The problpem is also..many CHN players got into TOP 8 in SS Final standing as some are given WO..so it is not fair for others who fight really hard....even we often see Koreans vs Koreans, Japan vs Japan or INA vs INA plays in real games...so to complain about the rule is okay but remember some of players are given free pass for free points....some fighyts for it....

Thats why I am glad that China can offer big money to 4 Players which at that time.,.you objected it and it is actually it is a good marketing to attract more players..
Please note that in last 2 years, one of China official told me that it is hard now to get the badminton talent in China...most children will play other sports...
In the past, CBA will allow other chinese players who are not selected and go abroad..now there is no way....even for Singapore talents as well.....I heard China will not allow chinese children being recruited early by Singapore Sport Council.
Also at the same time...we need to create fan base...fan base are important for sponsors...thats the keys...
Also the reason why SS Final prize money is not much yet as BWF has hard time to find the sponsor..they are talking to few companies to sponsor SS Final regularly like 3 yrs contract for example...
There will be more tournaments in Asia..Macau and Taipei Open are GOLD GP but the prize money is US$ 200 K ( similar to Super Series) and I think it is time for BWF to allow extra tournaments for countries who can afford...Beleive me that there will less tournaments in Europe in future..and more tournaments in South and North America but they need talents..recently PBSI allows some to move to these regions and I hope China/Mas or Korea will allow some of their players to this region...
thats my 22 cents ( not 2 cents)

Anyway...in order to help badminton..the fans love seeing the fight..not WO....if you want to build the fans and sponsors so the sport can benefit!!

I remember a Jesuit saying goes:
“Give me a child until he is six, and I will give you a rock-solid follower for life.”
What's the point for China to donate such talents?

An injured player that Walks Over will get not ranking points so it will hurt that player and team, regardless of country of origin.

Who said that injured players who gives WO will not get the ranking points??? If one player WO...he or she does get the ranking points and money.....
