    AE is just another SS event. The biggest events are: Olympics and Worlds, SC,TC and UC, Asian Games, then SS. The Korean Open SS is the biggest SS event as currently it more than doubles the prize money at most other SS.

    LD has , what, 1 Olym, 3 worlds, 4 TC, 4SC, 1 Asian Games Indiv. and thats just the wins.

    Its pointless comparing across eras but in the last decade when there have been many great and innovative players and top players from more countries than ever before he LD has domiated. If you add up the wins of every other player at the biggest events where he has competed the other players cannot match his wins.

    Currently there is a transition, where as in the past there were 5 players pushing the number one currently there are just 2 clear top players. Veterans like Bao Chunlai, Taufik, Gade, are declinng, and even LD and LCW may retire.

    I think OTB hit the nail on the head here. I've enjoyed watching badminton for as long as I can remember (over 35 years), and I can't remember seeing a player with the defensive qualities of a LCW, or the attacking style of a LD. These two players are ahead of the rest in the modern game and are great athletes to boot. To quote Morten Frost during one of his 2011 Sudirman Cup commentaries, "There is LCW and LD, and then there's the rest." For sheer viewing pleasure and appreciating the fine aspects of the game be it footwork, defense, consistency, or attack, nothing beats watching these two top players. And yes, before you ask I have watched the Hartonos, Zhiao Jianhuas, Morten Frosts, Peter Gades, Taufiks, etc of the world, so don't bother asking. :) Comparing the number of titles won sounds too much like an infantile pissing contest and takes away from appreciating the beauty of the game which these two players hand out by the bucket loads. And they will be missed when they retire.

    Last I deduce from other posts from other threads, he has returned with another screen name. But don't worry, all of the same kind will appear in two weeks' time. Be patient. 15 days to be exact.
