    Well, yah, it's probably nothing more than a non-story but that's the thing...

    ..i think that's why the AE Organizer contacted PBSI perhaps to get a confirmation abt the report, so in case he won't go, they can do a re-draw(MS)...But for some reason PBSI still denied the report that Taufik is not going to AE...Taufik is holding up PBSI and, in turn, PBSI are holding up the AE Organizer, at the end both parties are holding up everybody involved/following the AE:p:(...Boy, what a >mess<!!:p
    Btw, how late can they do a re-draw?? Can they do it this coming Monday, if indeed Taufik is not coming??..:confused:

    *sigh* anyways, like cooler said "if no one is gonna blink", and budge, everyone's gonna feel the effect...It's like if Taufik can't make any noise(s) *ON THE COURT*, in this AE, he'll stir up something *OFF THE COURT*..And like our NGP/DinkAlot often wrote, PBSI & Taufik are indeed "The Drama Queens of badminton"..:p:D;)

    In Joseph Conrad's The Heart of Darkness, Kurtz says, "The horror, the horror!"

    In Badminton, with respect to Taufik and the PBSI, we say, "Oh, the drama, the drama!" :p :D :D :D :D :D :D

    i dont understand that guy (TH). He stand to potentially gain a cushy job and celebrity status upon retirement from a pro career but it seem he throwing that away in exchange for a spat with pbsi over some small appearance fee at papua. If he do plan to exit pbsi, he is sure going out with a bang!

    Hahah... So far Taufik said that he is not going "unless something happen" it means that there is chance but most likely his is not going.

    I am sure as well that he is not going to AE.
    No news from Indo about it...
    So, it just PBSI confirmed to AE organiser that they don't have the news so they can blame on TH if he is not playing.

    Hmm....i think it's time...

    ...and it's better to just scratch off his name for the upcoming AE...Reading the last report, looks like nothing has changed and Taufik is not budging at all...PBSI has given a green light for him to go but Taufik still stands steadfast on his decision..:rolleyes: :p
    So, for the benefit of everyone involved, i hope the AE organizer can just move on and re-do the MS draw...No Taufik, and let's just move on..*sigh*:p :eek: :(

    Really a sensational seeker! Still uncertainty about TH's participation until INA contingent arrives at Birmingham. PBSI denies what TH wants, last minute decision depends on TH's mind. Who is the decision maker actually? PBSI or TH? Undoubtedly one TH is so powerful in this case although his job is prof.athlete, but supported by his father in-law?!

    haha i think he just wanna create a special mood for him to win the AE (as in making a big story about his withdrawal and in the last minute before tourney begins he suddenly appear with his racket in his hand and beat everybody else to win) and it'll be a damn big sensational news....

    BUT....

    just wait till it backfires some day... :D:D:D:D:D:p

    that's some idea! if he wins, he looks like a hero. and if he loses, ppl would understand that he had probs to deal with and his mind wasn't in the right place.

    It is confirmed that Taufik will not go to AE. I have checked with various PBSI sources. He won't budge even after many many many people try to influence him to change his mind. .....He wasn't on the flight that carried the whole team. :( :crying:
