anyone's race.
Thirdly, he was told his new picks weren't eligible to spar with the established players!
What was more distressing was that it was OK for senior players to invite their 'friends' to come over for regular games but it was not OK for them to play with youngsters prepping to represent Malaysia!
I'm no pessimist but, IMHO, Malaysian badminton is heading for a nasty professional demise.

For example, my cousin was previously in training as a national bowler, and was among the highest scores amongst the trainees. When it came to selection time though, he was discarded aside - not because he wasn't good enough, but because there was ENOUGH QUOTA for the "C" (almost all the high scorers were "C"). They have to let the "M" included so that there would be an equal mix of races. And the "M" were in the "low scores" category - not even getting about 120+ (out of 300!).
So when you brought this up, I am not surprised. Such bull has totally destroyed sports in Malaysia. You are leaving out the top performers just because you want "equality"? Now BAM is reaping what it sow, and I am afraid if they do not change anytime soon, there WILL be no more BAM.

even if bam can get morten frost its just finding the tip of the ice berg.
the rest goes down to the very bottom grass root level.
without them doing the 'proper' job, even 2 morten frost would get any result.
as I have mentioned several times before, the problem starts from that level ...
to cut the story short
when a chef get **** ingredient, what comes out??
here's one scenario (again):
there was a clinic conducted by then, a newly recruited china coach (left hander and now still in bam/bjss).
during the show (through a translator), he wanted all state coaches
to emphasize on the 'proper' hitting techniques covering the very basic of badminton.
this was through his observations during the tournament earlier.
after nearly an hour, I heard this from the coaches.
"we have a renewable yearly contract for our players performances and if we do like what he wants, players won't get fit enough to win (12-18 years old) and there goes our contract."
isn't that a funny system?
I know this can't be fixed because in Malaysia, everybody knows somebody who can fix thing :P

Hi pBm, I have said many time when it comes to Malaysian management, 'mana ada sistem' 'where got system'?. That is why I said the top manager cannot be a Malaysian, including OTB cannot apply.
The current status quo does not work, to continue this path is suicidal, I think we all agree on this. BAM has to do something fast, if MF comes, hopefully BAM finds 'the tip of the iceberg' and should be positive. If MF has full authority, again hopefully that is true, maybe the grass root system can be improved. I hope MF reads this post, and hire you to run the grass root.

all he needs to do is privatised the grass root.
be it a club or an association let them show their work or produce
and share whatever fund accordingly.
in the end those who sit on the state association chairs
getting no results will automatically be removed!
