    Although Taufiq lost phisically and skillwise to CJ during the WC final. He did one thing that may help him in the future. By accusing CJ manipulating the shuttle during the game, he successfully planted a seed in his follower's minds. Those people then spread the word all over the forum. When it is repeated so many times, it will become a topic that we need to deal with.

    Taufiq is a master of maniputation. He did it before to help him win some games. He is just too old now that his old tricks won't be enough to help him to win the game.

    Make a false accusation and try to taint another player's reputation, is that cheating?

    Oh my.......

    First : TaufiK

    Now,Taufik managed to bring the silver medal, beating no less than the world no1, please be a little more respectful with him..
    Cheat or no, Taufik or Jin, we'll never know... And the only to have any influence on it was the umpire.
    Case closed :D

    Sorry to mis-spelled Taufik's name. I wish I know how to change the title.

    The other thread is about CJ. This thread is about Taufik. It deserve a seperate thread. I just raised a thought. It is unfair that the forum is plaqued with posts that titled Is CJ cheating without any proof?

    Taufik is famous for his great badminton talent ... and his mouth.
    He knows how to play mind games...

    Delay tactics is definitely one of his repoitres, all right. Remember how he took his own sweet time against LCW to keep the strong mental pressure on him.
    I think Taufik really believed that CJ was cheating. He really seemed kind of incensed, although he could be putting on an act. Although he believed it, I do not think that CJ had the time to cheat. So, maybe misunderstanding on Taufik's part.

    I believe that you are also a master of maniputation;);).

    ThePlayer make a false accusation and try to taint a player's(Taufik) reputation, is that cheating?
    By accusing TH making false accusation, you successfully planted a seed in other BCers' minds. Those people then spread the word all over the forum. When it is repeated so many times, it will become a topic that we need to deal with.

    So should we call the police now? It needs to be deal with like thread opener suggested:rolleyes::rolleyes:.

    *****************************************************************

    On a more serious note, I think is good to discuss things in a open manner. But somehow, I think some Bcers have went overbroad in certain issues. World championship has concluded. Chen Jin didn't 'impress' me like past winners but he was crowned the WC 2010. Time to move on.

    Cannot agree more. This kind of biased discussion and hair-splitting analysis using weak evidence is not healthy.

    No, I don't think it is cheating. It is merely one of many weapons and in particular those that are psychological in nature that great players employ, provided it is not against the rules. It raises the game a level higher to be more mental. All skills with no brains can sometimes be rather dull.

    Well said the last post.

    No more to be gained in this thread as similar material is already being covered.
