Meanwhile, public perception never changed, it's the same argument isn't it. I mean look at the last 10 responses here, it's the same for as long as I have been a member here..... low commitment from all parties, agenda driven officials that's other than national badminton, bad roots policies, corruption (gasp)...etc. waning public interest? Maybe....but Badminton academies are still full. It's still not easy book courts for social badminton.....but Malaysian players are still struggling to realize their potential..since the 70s. The best we can sum it up is; we are a Badminton loving country, with good players sometimes. We have never been a Badminton powerhouse country.
