Kuala Lumpur: Despite good intentions, from constant efforts to change the scoring system of badminton to the "smart idea" of US$400,000 Player Incentive Scheme introduced by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) on Friday, in a bid to make the sport more attractive; these moves showed just how out of touch with reality BWF really is.Out of touch, incompetence and what other terms can I use to describe BWF? Let me know!

The scoring system was changed from 15x3 serve points to 7x5 serve points in 2002; back to 15x3 serve points before the existing rally system from 2005.

Kuala Lumpur: Tan Boon Heong has vented his disappointment at not being selected for next month’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Boon Heong won the gold with Koo Kien Keat at the previous Commonwealth but was excluded from this year's edition. Instead, the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) has chosen Goh V Shem, Tan Wee Kiong for the men's doubles.Boon Heong, you need to forget about past glory, always start from zero (like a baby). Embrace the values that made you a champion, be truth to yourself, the game and your opponents; otherwise the game and your opponents will be truth to you


"I don't have any problems with my teammates, I was just hoping for an equal and fair player selection process. I did ask Cheh Chang about this, his answer was the decision has been made."
