    I just hate it because it's inconsistent

    What can really be considered 'trying hard' or not

    In 2008 OG, nothing like this happened, China continued their foul play, Lin Dan's semi-final with Chen Jin was no different, no one was disqualified

    Never before has this happened in badminton has it? Stuff like this and match fixing has been going on for so many years now, and to suddenly make such a decision, imo, is too big a step

    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.
    Maybe he hates it and wants a 'go' at LYB

    The teams can appeal. So that means, still waiting. The way it's looking, maybe WD QF would not be played today
    They'd better not, if they still 'punya malu'. Need to save some honor here.

    IOC said, enough is enough. Maybe they kept our mails sent to them earlier and pull a big plug on them. Catch every one off guard. Good work people. Keep sending mails to IOC. Shame on BWF.

    "Reuters also quoted an International Oympic Committee official as saying the women had been disqualified but not expelled from the Games."

    what does that mean?

    Acording to wikipedia, the remaining, ahem, honest WDs make their way straight into semifinal. Is this true?

    This "award" should have been in Lin Dan's rack since a long time ago.

    Didn't the Koreans and Indonesians start playing more seriously after the warning? They should be given an second chance. But the Chinese and the other Koreans kept on playing the same way after the warning, they should be disqualified for sure.

    I agree that this is too far. First off, you're technically doing the ethical thing, and DQing the pairs are justified for the lack of show for the fans. However, what you also are doing, is taking the show away from those same fans that paid to watch the "more exciting" and "more meaningful" quarterfinals-semifinals and finals. Now, instead of superstars, they can watch Tier 2 countries go at it. How is that for ironic?

    I'm not defending their actions, but objectively, the way I see it, they did nothing wrong. It was well within their rights to play however they want. And please don't confuse this with match-fixing. There was no "fix". No one was predestined to win, and the other to lose. They BOTH wanted to lose. Besides, neither of the matches were between the same country's players, so why even bring up CHN vs CHN? It has nothing to do with this. They are both related in terms of sullying the good name of sportsmanship and competition. So yes, they are wrong in that sense. But you've never said no one could "not play hard" before. So why do it now? Why not charge Lin Dan, Taufik, Lee Choong Wei and other top players for their "first round farces" when they deliberately not try hard in a game? You know as well as I do that it won't happen. They won like they should have. So why take action now? Maybe YY/WXL etc would prevail and keep the seedings correct. You just don't have the right placing in your draw. I just think these 4 are scapegoats from BWF (big brother)'s blunder. BWF picked group play from nowhere, so BWF is to blame.
