    The thing about the matches between the teams that actually got disqualified was that the result really only affected the teams themselves, the other throwdown that was discussed was worse imop as it actually affected which teams got trough to the elimination draw.



    I very much doubt that it would have been like 21-3.. If the koreanse led by lets say 11-2, then the Chineese could go all out up to 8-10, if possible, without risking to win, to make the game "look" competetive. So there is no need for them to throw down such oviosu, easy points if the oppnents are playng all out!!


    Who are you kidding? Japan was the first team to throw the game and would not have faced Canada in the semi if they had not thrown away their lead in group B.
    RE: Korea efforts - Fine, China has the ability to control the outcome, but both teams shot themselves in the foot by being poor actors. Case closed. Did they get what they deserved? There's a debate there still. But with the IOC pressure, it is what it is. Case closed on that matter.

    As for Japan throwing their game vs Taiwan, I didn't see that match, so I cannot argue. All I know is the Canadians won the 2nd game and freak them out tonight! You can hear the distress in their shouts to each other on the court when Michelle and Alex made a threatening shot that led to a winner.

    They flipped the finger, and you know it. They wanted to place 2nd, fine, the way they chose to accomplish that goal is an insult to everything they stand for as the elite of the sport.

    Example from another sport : Yeah, it's not OG sport, they were found guilty and it was called match fixing

    The only reason I even knew about this was because at that time a Msian player claimed she was ordered to lose by a high level official, she refused and mentioned this case.
    Not sure if there are other similar examples, ones that didnt involve bribing that is
