What do you consider major? Olympics? WC? SS? GPG? Any international title?

I know that for the chinese players, and public alike, the team competition (uber, thomas and surdiman cups) are much more important then the all england or any other open. I would guess the same is true for malaysians and indonisians.

Titles (majors) to win IF you want to be reagrded as a "hero" IN MY BOOKS :
1) THOMAS / UBER CUP (if you are Malaysian, Indonesian, Korean or Chinese badminton fans)
2) Olympics GOLD (silver, etc don't count !!)
4) World Championship
Everything is else is just for the "pocket money" ... something LCW is very good at ....
Like Lionel Messi, he can win 100 BALLONS, 100 La Ligas, etc ... NO WORLD CUP, he is a "dud" when compared to Pele, Maradona, Mueller ... !!!

Majors are the ones no players want to miss, for example, this year Korean do not count because Lin dan was no where to be found.

I'm with you more or less. Except that I won't be so harsh on Messi - how is he going to win the World Cup when he has to depend on the other 10 teammates to perform together as well?

the fact is you can't make it a major just by adding 'Premier' in the name!

I would think that the list goes:
2. Asian games (Asia only)
2. World Championships
3. All England
4. Thomas/Uber/Sudirman Cup (Unless you are Chinese, this would be 3.)
Perhaps for Europeans the European title may go in 3 or 4.
I would consider the Olympics/Asian Games/World Championships to be the "MAJOR" titles. All England is simply a special super series event in my opinion. "All England" champion just doesn't have the same feel as "World Champion".
As far as players go.. Lee Chong Wei, Jung Jae Sung, Carsten Mogensen.. can't think of any more at the moment. Only players who haven't won the Olympics/AG/WC and have been of World #1 quality for an extended period of time should make it to the list.
