    See told you. But I really(x5) didnt expect the drama to outshine even the other sports, in a bad way too, sigh.

    The names of the 4 pairs are still on the Official OG site though

    So are they reinstating the third and fourth placed teams from these groups?

    I have paid 380 for 4 tickets to watch Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang play Ha Jung-Eun and Kim Min-Jung.

    Am I going to get a refund????

    I think it is disgraceful, firstly that I have paid a lot of money to watch the badminton which was advertised as 17:00 to 21:00, but is actually 17:00 to 20:00, and now they are saying not even that???????

    There are 10 matches scheduled for this evening, 2 now cancelled I assume because both teams are disqualified, so that means now that instead of 10 matches in the stadium there are only 8? And instead of 3 matches on my court, only 2. And this costs me 380?????

    Uhhhh you obviously didn't watch the match. In the first match the players were warned on court that they would be disqualified from the tournament if they carried on in the same manner. The right decision imo.

    Good riddance!The Olympic committee showing the BWF how it should be done. Now to top it off I'm hoping for some sort of ban from professional competition from the BWF (a year?) for unsportsmanlike behavior and bringing the sport into disgrace and disrepute, with significant fines to the national badminton associations of the associated countries. Hopefully this sets the precedent that if you screw around with the draw (walkovers, underhand tactics) you will get bitten. I can think of at least 10 times in the last year China has done this. A great leap forward for badminton!

    Haha.. I am so so happy. IOC did good. Shame of BWF over the years.

    Will Lin Dan and Chen Jin match be super acting?

    Politically, China can get rid of Li Yong Bo now for causing the team to loost a medal.

    They should fine the teams and force them to repay all the tickets that want to be refunded

    China's Lin Dan, the No. 2-ranked men's singles player, said through an interpreter the sport is going to be damaged.

    "Especially for the audience," he said before the disqualifications were announced. "This is definitely not within the Olympic spirit. But like I said before, it's not one-sided. Whoever sets the rule should make it knockout so whoever doesn't try will just leave the Olympics."
    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.

    its slightly harsh on the Korean pair (vs Chinese), who after being threatened with a black card actually started playing in the second game (well enough to win anyway).

    The teams can appeal. So that means, still waiting. The way it's looking, maybe WD QF would not be played today

    still appealing? These pairs should be disqualified with immediate effect without giving any chance for them to appeal. Shame on them.
