    Default Racket abuse warning?

    The most stupid thing ive ever heard ( only just heard about it now and found out it has been a rule for quite a while )

    So what if M.Boe smashed his racket on the floor when he was angry and destroyed it, it doesnt affect the game in any way

    This rule doesn't exist because such behaviour distracts other players. It's more like a bad image on badminton if people start running around smashing their rackets.

    If someone starts having a hissy fit, it does distract the opponent. It delays the game. It is disrespectful to the officials, mortifying to the audience, and generally degrading to the player himself.
    Bad behaviour should always have consequences.

    In sport the professional's behaviour often sets the standard for what's acceptable in the amateur game. Do you really want to see people throwing their rackets in league play and club nights?

    agreed

    It delays the game.
    Gasp!! Delays the game??? Well then it's a good thing we punish this. Imagine if players in Badminton were allowed to constantly delay the game!! (Go ahead imagine it.... it's not that hard actually)


    It is disrespectful to the officials, mortifying to the audience, and generally degrading to the player himself.
    Hmm, disrespectful to the officials? I don't really see that. As a member of the audience watching numerous incidents where a player smashed his racquet I have a hard time believing anyone in the audience would feel mortified. And if they did, then I suspect they have bigger mental issues than the player in question. You do know the meaning of 'mortified' right? Degrading? wow you certainly like to use strong vocabulary don't you? I have a hard time describing any such player as degraded.

    Bad behaviour should always have consequences.
    Absolutely, I actually don't have a problem with warnings for any of the minor offences in badminton. By far the biggest issue I have with them is the arbitrary way in which some of these minor rules in badminton are enforced.

    Seriously? You've never seen anyone throw their racquet to the ground? Lucky you. Granted I don't see it often but, it does happen.

    Hey this topic reminds me. Does anyone here remember what Lin Dan received for throwing his racquet at that Korean (if I remember correctly) coach?

    That's like an American football player throwing his helmet down in frustration. He'll get an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.


    That's what it is, an unsportsmanlike conduct. If the racket breaks, I'm going straight for the red card, if it's repeated, I will call the referee over to monitor and a black card may be given if his temper hasn't cooled. It shows that you have a temper and that's not is what's supposed to happen.

    You can also get yellow carded for tossing your racket up high and catching it. It is dangerous and usually is done when someone loses a point.

    Also, I reember Fischer-Nielsen tossed his racket up (not super high) and let it drop to the ground cause he was upset with the line judge's call. He was immediately given a yellow.

    That's what I mean by enforcement. One would think that an action that could get you arrested would cost you the match.

    Sorry for double posting,

    but even if the referee didn't give him the black card for that, I would have gone, Lin Dan, come here, fault for misconduct. Game. Match won by Hyun-il Lee 23-21. End of story.
