    That's a huge investment for Adidas as Lin Dan won't be playing in this year WC and he will definitely retire from the international scene after Rio 2016.
    Firstly, 'heard that' doesn't necessarily mean it's actually true....secondly, how is it different from sponsoring a guy that still wants to play 6 years? Those salaries are paid yearly. The only thing that matters is how much the specific player can affect sales, and signing LD will very likely do more for a brand in a year than Chen Long did in his entire career so far....

    Yes, i am totally agree with j4ckie. Signing LD for whichever brand apart from Lining will have a huge impact on sales and brand image.

    No one knows. These kind of questions are easily answered by looking back just the last couple of pages, please do so in the future

    He did not qualify and they did not give out the wild card this year.

    He didn't qualify in time. I think he was rank 60-something at the time of the entering.

    Of course it is, what a stupid thing to say. He didn't play and didn't qualify, that's his own fault. If being world champion was important to him he would have done what was needed.

    Ever heard of any other sport with automatic entry for the defending champion?

    The wild card is a special case that is given after some decision by the organizing committee. It is up to their right and privilege to whom and whether to grant a wild card. Don't like it, then get on the committee.

    LD was having an argument with his National Team management and was prevented from playing in the qualification period. He was not "relaxing" and avoiding the hard work.
    By not giving him a slot, the BWF just played into the hand of the National team managements, not allowing the players to compete freely.
