    I think the spectator or even officials rather shock and don't know what to react. Because it's very rare situation compared to say Football.

    I think BWF's biggest question now is how to prevent this from happening again. Let's assume a 1 or 2 year suspension is given out to both of them. Will things have cooled down by then if those 2 face off again in another tournament?

    After both players were split up from the fight, there was also another fight in the practice court area according to some witnesses.

    ^ And this is wherein lies the importance of Bodin and Mannepong coming out quickly and publicly together to apologize for their behavior.

    The sooner they do this, the better the damage control, and the lesser chance of BWF needing to resort to impose stiff penalties (read lifetime bans) even just for the sake of setting an example for simple deterrence.

    One of the recently uploaded videos has Yi Tai of China playing against Kaori Imabeppu of Japan. I couldn't help but notice that Yi Tai was not in China team colours.

    Is she an independent player from China? She does not appear to have even a ranking history or a BWF rank or player ID. Strange...

    I'm ASSUMING she recently moved to Canada from CHN or something and still must register under the Chinese flag.

    Does anyone know to whom and when the other two black cards were issued?

    I found one of them: Scott Evans of Ireland in Norwegian International 2011

    That's actually an interesting article!
    Food for thought for those of us who have that fiery Celtic blood coursing through our veins.
    Thanks whyau.

    Early on, all four players were warned by the umpire for not trying hard, and Berg returned and produced black cards to disqualify both pairs, but the cards were rescinded on a promise of better play.
    The game would not be completed (though eventually disqualified) if the black cards were not rescinded.

    According to Kyle Hunter of Badminton Canada from one of the videos, the previous black cards were issued to
    1. an athlete swearing at an umpire (likely Scott Evans)
    2. an athlete getting into a verbal shouting match with the opposing coach

    That comment reminded me of a video of him (sorry off topic but funny)

    ^ Whoa, that's pretty harsh. Should've swore at the ump and ref too if he knew racket throwing would earn a DQ.
