    Thumbs down Would you boo at court officals when they make terrible line calls?

    .
    As a spectator at a tournament, would you boo (to show contempt, scorn, or disapproval) at court officals when they make terrible line calls?

    I would; Just to wake them up.

    Have a look at this video (from ye333);

    The reason umpires can now overrule is to combat this kind of situation.

    I have a question for you: Have you ever sat on a line, or in the umpires chair?

    Well umpires have always had the possibility to combat things like this, it was just a bit harder before.
    Since you had to convince the referee to replace the line judge, which you still have the possibility to do.
    But it is no easy task

    What's more hilarious is the reaction of the commentators to how far out the bird was during the slo-mo replay. They were trying so hard not to burst a lung.

    I would advocate public stoning to teach such officials a lesson

    Yes, I have; Many, many times.

    I would say that it is not an easy job to do when I am feeling tired and wanting to leave the chair (to wake up with a cup of coffee before I return to such a sedentary job).

    I was also surprised that the commentators needed a slow-motion replay when the shuttlecock hit the floor so far out from the court.

    Hahaha...... A public shuttlecock execution?

    It would be cruel, but then it could be quite an entertainment for spectators at the venue.

    I think the commentators were so stunned they had to do a double take. You could hear in their voices and sarcastic laughs that they couldn't believe such a call had been made.

    Trust me, I thought the commentators did very well to remain as professional as they did. At one point I thought they were going to ROFL.

    i think the commentator did a good job. one of them immediately noticed that bad call, commented on it, and then really burst into laughter on the replay. and after that, calmly says the umpire correctly overruled the call.

    I wouldn't boo them, but I would definately make a point of giving them an evil glare or something. You never know they might be generous on the next point for you, or not.
    I would never criticise them if they got a very tight linecall wrong, especially down the side tramlines on a fast smash.

    I would disagree.

    If it's OUT, it's OUT.

    And if it's IN, it's IN.

    I would hope that line judge would not call the next shot IN if it was OUT (in order to correct his previous mistake).

    It's Korean Open and the line call is in favour of the Koreans. What do you expect?

    I've seen line judges replaced before. Is there a guideline for it? I would think two bad calls needs a replacement linesman.

    Same exclamation as commentators on watching the replay ; "Waaaah'.

    Isn't there a rule nowadays that all court officials must be neutral or is it just for umpires and service judges?

    I would agree that "two bad calls needs a replacement linesman".

    That's why we should boo to make the tournament referee aware of what we spectators think. I was surprised that the INA players accepted it with a smile.
