Line judging at TC/UC
Nobody mentioned this but am I the only one to think that the line judging was at the highest level during the TC?UC? There was none of the controversies we saw at China and Korean Open. What a relief.
BTW did they use soley INA line judges or were there others?

International judges were used especially in matches involving Indonesia. These judges are volunteers who paid their own airfare but the other costs (accomodation etc) were covered.

The line judges did a very good job in the TC/UC. was really happy with it. it pisses me off to see biased line judges. Are they gonna start using the same technology like the one in tennis?By doing so, some countries (namely Korea) would not have the chance to cheat.

A Line Judging Incident during UC final
I think it was the UC final between China and Indonesia. The line judge watching the base line on the umpire's side was unable to see clearly, probably blocked by the player's legs, and indicated as such by closing his eyes with his two palms.
The lady umpire, I understand to be from Hong Kong, called "in". This infuriated the Indonesian coach, I think it was Richard Maniaky (?), who ran up to the umpire in protest. Luckily his Indonesian colleague prevented him from further protests, otherwise he would be shown the yellow card and not allowed in the coaching area.
The lady umpire must have been very alert and since the shuttle landed on her side of the court and not on the far side, she could see the situation clearly and was bold enough to make a decision very quickly.
BWF Law 17.6.6
Where an appointed offical is unsighted (like this line judge in question), carry out that official's duties or play a "let". (In this case the lady umpire must have clearly seen that the shuttle has landed 'in'.)
BWF Law 17.5
... if in the opinion of the umpire, it is beyond reasonable doubt that a line judge has clearly made a wrong call, the umpire shall overrule the decision of the line judge.
BWF Law 17.2
The umpire shall be in charge of the match, the court and its immediate surrounds. (So if team offcials, like coach Richard M, make unnecessary protests which could disrupt and interfere with the smooth running of the match, they could be cautioned and sent out.)

ideally we can and should put our trust into the line judges to be impartial.
isn't it a shame that only badminton has that kind of problem!

Just for your information, BWF is under IOC's eyes and BWF will make sure the incidents like KO will not be repeated and I have been told that from semifinal onward , the umpires who are off duty will be delegated as line judges as well.......lets see if BWF can keep clean and let the best be the winner.......
