I don't think it's BWF vs. LD, but BWF vs. Chn In my opinion, BWF will rather concentrate on fixing the problem instead of confronting thorny issues
btw, I am not familiar with the quote "LYB said to break LCW leg". If you care to elaborate, we could go into that for further discussion, otherwise I can't give my opinion on your question

I think Sepang point is : The coach (LYB) made provacative remark, wasnt punished. So, should Li Mao be punished? Of course this incident is more dramatic.

I just have one comment:
Lin Dan swept over Lee Hyun Il 21-4 and could have won it in the second set. Yet, he missed those matchpoints. The same thing happened in the rubber-set, before all those controversies set in. If he won it at that time, we wouldn't have all this bouhaha.
So, who was to be blamed, if not for Lin Dan himself He had the chances to seal up the match without any controversies and he failed to do that.
Move on ppl......

The camere/hawkeye system was covered in Msian's press today :
BWF must act before it's too late
29 January, 2008
THE Badminton World Federation (BWF) can't say it wasn't warned. The unsavoury scenes that marred the Korea Open men's singles final on Sunday were just waiting to happen. A number of players, led by 2004 Athens Olympics champion Taufik Hidayat, had spoken before about how difficult it is to have fair play in several countries.
Taufik, when in Kuala Lumpur, named the countries with South Korea and China among them.
In the Korea Open, Lin Dan erupted with fury when a shot from Lee Hyun Il that was clearly out was called in and briefly, it seemed that a free-for-all would break out as coaches from both teams threatened to enter the fray.
The call came at a crucial moment as it allowed Hyun Il to save the match and go on to win the title.
Disturbingly, such injustice will happen again and with China already having proclaimed it is eyeing a clean sweep of the five gold medals in the Beijing Olympics in August, BWF has to swing into action.
Badminton can't afford to be tarnished by dubious line calls in Beijing, not when it is still an infant in terms of its status as an Olympic sport.
Since badminton became a medal sport in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, the BWF -- or the International Badminton Federation as it was previously called -- has worked hard to maintain its status.
The scoring system was changed a couple of times as BWF tried to find the right formula to keep fans interested and sponsors coming in
The time has come for BWF to introduce the Hawk-Eye technology that tennis is using. Cost is undoubtedly a factor but with badminton growing at a phenomenal rate, BWF has to take the next step if the sport is to progress.
The advantages of the Hawk-Eye were clearly seen in the recent Australian Open Tennis Championships as unsavoury incidents were mostly avoided.
BWF has a good thing going, and it must work hard to ensure this continues with an incident-free Beijing Olympics.
l EITHER the Malaysia Hockey Federation or its alter-ego, the Malaysian Hockey Confederation, is now more than a million in debt. The lesson for national associations is to think carefully before committing themselves to expensive hosting jobs.
While the quality of the Champions Trophy is undoubted, the price that both associations have to pay is high.
The idea of hosting the Champions Trophy was to provide the national team with valuable exposure ahead of the Olympic Qualifier in Japan in April, but this could have been done at a fraction of the cost had the squad been sent to an invitational abroad.
Even worse, the credit standing of whichever association responsible for the tournament has suffered a blow. And it would be wise if from now on, all associations carefully study the implications before bidding for hosting jobs.

BWF has to do something about it like Referee who was in charge in HKO 2006....you cant say like to the player..." you do not like the rule or decision...dont play""" this hsow that referee was not qualified enough..plus he was the one ( in recent CO 07) to create many problems for CO 07 also...( he was deputy of Referee head)....
Having said that...I wont be surprised that BWF would call both of them and the player may get punished like TH...
Comparing this KO's incident and TH in HKO was nothing but TH did get punishment....Incident in KO involved more violence...thats sad!

WBF - is the ROOT CAUSE of the problem !!!
When the incident happend during recent KO 2008 , eveyone is trying to put the blame into someone . IMHP , the " ROOT CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM " is definately due to "WORLD BADMINTON FEDERATION" lack of professional management in BADMINTON as a whole .
LIN DAN happend to be their latest victim , followed by LCW , TH , etc and the list will carry on as long as those " MORON " up there keep doing nothing and nothing and nothing .
BADMINTON FANS will loose everything as time to come until we do have professional committee members in WBF .
Frankly ..i pity the players and the fans .

They should just set strict rules and adhere to it
Punish the troublemakers, if players decided to boycott then thats their own problem, it means less price money for them and putting their own sponsership in risk

I did not have cable Astro to tell you about G2. But in G3, bad calls were coming well "before all those controversies set in" plus LM's constantly bothering LD while behind LD during the match, don't you think these factors contributed to LD not able to finish those match points

I agreed WBF should take responsibility & the root cause for this. What a POOOOOR management!!!!
If Korea can do this dirty judgment to China, I can't imagine what will happen for the next China Open SS!!! Maybe Korea will not send their player to China & China won't play in Korea anymore in the future.
If this not stop, each country will soon take revenge against each other. Corruption will set in.
Player must given full authority to change lines man at his request.
Hope someone from WBF will read this forum.
