Someone did post the news article in the other thread but everyone seems to still come here.
maybe the moderator can edit this thread title?
new???...they play for years with different patner if i am not mistaken...
Yes. Maybe he dont know the players, just forgive him/her.
???What theory is this?
WCH also cannot play next OG.
No matter how bad they are, AT LEAST they r able to reach final. Fuzzy?
forgive???...i just state the truth...^^...
If CTF/LWW ranked lower than Fuzzy then your theory is correct. But now Fuzzy's ranking is lower than The Uncles.If it is like this, Fuzzy is going to replace The Uncles, then for sure it's not only political or datuks are involved, even the colors....
This guy/gal dont like Uncles personally, read thru the posts.
Dato, oh Dato, have patience for a few days. I heard it was reported in Sin Chew that if uncles, esp LWW pass medical test, uncles will go. Only if uncle Lee injury serious, then Fuzzy replace... so...
And yeah, I already implied that certain quarters have preferance for Fuzzy. Fuzzy pair is featured more in malay press than uncles though uncles have better results, they are the only ...... pair. Same thing was said when Arif was chosen over TCS for TC.
But Fuzzy themselves very humble wan. Rexy doesnt play favourites, if the pairs no 4,5,6 were better, they'll be the ones we're debating now.
I wonder if LWW or CFT injured after BAM submitted the entries by 31st May dateline for OG, did the rules allow them being replaced by the fuzzy??
haha..at that time maybe no changes can be made already..haha
Rexy has cleared the air and stated Lee/Choong will be sent to Olympic if Wan Wah able to recover from injury. The other pair will be Koo/Tan as this pair is still the most fear by the opponents.
Still 3 months away from Olympic and unless Lee/Choong and Koo/Tan really screw up during this period of time else I don't see why Rexy should take any extreme action replacing.
Stay tune though, we know Rexy loves drama and you can bet more drama will arise just hope it doesn't impact players mood and cost us big time in Olympic :crying:
FUZZY are malays la...
Got special rights!
Fuzzy must go to OG!!!
No such thing special rights,it is about result proven.Choong-Lee still hold the edge over Fairuz.-Zakry.Rexy knew it..
Pls dun stir up the race issues here... we love peace and harmony and of coz, badminton

Wan Wah poser
By : Ajitpal Singh
THE Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) will be taking a huge risk if they register Choong Tan Fook-Lee Wan Wah for the Beijing Olympics.
Regardless of whether Wan Wah, who suffered an injury in his right shoulder, is given a clean bill of health by the National Sports Insitute (NSC) doctors, the player could easily aggravate his injury in competition or training prior to the Games.
International Olympic Council (IOC) rules clearly state that a nation cannot replace any of its registered athletes with an unregistered athlete after the Beijing Games registration deadline.
For badminton, countries have until Saturday to submit its complete list of shuttlers. Badminton World Federation (BWF) events and development manager, M. Venugopal confirmed the IOC ruling.
"In Malaysia's case, if Wan Wah is registered for the event and gets injured after the deadline, his partner (Tan Fook) can still compete in the doubles, provided he partners another registered shuttler. However, this must be done before the draw is finalised," said Venugopal yesterday.
This being the case, it would be a safer option for the BAM to opt for third choice Zakry Latif-Fairuzizuan Tazari to accompany Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong to Beijing.
Kien Keat-Boon Heong, Tan Fook-Wan Wah and Zakry-Fairuzizuan are the three doubles pairs who have qualified for the Olympics on merit. However, any one country can enter only two pairs for the event.
After being advised to rest for a week, Wan Wah reported for training yesterday but only for physical conditioning.
Wan Wah and the other Olympic-bound shuttlers also went through a medical test and will continue with the physical test today.
Meanwhile, national chief coach Yap Kim Hock said the BAM will announce its Olympic-bound squad on Friday.
"We, the coaching committee, will need to discuss the medical and physical test results of all the shuttlers before finalising the list," said Kim Hock.
The other shuttlers who have qualified for the Olympics are World No 2 Lee Chong Wei, Wong Mew Choo and Wong Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui.

If Fuzzy is selected, its not because of their colours ...
Rexy: Fairuzizuan-Zakry can handle pressure at Olympics
By LIM TEIK HUAT
KUALA LUMPUR: National doubles chief coach Rexy Mainaky does not think that Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Mohd Zakry Latif will get cold feet if they get the nod to make their Olympic debut in Beijing in August.
He said that the duo had proved their ability to handle big challenges in the recent Thomas Cup Finals in Jakarta.
Then, Fairuzizuan-Zakry kept Malaysia alive in the semi-final tie against China. They won the second doubles match against Guo Zhendong-Xie Xhongbo to level the tie at 2-2. But Malaysia went on to lose 2-3 with the defeat of Mohd Hafiz Hashim by Chen Jin.
“They did well in their first Thomas Cup appearance together and I am proud of them for keeping Malaysia's hopes alive at that point,” said Rexy.
“If they can handle the pressure in the Thomas Cup, I believe they will have no problem dealing with it in the Olympics. I would say that the pressure in the Thomas Cup Finals is greater because the whole team count on you. It's more individual in the Olympics.”
While the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) would have no problem naming the two men's pairs for the Beijing Games under normal circumstances, a right shoulder injury suffered by Lee Wan Wah in the Thomas Cup Finals has put his participation in a partnership with Choong Tan Fook in doubt.
Malaysia can pick Fairuzizuan-Zakry as one of their two entries because the duo are among the top 16 pairs in the world at the end of the Olympic qualifying period. The other pair who made the cut are Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong.
The BAM will subject all three pairs to medical and physical tests beginning today. They have to name the two pairs for the Beijing Games before Friday. No replacement is allowed after the submission of the final list.
“We have to find out the condition of all the players before making a final decision,” said Rexy.
Zakry said that they would not raise their hopes too high over getting to play in the Olympics.
“If we get to go, we will surely be ready for the challenges. We will continue training for our next assignment at the Singapore Open next month,” he said.
1 game in 1 tournament cannot proof anything. How about Guo Zhendong-Xie Xhongbo, they lost in semi final, is it mean they cannot handle pressure ? but they win in the final mean they have strong mentality ? If follow MAS style, after Guo Zhendong-Xie Xhongbo lost in the semi, they probably won't have a chance to play in the final.
Anyone may still get injure after the deadline, how about KKK get injure during Singapore Open....so they shouldn't send KKK/TBH to olympic too......
we cannot guarantee any one will not get injure after the deadline, unless DO NOT send any of the qualify players to tournament, and all of the qualify players cannot do training (training may get injure too) until after olympic. So from now on, those players can go to movie everyday.....oh cannot, how about if they accident get injure during driving to the cinema, they best way is keep them in the jail until after olympic.
I think this article is very unfair to LWW.
(remember LCY get accident right before World Championship).
as i say before...no one knew the player better than coach...is rexy a malaysia badminton fan???no...he is profesional...so...he will not say that h!!!my good boy...u win against chinese 2n md...u can go OG....
he already say he prepare to let fairuz/zakry to face cai/fu and let ctf/kkk in second double...and this plan been cancelled due to ctf FLU...this mean rexy knew fairuz/zakry can win over cai/fu and not the off form 1st/2nd double...
u get what i mean???...i am not defending any pair...i just want to say...rexy was not small kid...and ykh too...they will consider all the factor...any pairs send to OG will be the best on current situation......
