Thread: IN or OUT?

Definitely, an In wouldn't be too much of a scene as the shuttle barely or rather dun actualyy landing in the area of the line. The trajectory of the shuttle itsself didn;t show that it is going in, rather it was going out.

I am sure the answer can be revealed by doing detail image analysis but hey this is sports, the linesman makes the call.
For a close call like that, the answer is depending on the linesman. If I were the linesman, I would call it IN because my judgement is the head of the shuttle touches the line. Others might call it an OUT, which is acceptable.....that is what makes a live sports different from a video game.

My call would have been "out!".
At that camera angle, shots very close to the line, that seemingly look like they're catching the line, can actually be just out if one were to be sitting where the linesmen are and looking directly down the line. In that photo, the shuttle cork actually looks mostly out. The first contact point of the cork even looking to be outside the line. So I would say when looking properly directly down the line, the shuttle cork would have clearly contacted the ground outside the line/court.

I voted "OUT!"
I would like the shuttle to be "safely in" to be called in. If it's hairline like in the picture, I wouldn't hesitate to call it out, even if half the cork where on the line, and half was out.
It would help the hitter, I would think, to adjust his/her strokes to account for draft, irregular shuttle speed etc.

(BTW, I am a qualified Line Judge)
Comment on IBF test rule change on Umpire over ruling Line Judges?

The picture quality sux. But I think it's IN.

The bird appears closer in due to the camera angle. This is why in sports like rowing or swimming a line is moving line is sometimes superimposed on the action in order to correct for this effect. This is also why line judges sit looking directly down the line, in order to see more clearly.
Of course, people always make mistakes...

As a linejudge, you need to call the shot as you see it (regardless of whether you think it might be in or out). It's either IN or OUT or you signal unsighted.
In most rec games, I would give the benefit of the doubt to the opponents.
I don't understand it. A number of you specify that it should be out regardless of whether the shuttle touches the line or part of the line. The rules are there to be enforced. Can you imagine if you are playing and in the middle of the game, you opponent call you for a fault because they felt like it or felt that they should because that was how they feel without any justification or application of the rules.
