I am pretty sure Bcers from other countries need special devices to record HQ or badminton matches in their respective sport channels itself. I believe most of the Malaysians are wealthy enough to hire at least one maid and have at least 1-2 cars per household. If I am not mistaken, they are even willing to spend RM50 (per entry) to most of the night clubs in KL frequently and spend RM x,000+ to buy designer bags/product like longchamp, burberry, iphone-s and etc. Why they find it hard to subscribe to the recording function of Astro continue to elude me. Last time I checked, downloading movies (pirated or not) from Malaysia continue to be one of the most popular activities in Malaysia especially among the youngsters. Why they find it hard to do the other way round of uploading to sharefolders is again beyong my imagination. Maybe they are just not so into badminton or they don't want to contribute. Choose one, or both of these options, cause either way it shows that most Malaysians lack interest in this sport. Of course, I do not blame them as they are free to choose their lifestyle. All I wanted to highlight is the lack of interest to contribute to this sport, that's all. Note that I mentioned that professional career are financially more rewarding if they can actually land an ideal job. The last time I checked, most of the high qualification graduates could not find a job. There are rumors that Malaysia have an over supply of graduate medical students due to some brilliant stategy by the government although I am not sure. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-14823042 If you compare those who can't make it top in sport to those graduates which earn top range salary, of course the contrast is great. But if you compared them to the jobless graduates, is not that bad isn't it? I agree with you that sports career has higher risks. But if you look at the bigger pictures and compare the return investment of badminton players and professional careers, things might not be as bad as you think. Parents are willing to send millions of RM to send their children to tuition and oversea to pursue a degree with high hope that their kids can land a top earning jobs. However, they lack the same confidence when it comes to supporting their children in sport career. I am sure it costs less to train they children up to be a badminton player. Not to mention that their kids can only bring in income after 16 years of investment in education wheares good badminton players could actually earn a living earlier than that. Don't you think that this is more of a sort of biased perception that cause them to make such a choice? Again, these parents are free to do whatever they want with their money. All I wanted to do here is to provide another perspective to look at this issue.
