Lee Chong Wei was not disappointed over not getting to play against Lin Dan
In a way I agree with you.
We read that Lee Chong Wei was not disappointed over not getting to play against his arch-rival Lin Dan.
Reading between the lines in this article tells me so;
Lee Chong Wei wows fans in China Super League outing
Monday, 21 Mar 2011
By CHOW HOW BAN
Two-time All-England champion Lee Chong Wei completed his four-day trip here with two fine wins for the Guangzhou Yueyu in the China Badminton Super League.
On Thursday, he overcame Du Pengyu of Zhejiang Yinjiang for a 14-21, 21-19, 21-10 win in the fourth match of the best-of-five mixed team format. But Guangzhou Yueyu lost the tie 2-3.
In the tie against Bayi Dongling Liangyou on Saturday, Chong Wei benefited from the absence of Lin Dan. He gave youngster Luo Cheng a lesson in his 21-10, 21-9 win.
Crowd puller: Malaysia’s Lee Chong Wei is mobbed by autograph-seeking badminton fans at the Tianhe Gymnasium in Guangzhou on Saturday.
The Guangzhou Yueyu, who also signed up other big names, including Taufik Hidayat, Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong, won 5-0.
Chong Wei said that he was not disappointed over not getting to play against his arch-rival Lin Dan.
“He could not play because he has commercial shoot obligations. Moreover, the match schedule of the league is quite tight and we would have to prepare for the Olympic Games’ qualifications that will begin in May,” he said.
Chong Wei has described Guangzhou as his second home as he has many friends in the city and has played many important matches at the Tianhe Gymnasium.

And if the player doesn't perform, they become a yo-yo joke among fans. And when the player wins, fans kiss their butt all the way, including politician showering them with gifts and title and what-nots, and BC fans adoring/defending them including those banned and present, and some even go to the extent of naming themselves after the player.
If I am not mistaken, Datuk is the most successful baddy player in MAS history and he is very fortunate to play in MAS with all the MAS govt backing, even to the extent that the PM's wife is a patron of the game. In previous posts I made, I said except for Datuk, TBH/KKK, they are many MAS players who made nothing and when they retire from the game, they face reality of finding a real job.

I was playing last week and my friends who never follow BC came up to me and said, 'hey, your MAS player LCW beat LD' and that was in HK TV that my friends saw...that recognition for MAS is priceless, I agree with you. As for politicians selling their stuff...err...dude, let's not go there, may be ala sensitive and get yourself banned

KO11, LD won on the last 4 pts in the rubber set, in AE11, LCW beat LD 2-0. In a match between these 2, an edge here and there tilts the game either way. I think LD would not play LCW unless LD is ready and in CBSL, I don't think LD is ready as another loss would lift LCW mental game even higher.
In KO and AE, CHN unloaded her entire MS players in this open tournaments, still LCW did not lose a single set to any CHN players except LD. Come OLY, where the limit is 2 players, it will be even harder to guarantee a CHN gold, esp if LD will to lose to LCW right after the AE loss. The MAS harimau becomes even tougher and braver.
So, LD avoiding LCW in meaningless CBSL and LCW not disappointed (means happy) that LD not playing, that is a right call in my opinion. LCW gets paid big bucks to put on an exhibition and gets to check out those chinese girls...win-win for both players

Even if he is fined Usd10k and suspended for 2 tournaments , that's nothing compared with what he gets from a commercial shoot.
The guy is resilient and can win matches like nobody's business and often he will reach the final of most tournaments he competes in, whether he is seeded 6th or 3rd.
That happened in the 2011 KO and the AE.
The thing is he is a big star and badminton enthusiasts want to see him play just as tennis followers wanted to see John McEnroe play despite their 'negative' traits.
They draw/drew the crowds which generate revenue and that is what sport is all about.
