    With tennis, any funny play, the punishment is swift. Also, politics is dealt with. I remember one Arab country trying to bar an Israeli player from the tournament. That country was fined some half a million by the WTA and warned about being taken off the WTA circuit. The sport is above the country, not the other way round. That s the greatness of tennis.

    Well, now YY knows better. She had to take orders from LYB and then the rap for him. They even made sure to use her to blame BWF, just like LD spoke out to blame BWF. Would BWF still be beholden to LYB?

    I find it interesting there are people in bc who thinks what they did was right...They were murdering people in front of police station and expect police to do nothing?All others match fixing is like murder but police lack evidences to convict and this one is too obvious...

    It wasn't an analogy, it was a wisecrack.

    Look you seem to think this chick was a victim. That's complete nonsense. Maybe this will serve a lesson to others to stop screwing around with the game. I doubt it though, it always easier to blame someone else for your choices.

    seriously: who cares for a 3rd match in round robin?
    it should be absolutely obvious that these matches are played in a way to
    a. preserve energy
    b. have the best possible position for the following knockout-phase.
    so the asian doubles did the absolutely correct thing!
    the ultimate goal is to win gold, not to win the meaningless 3rd round...
    i'm european and hate the way china behaves concerning the whole walkover issue. but this time, i totally understand their behaviour!!
    the system is nonsense, every super series tournament is played ko-system. why change it here? i was almost puking when i first saw the round robin system (especially in singles, with groups of 3 and 2...!).

    it's really sad if YY really retires, she the best!

    So much hate from the guy from Taiwan LOL

    If you have the opportunity to give your team an advantage, you do it, even if that means losing on purpose. After all they put themselves in this position by winning their first two matches.

    Don't hate the player, hate the game.

    I never said they should be encouraged. That's why the system should be implemented to prevent such issues. However, if the system is biased to begin with, you have every mean to take advantage of it, when within the rule.

    Go to read the article of Brithish Rider admit to crush for a restart, and given gold at the end. This kid is being treated as a national hero / smartest stratigiest in the world at the moment. Tell me that is not taking advantage of the system.

    LYB is at fault, the BWF is at fault, and the players are at fault as well.

    everyone knows that the players are just taking orders from their head coach, who takes orders from whoever stands above him.

    YY was stuck in a Catch22 situation that's all.

    So you think the travesty they put on was good for the game. You can make a point about the rationality of losing on purpose. But, when you do it in such a manner you are going to draw attention to yourself and embarrass the games in such a manner. You can bet your a$$ the officials are going dust off what ever arcane rule they can find in order to deal with you.

    To make this point yet again. (some of you are real slow on the uptake) The second the officials came out and had a talk with the players and produced the black cards, it should have been ample warning that no matter what justification you want to come up with, continuing with this farce will very likely result in your disqualification.

    At that point its not about the morality of the players, it is about their arrogance and stupidity in not taking that very clear warning seriously.

    On the subject of the black cards though, I believe the first two pairs were never shown the black card but it was the second two pairs that got it... Yes they should've done a better job of missing and smashing into the net but what's done is done. This faulty system was put into place in the first place instead of a single elimination system which would've been much better. But instead they wanted more matches(revenue possibily) and it came back and bit BWF in the butt....

    When it started in Greece, the Olympics is about getting the best of the best to compete within Greece. Since it has become Olympics Games and gone worldwide, it means to get the best of the best from all nations to compete, within the limited participating slots available. That s why we have the IOC, international being the key word, meaning among nations. 204 nations are involved in this OG. If CHN want the best of its best to compete, they have the CHN Premiere League for Badminton. That s the place for CHN to maximise and scatter its cheat dirt. Keep it within China where the fans most appreciate and respect cheating.

    sorry you are wrong, the first two pairs (CHN and KOR) got 2 warnings with the black card
    first one from the Hongkong umpire, another one from vice president of BWF europe division (Torsten Berg, which also a member of IOC)

    Yu Yang is my least liked CHN player. After the debacle, all the other players involved kept silent, but she started off by giving excuses (injury), and when that fell flat, blamed others.

    Perhaps Ma Jin can get her successful partnership with Wang Xiaoli back, after it was "stolen" by someone.

    I suspect she is just being petulant in this "quitting" act. I won't be surprised if she can be persuaded to come back to the fold.

    I agree with this. In a BWF World Championship, they should just get all the best players, regardless of nationality. It is a badminton tournament after all.

    Olympics should be where a country's best comes out to compete against other countries' best.

    Olympics has its own ideals rooted in international solidarity (ideally), while World Championship should be all about badminton (ideally).

    The players took the command from their coaches/managers. That's the hierarchy (especially in Asia). Unless the coach gave a new order, the players would not dare change. If the officials went to warn the coaches, it may have more effect, though I doubt it, since nobody expected BWF to do anything (since they have never done anything previously).

    Just a slight tweak in the competition rules will do it.
    If only the top of the group (like in singles) qualifies for the knockout stage, every group match will count (most of the time).
