HOW LOW CAN ONE GO

Well very low if one takes a look at the situation of the doubles pair Gan Teik Chai and Tan Bin Shen.

And I am not looking at how BAM treated them in omitting the duo from the World Champs.

But rather the attempt of one senior badminton official who is asking the state BA’s to ban the duo for making a complaint directly to BAM and subsequently to OCM without going through the respective BA’s.

Since it’s regulation that this official is so concerned about, I suggest he looks at the BAM constitution in totality as the BAM Exco is powerless but has made many decisions over the past year and could be deemed as unconstitutional.

So just do what you have to, maybe it’s better that BAM move on and just come out with a fair selection process rather then trying underhand tactics to frighten players.

You are no mafia but are starting to sound like one.

And as a reminder look at how BAM compensated Roslin….

ROSLIN Hashim will not receive monetary compensation but the BA of Malaysia (BAM), which accidentally omitted his name from two super series tournaments in May, will allow him to train with the national team and send him for all remaining super series tournaments until the end of the year.

Roslin had sought Sports Commissioner Tan Sri Elyas Omar’s assistance and laid down several demands, including a place in next month’s World Championships, after BAM’s error in omitting his name from the Singapore and Indonesia Opens.

BAM has already granted Roslin a wild card for the World Championships and president Datuk Nadzmi Salleh said the shuttler can enjoy all the training facilities and will be allowed to train with Rashid Sidek’s Project 2010-2012 squad.

Roslin can also compete in the remaining five super series tournaments this year for which BAM will bear the total cost.

“I think we have come to an amicable agreement after a discussion with the Sports Commissioner and we have considered his requests except for cash compensation,” said Nadzmi.

Roslin had demanded monetary compensation close to RM200,000 for missing the two tournaments.
