lin dan is a hero, he plays to the crowd and has every right to be arrogant. i believe he can act whatever way he wants as he is the best on the planet, until someone proves they are better of course.

Totally agree with virusvoodoo.
You may arrogance, but you are not necessary have to be arrogance even you are the best.
Look also at Rudy Hartono. At his time, nobody could beat him. He was totally unbeatable. But he still humble.
If I am not mistaken, Lin Dan is the most arrogance player from China.
I have never seen an arrogance China player gefore.

Lin Dan can only consider as a good badminton player...
NOT a player with good sportmanship

Well.. this is not from badminton, but from table tennis, but this is the greatest sportmanship I ever seen. I feel so touched!!!
It happened in the 1/16 of this year's Table Tennis Shanghai WC 2005.
former world no.1 cum #3-seed Timo Boll vs Liu Guozheng
In the decisive final set, Boll of Germany reached the match point at 11-10, one more point to advance into the quarterfinal.
The atmosphere was tense...
"UHHHHHHH"... Liu Guozheng's smash didn't touch the table. He was out of the tournament. Nobody has any objection to this smash that it was out, including Liu Guozheng himself.
At this moment, match winner Timo Boll went to the judge. And told the judge: Just now that ball was in! It touched the table!...................................
The stadium became silent. After some seconds, thunderous applause exploded!! In the past 0.2 seconds, all people in the stadium realize, what is sportmanship, what is olympic spirit.
Now it was Timo Boll out of the tournament, "I really want to win this game, but I know, my conscience tells me, I have to do like that...."
My greatest respect and salute to Timo Boll.
