THere have been China fans who have said other countries will also do the same if they had that number of good players, many times it's been discussed that other countries would not & dare not, due to the serious consequences if reported(has happened). Because if get caught, the player will have to bear the guilt himself/herself, the coach & official can wash hands say they dunno although it's coach instruction. That's democracy, more individualistic
Let's say Zhou Mi was not asked to give way to Zhang Nang in 2004 OG(ZN was considered to have better chance than Zhou Mi) and lets say Zhou Mi beat ZN during 2004 OG. Then lets say Zhou Mi lost in the finals of 2004. She could have won yes, she could have also lost.

Betting or match fixing. Anything goes man.. lol.

Why not allow our players to play/perform their best all the time?

Don't get me wrong I love the LD vs. LCW meets.. But lets face it, these meetings are VERY exciting on big occations but not THAT exciting (at least not to me) during a std. SS-event.
I will go to Denmark Open in a few weeks, and frankly I would not feel any frustration if I get "robbed" of a semi between LD and CL in DK as well.
So I will not be very upset about that, I think there will be plenty of more exciting games to watch!! From the discussion it seems you will be more pissed of when you "sit with your arse on the chair, butt naked scratching itchy balls watching for free live streaming" :-)
As a badminton fan I do not go to DO just to watch a LD vs. LCW final. I am intelligent enough to understand that both players will consider this tournament as important as OG, WC etc.. For these players these SS torunaments are "just another day on the job".. basically.. For me as a fan it is more exciting to watch Victor Axelsen, JOs comeback after injury.. If CJ will be able to give LCW a fight, If WZM can give Gade some run for the money on his home tournament etc. etc. So many great matches to look forward to apart from yet another LCW vs. LD exhibition..

I guess to each his own that you are okay with match fixing, convenient WO, faking injury (if that is proven true) and you are entitled to your views.
It is just my expression of saying '"sit with your arse on the chair, butt naked scratching itchy balls watching for free live streaming" to posters, maybe, maybe including you, who support WO, faking injury, match fixing, cos you are not the paying-ticket fans and nothing to lose, just free punching into your keyboard in Sweden. BTW, you are not alone of this, you have been around BC since 2003 and you would know there are many posters who also support your views on this topic.
But you also cut of my next sentence 'it cost us nothing, so who care about match fixing, WO or players putting on a show'. That's right, I could not care less cos' I did not pay to see the game nor did I stay late into the night life streaming, and neither would I get excited as I do not bet, and have nothing financial to gain whether LCW wins or not. I am more worried how my portfolio is doing if Europe crashed.
This baddy thingie does not bother me, as I always said from past postings 'life is too short and precious to worry and bitch on everything and baddy is the least of my priority'. Like I say, it is a free world, we all agree to disagree, and you are definitely entitled to your views and conviction on WO and match fixing (no breaking BWF rules), faking injury (cannot prove it). I have no problem with that.
Say Hi to those Scandinavian chicks, OTB is coming to Sweden one of these days to check them out, err, I mean to check out the country, cheers.

I also think the "advantages" of "not playing" are highly exhaggerated, and the dissadvantages are totally overlooked.
To me it seems many fans are "outraged" all the time regardless of results, as long as there is a player from China who takes the gold!
If its a WO, then these fans never gives it any benefit of a doubt, when the players is from China (even if you even can see the twisted ankle on the replays :-).. they blame CGI, acting etc. If the match is really tight they say it is staged to look "real".. If the lower ranked Chineese wins, then it is team-order to help the favourite.. If the lower ranked player on the other hand wins, then it is still of course a team-order to boost rating/seeding etc. etc.. So It will not really be easy to stop the most vocal critics once the notion has been set that there is "disshonesty" in the team.. If they beleive the match is fixed or the injury was faked, they will go on believing that regardles if it is true or not...
Summertime in Sweden is perfect for chick-hunting :-) And more sun and warm weather makes it easer to spot them.. err I mean enjoy the beautiful nature ...

let's all go packed up and watch golf
integrity, sportsmanship vs the lure of money
in any sport, there is always some willing takers but this does NOT mean it's OK.
