happens all the time in team sports, it's just that it's not as obvious
and this would be considered smart tactics on the part of the coaches

The guy was suspended from international football for life, others left unscathed. No disqualification, no punishments for the two nations involved.

the little piece of commentary writing by Anna Rice is interesting. just shows how unprepared the planner for the scheduling was for this version of round robin format..

Watching the Athletics and Michael Johnson (Olympic Champion and World Record Holder) just said about one of the heats:
"you just want to do enough, and conserve as much energy as you can, there's no point in using energy you don't have to"
Surely this athlete should now be disqualified, they're no longer using there best efforts!
Surely Usain Bolt should have been DQ'd from the 100M final in Beijing as he didn't use his best efforts for the full race?

players are the one who stab the knife and hand full of blood but the coaches are the one who instructed them...
but nobody see that further more the players has to final choice not to follow order.
I dont see why I need to rob a bank if my boss asked me to, I know it wrong and I will lose my job.

rob a bank is criminal thing, and definitely wrong to do. but tactically 'choose' your opponent to open your chance on winning the title is strategical thing. and strategy or tactics should be part of some games if not all i think? afterall, the format being used itself is prone to strategical acts.
i agree that what the players did is really a shameful and disrespectful act to the crowds and spectators, but the reason they did it still understandable. people can blame them for showing such playing in front of full crowd, but to blamed them for cheating and other harsh reason, i don't know.

Conserving energy and deliberately/purposely losing is a different matter. Running is not a good example, look up lawn bowling.
Football or other team sports also happen,yes, but harder to prove. A reserve player and a main player playing are 2 different persons, different standards of play. BUT... if there is evidence or someone comes forward....
Badminton is individual sports(except for team events), same person playing, how to justify playing like beginner when one is World CHampion, World ranking top 10. Other sports do it doesnt make it right, just means it's harder to prove.

It is the opposite. Maybe they are afraid London spectator would riot if nothing is being done. In Singapore Open, Lin Dan got away without anyone throwing a single bottle because the spectators are afraid of the authority

Actually the choice # 4 ď both players and BWF are to be blamed ď no need to be in the list as to distinguish within players & BWF to be blame most (root cause), then the coach escape behind the scape-G (players),
Donít forget last time during the line call saga by the disgraceful linesmen BWF keep on sleeping as it happen until Lin Dan being a victim. BWF let it happen like nobody business and they wait until paranoid level.They just sleeping like nobody business when certain country keep on practicing it.
Why not get the statistic which country practice it most. Oops..!! somebody so shy to mention. So hide it.(nice culture)
More disgusting a coach demand his players for apology as he is the maestro of this disgrace culture and use a players as the curtain to hide his.....what ah..?? And yet BWF using round robin which is as good as mouse trap at weird timing to take action where the earlier country which do it just escape freely. To me players is a victim.
For match fixing, BWF has been sleeping for so looong like nobody business. If thereís no sense of the root cause, thereís no solution can be solved.
Or let pretend that we all donít know the main cause, and problem solved..???
