It's a dogs world out there as the newspapers hit the stands this morning and a lap dog of the self proclaimed Badminton Asia Confederation President went yelping this morning.

The lap dog was peeved at the truth the newspapers wrote on how a compromise had been reached and how his master had sold a bluff to the nation, by withdrawing after securing the BAC President's position is a very dubious and questionable manner.

More so when one newspaper wrote that only 12 BAC members were at the EGM when BAC actually has 41 member countries.

Claiming to be a honest person, this lap dog is the most dangerous as maybe its not an alpha male as he continues to bitch around, running people down in order to cover his own mistakes and slander that he barks about trying to justify the wrong doings, hiding behind the face of religion.

Anyway before going further, lets dedicate this song to this lap dog, for his efforts in waking up journalists early today, barking out....

Who let the dogs out?
Who, who, who, who, who?
Who let the dogs out?
Who, who, who, who, who?

Who let the dogs out?
Who, who, who, who, who?
Who let the dogs out?
Who, who, who, who, who?

Say, a doggy is nuttin' if he don' have a bone
All doggy, hold ya' bone, all doggy, hold it
A doggy is nuttin' if he don' have a bone
All doggy, hold ya' bone, all doggy, hold it

Who let the dogs out?
Who, who, who, who, who?
Who let the dogs out?
Who, who, who, who, who?

It is sad that the Badminton Association of Malaysia council will today be given a brief by their President on how important solidarity is and what sacrifices mean.

The charade is to justify the so called ascendency to the BAC President's position even though it was done through a manner that lacks ethics, morality and above all illegal so much so that a case is pending in the High Court in Malaysia.

There are more important things on the plate as so far as badminton is concerned then the manner in which Malaysia virtually conned its way to the President's position in Asia.

Holding top positions was never a priority for our former badminton leaders who put the priority on the performance of our shuttlers ahead of personal glory.

But how things have changed over the years as the jostle for positions seem to be the main concern and the performance be damned.

It all started with a dream of wresting the BWF Presidency, a plan that went horribly wrong when the BAM President got only TWO nominations. Suddenly the two Chinamen felt that their days were numbered as they had let their President down.

So it was plan B, to save face as the Chinese will call it. Off some went flying to Bangkok and Jakarta, in the name of Asian solidarity and schemed what everyone knew, that is to oust the BAC President just because his advisor was Ganga Rao, a man who infact put the BAM President where he is today.

Just figure this out, BAC has 41 affiliates and by their own admission only 12 were in Bangkok at the EGM who supported the ouster and the appointment of he BAC new President.

Even in the political scenario in our country the BN government was denied the 2/3 majority and are having trouble managing the nation. And here we have only one quarter supporting this illegal appointment yet someone is going to accept it gleefully and the two Chinamen think they have won it big.

What you three have done will go down in the annals of badminton history as dubious and mischievous manner in which Malaysia took over the BAC Presidency, and will soon be exposed for all to see.

Go about doing things correctly as there is still time to save grace, get the no confidence motion tabled in the AGM scheduled for April 21, and if agreed by the majority, go ahead and accept the position.

But if greed as so often happens in Malaysia is the key word, accept it today, get a pat on your back from the council, and have that tidak apa attitude prevailing as you manage an Asia truly divided just because you cannot garner enough votes for the BWF elections.

Ask yourself one question, the 12 who voted ou into BAC, where were they when you wanted nominations for the BWF Presidency?

If this is not a compromise, then your dictionary is seriously flawed.

Though the BAM President Nadzmi Salleh may have denied it, BAC President Katsuto Mommi believes that his so called ouster was engineered in relation to the BWF Presidential election.

And he voiced his disdain at Nadzmi in describing him as a dictator.

"Firstly I want to ask Nadzmi if he knows what that word means. This is because neither he nor any BAM official has raised any displeasure as to how BAC has been run for the past two years," said Katsuto when contacted in Japan.

"I have met Nadzmi several times and not once has he voiced his displeasure at how affairs were conducted in BAC.

"Now he makes statements to say I am a dictator. Does he realise that the commercial value in BAC was only USD70,000 when I took over and today it's worth USD700,000.

"I believe this move to remove me has everything to do with the forthcoming BWF elections."

Katsuto added that the BAC had already scheduled an AGM on April 21 on Taiwan so any motion of such should have been tabled there as it was a scheduled meeting.

"Why the rush to convene an EGM within ten days and not wait for the AGM?," questioned Katsuto who has sent an email to all members of BAC seeking the resignation of the BAC Secretary.

"Another factor is that why was the requisition for the EGM made on a sheet of paper and not on the letterheads of the respective national badminton associations. This adds to the conspiracy factor."

Katsuto also said that he was perplexed that statements made in Malaysian newspapers saying that BAM convened a meeting last Friday to decide on the motion.

"It's really funny as Nadzmi had signed the call for the EGM on February 24 but only two days before the illegal EGM did the BA of Malaysia endorse it,"said Katsuto who said that the BWF will be informed of the developments.

"I believe this matter is in the Malaysian court and a hearing is scheduled for April 11 in Kuala Lumpur," revealed Katsuto.

"I will not jump the gun and let the due process of the law take place. As for Nadzmi and his sincerity, I leave it to all to decide."


Despite what the main stream media wrote today, the fact of the matter is that BAC has 41 affiliates and only a handful were at Bangkok for the EGM.

Hence watch this date, April 11 as that's the day the battle for the BAC Presidency will be fought on a different court.

For an affiliate has now challenged the EGM validity.

And yes for the BAM President to say that the Japanese is a dictator is akin to spitting in the air.

It's best that Nadzmi just shuts his mouth and not use dubious tactics to get a seat to save his face in wake of his disastrous administration of badminton in the country as we continue to slide.

With their failure to get legitimate votes and backing for Dato Nadzmi Salleh for election as President of the BWF, the so called powerful officials have now staged a coup but dethroning the BAC President and installing the Malaysian as President.

Read on the BAC Press Release here and note the Malaysian presence in the picture. Suffice to say that the entire process was illegal, contrary to the BAC regulations, which ironically is registered in Malaysia.

Hence it's no surprise that a legal challenge has been initiated by a BAC member country in Malaysia and the matter is pending in the High Court.

This is a shameful act to the nation, and such matters must be dealt with by the Sports Minister.

BAM ignores poor performance by its players and never hold any inquiries on the Europe Disaster of their players but convened a BAM Exco Meeting last Friday to discuss plans on this coup.

Such a despicable act that shames the nation ought to be highlighted.

The finalists for the 22nd edition of the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup will only be determined after the dust settles following the final league matches on Saturday.

As it stands Australia and Malaysia are in the driving seat, both with 8 points but Australia with a superior goal difference of plus 8 while Malaysia are on plus 2.

Both the teams need a draw in their final matches, Australia against New Zealand and Malaysia against India to book their places in the final.

A win for New Zealand and a Malaysian defeat will see the two Oceania countries contesting the final on Sunday.

New Zealand set-up a crucial match against Australia on Saturday when they defeated India 2-0 at the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup.

Thus with six points they will battle Australia in a winner take all match that could well decide the finalist.


Korea held Australia to a 3-3 draw in the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup but really it was three points lost then one gained as Korea led till two seconds from the end.

The draw thus puts Korea out of the running for a place in the final while Australia will have to win against New Zealand on Saturday.


Well looking at what is happening within the badminton fraternity, the Badminton Association of Malaysia is willing to stoop very very low and are master tacticians of diversion.

Just look at see how they divert the attentions of the Malaysians in regards to the poor achievements of our players in Europe and play a major role in trying to remove the Presidentof the Badminton Asia Confederation.

Dato Nadzmi Salleh is one of the signatories of the motion of no confidence against the BAC President, but was there a BAM Council or EXCO Meeting held to endorse such a motion?

If there was none, then why claim that the BAC President acts arbitrarily as you have done the same?

And why is it that Nadzmi is now using the international forum to prolong his tiff with ex BAM Secretary Ganga Rao?

The real reason behind all this is the fact that Ganga and the BAC President are supporting Paul Erik Hoyer Larsen in the battle for the BWF Presidency and this has put the Malaysia way back in the pecking order.

If it is hurting that people are working against you, will ever heard the phrase, you reap what you sow.

Four years ago Nadzmi and gang ensured that Dato Seri Andrew Kam did not win the BWF Presidency by not only nominating a Korean, but also went out in vengeance to campaign against a fellow Malaysian. Is that not treachery to the nation?

And today when the odds are stacked against Nadzmi, the two henchmen of his has come out with a grand plan - sort of a reverse take over, by creating a vacancy in BAC so that Nadzmi can then withdraw from the BWF race and take over BAC on a silver platter, thus denying the country of a chance yet again to get control of BWF.

India came from a goal down to defeat Pakistan 3-1 to register their first win in the 22nd edition of the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Ipoh.

The young Indian side showed plenty of maturity and composure to avenge the Indian defeat at the AHF Champions Trophy in Doha last December.

More importantly it kept the Indian hopes alive for a podium finish at the Azlan Shah Cup.


Defending champions New Zealand got back onto the winning trail when they defeated South Korea 3-0 at the Azlan Shah Stadium.

New Zealand, the defending champions, had lost both their opening matches, 4-3 against Pakistan and 3-2 against Malaysia and were looking for a win to secure points.

And when play got underway. Pakistan edged defending champions New Zealand 4-3 in an exciting tie that saw New Zealand coming from three goals down to equalise but succumbed to a Muhammad Imran hattrick eventually.
