    I think BWF's biggest question now is how to prevent this from happening again. Let's assume a 1 or 2 year suspension is given out to both of them. Will things have cooled down by then if those 2 face off again in another tournament?

    After both players were split up from the fight, there was also another fight in the practice court area according to some witnesses.

    ^ And this is wherein lies the importance of Bodin and Mannepong coming out quickly and publicly together to apologize for their behavior.

    The sooner they do this, the better the damage control, and the lesser chance of BWF needing to resort to impose stiff penalties (read lifetime bans) even just for the sake of setting an example for simple deterrence.

    One of the recently uploaded videos has Yi Tai of China playing against Kaori Imabeppu of Japan. I couldn't help but notice that Yi Tai was not in China team colours.

    Is she an independent player from China? She does not appear to have even a ranking history or a BWF rank or player ID. Strange...

    I'm ASSUMING she recently moved to Canada from CHN or something and still must register under the Chinese flag.

    The game would not be completed (though eventually disqualified) if the black cards were not rescinded.

    According to Kyle Hunter of Badminton Canada from one of the videos, the previous black cards were issued to
    1. an athlete swearing at an umpire (likely Scott Evans)
    2. an athlete getting into a verbal shouting match with the opposing coach

    ^ Whoa, that's pretty harsh. Should've swore at the ump and ref too if he knew racket throwing would earn a DQ. ;)

    I think there has been more than 2. Maybe 2 that are known. I talked to the chair of USAB court officials' group who is a Confederationally certificated referee and he said he has given out a black card before. I forgot the name of the player though. I think it was an international level tournament in South America. (Can't remember clearly)

    if the two continued to fight outside the court area afterwards, i think life time ban is appropriate for both.

    Life time ban is definitely too much to ask for. 1 or 2 year ban is enough. Bodin has apologised the people for his behaviour on court. Let's wait for BWF to come up with a solution regarding this matter .

    I say 4 years ban. At least.

    The OG is a 4-year cycle and it is the one event all players keep trying to get into. Will do anything to qualify for. If they know they will jeopardize their chances of getting to the next OG with any violent behaviour etc, that may make them behave. Anything else will allow for their emotions to take priority more easily.

    At the same time, it will still allow them a few years of pro-level play before they reach an age when they need to retire.

    And they need to be banned from all the leagues as well. That is very important, seeing as how they could easily make enough money just doing the leagues and thumb their noses at the BWF circuit. The objective of punishment would be lost.
