4. go ahead and protest, don’t concede.
5. Incorrect. All teams know the judging standard used before entering tournaments. By entering the HK Open, u have agreed to abide by its and IBF rules. All players are treated the same way. I never seen HK officials favored any particular country. There are (or were) lots of taufik fans from the HK side too.
6. How was taufik not treated fairly, official’s conducts were by the book. More importantly, I THINK THE SPECTATORS AND THE SPONSORS should be treated fairly. They footed the bills and taufik played for monies.

Thanks for the reply Cooler, you saved me a post. Come to think about it, there's no need to post. If people cannot understand what Taufik did was wrong, there's no point nor use in trying to influence them anyway. They just don't get it.
Please note (as I'm sure the others here expressing their dismay with Taufik have the same/similar stance), I would feel the same if any other player reacted the way Taufik reacted. This is not a specific attack on Taufik. In fact, I'm pro-Taufik, hoping Taufik would beat Lin Dan in the HK Open.
So again, I am not singling out Taufik nor being biased against him. The fact is what he did was unprofessional. If any other player did this, I would be all over him/her as well.

Anyway, no news about 'TH's incident' that reports in INA media/press at sport column today. Quoted from JakartaPost -- TH retired trailing 4-1 in the first game of the match. The tournament's website didn't give a reason for his retirement.--the end. I guess, it's definitely embarrassing action that should not reported completely. This 'big-head' INA's famous shuttler wants to showed he was in the right side at that moment and never want accepted another opinion including wrong line-call.It's just an idiot decision that can make everyone laughing because he walked-out not in critical point and too early to know who can advance to last four although LD lead 4-1 at 1st set (still far from match point).2 specific identity of TH: emotional and controversy.Certainly, TH never regret for this situation because he isn't down-to-earth person type.

If I had seen it clearly and positioned where Red was, I probably would have said to Taufik if the shuttle was "keluar" or not!

hey guys, I'm going to close this thread because I can see it's going to move away from the OP's apologies. Suffice to say, if it's anybody who should be apologising, it's Taufik. Even if he thinks the line call was wrong, he should still have been professional about his behaviour to the linesperson.
