    Only $100 fine per incident? That's like $50 per player in doubles... so go ahead and deduct $100 from me and my partner's Premier event $30,000 winner's cheque! I don't mind celebrating with my coaches first.

    Sometimes fines are there to create awareness, not to create bankruptcy.

    If I'm honest, I'm not sure which rule is more ridiculous, this one, or the one that states its compulsory to have your name on the back of your shirt if you are playing in the main draw of a international challenge tournament of higher. Otherwise there is a fine imposed.

    This rule is stupid though, it's unclear and stupid. It says you can't celebrate with your coaches first (which is stupid in the first place) but then it doesn't make it clear whether you can celebrate with the crowd before hand (note it says coaches not spectators) so this rule is totally open to interpretation.

    Still you win the match, you can celebrate. In my opinion if you win a big match in a tournament it's okay to celebrate and thank your coaches/support first. You don't have to shake hands with your opponent in clear view of everyone...

    I agreed with you till I saw the Chen Long's celebration, which in my opinion was so over the top and disrespectful that I was glad when I saw LCW didn't want to shake his hand. Because of that incident, I've never really been a big fan of his.

    I understand the desire to celebrate after a big victory, but i think it's important to balance that with a level of respect to your opponent, who probably just wants to get off the court after a big loss and not stand there waiting for the winner.

    I really enjoyed the emotions and celebrations after the Olympic men's singles final, Seemed completely genuine and fitting to the occasion, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Occasions like this are good for the sport and i can't fathom where the disrespect to your opponent comes into it or how it is disrespectful. Prime example why BWF should not discourage this.
