TH vs LIN DAN (once and for all)
I had this crazy idea. With so much arguments about who is superior in so many threads and resulting in some being closed, why dont we BC members try something maybe not done before?
Why dont we try to set up a 1 off match winner takes all between TH and LD. Lets say a USD10,000.00 prize money (maybe from sponsor) PLUS each of TH and LD can put their own money on the line (additional wager) for more pressure. This could be like an exhibition match with a lot at stake (financially and name sake). The sponsor can earn from TV rights and tickets.
Some BC members know TH and LD personally. We can try to ask them if they are willing to do this. This will not be an WBF event.
Who knows? Maybe BC will make history!!
Kwun, Khrisna, Huangkwokhau, any comments?

You wanna see LD do to TH like what he did to LCW in OG2008 final?

this is a 1 off match and with so much at stake, TH might get extra motivation to shape up. Anyway as i said in the beginning, "its a crazy idea"

Would like to agree if u suggested this few months ago.

There's nothing to prove. Taufik didn't even make it past the round of 32. His teammate, Sony Dwi Kuncoro at least made it to the quarterfinal against Lee Chong Wei, where he was.., well, yea.

Taufik had his own time.He is a world beater in that period.Just how Lin dan had experienced by now.
They are both respected.
Just in 2008,taufik is no longer world beater.His 1st round knock out proved it.
how he lost the game..i couldnt imagine that was taufik.
that is why we couldnt compare taufik and lin dan now.one is on the top of the hill ,one is on the bottom

I was merely basing my opinion on their Olympic performances, as this thread was posted today.

dont think it will be done succesfully.

Really, though, I don't think that athletes of their caliber need to be or are so avaricious. We needn't incite the sordid elements of humanity.

Um, is George Best or Pele or Ronaldinho the greater player?
Neither Taufik Hidayat nor Lin Dan needs to prove anything
Without doubt, both of them are exceptionally gifted players.
In their many confrontations, each has managed to upstage the other.
Nothing further will be established by pitting them against each other in one more match

Maybe it would be interesting if we had a time machine... but as it stands *currently* it wouldn't even last 30 minutes I bet .

as i said its a "crazy idea". but if they had to put their own money on the table as extra bet (on top of the sponsor's prize) then it might be a different outcome. the casual players like us knows how a can of pocari (as a bet) can make someone a different player. some players can be good but when their own money is at stake its completely different. again its a crazy idea.

Thats a good idea.........

I feel sorry for the people betting for TH.. ;(
TH is in bad form, it would not be a good idea to compare him with a fitter LD.
Lin Dan beat everyone in 2 straight sets in OG.
Peter Gade, Lee Chong Wei, Chen Jin gave it their all & cannot win a set off LD.
