I would totally agree with you if BWF gave the wild card to LD for slacking off. But, it's more likely they gave the wild card (in spite of LD slacking off) to promote interest (including/especially commercial interest) in this WC. It may not be a noble motive, but this is the world we live in. Money speaks. Look, I'm Malaysian and I weep for LCW every time he comes close but not quite there. But I can't dispute the fact if BWF had set out to promote more interest in the event, they did the right thing by giving a wild card to LD.
