    1 Datuk does not matter for lin dan as he is chinese not malaysian..
    2 lin dan has been wrld number 1 for many years and he can easily win it back by winning the upcoming tournies
    3 olympics champion is much greater than world number 1, throughout the year any year you can get to world number 1 but olympics is only once every 4th year.
    think man...

    I agree. Olympic champion is greater than other title.

    LD won that Gold medal bcos of help from CJ. (Just watch them play in the semis). But nobody help LCW. He won it (although silver) himself.

    Dont involve yourself in the Match-Fixing Arrangement if you really want people to respect u as the 2008 BEIJING OLYMPIC BADMINTON MAN SINGLE'S GOLD MEDAL WINNER.

    That's why BWF should have some form of control on this to make it fair and square for everyone. If there are players of the same country playing each other in the semis, just boot one out and let another player from another country to take part in the semis. It is already a fact and everyone seems to be keeping a blind eye or denial on this.;)

    Else allowing this to happen will kill the game and the respect for players like LD to win big tournament is not there. If this is truly a professional sports, then so be it because the stakes are high and the reward is just too good to let go.

    So, BWF need to find a solution to this issue. Perhaps the price money for the booted out semifinalist should go to him (or 80-90%). And the replacement should be entitled to finals rewards; and if he looses, then he should get the qtrfinal and perhaps some percentage of semis share (like 10-20%); just for effort and participating sake.

    Hence this eliminates any unfairness towards a country and good for the game. Anyone second this? Who's the petition king here?;) Closing ones eye will impair its credibility.

    Smell sour apple...

    Don't think this is fair statement... though seen this kinds of excuse many times in the forum, but still like to object to it... cause this would not help LCW's fans to mature, but nourish their habit for looking for excuse like a girl...

    hasn't other players include LCW met players of his own country in competitions? could this automatically wipe out the credibility of his subquent victories in the tournament just because he won his own countryman for good?

    a win is a win, LD beat LCW to get the gold, LCW lost to LD to get the silver. That's it. No one held LD in the final game...

    stand up and face the defeat like a man, work harder and try to beat LD to win a major title like WC. This is the right attitude of a sports' player.

    although i can sense an argument will start on this i hope that its not to to big or anything. personally if i was in a tournament and regardless if there was match fixing or not for my country id be pretty pissed that i get kicked out of semis for that. like i dont think that is a good thing to do at all booting one out and puting in somebody else the player that made it to semies well they made it their they beat out the other person.

    its like at national tournaments when i end up playing somebody from the same province or city as me its like saying oh you 2 are from the same province or city so were going to boot one of you out and let somebody from some other province/city take your place like no that wouldnt be fair or right at all. i would be pretty mad about that if it happened. same concept just on a smaller scale.

    i can see where your comming from yes about how its all planned out already 1 of them will lose to the other on purpose or not so this woudl solve it and would give others a chance to expirence getting to semis but then they would also get more points than they otherwise wouldnt and that isnt fair so yeah, but this solution personally i feel isnt the way to go.

    as per back to the topic LCW only has about 1500 more points and that can easily be made up by lin dan by winning one tournament.

    CHN is arranging the match result. And they always practise it. Would you deny on this open secret?

    I feel sick because not of the defeat of LCW's in the final against the ''champion'' LD, it's bcos of the Match Fixing Arrangement by CHN. (I bet u didnt watch that game - LD VS. CJ in the semis)

    Be a professional player, play professionally.

    As LCW's fan, i am very proud of his success in Olympic. (except the Datuk-ship) He play like a man. He fight like a man, a true professional badminton player.

    LD and other CHN player? MATCH FIXING ARRANGEMENT.

    They are Badminton sport's MAFIA!!

    I believe ethics is the most important element in a professional athlete, including a badminton player. IMHO, world ranking is just to tell everyone how many titles have you won, and not how good you are as an OVERALL BADMINTON PLAYER. The word OVERALL includes your spirit in court, your ethics etc, and not only your skills.

    Similarly, LCW is now world no. 1 because he participated in more tournaments compared to LD. It doesn't really mean much IMHO.

    However, previously when LD is ranked world no. 1, I too don't feel that he is the BEST player in the world due to his attitude (just my personal opinion, don't fire me please ^^).
