    i did not say Chinese players lose their game purposely. Do not strive for it, does not mean lose purposely, there is clearly difference.

    new account means younger or less experience?
    if we are talking about MS here, the player i supported won the title, my feeling can not be better.

    To be honest, i also hope LCW can win the title, i support both LCW and LD. they are both my heros.

    will basketball be kicked out as it is dominated by USA?

    what about judo? what about taekwondo?

    a lot of sports are dominated by one country.

    If you look at the entire history of badminton at the Olympics, badminton is not dominated by China. China has only been dominated since 2008 Beijing Olympics.

    When China are willing to let go of their OG diving & table tennis gold mine, I'll believe you ;)

    can not agree with you.
    1. the second game is 22-20, which is not necessary, in order to save energy, based on your theory.
    2. the next round is Semifinal, It should be a easy win, whether it is CL or LD, no matter they play 2 or 3 games this round, no matter they face TMN or Jorgenson, does not matter.

    I have no problem with a Chinese or Indonesian or French or ... commentator being biased. as their commentary is tailored for a certain demographic.

    however, GC is commentating in English, English is a universal language which is viewed by all audience in the world. and esp when her commentary is the official BWF commentary, which means she is in a way a voice of the BWF. it is totally unacceptable that her commentary is biased.

    And also, when most of the people watching badminton matches on TV and listening to you, people believe whatever you said so commentators should speak wisely and not to take any sides.. Even BAM is complaining to BWF about the AC issue based on what she said. So the impact here is quite a big deal here. Not saying she should be fair because that will be very impossible here as nobody can really do it, for such an experienced commentators, she should know what to speak and what not to speak, speak wisely, thats all I'm saying.

    Football commentators especially in the English Premier League sometimes are quite biased in their commentaries too if you noticed. ;)

    Actually, it's a duplicate registration which is not permitted. Do you prefer the other username? You would have to give up 'madbinton845'?
