No it's not that we hate him but more like we are dissappointed with his attitudes and sometimes behaviors. Many of us know that Taufik is capable of demonstration the highest quality of badminton yet he rarely shows us his true form. I know he was trying in the games (WC'06, China Open) against Chen Hong and Lin Dan (Japan Open up until 3rd set) but we are talking about his effort regularly in practices & tournaments.
It is shown that he hasn't been practicing or conditioning as often as before WC'05 through his awful form. And these past recent tournaments are not the only evidence we see Taufik's carelessness attitude. An example from the top of my head is the Malaysian Open 2005 (???) where it is said that he got drunk the night before he plays Lee Chong Wei thus resulting in a devastating loss of 15-0 / 15-1 or something like that.
Don't get me wrong because I still like Taufik over Lin Dan overall but these behaviors and attitudes that kinda sadden me since he should show more qualities that of great sport legends. To me, Lin Dan is great in that he always put 100% effort whenever he plays and his great mental strength but his arrogant attitude and sportmanship are very poor. Taufik in this sense is better as he has almost always shown good sportmanship and he's only arrogant against Lin Dan. If he matures himself and put in great effort like Peter Gade, Lee Chong Wei, Wong Choong Hann, and Kenneth Jonassen, he wouldn't get any complaint from me.
To clarify this, I don't really mind that he isn't winning much but just wish that he can be more like those players when it comes to trying his best on court. But I'm pretty sure when he does this, he'll start winning more thus giving us fans and spectators more excitement and enjoyment when watching his games.
Remember pros are made famous because of the fans and spectators as we show them great support by watching them; Taufik along with many other pros wouldn't have their fame if it wasn't for us fans. The main reason why they are endorsed is because they bring in crowds of spectators and fans. And if they weren't sponsored they would not have any chance to play since they would need to work to earn a living instead unless they are already rich but that is usually never the case.

check this out...
don't u guys ever REALIZE that this comment about TH is just a matter of different paradigms? (paradigm: the way u view something mostly based on your value and vanity) Therefore, these comments are not based on a solid ground. Their truth is really in doubt.
A simple example how different paradigms work:
If a man steal your money, what do you think of him??
a negative paradigm: he is such a bad guy.
a positive paradigm: if he doesn't steal, can he lives on? --> he's not really a bad guy.
Then, is he truly a bad guy or not? saying that he's such a bad guy because of your feelings after ur money lost is not based on a good reason and facts. The positive paradigm is closer to the truth cuz it's at least based on a good reasoning.
Now back to the real problems about TH...
1. why TH only wins big tournament?
a negative paradigm: he's lazy.
a positive paradigm: he has his own goals and expectations that we've to respect.
The truth (based on good reasoning and facts): if he's lazy how the hell he makes it to a great player that needs extreme hardwork. However, the facts say that he is a very talented one, that would be a good reason why he has quite extreme goals and expectations.
2. why did he walk off the court?
a negative paradigm: he's bad tempered, childish, etc
a positive paradigm: he loses in style, artistic, etc
The truth: The facts say that he's a bit bad tempered, he also hit a spectator once. And how does losing in style sound??? It's not based on a good reason at all.
3. Some people also says that TH is arrogant, thinks highly of himself, etc.
The truth: The facts say that TH admits the greatness of his opponent. TH also regards himself as one of Top players who could beat each other. Therefore, TH doesn't think highly of himself and no arrogance of him spotted.
Conclusion on truth about TH (based on facts and reasoning):
TH is a great and talented badminton player. Because of his talent, he has different expectations than most of players (only win big tournaments). He's not arrogant and he doesn't think highly of himself. However, TH is sometimes bad tempered cuz he can't control his temper (walk off the court, try to hit a spectator,etc).

And going into the stands and hitting a spectator is a bit bad tempered?
SSuly, you say are from the U.S. but I think we are from different worlds based on your post.

"walking off the court is losing in style and artistic"
it's a postive paradigm.. but it's not the truth. it's not based on sound reasoning. it's a total bs.

Quick take...Originally Posted by ssuly
anyways, this is my take..if i don't misunderstood what you are attempting to post..
The fact:i understand what you are trying to point out. Yes, we humans, esp. fans have a natural tendency to "judge" certain people/players on the merit of what they should or should not do...
The truth(as you like to put it & as i've mentioned before):as a *professional athlete*, esp. one who has won arguably 2 of the IBF/BWF's most prestigious titles/achievements in back to back yrs, should he continue and behave like what he's done the last 3-4 months?? If he really has some valid excuse(s) for his recent behaviors, then he surely must've been pretty good at "hiding" it. Add to that, remember, he was a 2-time IBF Player of the Year(2005 & 2006), most likely chosen for his "exemplary" behavior *on the court*....
now, that's something to think about...hehe
BTW, i have a feeling taufik-ist must be really enjoying(probably laughing at the same time) reading and looking at this thread, which he started, grow longer & longer..

But, i'll try..
TH has disappointed many of his fans and a lot of badminton spectators since HKO incident. However, TH realized this situation and said his apology to IBF. There's no better reason for this incident despite TH's lack of ability to control his temper at those kind of situation. Some facts also support this reasoning.

Truth or fact??..Fact or truth??..Originally Posted by ssuly
..hmm, i thought those are "facts"??...Anyways, i'm sure you're aware that the HK Open incident wasn't the only tourney which he disappointed a lot of fans, correct??.. And i really hope the disciplinary act/warning given by the BWF council(during the WC) wasn't "the only way" Taufik will finally conduct, behave himself again on court??..

he things that we're already know is that taufik doesn't care about people comment for his action he just do what he thinks should do.
but something that this forum don't know is that taufik's fans don't care too for everything people said about them and taufik, we just enjoy everything that taufik do, about pbsi coruption, taufik lazy, bla.. bla..bla..., you just wasting your energy. you should know the different beetwen taufik's fans and the other player fans is the way their thinking about their idols
we enjoy the fells arrogant of taufik, we fell that we win eventhough taufik lost, can u enjoy the feeling when he walk out from HO and World Cup, can u enjoy the felling of taufik's lost when he just threw away the shuttle cock to the net when he lost from lin dan 21-3, i bet you can't?
Like life is not everything about money so does badminton is not everything about achievement, hey you rich than me but i'm enjoy my life than u i don't care about people said about me, same as taufik hey you better than me but i enjoy my play what people said ahhh terserahlah.
Naive people give everthing their best but they never get the best, because they don't know that everything is not being number 1, ahhh i think u'll never understand THE WAY OF TAUFIK FANS.

Yes, I'm completely aware that HKO is not the only incident which TH disappointed badminton spectators. I just picked the big one for my example.
ctjcad, actually I don't really know the disciplinary act/warning given by the BWF council...what kind of conduct does the council expect TH to do? to what extent?

http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...534#post441534 (wonder if PBSI is gutsy enough to hand down that kind of action to him??)...
..abt the HK Open incident and his recent other behaviors in this yr's calendar, those were not the only ones he *ever* did either..He also did roughly similar behaviors in the past, prior to him winning the OG and WC....

Even at 100% opinion is not a fact or a truth.
Even with sound reasoning it only give u a theory.
here are some samples:
not too long ago, man believed the earth is flat, the sun spins around the earth. Are these are facts, the truth, or just opinions?
So far, your beliefs on TH are based on no facts, just opinions, shakey at best.

Get Rid of IBF Is The Only SolutionOriginally Posted by cooler
All the arguments from both sides here seem to ignore one of most important facts: badminton is a ‘pro’ (not a very popular) sports and it is running by an organization instead of an enterprise. Until that day when it’s running by ‘evil and greed’ corporation, we will continue to see tops players giving up matches just like TH did (we have had many arrogant or bad temper tennis players, did anyone dare to quit or walk off so easily?). And we will continue to hear Americans asking us “oh, badminton…, is that one we play in the back yard?”…
No fans no sports. There are all kinds or types of fans for each sport. Who would say the ones have most critics on TH were not TH’s loyal fans? Who would dare to criticize Deco Manadona in front of Argentines (you know how bad he got)? There are more TH fans in Chinese national team than anyone else’s fans … The fact is that we all love or loved TH, but he is damaging the sports right now. And for 90% of normal badminton fans around world, we like to watch a great match and we deserve to watch it if we pay the tickets. But TH is not main one to be blamed. IBF is (who should we sue if you want your money back).
So still the same point, instead of arguing with each other so hard, think about a way to enterprise badminton sport if you have money and time, a way to get rid of IBF…
