maybe bwf can do a little tricks like putting those big events during cbl season. That will pull them out.

Actually leagues are good for a certain sports. Just look at football for example.

certainly hope you mean china badminton super league
yes, its going to be an attraction to the top players in the world
where money is concern, just appear in the league will earn 6 digit $£€¥
taufik for one has signed
wonder who is next...
say, if lcw sign up... hmmm it would be more interesting..
between may and august lin dan, taufik, chen jin in fact all china players and lcw playing in cbsl?
imagine next year tickets sale for those bwf premier and super series seasons..oopst!

ok.. agreed. bwf is now made irrelevant... time for officials to pack their bags and go home. Maybe go to china to find work. lol. I doubt the chinese want them.

With clubs there will be more support of the players regardless of nation

certain top 8 if i am not wrong
and that would be from bwf ranking.
so as to answer to the title of the thread,
i say no, csl is not killin of ss
pro players needs to stay on top of that ranking in order to be able to play in csl.
well, son just my opinion.lol

yes, baby league now
probably when it grows bigger
then bwf ss or ps or zs will not matter
then it would be killing them off

Don't get me wrong. IT IS ok to set up clubs or a league.
BUT, lets hope that the big players still play in the big SS events so that their fans can cherish and get to see them play.
This means, not at the expense of the world league. Like football, its ok to have a league, then big players also plays in euro and world up.
Hopefully badminton like cbsl will not have such issues where players got better money there (not that bad really) and tired (pulls out of SS).
Do you get what I am getting to? That is to ask china (or those players int the league) not to be selfish.

One thing for sure, during OG qualification season (top 16 for singles, top 8 for doubles) and WC qualification(top ???), participation in SS, GP Gold will be in full swing. In between, less.
