    Badminton is non-contact sport so it should be non-violent.

    I thought so all along until now when it suddenly dawned on me that taunting could be a prelude to violence as it had on this unfortunate occasion (not forgetting the previous occasion about a decade ago involving a player with a spectator).

    Similarly few years ago, a player tried to attack korean coach as well as attacking his own coach in some other occasion to show his agony.

    The way Mannepong was running away from Bodin and not defending himself, it'd seem that he most likely did the taunting and trash talking first. Too bad the umpire didn't understand Thai, so all he could do is just warn both sides to desist. But hopefully an analysis by a Thai translator of the courtside audio and video during the game and at the change of ends would shine a light on what was said to trigger such an unfortunate incident.

    I have a gut feeling that Mannepong knew which buttons to press on Bodin, as he was his ex partner for a few years, so he just provoked Bodin, knowing full well that the umpire wouldn't understand a word of what was said.

    Actually, I quite agree with what you just said! It takes 2 hands to clap.

    And while on the subject, I think it was a good thing that Bodin apologized to his country for his behaviour. Now, I do quite strongly feel that it remains for both Bodin and Maneepong to apologize to the host country and to Vancouver in particular, for abusing the hospitality given them with their shabby performance and public violence, and bringing the Canadian Open such notoriety.

    Yep. All all of that'd be low-intensity trolling. ;)

    Eh? I don't think that's trolling nor off topic. :p That was the truth... just saying out loud who they were for the benefit of others who don't know, since the previous posters were afraid to name them. :p

    I think the spectator or even officials rather shock and don't know what to react. Because it's very rare situation compared to say Football.
