    The media is definitely making a big fuzz about out of this , it happens in other sport as well when you have group stage (playing at different time) . If it was a lesser badminton nation involve , it would not be a big issue but since it is china ,S.Korea, who both are also topping in the overall Olympic medals, the news spread like wildfire.

    Anyway good luck to Bruce-Li in their semis , they played well today and deserve to be in a Gold/silver medal chance

    Yup, right decision for players who don't appreciate sportsmanship. They got what they done, disqualified from Olympic Games.

    Oh, definitely. With YY/WYL out, WD is wide open but ZYL/TQ has as good or better odds of winning. Only concern is ZYL playing XD and if she makes to both, how would she fare in the final, playing 2 matches same night?

    before i went to sleep last night, the appealing process was still ongoing. This morning, I checked, the appeals filed by both teams had been declined. That's a wise decision made by them this time. I am wondering are the playera crying now.

    This is a say day for badminton... Top seeds who put on such great shows and worked so hard for this day all of the past 4 years were treated like dirt. Who are the ones who gave badminton fans something to cheer about? first time the top seeds had to do it themselves so as to avoid meeting before the finals. BWF is a joke. Whats is so wrong with the system these past 4 years? Asians dominating the sport? ....... Sad news, read that Yuyang might have decided to quite badminton for good.... Crushing a 4 year dream in such fashion is scandalous.... Moreover, these 8 are the ones with a right to call the gold medal theirs.

    I feel sorry for all of them they must be absolutely gothic, everyone have been working hard in the past 4 years they gave averything train hard, some injuries but in the end they have to walk away not because they've beaten by their opponents and is so sad, i blame BWF for this, they should noticed this in the first game between chinese and Koreans even before the game they shoul gathered everyone from WD department and warn them if they trying to lose they will be disqualified righ away that's Gail Emma said, they already warn bwf about this after QT/ZL lost to Padersen/Juhl, be we all know BWF is so lame

    Please take a look at the rankings. All because of one match? Who in the 1st place will group the top 2 in such they might end up on the same side of the draw? This is ridiculous. Such great players being maginalised.....By using a point system, which rule states that you cant take it easy? This all started from BWF, why change now? Looking at the field of players remaining... its a joke.

    I think there's a difference between 'taking it easy' and 'trying (hard) to lose'.
