There is so much emotion, quite like anger here, I can see fans who paid good $$$ hoping for a LD-LCW got disappointed and 'cheated' when the SF is almost within reach, but net surfers???
One question to you, if you are LYB as manager (this is your job, not a net surfer), who is paid to win and your huge bonus cheque and golden rice bowl of not getting fired depends on winning and winning majors, given the oppportunity to match fix and not violating BWF rules, honest to god, you would not do it?

Last time I checked , badminton was still classified as a GAME, not as a PROFESSION. The difference is that there are no guarantees in the outcome of the game; you show up and do your best, that's all. Your bank account still keeps ticking over. It's your commitment to the game that is now in question; unlike the commitment that has been shown by an actual "professional" like Taufik, or a guy like Peter Gade.
BUT, if money has now become the overriding factor and the CBA or LYB or whoever will do anything to justify their ends, then maybe they should just stick to the CBSL where they can mess around with their own people and system. Let's see if their gambling home crowd appreciate their manipulation as much.

Maybe ld is just unlucky one to be the 'chosen' one. His predecessors doesn't have this issue. Such is life.

You say 'Bank account keeps ticking' right, tell that to TCS making <RM1000 a month and try retiring on that....LD or LCW does not even have to play badminton anymore, their endorsement $$$ far exceeds their earning.
IMO, LYB targets are the majors that glorifies CHN, these SS events, except for CO or CM, LYB is using it as practice targets for his next generation of players, you are right LYB couldn't care less.
BWF changes the WR qualifying rules mandating players to play 10 SS to qualify for OLY, that may get LYB to play his A list players when the SS means something, starting May 2011, right? Unfortunately, MO11 is not included this time yet.

just like Zhang Ning previously.
Meanwhile his job is to play his team role of paving the way for youngsters
and obey BWF requirements for qualification, like many, many before him.
A chief coach would not be able to keep his job unless he can deliver results, there is still a big gap between LD and team-mates.

A lot of Western thinking is very individualistic.For eg. When Kirsten Larsen was up and coming I saw Lene Koppen give her a
15-0,15-0 drubbing in the 1980 AE semis and reduced Kirsten to tears.
Compare it to Ina at that time, Liem Swie King must have thrown many matches for Hartono or Sugiarto to shine
all for the national cause and for the long term.Can you remember LSK or Hartono ever giving team-mates a 15-0 drubbing?
China is a Communist country and places a high emphasis on teamwork,Chen Hong in all his playing years
could never play in the Thomas Cup.That is why they have such a strong team and countries like Denmark or Malaysia
do not. Malaysia though is trying to instill this.

Let's not open old wounds, Hartono would not be what he is if not for LSK and also LSK would not be what he is if not for
Hartono. I think it applies to Icuk too. Lsk is famous for throwing matches and giving opponents free points,once in the Ina Open
in 80s he was leading 14-1 in the final set against his Ina opponent who was undergoing a big trouble with his life,he even let his opponent catch up and win set and match.
I can remember all these clearly because at that time I had no credible msian player to support but followed more Hartono and LSK.
The only difference then and now and amongst teams is that China is the only team with so many players they can decide
who to win or lose.if I tell you the stories of how the Europeans used to fix Football matches to keep out Africans and others, it will make you wince. Talk about sportsmanship.
