This rule is really stupid because it is not serious enough
Agree... I find that BWF to give out yellow card to player for not doing the handshake with opponent immediately after the match is really stupid, IMHO.
If BWF is serious about this matter, the player should be banned for live.
This is the only way to enforce the rule:
Do it, or don't play Badminton at all.

If BWF is serious about enforcing politeness, they should punish people who do a LIN-dance (or taking off their shirts) immediately after victory instead of punishing people who thank their coaches before shaking hands with opponents...

For me, BWF are still not strict enough about what their protocol......
I also see that players are thanking their coaches first before shaking hands with their opponents.
But, in Badminton, our BWF (as our international governing body) must decide what protocol Badminton players should follow.
Here, we are talking about how BWF wish to conduct our Badminton players' etiquette of diplomacy and affairs.
In Soccer, players celebrate with their coaches, teammates (from the bench) and team supporters first, before they shake hands with their opponents.
In Judo, participants don't even shake hands, they bow to their opponents.
In Tennis, players thank their opponents first, then the umpire before they they thank their coaches and supporters.
etc, etc, ......
What I see is BWF is wishing to follow the same protocol as for Tennis.
Firstly, we find that BWF will impose a fine $100 to players for celebrating with coaches and teammates first. It didn't work, did it?.
Now, we find that BWF will give a yellow card to players for not shaking hands with their opponents first at the end of the match.
All these fines and yellow cards are not a serious enough (for how BWF wish to conduct the protocol for Badminton players to follow).
I am a coach. I don't mind players celebrating with me first before they shake hands with their opponents (even if I were to be paying the $100 fine for the players).
Now, BWF is mentioning about issuing the yellow card.
For me, BWF are still not strict enough about what protocol they wish for our players to follow.

^^ so this yellow card at the end of the match, does it carry over to the next match?
if not, then it's only a formality just for show...

Hmm, I don't think I have read anywhere stating that there is a yellow card to be given, only a fine. Will someone please point out where it says a yellow must be given?
And cards do not carry over, but umpires must write a note and what not to the referee and after a few collection of yellow cards, there will be fines.

Hmm, I don't see anywhere where it says a yellow must be given. But it would be reported for a $100 fine.
Maybe unless its very excessive such as Chen Long running around the gym first, then I'll think about pulling that card.
"However if a player consistently takes off his shirt to celebrate every time they win a match and after being told not to by the Referee then a Referee can take action under Players Code of Conduct 4.16 Unsportsmanlike Conduct."
I would imagine a player to take off their shirt only if they win the championship and usually not after every single match they won.

uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhh a 100$ fine and/or a yellow card would definitely keep me from jumping around, putting my shirt off and celebrating with my coach after having won the WC or olympics...!

Hang on, it only says celebrating with coaches, it doesn't say I can't drop to my knees, throw my top into the crowd and then shake hands...

So I don't think you can toss your shirt into the crowd either.
I wouldn't mind if they drop to the knees, toss their racket up, then go shake

What protocol Badminton players should follow?
02-20-2012, 08:58 PM #30
With regards to respecting your opponent - Nobody celebrates massively if they have expected to win hence celebrating is showing respect to your opponent,
02-21-2012, 01:25 AM #31
I think they should change it to, some celebration is okay, but don't do it excessively as in run around the gym. You should be allowed to drop to the floor, take off your shirt, hug you coach then shake hands with your opponent.
Celebrating with the crowd and everything can come afterwards.

LD and LCW took off their shirts after the match. Should they both be given yellow cards?
