Firstly, he doesn't need to know how well they play against each other. Important matter is how well they play against the 'others'.
Secondly, what is the point? No net gain in terms of ranking points or prize monies.
Thirdly, teammates bound to know each otherís game better and more importantly the weakness as well. Do you really want to show that to your opponents, unnecessary?
Btw, there is no 'walkover' or 'retried' from CHN as the OP's title suggested.
They call it 'abstain', both points and prize monies. Of course you only abstain/surrender to your friends, why do you want to do that to your opponents?
So, all these number of 'walkover' etc. are just waste of time.
Just remember Li Yongbo is not here to entertain but win, win and win.

This is the difference between what we BCers like and dislike.
(1) Some of us BCers like to watch/follow good matches and dislike walkover/no match/retired.
(2) Some of us BCers like to have the country they are supporting to win, no matter whether match-fixing is involved or not.
I am in category (1). Just like to watch good matches. Not really interested in which country wins.

I think I'm between 1 and 2. I would be lying if I said I don't who wins, naturally I support the country i was born (indonesia) and the ethnical background (Chinese) I have. But not to a point where I let myself blindly suppony no matter what. This WOs tactic by CHN team just simply disgusting, I can't stand it. I'm sure there are many if not most CHN followers feel the same way. But the fact that they kept winning and LYB is strongly in power, have made them closed one eye. The rest of course are still in denial.

since there is a latest walkover received,so i do one for their career since 2007
cai/fu against other country player against own country player play until finish 191 12 receive/concede retired or walkover 2 7 % 1.03% 36.84%
we can see that,in the match involve cai/fu against their own teammate,there is more than 1/3 chance it will be a walkover or retired
let see tomorrow if the well rested cai/fu can beat lee/jung or not,hehe.

Badminton will never be as successful as tennis. One of the reason is the stupidity of having this "national interest" ahead of individual achievements. China has been dominating for over decade, how much more winning does Li Yongbo need? Perpetuating this problem is that the biggest market for the sponsors is China, so the sponsors do not go against the Chinese Badminton Association, but this is at a cost of badminton players and fans from other countries. Sports is about competition, walkovers are disgraceful.

The question is not that China at the moment probably abuses the rule, the question is if it's possible to make a rule that can prevent the perceived problem without penalizing other athletes. I think at the end of the day, it is probably impossible to satisifactory create a rule that will address this problem without causing other foreseen/unforeseen problems.
