Thread: 21-point is better

If switching to 21pts is for better time control ...
If switching to 21pts is for better time control,
why IBF never thought of make it a Time System (like soccer/basketball) instead of Point System.
My suggestion would be:
Let's use 30min for game and whoever take the lead by the end of that 30min would be the winner.
30min or 15point x 3 games, whichever end fist
How does that sounds?

Maybe.......but the fact there is no time restriction makes badminton a good game.
Could you imagine losing and on a comeback and the clock has 15secs left?
I would hate that.

that is "forcing" either sides not to lay back, they have to fight for staying in the leading mode all the time ... guess that would increase the excitement of the game too.
of course, some ground rule has to be set, eg. the 30min has to be the actual play time, any time that wasted for short breaks or arguement of bad calls etc. should not be counted.

If there ARE people in favour of different types of systems, why cant the tournaments decide what type of system is used in each one? Say All England could use 15 X 3 , Comm. Games 21 X 3 rally point and Thomas Cup some other system.....
In the end, the top five world players would have to be proficient in ALL these systems,
and it would test all the top players' tactics in every match and/or tournament they play...
dunno...just a suggestion. but to be honest, Id just opt for the old 15 points system.....
I just came up with this idea cause everyone seems to favour diff. systems!!

03-23-2006, 03:58 AM #75it will be a shuttlecock shootout. You place a basket at the far end of one court and players stand at the other far end, and each get five shots in enter the basket. If still tie, then sudden-death shootout will decide the match
This is turning crazy... that's more like basketball!
No way, that just sounds horrible!
This is badminton, not anything else.

I hope this 30 minutes time thingy is a joke...
You can't be serious really..
I stick to this: "Why change a sport that is already the best in the world?"
I love watching badminton on tele..
But I wouldn't change the game to get more broadcastingtime.
The sport is made for the people who want to play it
not for some 'stupid viewers' that don't understand the scoring-system.
(New scoring system would make it easier for the noob to follow)
And, this is said before, people who like tennis don't mind spending 3,5 hours watching an exciting match.
Same thing for us badmintonfans, why do we want to reduce the gameplay (just for broadcasting)
If badminton isn't spectaculair enough (now), so be it..
I really see us badmintonplayers as victims now...and I hate that!

If you checked back my original post,
i was saying "IF Switching to 21 point system is for a better time control ..."
Personally, i still support the 15 pt x 3 games system, but i was just throwing out an idea based on where IBF is coming from.
Of course, if switching to 21 pt is not due to time concern, i see no reason why the 15 x 3 system should be changed.
But again, if time is IBF concern, then why don't they simply use a TIME restriction system?

I agree, none of these changes will automatically make badminton..................more popular?
How matches are presented and 'hyped' would make more difference.
Time limiting rackets sports is not the answer..........tennis, squash aren't limited by time.
I don't know if I am biased, but Badminton is far more exiting than tennis and squash to watch already.

Dude, I was only joking about the shuttlecock shootout ... I was never champion 3 years in a row, only runner-up twice. (joking, joking ... it was so obvious I don't know how you can take me seriously)
A game like badminton (just like tennis or table tennis) can never be time-constrained like football or hockey. It simply does not make sense.

Oh I thought you were serious ...........not!
Maybe instead of a shuttle shoot out the players must fight bare fisted until only one man is still standing?.........yeah, that sounds cool!
That would be exciting: Badminton crossed with UFC and WWF!
P.S : This is a Joke!
