    It seems like BoMo have some differences with the Danish badminton association. BoMo want to participate the Indish league but Badminton Denmark wants them to prepare for the WC. The players also have stated that they are willing to become Swedes if the association doesn't allow them to play.

    Pretty harsh situation over there.

    But it is not just them it now has been revealed. Also Fischer, Pedersen and Juhl. They have been offered to play in the Indian badminton league, for good money I'm sure, but it is being held before the World Championships and conflicts with the carefully designed training program the federation have set up for that period in preparation for the WC. As possible consequence of playing anyway the federation have "mentioned" leaving them out of the Sudirman Cup squad and individual World Championship ...
    All 3 pairs are in the twilight of their playing careers so are probably looking at cashing in for retirement. Kind of stabbing the Danish system in the back seeing as they paid for the coaching and funded their development.

    It's not like they pay wages but from a federations point of view I'm sure results at WC are quite important for Olympic funding by the government, if not for this cycle then perhaps for the next ...
    In any case, the problem has solved itself with the tournament in India changing the date for whatever reason (probably more complaints about the date it was scheduled?) and no longer conflicts with the WC preparations.

    In the meanwhile Boe & Mogensen had signed a new 4-year deal with Yonex that they hope will take them to Rio. A Danish newspaper called Extrabladet estimates their income at $350,000 USD a year. Whether or not that includes an approximate $45,000 a year from their clubs is not sure.

    Based on what and when is also not mentioned since the new deal might be worth more, the same or less than the previous ...

    Found the match today against Liu/Qiu quite entertaining, especially the last point of the match.
    Normally finding the "delay tactic" extremely annoying, I found it particularly entertaining how Liu drew out the little break so dramatically. The irony of the situation makes it hysterical.
    And that kids, is situational irony in a nut shell.
    (now now, this is not to start a flame war, big fan of the dane's play style, just not their antics on court. Hear they're great to their fans off court)

    Yeap.. the danes seems to have a difficult time playing the koreans. Perhaps the korean's fast, flat game does not sit well with the danish style.

    i think the koreans change their tactics because the danes have a 3-0 record against the koreans...now of course 4-0...and the danes did not play their best...

    I believe they (or Boe) once mentioned they find the Indonesian pairs the most difficult because of their variation.
