2. I actually think BWF rules penalise teams with strong depth. Isn't it easier to just allow all the top players to enter, without the limiting rules? But I understand that BWF has to conform to certain Olympic guidelines as well.
3. I also dislike walkovers / fixed games, but these are extremely hard to prove.

Have to double check if that is 100% accurate ... (maybe it is even the other way around, but what is certain is that there were separate events before)
Let me get some dinner first so I can think straight ...

2. Olympics have general guidelines for every sport, including number of participants etc, which bwf must confirm to. Unlike world championship, where bwf can basically impose any rule.
3. Agreed, but deliberate walkovers are hard to prove.

But deliberate ignorant or under table money launderers organisations are easily to identify.
Doing in daylight robbery. Right in-front of your face. Thinking people are blind. lol

I thought the Badminton Asian Championships were cancelled this year, and the replacement points will come from this qualifying tournament?

2012 Asian Teams Championships
Thanks cxytdn for confirming it.
This shows a few things that BAC may be surprised;
* Why is CHN not sending their best Womens Team?
* Why is KOR not sending a Womens Team at all?
* Why is CHN not sending their best Mens Team?
I think the National Associations in Asia considered this event more as the 2012 Thomas Cup and Uber Cup Qualifying Rounds (as staged by the BWF), than the 2012 Asian Teams Championships (as staged by the BAC).
Or, is it because National Associations in Asia are now no longer interested to be Asian Teams Champions anymore?

It seems PBSI also not happy about this :
INDONESIA have strongly opposed Badminton World Federation's (BWF) decision to allow holders China to play in the ongoing Thomas Cup and Uber Cup qualifying rounds and also making the events as tournaments offering Olympic qualifying points.[/h] Team manager Mohamad Faryansyah said this is something BWF should not have done and warned that badminton may be dropped from the Olympics if the world body fails to control China.
Faryansyah said not only did BWF allow China to compete although they have qualified automatically for the events but the annual Asian Badminton Championships, which is normally the last Olympic qualifying event, has also been cancelled.
The Thomas Cup and Uber Cup qualifiers have been regarded as the Asian Championships although they are individual championships.
He added that BA of Indonesia (PBSI) did send a letter of protest but the effort has been in vain.
"BWF should not have allowed China to play here (in Macau) and it doesn't make sense for the Asian Championships to be cancelled because that is an individual championships," said Faryansyah.
"European team championships have been recognised as their continent's qualifiers for the Thomas Cup and Uber Cup and their individual event is being held separately, so I don't see why the Asian Championships has to be cancelled.
"BWF has bowed to China's pressure and allowed them to play in the qualifying rounds just because it is an Olympic qualifying event.
"China will still play in the final rounds no matter what happens here but their presence has only made things worse. Teams will try to avoid playing China in the knockout stage and will not play in the spirit of the game.
"China are here only because the players will gain world ranking points which is 10 per cent of their total individual points.
"They want maximum representation in the Olympics and are using any loophole in the rules and regulations of BWF to achieve their aim.
"If China is not controlled, the sport is in danger of being dropped from the Olympics."
The onus is on BWF to put a halt to China's motives and a review of the current Olympic qualification process must be conducted to safeguard badminton's future in the Olympic Games.

At least Malaysia's BAM and its players won't mind about this because they are only in mind of eager to qualify for Finals so badly...

Exactly.....so what's the purpose of "qualifying rounds"?? When even if you failed to qualify in the "qualifying round" you still qualify. Does not make sense at all to me. Its just fundamentally against the very mean of having a "qualifying round". I wonder if it ever happens in other sports, or is it just BWF so d**b??
