    Fully agree. I also noticed when Bao went for the net, his leg actually crossed the line. But Lee CW did not noticed as he tried to retrieved the shuttle. If there is Eagle eye he should be able to challange that shot.

    Let's face it, biased line calls have been part and parcel of Chinese tournaments as far as i can remember. It's not likely to be different in OG08 so I think players should just go into a game vs chinese players with a -3 point handicap in mind.

    LCW sure didn't look 100% today but BCL was on form. Would have been a good match, shame.

    Bao didnt cheat, but he didn't display much sportsmanship either. He was pointing the shuttle in to the umpire when it was definitely out............CCTV5 didnt show all the "paid" line calls.............:mad::mad::mad:

    BaoCL won, all right. He played very well, ok.
    No disputes there.

    What can't be discounted is the psychological factor that the entire place is against you and that is already a disadvantage. Add to that the problem is biased line judgement and you get a major weight placed on your mind knowing that you now need to work twice as hard as the other guy to do it.

    LCW is only human with feelings, don't abuse the word 'professional' for 'robotic'.

    this time, bcl and lyb had a plan to beat lcw. The tactics were quite revealing. Bad calls or not, lcw was pick on by bcl. There were 3 controversial line calls and 1 net call. Yes, cooler's eyes saw 1 incorrect line call against lcw at 14-10, 2nd set. There wasn't good replay on the other disputed line calls so i can't tell.

    He may, but that I am afraid we will never know :-(

    3 incorrect calls makes 15-15 18-12.. quite a huge difference I would say..

    Bad line call happen everywhere but CHINA is the place it happen the most. I guess LCW isnt sending a message strong enough to IBF. This is typical Msian… Bolehlah! If he walks away like TH, the Message would be very strong!!!

    No disrespect to Bao, he was the better player among the two today. And I am sure he could have won this on his own skill. But the officiating is a farce, and I salute LCW for holding on to sportsmanship despite the inevitable outcome. You can see that if when call was good, LCW did not object.

    I hope Kido/Setiawan will not suffer the same fate. Unlike the women's game, the men's game require more precision in line officiating 'cos most winners are normally hit close or at the lines and at speed. Otherwise it is almost impossible to make a kill.

    Hahaha....I would have walked out straight away. No doubt about it. Anyway, credit to BCL he played well but the match would have been more interesting and tight if it were not of the bias/controversial line calls. I just don't understand why China BA need to do that. They have good players who can win fairly.
    As for OG 08 BWF need to do something to avoid controversial/bad line calls again else badminton would be a shameful sport in OG 08
