Anyway look, I'm sorry if you don't agree but it's just my opinion that the whole issue really isn't as big as some people are making it out to be. No matter how many times you reply to my posts saying, "you may think that, but in reality it could have so-and-so effect!", it will not change my mind. Again, sorry, I do agree that it would be nice for Taufik to make some sort of apology though, considering that although I don't find it too serious, some people obviously do . Ok?

A simple apology from Taufik will be fine..Originally Posted by phaarix
Anyways, i agree, you(and the rest of us) are free to say whatever you/we feel...Sounds kool??..
BTW, since this has caused another stir, too serious or not, making an apology(tough & simple it may be) IS the right thing to do for Taufik now..

Any kind of apology is accepted..Originally Posted by cooler
hmm, personally, it doesn't matter and i don't care if it's genuine or just damage control or made public or not....We all fans of badminton want some kind of an apology from Taufik, first and foremost and then from PBSI(if need be)...The damage has been done & by not saying or offering an apology at all, it will leave a "bitter" mark, esp. with the HK people..

i think you might want to increase the upper limit to around 24, as immaturity can go all the way there *cough* TH *cough*

match walk out
Sad that players don't realize who are paying their way, maybe the IBF should step in and impose fines for those that don't perform for the paying public. It puts the sport in at peril. Spectators pay for and expect entertainment. So, if badminton doesn't start to control the discipline (or lack of) then the IBF should. Every other professional sport has rules that the athletes must follow or pay a hefty penalty.

Taufik at Korea Open last week
It's funny...this line call incident happened here during the Korea Open last week, too.
It was during the 3rd round (I think) where Taufik was playing against Korea's No. Lee Hyun-il. It was on the deciding 3rd game when Taufik hit a smash into Lee's court and the linesperson called it out. TH went to the chair umpire and protested. Not satisfied, he called another official and protested once more delaying the match for a few more minutes.
I guess it's every player's right to question line calls. But as long as badminton does not have tennis' HAWK EYE technology, it would be difficult to ascertain whether a close call is actually in or out. The best way is to assign linespeople who are well-trained, have perfect visions, unbiased, and are always alert.
TH lost. 16-21 on the 3rd game.
I have pictures of that incident...will upload in a while.

The only time the others would need to make an apology would be if they were purposely being biased against Taufik, which they were not, at least based on the observations posted here.

The key is to understand you will get calls in your favor as well as calls against you. Take the good with the bad. In the long run, statistics will point out, it will be a wash.
Don't take it personal, don't think everyone is out to get you. And if they are, maybe you are doing something wrong. Either that, or you're No. 1 in the world.

Umpire, landlady and organizer have to make a public appology for having contributed to the incident. If they do so, I guess we can see the light of fairness. Besides, we all make mistakes. Demanding him ALONE to appologize publicly while he was the victim is in my opinion TOTALLY UNFAIR.

i thought we're thru with this??..
does it matter if Taufik or the others you mentioned make a public or private apology??..Just make one and it's gotta start with Taufik, if it's just for saving face..
And again, please don't label Taufik as "victim"..The real "victim", at least in my book, in this situation is the fans/public who have paid money and gone to see & support the player(s) WHO THEMSELVES ARE PLAYING TO GET MONETARY GAIN, rather than the organizer, umpires, referee, linespeople, you name it WHO ARE VOLUNTEERING(most if not all of them)..Taufik(and other players) is/are being sponsored and paid for the whole 2 tourneys and then still playing to get some more monies...please..
