    Maybe or maybe there was an injury...... what's your point? The second example of yours just looking like a good old fashioned Asskicking.

    This may be a glass half full situation for Yu. She now has the opportunity to play somewhere else.

    Meanwhile, check this out:
    China's head coach Li Yongbo has also issued an apology after the world number one pairing pair of Yu Yang and Wang Xiaoli were also disqualified as part of the controversy.
    Yu also went on Chinese state television to say:"First of all, I want to apologise to our fans. We didn't play with the Olympic spirit. It has reflected very badly on us."

    He has to take some responsibility.
    The coaches could have just said, "hey, stop this. It isn't right" at any of the breaks. They didn't and that's on them as well.

    I think he did the right thing to apologize to the Chineese fans for not performing the best. But it doesnt give LYB any moral points in my book. If there had been no disqualifications and China had taken Gold+Silver, my guess is that he would sing a different tune, and tell media, that he is proud of doing it to give his country both Gold and Silver medals..

    What I can't stand is the hypocracy.. But by any yardstick the biggest hypocratcy is from the Organizers, BWF and IOC in this mess!!! It is never about what you "say".. its all about what you "do" !!!

    Don't be too surprised if she's back in the team with WXL in a couple of months.

    I actually hope so. While I feel she deserved the DQ and I have no respect for her subsequent comments, I felt a little nauseated by how she has apparently been thrown under the bus by the Chinese team (assuming she was ordered to throw the match that is).
