Btw, i was looking for cooler, who's arguably the staunchest and one of the "die-hard" fans of LD, in BC, to come in and somewhat give you support. But i think he knew that this small discussion is most likely going nowhere and for a lost cause...anyway...
*Btw, for Birdwood's info (this i hope badMania won't mind me "revealing") : i'm sure you've realized badMania is a loyal follower of baddy, but he's also related "directly" to the world of high level academia/universities. So yes, like eaglehelang has mentioned, he is quite fair in his arguments and will have facts collected first before he presents his arguments....Although, i may say, ahem, once in a while he can be a bit "patriotic" in his support/views (i'll let you figure what country he supports)..

ctjcad, the discussion was too hot for cooler to get involved and stay cool at the same time, so he chooses to stay away
I will take your words for badMania since you are our BC librarian, detective, welcome committee, ... sorry I need more fingers for the hats you wear

Off topic-It's okay and no problem..
Btw, if you're wondering who's badMania, here's a pic (one of many in BC) of him (and other BCers) during the 2006 S'pore Open:

just my opinion, the last call that the umpire did not overturned to LD advantage was not a blatant bad call as the ones that was overturned earlier. and trying to be a fair umpire (as he did wondefully when he overturned the previous obvious bad calls) he had no conviction that the call was bad. according to some the shuttle lands quite close to the lines. but maybe LD having had four calls overturned in his favour was really convince that the call was bad yet again especially it was a crucial point for him and did not take into account that the umpire had been fair before and thus he should have faith in the umpire and concentrate on winning the next point rather than throwing his racket around. now in a normal match, if the umpire upheld the call most players would not argue too much. but this being korea open and it's reputation of being biased to foreign players LD might have reacted strongly. no matter what, i still think his act of throwing the racket was wrong whether he was provoked or not.
and i fully agree that the line judging system should be fixed and fixed immediately before all this get out of hand for the sake of badminton.
hopefully no more storm. hopefully we could just discuss it in a calm manner. what am i saying? of course there will be a storm. maybe even tornado and a dash of volcanic eruption. hehehehehe

To your point that umpire had already corrected 4 bad calls and "been fair before", so LD "should have faith in the umpire and concentrate on winning the next point", I don't buy it.
(1) the last disputed call if it was bad, it should be corrected no matter how many bad line calls the umpire corrected earlier.
(2) the call was bad to the majority BCers who saw it and it must be even more clear to LD.
(3) the umpire might not be in a position to tell whether it's good or bad since it landed on the other side of the court or he was not totally convinced.
(4) having faith in an umpire who did not see or could not tell the call was bad? I'm not sure that would have done LD any good at the time, it was the end of the match, not in the beginning or the middle part pf the match of MSF KO 08.

Shuttle was IN as said by linesman. But later overrule by umpire.
Shuttle was OUT as said by linesman. But later overrule by umpire.
This happen 4 times.
Let say if all linesman job was professionally carried out, the games may ends peacefully.
So, the fire starter is the linesman.
There are any opinion here and there. No right and wrong.
If player mis-behave, they given yellow or red card.
Why linesman never get a yellow or red card??? He should be barred from linesman job for some times!!!
