So, you think just one person is responsible for this mess, i.e., Rashid Sidek? Ok, lets say your idea has merit. Remember Rashid is just a coach (yeah, ok, Chief Coach, but only head of coaches nevertheless) and there are others who wield much more power above him in the hierarchy of BAM, and at other levels. We seem to focus too much on the most visible part of BAM, i.e. the top players and whatever happens at that level. But if the foundation is shaky, the top will suffer. What about the process of discovery and filtering of talent from the grassroots level? How much opportuity is there for hanky-panky and favouritism as a potential candidate makes it through each level? How efficiently does this system work? Is sufficient incentive given to youngsters (in a contemporary way) to join the programme? My point is this: (and I consider it really important) there are many points of failure within the system that can be touched off or even exploited by people who know how to manipulate the system. Besides, the system is porous enough to allow for incompetence to be accepted as the default, and professionalism or commitment to be sometimes viewed with suspicion. In the end, it is about the self-fulfilling cycle of power and control. And in that context, Rashid is IMO just another willing pawn.
