    Was that not in Sudirman Cup 2009 against Park Sung Hwan? PG had already won the first set and it was only in the second set when he was already leading that the migraine hit. He had to finish the match that he had already began and was almost winning, period.

    If you could have known that you would be bugged by illness earlier on before the match even began would you not have chosen to forfeit the match so that you can avoid further injury to yourself, especially against your regular team mate that you have no ill intentions against?

    Please make sense.

    Peter Gade suffered a severe case of migraine headache, whereby he had to spend some time in the hospital, just as he arrived @ the 2007 M'sia Open. However that didn't stop him from eventually winning the MS title.

    Looks like PG played with a risk during the tournament. But IMO he was playing against mostly players from the other nations and the stake was higher. It is also not that he was playing with the migraine bugging him everyday unlike LD who is already facing the illness at the last minute and has not been to the hospital yet.

    LD was against Chen Jin who is his own team mate. It is more sensible to be compassionate towards your own team mate from the same nation.

    Based on the above post #2266, no wonder professionalism never took off in badminton. Way to go.

    Undoubtedly Lin Dan’s only goal since 2008 is the elusive second Olympics gold that none of his peers has achieved. The secondary goal as a bonus is help his team to get the maximum 3 qualification places in London next year that even Li Yongbo accepted will be a tall order. As today, the world No 5 has a total of about 65,000 points, averaged 6,500/tournament. It’s a good pointer for what required by next May.

    So, for the just finished Singapore Open both LD and CJ achieved that (7800 and 9200 respectively). Do you really think that between two teammates they can motivated to play to death and risk injuries and exhaustion? What is the point to insist, even if this is possible by BWF, for a player not interested, with injuries/unwell or both to carry on playing until he/she drop death on court?


    Do people really wanted to watch a match that both players are not interested for the results, not 100% fit and certainly not on full throttle as there is another tournament in a few days’ time?


    As to the ‘team order’ theory throwing around, as usual with neither evident nor proof, what do you think or expect BWF can do? A multi billions business like F1 cannot do much about that same issue and you are hoping the all almighty to sort it out?

    My take is, after you tried out with carrot and stick that still didn’t work. Just leave it and let it be.

    If you respect the sport, understood and practice good sportsmanship then you won't need to write so much. As seen, you are not.

    As for those in bold, are you sure FIA did nothing to punish and penalized those team who acted like they are above the sports? They even had the new R&R written and changed before the next race is up! I can easily name you a couple of high profile cases that was brought up to court and the guilty party was made to pay millions and there is no repeat offence up to date.

    If you need example of events to support your theory, make sure its a good one.

    Now back to badminton.

    Good point. That is why IMHO there should be no doubt when LD chose to simply be compassionate and let CJ have the title (or CL to advance in MO2011) without having to risk further injury himself. The spectators may not like it but truthfully that is one of the most sensible choices to make anyway.

    I agree. And I will be on my toes watching the big match between LD and LCW enjoying every moment of it rather than ranting at politics along the way

    Since lindan is so rich, ask him 'not' to be a cheapo. There are expensive water for him to drink. errr. call me if he wants it. lol.

    The water must be toxic? We need a CSI on this... lol.

    At least give those non experts to see Lindan play live ler.... It's not that he is here every year you know.

    Now back to badminton.
    FIA can do something if they have evidents, not by something they think is happening.
    didnt you know that some teams use coded words with their radio commuications to their drivers to slow down?
    millions dollars fine! McL***** set aside $50m to pay fine in court in order to find out what Fer**** was up to a few years back.

    to respect the sport is to play by the book, in this case BWF's rules that written down. if someone foul short of that, it's the governing boby BWF's job to deal with it. as there isn't any action from BWF there is no case to answer.

    so, stop whinging about for nothing.

    Anyone wanna bet for another familiar show in Indonesian Open? Since he will be killing each other.

    If it happens, what will be the excuse this time you reckon?

    It just shows that BWF is dumb. They should have a clause for everything. haha.. sounds familiar with contracts?

    Lin Dan is drawn in the bottom half of the draw with team-mates Chen Jin and Bao Chunlai, Indonesian star Taufik Hidayat and Danish veteran Peter Gade Christensen.
