    Be careful for what you wished for.. Demonstration occured in West Sumatra criticizing the president for his focus in building new infrastructures. The sign reads "we don't eat infrastructure??" And yesterday one major route between two big cities in West Sumatra collapsed

    Badminton 2018 Discussion Thread

    In 2015 there was cookie wars, now this.. Hopefully it is resolved soon, since it will be sad if Denmark sent weak teams to Tokyo Olympics and Thomas/Uber in their home soil.

    National & International Sports Awards

    We had our first ever Indonesian Sports Awards on Friday. Basically most of the awards are useless since it is based on popular vote and used the priority of Football > Badminton > Some Memorable/Viral Athletes > I don't know who they are. Here are the winner of non-vote awards: Athlete of the Year: Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo/Marcus Fernaldi Gideon (Badminton) Young Athlete of the Year: Lalu Muhammad Zohri (Athletics) Coach of the Year: Herry Iman Pierngadi (Badminton, the coach of athlete of the year ) Sport Club/Institution of the Year: PB Djarum Badminton Club (Kevin Sanjaya's club ) Lifetime Achievement Award: Christian Hadinata (Badminton)

    International Olympic Committee News

    Although TPE is safe for Tokyo 2020, the referendum already had its effects. In Badminton Asia (where China has considerable political power), Taipei has been stripped from hosting Asian Junior Championships. Without the referendum issue, Taiwan is already de facto barred from hosting Asian badminton event except junior events. A ban was even considered if the referendum passed.
  9. Please, FAI even held one event in Northern Cyprus lol

    Football 2018 Discussion Thread

    Let me present: The dumbest Football Association president ever I hereby challenge other FIFA members to challenge him in term of stupidity Background: Indonesia failed to reach the knockout stage of Southeast Asian Championships (AFF Cup), the new coach claimed his responsibility and intended to resign from his post. When the president was asked about the AFF failure, this bald dumb man called Edy (who is also a Governor in my parents' province of origin and also a director of a League club) just said a bunch of nonsense". Transcription: Journalist: "The national team failed in AFF, what will the association do in the future, any evaluations?" Edy: "Journalist must behave... So the team can get good results" Journalist: "What measures will be taken for the next tournament?" Edy: "The next step from the association is... Kompas (a media group where he walked out from live TV interview) journalists must behave"

    Sports Budgets in your Nation

    That's why some athletes and coaches began to voicing their concern.. How come you prepare the athletes win 2 Olympic golds with 45% less budget than the one used for Asian level competition?

    Sports Budgets in your Nation

    After the Asian Games, our sport budget next year will be reduced from USD 100 million to USD 55,7 million. And still we never know where it goes. While football and badminton will barely affected by this, I was concerned about the other sports which are planning to go to Olympic qualifying tournaments...
