    Do you realy dispute the fact that the writer is trying to say that this incident is indication of some decay in international badminton. Do you need me to supply you with a quote where she asserts that directly? How about her account of the 'fight' as an 'exchange' of body blows. LOL this 'brawl' consisted of a brief chase followed by 3 slaps and a kick delivered by one player to another laying in a half fetal position. All Bodin needed was an apron and a rolling pin and you would have had your typical minor domestic dispute.

    I think it's silly to take one incident and blow it out of all proportion and make it out to be some systemic issue. OMG passion in badminton. But, I guess you're right after all such bad behavior has been terrible for Hockey, The NBA, MLB and the NFL.

    I guess in other sports played by men passions run high an altercation happens and everyone moves on. Where as in a game played by boys such and event must lead to hand wringing and therapy for all those involved.

    Most associations claim they have all such support structures in place, but its a very moot point as to how efficient and present those structures are, and how well they in turn are integrated into the enforcement policies of the association.
    Yes a cluster of associations with a cluster of rules and standards applied on a seemingly random basis. In English we have a word that describes that, it's called a cluster****. The National associations are a big part of the problem and the most constructive thing the could do for the good of the game is disband.

    A 3-month ban? That's more like an unexpected holiday! Sooner or later all associations and players are going to find ways to make things even more interesting than just a slapfest.
    Nah 6 is appropriate, you have to look at harm to the game. This is nothing.

    I'm willing to bet you, that illegal betting is already into badminton in some parts of the world, and they are gonna get even more organised with the leagues gaining momentum. Is anyone even thinking of pre-empting that situation???
    No because they will be too busy obsessing over minutia to actually do something about issues that actually pose a real threat to the credibility of the game.

    A little bit of entertaining news wouldn't hurt either.

    My guess is that they decided to wait for the end of the WC before releasing a statement about this incident.

    BWF's verdict is out. 2 years for Bodin and 3 months for Maneepong.

    So same thing as BAT's punishment.

    Excerpt:

    Both sanctions are effective from the date of the incident – Sunday 21 July – and the players have 21 days in which to appeal.

    In addition, Issara will forfeit the world-ranking points and prize money earned from the said event.

    The 22-year-old was found to have breached five sections of the BWF Players’ Code of Conduct: Sections 4.1 (Inappropriate Conduct); 4.14 (Oral Abuse); 4.15 (Physical Abuse); 4.16 (Unsportsmanlike Conduct) and 5.1 (Conduct contrary to the integrity of the game).

    Jongjit (also age 22), was found guilty of breaching Sections 4.1 (Inappropriate Conduct); 4.14 (Oral Abuse) and 4.16 (Unsportsmanlike Conduct), after the Disciplinary Committee reviewed video footage and written evidence, including statements from both players, Thailand team officials and tournament officials.

    Did Issara's partner still get paid his prize money?

    LOL, prize money? For the Canadian Open? I think he used it to buy chocolate bars and gum at the airport on the way home.

    $1900 for runner up so $950 each. That's a lot of chocolate and gum. But still $950 is a very decent wage in Thailand for a weeks work.
