    Sometimes I feel sorry for his teammates and his opponents. It is quite unfortunate to have such a dominant player in their career. Peter Gade and TH might win more from 2002-2006 if LD career didn't cross with theirs. Over the last 5 years most of the major championships were battled between lee chong wei and Lin Dan and ended with Lin Dan as a winner. Without Lin Dan LCW could achieve more than TH. It is not easy to be his teammates too. Chen Hong retired prematurely because Lin Dan was a very consistent and outstanding at young age. BCL basically played under Lin Dan's shadow in his entire career. Chen Jin and Chen Long although are younger than LD, will likely to bear with him most of their career because Lin Dan badminton career is likely to be a long one. He know how to look after himself and stay away from serious injury. On the other hand, they may be lucky to have a chance to play with such a champion in their career.

    It doesnt always translate that the runners up would have won had the winner not been there.

    Sometimes the pressure of being the best can be too great. LCW may not have been motivated enough to train harder had LD not been around.

    PG has spanned 3 or more batches of chn MS players and come up second best to them all.....

    TH has achieved a lot. I dont think he would have achieved more elsewhere, i think he achieved what he has wanted and is happy with that. Whenhe was impetuous and impatient before it was because he waned to win, now when he loses or misses a shot he seems not too concerned.

    Most of the time it is easier to chase than to lead.

    Why are you guys still harping on the past. He lost because someone by the name of Ronald Susilo was a better player that day, not because of AE. There are no such thing as "should have". If there were, so and so would have won this or that. Facts are facts. Accept reality. Move on folks.

    Thanks for the revealing fact. Ronald brought credit to Singapore for sensationally disposing LD during that memorable Olympic outing.

    i once watched LD's interview aproaching OG 2008 beijing, there he talked about his dream to gain gold in beijing, along with xxf. too bad, xxf didn't make it in the end. he also talked about his failure in OG 2004 Athens. as much as i still respect and give credit to Ronald Susilo on that match, LD revealed that when he entered the athens OG, he kinda loosing his mind. he first think that he and xxf can go together to OG, but LYB didn't include xxf in the line-up. he feel desperate on that, and can't fully concentrated from the 1st match. hehe.. don't know if that can be the reason (beside RS played well, of course) instead of AE jinx.

    nice opinion. but i myself would prefer to compare him with mario balotelli of manchester city. pretty much like mario, lin dan also is a bad boy, bad temper, sometimes bad manner (i just know the incident happened in KO 2008, that's why i would compare him to the bad boys :P), full of controversies (with all his retirement and WO cases), expressive, arogant, and 'explossive'. but also like mario balotelli, his talent is unargueably (is it the right words to tell that his talent is great?) and his achievement is great (i think this is his difference from mario ). afterall, they even share almost similar nicknames, 'super dan' and 'super mario'. haha..

    conclusion, for me, LD is an unique player, with pretty balanced good side and bad side. he maybe is (or was? because i think KO 2008 is the last time he exploded so badly :P) bad boy, but at the same time, he also has his talent and achievement cover him. a player to be admired and to be hated.

    afterall, just my personal opinion. sorry if all of you not agree with that.

    If LD was anything like Balotelli, he would of tried to kill LYB for not sending XXF! This is the same Balotelli who throws darts at youth teams, plays with fireworks in his room, and fight with his own teammates to take penalty kicks.

    Lin Dan and all the badminton fans will be so boring if there were no LCW, TH and Peter Gade over the last 10 years.

    The dominance Lin Dan has in Badminton is as much as Messi in football, Michael Jordan in basketball, michael Schumacher in car racing and Roger Federer in Tennis. I don't think Lin Dan is a bad boy. He might lost temper but he dedicated to his training. He is excellent team member and carried out all the order from the big boss at the expense of his own glory. All the achievement he had cannot be done just because he is very talented. All the hardwork, dedication, outstanding training program by chinese team were counted.
