My point was indeed that LD received some sort of assistance back then. I have writen enough and to fully understand my point, kindly start reading from page 178 I think.

Does your argument stop at whether LD received assistance, or do you further argue that the said assistance had an effect on his subsequent matches?

Can't prove that LD got assisstance from CJ . But the final shows LCW was not in the same level as LD. LCW made a lot progress after 2008. But he's still not good enough to beat LD in 2011 WC. That defeat was more a pyschologicall problem. When LCW had game point, he wanted to play safe but LD could take risk because he could accept a lost to LCW. The result made this year's OLY game more interesting to watch. Now I only like to watch games between LD, LCW and CL.

Be that as it may, he is still one of the best in the history of the game, and I think that should be good enough for him. Obviously not good enough for some of his fans, but they are always entitled to their opinion, for what it's worth.
My first sentence was "I am a fan of LD the player." Yes, you may read between the lines. And there is something I will never understand: How does being "the greatest player etc etc" entitle you to milk the situation by being a willing participant to blatant manipulation without copping some of the blame? Exactly how "great" does that make one? I have been waiting for 2 years for an explanation and I have found none that is honest or guileless or not politically motivated. I suspect it will continue to be a long wait.

It is an open secret that CBA has fixed results of matches in the past be it the women's category or men's. It is nothing new that when comes a Chn vs Chn game, the player who stood a better chance in bringing glory to China in the subsequent matches would received an easy match (as what I described in my previous posts). As for that LD vs CJ match, I came to my own conclusion and stood by my opinion that it happened. Period.
Now the point is some of LD's supporters and fans are agitated and showed very strong reactions, asking for evidence or prove in regards to my opinion and some even brought up LCW which to me is beside the point.
What I wanted to relate to you people is I don't have prove, evidence or whatsoever as requested (for that you need to ask LYB and the players and see whether you would get any LOL) but hey, you can simply brush it off as they are just my personal opinion. Don't get so worked up. LD's position as "the greatest player" as claim by his fans wouldn't be threatened. Would he?
Those events did happened. It is up to the individual how they see it and if it really existed, I can't see why LD would be exempted.

Lin Dan getting assist from his teammates to win big tournaments hence he should return the favour to his teammates ?
Do you have any idea how many titles this bloke has given away particularly for Chen Jin just for the sake of China?
His All England title, Singapore Open, Japan Open, Denmark Super Series, you name it.
Officially he could have won more titles and trust me. Instead 50 titles, he could have double it to 100

That aside, you quoted my post in your reply, so I assume whatever was in your reply was, at least partly, directed at me. Nowhere in my post did I ask for evidence or proof of any sort. It was simply a clarification as to what your actual point consisted of. If you don't want to answer, that's fine really.

I'd written enough I guess. It seems like going in circles. Pls read my post from pg178 if you people still have any queries.

If only Lin Dan were more selfish, self-centred and cared only about his own fame and glory, winning all the accolades,titles,ranking points and position for himself. But then he wouldn't be my Lin Dan Instead he is ever willing to help his colleagues,sacrifice himself and put nation before self.That's my Lin Dan.
He was a willing partner not to milk anything from others but to give of himself,notably to help Chen Jin qualify for the Olympics which under normal circumstances he would have automatically qualified for being the top 5 ranked players if not for the special BWF and IOC rule limiting/restricting to 2 or at most 3 participants on certain conditions. Even Du Pengyu at no. 10 should have qualified too. However,as a result of that ruling,Chen Jin had to play 22 tournaments in one year at higher risk of injury, and his teammate LD was castigated by some for "helping" him as if he,CJ, didn't deserve it. Both LD and CJ needn't have to do all this in the first place.
Whether any other player(s) of other nationalities in the same situation would have done the same thing is a hypothetical question. No wonder Indian coach P Gopichand was all praise saying hats off to China,they work and hunt as a team,and that we should all learn from them. Also Peter Gade laughed it off as a cultural thing,no big deal.
Among his ardent fans, there are those who want him to win everything, no, some more,not enough,elevating him to godlike status - this is one end of the spectrum - on the other end,there are those who are contented and feel he has nothing more to prove, a few even think he may have won too much already. As for me,he is The Greatest of All Time as a player, and as a person,he is a good man, an extraordinary man warts and all, absolutely one of a kind.
