Separate names with a comma.

That's why it's called badminton, instead of goodminton.
That is definitely bad attention.
We have to face it that there are only a few things that would ever break badminton into the general interest of the sports media in Canada:
1) Change the rules of conduct to those of lacrosse.
2) Make the dress code identical to beach volleyball.
3) Force all players to change their names to something which our language-challenged sports announcers can pronounce when drunk (and with a mouth full of cheesy nachos).
Until then, our sport will get broad media attention only when players' behaviour is exactly opposite to that which makes badminton great.
Global TV was here at BV today doing interviews including one with Luke who is leading the kids summer camp here as well as was playing in the Canada open and had a firsthand account of what happened. Should be on at 6:00 on channel 11
Thanks for the translation. Now we are all getting a clearer picture of the story behind. I am curious, what did Bodin meant by 'good badminton'? Wasn't Jonglit serious enough in the first game? But Jonglit and partner won the first game 21-12.
Looks like Shaw Cable finally made its copy of the video available to the news networks!
Found this version.
^ yep, that's the longer version that derrick ng posted previous page
Ah I see, I kept getting error for that link.
The scene actually looks really comical chasing around like that (benny hill theme should be in background) untill of course Bodin caught him. He was like a wild animal, something more than usual insults have been said before.
Second Chance please
We make mistakes, and when provoked, we tend to make more mistakes.
Both ex-partners provoked each other right from the beginning that resulted in the unruly fiasco that ensued. Now we know the story behind the outrage.
Before this incident and the unfortunate separation, Bodin and Maneepong gave us promises of an excellent Thai MD pair that can shake the badminton world, together with the huge progress made in their women's singles department, as demonstrated here by WS champion Nichaon Jindapon.
Alas this is not to be although with scratch partners, both B and M entered the MD final, an indication of their talent despite adverse circumstances.
We were shown such a beautiful picture of Bodin and his family at this tournament. Who would have thought that the calm Bodin would have risked everything at the peak moment of provocation?
Spare a thought for Bodin and his young family. Give him a second chance and mete out a lesser punishment, which he deserves and as a reminder that such behaviour is uncalled for in the sports world, more so in the refined game of badminton.
Maneepong should not escape scot-free either.
Unfortunately for Bodin, this is unprecedented and as such for BWF, will require an unprecedented judgment. Even to set an example and a deterrent for any future occurrence.
By wording, it was ‘Play good’ which can be interpreted in various ways depending on the speaker's intention. It can be playing politely, under the rules etc..
Btw, Maneepong's phone interview earlier said Bodin was dissatisfied with his side's loud cheering when getting a point and saying many times throughout the game about a boxing round after the match.
Badminton ex-partners face lifetime ban after brawl
The Nation July 23, 2013
Two former badminton doubles partners were involved in a bizarre fight during the men's doubles final at the Canadian Open on Sunday - an act of misconduct that Badminton Association of Thailand president Charoen Wattanasin said could lead to lifetime bans if imposed on the players by the International Badminton Federation (IBF).
...According to the "Morning News" show on Channel 3, Maneepong said Bodin became infuriated when the former made a loud noise after winning a point during the match. The two reportedly provoked each other with vulgar language from that point on. Maneepong said Bodin challenged him to a fight several times during the first game, which was won by Maneepong and Nipitphon 21-12.
Bodin later attempted to clarify the incident and expressed regret that it occurred. "I was struck on the ear with a racquet [by Maneepong]. My ear was cut and it bled. I lost my senses. I feel sorry to have caused this stain on [Thailand's] reputation. I take full responsibility and want this all to end here," he said in a clip broadcast on Channel 3.
An initial investigation of the incident by tournament officials determined that Bodin started the fight. As a result, they awarded the title to Maneepong and Nipitphon.
However, according to Bodin's partner Pakkawat, Maneepong started the whole thing by cursing his ex-partner, causing a fuming Bodin to land the first blow. He said Maneepong replied by hitting his former buddy with a racquet. According to the Vancouver Sun newspaper, Bodin needed two stitches to his right ear.
"If you [only] saw the clip, Bodin appears absolutely guilty. But no one saw what happened before that. Maneepong smashed Bodin with a racquet and left him bloody. That's why [Bodin] chased after [Maneepong] as can be seen in the clip," Pakkawat said
...Charoen said on Facebook he had never seen anything like this in his 58 years on the circuit. The badminton boss said he would await a report from the IBF, which will be used as a basis for action to be taken against the guilty parties.
"This is a shame for the badminton circuits. The International Badminton Federation will take this very seriously. From the clip, Bodin appears to be the guilty party and there's a high possibility he could face a lifetime ban. However, to be fair to both parties, we'll have to wait to hear from the IBF."

Badminton: Former Thai doubles partners brawl on court, one allegedly hit with racket
The Straits Times
Published on Jul 22, 2013
VANCOUVER (AP) - The Badminton World Federation has launched an investigation after a fight broke out between two former partners at the Canada Open doubles final on Sunday.
During a change of ends Sunday, Thai shuttler Bodin Issara lunged at Maneepong Jongjit, chasing him onto a neighboring court before punching him several times.
Issara was dragged away and held down by coaches and tournament staff, while his partner, Pakkawat Vilailak, escorted a now shirtless Jongjit off court.
Issara, who needed two stitches, claims Jongjit hit him with a badminton racket. The pair had already received a warning from the referee following a verbal exchange.

Almost exactly 2 years ago, here is what Raphael reported in Badzine:
Malaysian back-up men’s singles shuttler Tan Chun Seang was banned for a 2-year period from any competitions in Asia after he walked out of the national team to become an independent player according the July 1st edition of The Star.
Now, almost 2 years later, TCS scored his title win at the Canadian Open!
This is not the face that I know of TCS. Has he changed that much?
That negative incident brought out badminton in the news, sadly
Yeah, the pix is Tommy Sugiarto not Tan CS.
