If it is ok for a player who have won game 1 to 'take a breather' (meaning not playing maximum) in game 2, then play maximum again in game 3.... then....
It is ok for one of those WD pair who have qualified to play in the quarterfinals, to not play to their maximum ability in one match that will not affect their eligibility to play in the quarterfinals... just for the simple reason of 'conserving energy' for the next challenge...
I conserve energy all the time in game 2 [after I have won game 1] since I'm not very fit... I will give it all in game 3........ should I be disqualified for 'not playing to the maximum of my ability' in game 2?

morally and ethically, yea its ****. but basing it on skill and technique, the games would have been much more interesting.

from Yu Yang's blog:
而对于世界羽联的这一次判罚，于洋给出回应，他表示这是自己的最后一次比赛，并表示即将告别世界羽联和 自己挚爱的羽毛球，于洋坚持表示：“我们只是受伤，选择利用规则放弃比赛是为了淘汰赛。”并反问世界羽联： “运动员的伤病你们懂吗？辛苦的带着伤病备战了四年说取消就取消我们的参赛资格。你们无情的打碎了我们的梦 想。”
rough translation of what she said:
"we are throwing away group match to prepare for the elimination due to injury." to ask BWF: "do you understand player's injuries? we carry injuries to play badminton for 4 yrs. now you simply just disqualified us. your heartlessness shattered our dreams"

omg Korean Pairs are soo stupid HAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAHHA
once they noticed that the chinese WANTED to lose, and the chinese WERE BEHIND in score, they shouldve have immedialtely STOPPED their intention to lose as well, and start playing seriously , because THEN, the score would be like 21-0 or 21-1 and the korean would NEVER have been disqualified....
As far as the second Korean WD is concerned, they KNEW EXACTLY which outcome would result in which QF-Matchup, as it was THE LAST WD MATCH of the match. They shoould have KNOWN, that only IF THEY WIN, they would AVOID an all Korean quaterfinal
IF THEY HAD LOST ( They WANTED to lose, why they wanted to lose is beyond me.. )
They match up would have looked like that :
Korean Players are SOOOOOO stupid , can someone tell me why they tried to force a Korea vs Korea QF ???
the only thing they do since they were born is train, resulting in a lack of brain.
if they hadnt tried to lose, BOTH PAIRS would have been still in the competition + The hot Favourite and biggest threak Yu/wang wouldve been disqualified.......
Koreans DESERVE TO BE DISQUALIFIED DUE TO STUPDITY

If BWF had kept quiet and allowed this fiasco to happen unpunished, the matter may be brought up to the attention of the IOC later. Then BWF will be hard pressed to provide a good answer.

I agree with Krisna, I think the WBF/IOC is concerned about its image. Fans were not happy and news of the match throwing was hitting news everywhere. They realised that they royally messed up the setup of the tournament and deflected the heat towards the players by DQing them. Its not about their image or fans, its about the athletes who wait 4 years for this opportunity. The Olympics is becoming too corporate and money driven, its disgusting.
In my opinion, the olympics are to showcase the best talent. You can argue that the 4 teams didn't, but now that you DQ them, we now have a bunch of noobs (great players compared to you and I, but lets face it, noobs compared to the top players) in the most important part of the tourny. Who cares about round robin....no one.

Well said, I did not like this round robin group play at all. If thay want more counties to participate make a bigger draw of 32 instead of 16 pairs for doubles. Singles was even worst (groups of 2 and 3). Whay give top seeds less matches or in other words more rest.

China has been doing this for years, due to an embarrassment of riches in the form of having many high ranked players. Well, well, well...
Earlier we had qualify and disqualify. Now we may have requalify.

I'm asking me what will be the attitude of LD and CJ if they meet win semis and LCW is in final. Wille they do the same opera as in 2008?
And the same fore WX and XL if WY doesn't reach the final in WS.

how they perform won't make big difference through i think, for some of you guys already sure they are fixed, aren't you? so let's just face it when it really comes.
