    Exclamation What is more important: Badminton or Gear Shopping?


    While rooting around here on BC, it struck me. Is the sheer popularity of the equipment and racket sections of this site telling as to the commercialism of the game. Have we reached a point whereby rackets and other equipment are more important than the game itself? For me Badminton comes first, kit next.

    I suppose what I am asking here is: is the act of buying and searching for gear more important to most than the concept of the game itself? Perhaps a moderator or administrator can help me set up an anonymous poll to just gauge the truth on the matter? If so, please do answer in the most honest way, just so we can get an honest idea.




    Btw: No offence is intended to anyone from this, I myslef love reading the equipement section etc, but I am just wondering if other people actually prefer that to the actual game

    No.

    The hottest area in the forum remains to be tournaments (The 2009 forum already saw 7k threads with 477 posts). The entire equipment subforum has more threads but less than 300k posts. The 2nd hottest subforum is "Places to play" with 8.8k threads and 173k posts. Rackets is just 8k threads with 134k posts.

    Like you, most forum participants are interested in reading and discussing equipment but there is no evidence that they are any less interested in the game. Even the racket discussions talks about how a racket plays -- its still about the game.
