    That's so embarassed for badminton. They have the chance to promote this sport at the olympic game and what they did. they show the shadow side from badminton. That's the negativ side, when you play for a country. If you play for you like in tennis(you may have a personal coach or a personal staff), you have one rule and it's: Fight to win.

    Perhaps those who argue that other sports also do the same "strategy", there are sports which dont. This has been posted before in other match-fixing/throwing games discussions :
    http://www.couriermail.com.au/sport/...rom=public_rss
    http://www.thestar.com/sports/articl...s-lawn-bowling
    Lawn bowling : New Zealand was found guilty of deliberately losing to Thailand for better draw the next round. The captain was banned for 6 months, other team members I think less, forgot the no of months. As for proof, the association decided the multiple champion couldnt be missing the target by so much, so many times. Funniest thing, the complaint was made by Canada.

    And yeah, they called it match fixing. Due to the strictness of the Lawn Bowling Association, a Msian player claimed she was ordered to throw a match/to lose or be booted out of the national team. She refused, won the match, got booted out of the team, made her complaint along with a few other team mates. She was later reinstated to the team
    One of the things she said was if she threw the match & anyone lodge a complaint she will face banning/suspension, reputation tarnished like the NZ case.

    firstly we would like to apologies to all badminton fans that we didn't played to my best in the match.
    this is the first time that we play group matches in such a big t'ment.
    after we won our two previous matches and qualified we thought we could take it easy (a lame excuse IMHO).
    we promise that we will play our best from now on.
    That was from YY so assuming the review was before they knew about the disqualification.
    But their body languages said otherwise!?

    Chinese players usually don't comment on these things, let alone apologizing for it. esp LYB who also apologized for "his players". it was an order from higher up in the Chinese contingent who made them do it.

    in the just finished table tennis the commentators have nothing but good to say about the sportsmanship of the two top Chinese players.
    i'm afraid it's really the leadership of China's badminton that causing the problems.
    may be it's about time for Li Yongbo to go no matter how good of his record.

    Good one Lin Dan. Like you haven't "thrown" a match in the past. What a joke. Here's hoping Lee Chong Wei can win Olympic Gold and save badminton.
    I believe the games that he has thrown are more than the games i have ever played. LD do not deserve to talk about spirit! pui!!!!!!!!!!!

    Several people, including employees of the federation, have said concerns about the format had been raised long before the Games. The British badminton player Gail Emms, who won silver in the mixed doubles at the 2004 Games, said: "As soon as I heard about the group stage six or seven months ago, I went: 'That's going to see people trying to fix the draw.' I knew it could happen.
    many people already predict 'something' could happen, the organizers didn't put much effort trying to minimize it, and when it finally happen, throw the penalty on players when they become the hero. wow!

    "It's unfair to all the players. They just wanted to be medallists for their country. It's a tactic. This is why you need straight knockouts."
    agree with statement above (who did say it, btw?). this is olympic games, and every single medals count to decide their nation's standing on the medal tally. if a team/players have opportunity to maximize their chance in medals hunt (being it avoid teammates to make chance bigger, or meet teammates to make sure one will keep going), i think most of the team/player would give it a try. afterall, the system used provided (indirectly, off course) some room for it.

    and like the 1st quote above, i think many people already realized that the group system is proved to be prone to some tactical/strategical maneuvers in it. not only in badminton, some other sports maybe also have experience with this. and if it's really the strategical thing, you can't blame them for trying. afterall, tactics or strategies are part of the game, aren't they?

    yes, what the players shown to the crowd absolutely shameful and not good. but what they did are understandable, even not 100% guilty free.

    just my opinion after read many comments on the topic.
