since they are from same school
we should cancel inter school competition since they are from same state
we should cancel inter state competition since they are from same country

True. Soccer fans who know their sport well can spot the acting even before the referee makes the decision. I think it's the same for Badminton; Badminton fans who know their players well also know when the players are acting.
In both cases, for entertainment purpose, the acting is fun to follow. But when wishing to watch a truly high-spirited well-fought Badminton match, I would boo at the players who have pretended/acted, especially when they gave walkovers and gave us "No Match" to watch.

The only player that always seems to try to play his best is Peter Gade! And that is why I think he is so very popular despite not getting the real big wins under his belt. Even when he faces a weaker opponent he seems to try to play the best game..And I really love this about him.. That what makes him a Real idol for many fans i think..

If it's me, no, I will not or rather dare not do it(assuming I'm just faking an injury/illness), if I get caught, bye2 to career. Whoever high powers who instructed me to do it will wash their hands & still I am wrong for doing it - forever I will called cheater. Now, if I didnt do it, that would be considered heroic
As discussed in the other threads, demoracy, invidualistic, consequences.

Whatever players have done, the truth will surface later
I like this post; Because whatever players have done, the truth will surface later - when players dare to speak out when they are no longer under their coach(es).
However, 'cheating' might be too strong a word to use. Perhaps 'match-fixing/acting' is better to be used to describe their actions.

I think twobeer's point is that let's say that you are feeling even a slight discomfort... and it might jeopardize your chances for the next match up against a stronger opponent although you could possibly defeat your current opponent, which happens to come from the same country. He suggests that the person would give a walkover to let his team-mate advance in better condition so that his team-mate has a better chance and perform better than what the person himself can do.
However, the main point is everyone carries some sort of discomfort in one place or another in any tournament. The doctors can just confirm that it is an injury (one toe? one finger?) and the person can give a walkover even for the most minor of all reasons. This is exactly what is happening now, and it doesn't help that Li Yongbo is clearly taking advantage of it.
