IMHO, the top five major titles in badminton are (in order of importance):
2. World Championship
5. Asian Games
Of course, some people might argue All China Games and Commonwealth Games are majors too.

That article clearly says only Lin Dan, Lee CW and Chen Long are consistent : "Only Lin Dan, Lee Chong Wei and Chen Long are consistent in the sense that they do not usually lose to players ranked below them."

If possible, I'd like to add the All-England as the 6th for being a special PSS/SS title in view of its long tradition and illustrious history though in terms of strength alone, most of the other PSS/SS are just as good.
I wouldn't include the All-China Games because it is an internal affair. Nor the Commonwealth Games which doesn't have many of the top nations/players involved.

Personally, winning the most number of PSS/SS titles should qualify as one major. In this regard, Lee CW can be considered to have one major title, IMHO. The contention is the other players should also take part in the same number of Superseries tournaments to make it more convincing. Just a thought, not many would agree with me because it's problematic.

According to me, Lee Chong Wei is more consistent than any other male badminton player in the world. Some people may oppose this as their players have proved much better than Lee taking the above mentioned five major tournaments into consideration. I dont think if you wanna tell about a player's consistency, taking sudhirman cup or Thomas cup into account will do better ??. The title behind this cups does not depends on one individual. Its a group activity..
The article was all about the consistency of men's singles players in recent times. I think they did not talk about the history and tournaments which somebody mentioned above.. Simple and Straight.
I dont wanna discuss this further.

The test of true champion is the All England,
for fame its both Olympic and World C'ship.
For fortune, it can either be banging on the SS like Chong Wei
or a walk in the studio like Lin Dan

I cannot blame you for not understanding how a MALAYSIAN FAN thinks and feels ....
As a Malaysian fan (and I dare say I speak for the most of us) - ALL THAT MATTERS are:
1) THOMAS CUP
2) UBER CUP (if the Msian girls ever get around to it !! )
4) WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
... everything else ... DON'T GIVE A MONKEY .... LCW can win 1000+ SS and in the process becomes the RICHEST player of all time, be will be regarded still an "under-achiever" if he did not bang in the above titles esp TC, AE, WC and Olympics ... btw, guess who has BAG THE WHOLE LOT mentioned ... ooopppss ... LIN DAN !! Why do you think, we, Malaysian fans, HATES LIN DAN for bagging the lot for China but he has our whole 100% RESPECT as the ONE TRUE CURRENT KING OF BADMINTON (from Malaysian point of view) ....
BTW, to me ... SUDIRMAN CUP is a Mickey Mouse cup thought up from someone's nightmare ... whoever he is, he is a JOKER !!

No 2 : Team events like TC are not LCW's responsibility alone. LCW can win all his matches but if the other 3 matches lost, also no use, Msia still will not win the TC. Uber Cup, forget it, many Msians consider our gals not good enough to contend with China & the best women players in the world. This is true at the moment, look at what happen to WS after WMC retire. TC is remembered because our men have won it before.
No 3 : Agree on AE, WC, OG. On that note, LCW tried his best, unfortunately he is born same era as Lin Dan. Even the AE that LCW won, there are those who think is ok ok tourament only, not major, hahaha

Personally, I won't use the All-England alone as the defining criterion for a true champion but will include the World Championship and The Olympics as well, all three,that is.
As for the AE, I fear the younger generation who has never heard of Zhao Jianhua or watched him play,not to mention its long 100-year history and the former greats who won it, may regard it as just one of the many strong SS titles. As time goes by, the AE is likely to lose its prestige unless all the top players make it a point to participate year after year. Fortunately, for now,it is still the case that quite many are willing to give it pride of place, though arguable as evident in this forum; I cannot speak for the future. Let's not start a debate on this, to each his own.
