    Yup, if you're right, I can well imagine Lee CW's dismay at having to play not only DuPY or WZM but possibly Lin Dan as well in his half of the draw.

    Maybe the press misinterpreted what LCW said but if that's what he actually said, I would be quite dissapointed as to me, he has a very humble n good image but now this? Honestly, he needs to learn some skills in speaking to the press like how LD handles it especially he has followers all over the world. He needs to know what to speak, when to speak and how to speak according to the situation. I believe LD will not say the same thing he is at LCW's position. Remember what LD said during TC before OG12? He wishes LCW for a quick recovery and he hoped that they can meet in the finals. Of course, its a different situation now but what is done is done, BWF decided to give LD the wild card which, to many people, its very unfair as LD did not try hard enough to earn himself a spot through merit. The least LCW could do is be generous about it or at least act to be generous in front of the world, he can go home n cry, scream in his pillow, punch his teddy n do all he wants to let go of his frustration. Then if they get a chance to meet in WC, beat him with his own ability, show the world that a wild card does not mean anything. Let the racquet do the talking like everyone here said!

    How about asking the organizer of the last BAC at Taipei on how they feel about having Lin Dan's participation in that event? For that matter,ask BWF too, who probably knew better now.

    Simply put, if it were Lee CW, I'm damn sure BWF would have done the same for him; I for one will clamour for it. Isn't it good that such a positive precedent has been set?

    To put it bluntly, BWF and the badminton world at large have much more to gain than Lin Dan for whom it can be seen as a small token of appreciation for all that he's contributed to the sport. Fairness is not an issue here and, pardon me for saying this, to continue to harp on it in this vein smacks of prejudice, narrow-mindedness and even moral hypocrisy.

    World No. 1 Chong Wei was not pleased the decision, describing it as “unfair.”“How can BWF give another slot to China when they already have three players in the fray,” said Chong Wei.Would it not made more sense to give the wild card to a country who have no representative in the world championships?“A player can stay away for eight months and still be considered for the world championships! What about the others who have worked hard to qualify for the event.“He is one of the players, who had conceded walkovers and turned his back on BWF’s tournaments many times. Yet, he is rewarded with a wild card.“I do not know what to say about BWF’s rules and regulations any more.
    i really wish people check the facts before they open their mouths.

    bwf's rule is clear as they entitled to nominate a wild card entry for each of the 5 events. if bwf decided not to nominate a wild card then the player at the top of the reserve list will get lucky, not the other way round as the 'wild card' robbed the ticket of one already qualified.

    “Rather than qualifying, I should have waited for a wild card too.”
    now, here is the bad news. rumor has it that the minimum requirement for the consideration of wild card entry is OLY gold plus a couple of WC titles.

    Wild Card or not, only the best will become champion.

    Right, I'd better not take all that's reported in the press at face value. For all we know, Lee CW could be misrepresented and quoted out of context.

    As it is for Lin Dan, the same goes for Lee CW, I simply cannot imagine this year's WC without Lee CW. Really hope to see him at least in the semi-final - a final with Chen Long or Lin Dan (and for me, WZM as well) would be great. On the other hand,it might turn out to be Lin Dan vs Chen Long, as somebody puts it so well, the Living Legend vs The Future !

    I truly hope to see Lee CW charge himself up and give it his best shot. He had better start to adopt a positive frame of mind and concentrate on his training or else, nobody can help him. Let's look forward to another exciting,thrilling and memorable world championship !

    As some have rightly argued, let's put ourselves in BWF's shoes - what would you have done? Kudos to BWF for having done the right and best thing. On a similar note, their adoption of the hawk-eye challenge system is another step in the right direction, well done BWF.

    Oops.. maybe LCW shouldn't have wait for a wild card next year... He will have to work very hard for a minimum of a few years if he happens to start winning WC this year. "OG gold and a couple of WC titles"...

    unfortunately, the odds are all against the titles leaving the Chinese soil this year.

    as i posted earlier in other thread, LCW had never won anything in China and only been to the final in China a couple of times over the last 10 years or so and lost them both.

    China is not good for LCW as in Indonesia for LD, it's just something that they are not agreeing with.

    Cant blame China.. Its their ability to excel in all categories.. I see alot of people complain about Chine clean sweeping all the titles in most of the tourney. Its really not their fault isnt it? Its up to other countries to chase up to them. It could have been Denmark or Korea or Indonesia or Malaysia to clean sweep, I don't mind.. If a country's players can do that, it'll be good! Means they're on the right track. Who doesnt want to win? its about can u win it and win it all???

    most of the best MS matches for the last 4-6 years are involved with the same 2 players.
    we should be glad that they will both play in the 2013 WC!

Of course there are more factors affecting BWF decision, like tickets sale, TV rights etc. If you still want to argue, you better going back living in the cave.
    Very disappointed at LCW's reaction (if it us true)...

    BWF is in fact doing LCW a fabour. With LD participated, it's still a good chance for LCW to win given LD's lack of competition... and instead it whoever win WC13 will not be discredited...

    And it's fully within the rules, so why fury? Show the world you are the best by win this WC title!

    haha LCW is scared

    Joking aside, I agree that it looks like Chong Wei has already been mentally defeated before the WC...it feels like he's willing to do 95% of the work, but just wants the rest gift wrapped to him. Maybe that's why he couldn't close out the games against Lin Dan in WC2012 and OG2012...Instead of hoping the opponent will give him the next 1-2 points he needs to go out and take them

    That and he probably choked

    I can already see the headlines in the Malaysian Star on the 12th of August:

    "BAM blasts BWF after China dominance"

    LCW is already mentally defeated. All this "BWF is against me" bravado is just making excuses in advance. It's not very professional IMO. World championships is about the best players competing and it's a shame if LCW really said what he said.

    Unfortunately, compared with Tennis, badminton fans here are not as enlightened and reasonable... Didn't recall the WR#1 and their fans in both tennis cases screamed that it was unfair to grant Goran and Kim the wild cards...

    I'm not sure with the others, but i personally prefer a match between LD and LCW rather than LCW vs lesser known player.

    What about the others who have worked hard to qualify for the event.
    Talking about it, i think LD also had worked hard before he get to his position nowdays, the status that became one of the reason for the wildcard gift.

    Rather than qualifying, I should have waited for a wild card too.

    Next year maybe?

    How about CL vs LCW? or CL vs LD? LD vs LCW is kind of boring now .
