2) LD (by proxy through a spoken person) did make an apology for the 2006 MO incident.
Let see if taufik would make a such public apology.
I think we too the fans got emotionally and i think we dont need to send a petiton. I'm sure the ibf will make note of this incident and make corrective measures better badminton.
I don't want to dump more on taufik but not only did he slapped LD's face, he also slapped the faces of his coach, pbsi, his family, WBF (ibf), the umpire, the linejudges, and the fans.

I disagree with your above statement. I do not think that this is a case of Taufik against Lin Dan. Yes they have their rivalry but to imply that Taufik slapped Lin Dan in the face is done so without strong facts behind it. Now you are giving the impression that Taufik did this on purpose to spite Lin. This is wrong. Taufik is an emotional player and he has done this in the past. I for one do not think that this was against Lin, just against poor line calls. That is my opinion. You have yours, just do not put words into the players mouths. That is wrong.

Total unsportsman like behavior.
I also favor a $$$fine and suspension for Taufik's unsportsman like conduct.
What Taufik lost is priceless, his image, reputation, fans, and team mates respect. He may have affected Sony's performance during his game.
Oh well, see what happens in World Championship.
Does IBF have the right not to accept his entry/application? Or just not send him an invitation? IBF's reason would be, why bother, he's just going to walk out again!

LD was obviously acting immature and unprofessional at MO, but TH was breaking the rules for not finishing the game and being rude on the judge
i would say suspend the next coming tournament, monetary punishment is useless on TH, he might not be the wealthest person on earth, but rich enough not to care
i am amazed by how fans can support a wrongful act so blindly...

i have merged the two discussion threads on taufik's incident in the HK Open, as they both coverged to discussing the same topic.
and thanks everyone for discussing this matter in such a civilized manner. every person's opinion are naturally different, but the key is to respect what each other said, and disagree in a respectful manner in return.

Definately wrong behaviour by Taufik this time. I saw some calls for videoing the line for replays. Not an option at the moment. Our sport isn't rich enough as yet. It took many years for tennis to introduce the service line technology.
Here, I think IBF needs to have a discussion with the line judge, umpire and referee and get a formal match report. Then, consider if Taufik needs some sort of fine.
For my PERSONAL OPINION, Taufik should be fined. If he refuses to pay, some sort of suspension from IBF sactioned tournaments. e.g next 3 tournaments (5*/6* tournaments)
And the coach shouldn't be allowed on court for a some time either.

Agree...Originally Posted by madbad
The IBF has been running like a non profit organization (or it is). All the councils have their own full time job. Attending council meeting during a 6* tournament is just like going to a big party for them. Have we all seen how often the scoring system changes? IBF should really start to learn from other pro sports and running the sports like a real profitable business or give the right to some companies to run it.
I love to watch Taufik plays. I would definitely miss his net touches and the backhand smashes if he got suspended. But for the good of this sports, suspend him, please!
On the joke side, I heard one report said Taufik walked out of the stadium and said he is going to Macau….watch your arms, Taufik….that’s the least place you want to be after making some big bets losing….or maybe it’s the other way around….hmmmm…

People forget it.... the reason u are all so pissed is because u all missed the most highly anticipated game of all time
Taufik has the right to quit, no one owns him, he has his reasons and you should respect it, you all felt offended because you all couldn't draw conclusion from the match. Of course I am disappointed because I myself wants to know who is greater.
But to be honest he did not offend anyone, other than the line judge and some anti-Taufiks fans. Compared this to LD's indcident of not accepting the Malaysian gift, LD's action is like saying F*** Off to entire Malaysia nation and his fans accross the globe who were watching it live.
Anyway this was a quater-final, and it was not on air, only a small damage was done.. especially to small number of people in the stadium.. whos probably traumatised for life.. lol

first, LD did stay and entertained the crowd, MAL fans happy coz LCW won. LD apologized later.
second, the big one, is this single action quashed all the effort by us fans and ibf to promote badminton and getting more sponsorship. If ibf doesn't fix or control this 'unexpected' game fortfeiture, badminton will see LESS sponsorship, even from asia countries and companies. What sponsors would want to associate their names with this kind of event?? What tv channel want to slot in badminton program with players walking out games on a whim?? less sponsorship= less money=less marketing=less popularity=less new talent=badminton going downhill
if ibf doesnt do anything, watch sponsorship to slip off.
that means yonex has to bear more of the funding and sponsorship, which mean higher cost on new badminton equips. Yes, taufik action will costs us all.
Paramount Picture terminated Tom Cruise's contract because of tom's unpredictable off screen behavior. Yes, off screen behavior was enough to get his contract terminated. Taufik behavior here is like on screen during a take.

Most people who have quoted me since I last posted seem to have completely misunderstood me. That could be my fault for not making myself clear, or people not fully reading all my posts (and only quoting a small irrelevant part). I am NOT trying to blindly defend him (like I stated earlier). I'm simply trying to say that it's honestly not that big a deal. What he did wasn't super professional, but nor was it super UNprofessional.
I just don't understand how people can dwell so much on such a thing...

Badminton is Taufik's livelihood. He is a professional and should understand that he has an obligation to play while enertaining the spectators. If every sportsman is going to just walk away without finishing whatever they're competing in, then do you think people will bother to pay watching and suddenly the game is over less than 5 mins later???
No spectators = No demand/popularity = No Revenue = No Tournaments.
