    What really happened? I missed the yellow card and was watching it when the match was almost over.

    Bodin Issara was clearly injured and yet they were cautioned for not trying hard enough! Stupid decision.

    I went to watch after reading your post #473 but was too late and missed it. Only saw the THA players hitting the shuttle out and into the net. What happened? I know that both pairs are already out of the competition.

    the Thai pair didn't do their best.

    I wonder why they didn't withdraw like everyone else. this is interesting.

    Because you don't get your ranking points if you withdraw I think (cause its group play)

    yea, the Thai pair didn't use their best effort to win.

    But it's not clear why they didn't withdraw like everyone else had. Maybe BWF won't let them withdraw because of pressure from sponsors and TV broadcasters!!!

    Thanks. Maybe some lesson can be learned from this episode by BWF.

    No, just the Thai pair didn't use their best effort.

    But, i don't think it's a case of "clearly abusive or detrimental to the sport".

    They could have gotten tournament doctor to check &retired halfway thru. Did the Thais have their coach with them or at least a senior to guide them?

    I guessed it. Since the outcome was academic and both pairs didn't feel like playing and, to make matters worse, Issara was injured, so the Thai MD pair was shown the yellow card for not putting in their best effort? Should have allowed the Thai pair to withdraw or retire before this match, to save the embarrassment and spectacle.

    the silly thing is, as LD_rules mentioned there are about 6000 points and 3000 USD on offer if they finish last rather than withdrawn.
    similar as LCW, turn up play 1 match and pick up 3000 USD instead of -5000 USD!

    so, bwf tried the carrots and stick both didn't work, what to do next?

    The thing that's worse is that Jongjit and Issara could still beat most forumers under 10 with their injury!
