LCW is a true badminton player and an ambassador to the sport . Playing when he is in tip top condition and also when he is not. LD is a chicken and sent his younger teammate out to be slaughtered. CL must be cursing.

LCW - Legend
I had posted this on another thread some time back. But I think it is appropriate to have this post in this thread.
Lee Chong Wei: Legend of modern-day Badminton
Last time I checked, AE was a SS event. Just like MAS SS, INA SS, Japan SS etc. Can anyone say that those events are not fought for by the best in the world? Or were not fought for? If CHN chooses not to send their best to say, MAS or INA Open for fear of the partisan crowd, well then, it's no different at the China Open either!
So under these circumstances, to have won so many SS titles (often with the best CHN competition around) is no small achievement, by any standard. Yes, there will always be people around to belittle a player and his achievements, and to that I say, "yeah, whatever."
Rashid was a great player, no doubt, but he didn't bring the Thomas Cup home single-handed. MAS had some really good players doing their thing in 1992; remember, they also knocked out China in the semis at that time. It was a team effort. A really good team effort.
LCW has achieved everything he has, often despite the system, and with the singular handicap of not having a strong MAS singles contingent to back him up anywhere at all. He has succeeded in maintaining his high standards for such a long time despite all the bitching and squabbling. He has taken his overworked body week after week for years, all over the globe, representing his country at the highest levels of the game with great dignity and great success. He deserves respect. He deserves our applause. He deserves our thanks. He has made this game worth watching.
Like Ivan Lendl, a tennis giant and legend of his time was once described, you sure can use the same words to describe Lee Chong Wei as "the greatest over-achiever in the history of the game."
I am not a Malaysian, but I sure recognize a great player when I see one. I would not hesitate to name LCW as a modern-day legend of the game, because he has achieved more than almost anyone else, despite the odds that have mostly always been stacked against him. This cannot be disputed. There will still be people who belittle him, but IMO, they only expose their own pettiness.

I think Alan Y should make discussions on other threads.
When you enter threads like this it becomes very emotional and bolehans become very unethical and immature and resort to
name calling and childish insults liked "Jiayou" and joker and bully you like in Malaysian schools and in daily life because they are the majority. They just cant accept other people's views and resort to putting people down and belittling them like the majority in Parliament.
Bolehans have practically taken over BC and have practically frightened away many other posters by their Gang tactics,
if you want to have rational and unbiased and objective discussions use other threads where you will have less harassment.
After reading many threads and input from posters it is pointless to argue, you will see a profile of the posters and will know what they are going to say .
I myself no longer want to participate in threads where this situation prevails, I do so in other threads (where posts appear out of topic for this reason) or open new threads.
I am no blindly loyal Bolehan neither do I discredit local badminton , rather loyal to badminton rather than country's badminton as I am not a politician.
So be happy and dont waste time against a brick wall.

And this is not 1st time China fans did so. If non China fans as much whisper something on LD in LD thread, all hell breaks loose, which has happened before.
So, who emotional? Same2 also, what goes around will come around.
