I beg your pardon, where did you get that impression from? Certainly not from me as I'm against blind loyalty. I believe the same goes to CBA who takes constructive criticism and practises self-criticism, if I'm not wrong. Anyway, I'm not their spokesman, my humble opinions are formed from my own reading and analyses, eg from Tang Xianhu's words such as (if I may paraphrase from memory) when he said it's not the coach that is super and should be given all the credit but the players themselves willing to work hard and have the right attitude that is key to success, of course, not discounting natural talent which to him is by itself not enough. Talking about criticisms, it is none other than Li Yongbo himself in the whole of CBA who often or more than occasionally comes under quite a bit of flak. The players are also not spared, particularly WSX whom we know was receiving a lot of brickbats from before the London Olympics to as recent as the KOR Open 2013. Well, if you think that CBA's emphasis on the team spirit and putting Nation before self is no good, then I'd say, please take into account China's national situation (this is a big topic which I'm reluctant to delve into here) and the current state of professional badminton the world over ( I was told certain associations are having to skip a few tournaments for lack of funds).I'd go so far as to say this, that no organization can demand blind obedience and total submission without paying a heavy price for it - it's counter-productive and no way can it strives towards excellence whether it be in sports, the creative arts,music or running a business, the exception is in the military (or the cults but we know the outcome). Regarding standardized training, to my limited knowledge, I'd say it is necessary and the right thing to do for a large part of it for the sake of efficiency and effectiveness. But this cannot be applied to styles of play and shouldn't even be attempted as each player is unique in terms of his/her physical and mental make-up including individual life experiences and age. In fact,among the CHN MS, Chen Jin and Du Pengyu (though he is trying to transition to a more attacking game) are considered the rallying type, what I call 'grinders' if you know what I mean, whereas Lin Dan and Chen Long and now Wang Zhengming, are the aggressive (even explosive) attacking players. And among CHN WS, who could be more different than Wang Shixian,practically a one of a kind player. Come to think of it, if all the CHN MS can be standardized to play really like a Lin Dan or Chen Long or Lee CW, why not, that'd be great, isn't it?! Just a friendly exchange of views, nothing personal. Thanks.
