What do you reckon? Good for badminton world?
maybe bwf can do a little tricks like putting those big events during cbl season. That will pull them out.
Actually leagues are good for a certain sports. Just look at football for example.
certainly hope you mean china badminton super league
yes, its going to be an attraction to the top players in the world
where money is concern, just appear in the league will earn 6 digit $£€¥
taufik for one has signed
wonder who is next...
say, if lcw sign up... hmmm it would be more interesting..
between may and august lin dan, taufik, chen jin in fact all china players and lcw playing in cbsl?
imagine next year tickets sale for those bwf premier and super series seasons..oopst!
ok.. agreed. bwf is now made irrelevant... time for officials to pack their bags and go home. Maybe go to china to find work. lol. I doubt the chinese want them.
Really? Has TH signed up for the CBSL?
And when will the league be held?
no, the chinese would love to hire some english speaking guys and gals.lol
seriously, badminton could start to be like football with clubs, import of players and many $£€¥ ......
at least on a small scale
go snoop around in taufik thread and enjoy..
If it happens, that would be nice... really nice!
Imagine so many baddy players can't make a good money for living cos not everyone can participate in SS,
and not many players can win the GPG/GP or lower events.
Badminton with clubs, i say: why not?
With clubs there will be more support of the players regardless of nation
but not all pro players will be invited to play,
certain top 8 if i am not wrong
and that would be from bwf ranking.
so as to answer to the title of the thread,
i say no, csl is not killin of ss
pro players needs to stay on top of that ranking in order to be able to play in csl.
well, son just my opinion.lol
Thanks eaglehelang for the link. I found another link posted by chris-cc in another thread but it's in Chinese that I cant understand. So it is confirmed that TH will play in the CBL.
That's one of the reason why I like the league.
The league is just new, like a baby.
It will grow up and maybe some changes will be applied.
Who knows other countries will have their own league as well, then we will see something like European Champions League (in soccer). But, certainly, that's just too far.
yes, baby league now
probably when it grows bigger
then bwf ss or ps or zs will not matter
then it would be killing them off
Don't get me wrong. IT IS ok to set up clubs or a league.
BUT, lets hope that the big players still play in the big SS events so that their fans can cherish and get to see them play.
This means, not at the expense of the world league. Like football, its ok to have a league, then big players also plays in euro and world up.
Hopefully badminton like cbsl will not have such issues where players got better money there (not that bad really) and tired (pulls out of SS).
Do you get what I am getting to? That is to ask china (or those players int the league) not to be selfish.
One thing for sure, during OG qualification season (top 16 for singles, top 8 for doubles) and WC qualification(top ???), participation in SS, GP Gold will be in full swing. In between, less.
The Euro and World Cup are 4 years events, just like Thomas, Uber, Sudirman Cup (2 years events) and it is about nations, not clubs. Whereas the Champion League/UEFA cup is all about the clubs, and take place in between the countries' leagues.
Meanwhile in badminton we have the Opens: SS, GPG, GP, IC, etc (that not exist in Soccer).
It hard to compete in all, the CBSL (or might be other countries' leagues if one day they have) and the Opens, regarding the schedule.
Hope more non-national represented players can join that CBL league..
son. I think you may not understand me.
I've been playing competitive football as well as badminton. fyi. lol.
Anyway, the important thing right now is the SS and nothing else except for TC, UC and Sudirman CUP.
Am not worried about those OG, AG and bla bla bla...
My interest is to see the best to play in the biggest bwf events. So if some players giving excuse saying tired. That is a bunch offa..' you know what '.
