Lets get back to LD , I dont love the guy but I admire his talent ...

Don't hate the player, Hate the GAME, to let one player totally dominate one aspect of it, that it's too boring for the teary spectators.
Cos the domination is too evident, the jealousy is even more.

Personally I find LD's game a joy to watch. I have almost all of his games available on the internet. What I don't like is the attitude of many of his fans. Who with a rational mind can bear nonsensical stuff like "LD lost because he is generous", "LD just wanted to give LCW/TH/PG... some face", "If LD wanted to....", ... day after day?
LD fans took the art of "finding excuses for players" to a whole new level.
The dominance is "evident" to LD fans just because they brush away all of LD's losses by saying LD didn't want to win.

I don't recall myself ever posted anything similar to "Lin Dan lost because he is generous". I am a fan of Lin Dan, and a supporter of Cooler for his courage of being the sole fighter against the evil bolehian society(aka. bc forum). just kidding.

I myself also a fan of Lin dan , of course, we do feel sad whenever he lost to LEE CHONG WEI !

Come on , you all got to admit talent-wise; Lin Dan > Lee Chong wei . Just look at the head 2 head records. Not to mention what happened in the Olympic .
LCW is a nice guy and I dont want to say anything negative about him but LD is just in a class of his own.
p.s. I am a fan of both LD and LCW

Dear friend, I am sure you have not read enough of this forum.
If you think the LD being the best thread is too much for you then you probably have not seen the famous LCW/KKK/TBH going uphill/downhill, will LCW remain #1, WMC/LCW breakup and BAM is not happy threads.
Those are only the tip of the iceberg you would find in the professional players forum, you would shoot yourself if you dare to visit the tournament forum...
Don't get me wrong, cheering for your favorite players is not a sin, but complimenting your favorite players on the expense of disrespecting other professional players is utmost disguising. I have read almost all the posts in the threads you mentioned and I do agree that certain non-LD fans could be annoying sometimes. However, they are not as irritating as some of the LD fans here. The most recent case which really got on my nerves happened in the 11th China National Games-badminton Oct 11,2009 threads, where a fan girl made a remark which I find it hard to swallow.
Chen Jin, being one of my acquaintances and my favourite player, was not being given the merit he should receive in that thread(by LD's fan of course, who else would have done that? ). But guess what, that's not the end of the story. According to that fan girl, the whole reason CJ was able to steal a set from LD in his semifinal games was all due to LD being generous enough to let him win. That's right, it was a charity work from LD not because of CJ's hard work. Having know CJ, I know how hard that guy have work in order to get to the position he is in. And all his sweat and hard work has been ridiculed by this very fan girl, who spoke(or typed...whatever) in a tone that doesn't even consider CJ as a worthy opponent to LD. From what she said, she gave me the impression that she was intending to strip the final honour of CJ for being able to compete with LD in the semifinals stage and was suggesting that whatever this gentleman(CJ) have achieved was all given by LD.
And boy I was so pissed when I read it but I was calm enough not to make a scene of this(I am glad this happened on the internet, not sure what would I have done to her if I see heard this from her in person) until I read another ridiculous post by another LD's fan... which prompt me to click on LD's thread for the first time.
Note this is not the first time I read a remark like this from a LD's fan and it certainly is not the last.

It seems I wasn't really being clear, talent for moving quicker is different than talent for being able to "play the game" so much better than everyone else. If you're referring to movement speed as being more talented at badminton then you'd expect more sprinters to be playing the game would you not? What I was referring to when I was talking about footwork was the fluidity of Lee Chong Wei's movements, now sure Lin Dan has exceptional footwork to but personally I consider LCW's as being better. So if you're looking at it like that then yes I say Lee Chong Wei is the more talented of the two. The reason I pick up on footwork is because it's just so hard to judge talent on shots without knowing fully what it takes, you would really need to have been in the top to judge the top on something as complicated, whereas footwork is easier to judge because it is the basics of the game.

btw, lcw and CJ are 2 very hard working players. So hard working that they are 2 of the top players who often lose matches because of injury related matters; lcw his knees and CJ his back

Able to move quick on the court != (not equal) good footwork??? What is footwork anyways???

I thought I covered it to be honest, but I'll say again. Being born with the structure to move quicker than other players is different than being born with the ability to use the badminton footwork better than other players. Being quicker is more generic and shouldn't really be applied directly to badminton talent. Footwork is the sequence of movements around the badminton court required to reach the shuttle in the shortest and more efficient amount of time. It is one of the most important, if not the most important, things to be able to do in singles badminton at that level.
