Discussion in 'Korea Open / Hong Kong Open 2006' started by taufik-ist, Aug 31, 2006.
Well you do not need to apologize on behalf of Taufik. I think he will not like it for sure.
Haven't we seen this action by Taufik before??..
sigh, i actually found out last night, just before i went offline, abt what happened in the TH vs. LD match...but didn't bother to write anything..
Well, i think this sums it up pretty good...We don't know what went on in his mind at that time, but whatever it was, it surely ticked him off. I would venture to say his "trauma" from last week's Korea Open, where the same old controversy came up, probably lingered back.
Anyways, Taufik has been, is and will be like that..He will not change, even if he wins 1 or 2 Olympic or World Championships..
The only person and/or people i felt sorry for are his opponent(this time it was LinDan) and the spectators watching the match..The latter as if it's almost they've got "ripped off"..
Looking at the recent appearances and participations, I don't know if he'll be ready for the WC..Who knows which Taufik will show up?!?!..
unfortunately, there wasn't an offical taping on the match.
coaches with dv cams may have it!
Taufik sets world record for the quickest loss (21pt system).
Nothing to be proud of, but it is another record.
..and i wonder what kind of explanation he'll give to the top PBSI brass this time??..
taufik-ist, you are a truly hardcore fan of TH. By the way, did you get permission from him before volunteering the apology? Otherwise, he might be mad at you next thinking "who says its my fault" : )
Red, did your dv cam manage to record the match?
taufik-ist, you can blame PBSI for this. They spoilt Taufik so much that they just killed his career completely. PBSI should have seen this coming and do something before it got worse but no, they even spoilt him further by giving him more money and lands. Sad.
Lol, yeah it certainly did spark some "enthusiastic discussion" .
Taufik was NOT wrong!
Taufik is a VICTIM!
And how did you arrive at this conclusion, exactly?
With those chilidsh attitude, I hope he retires right now.
1. The committee has failed to appoint good linemen/women.
2. This is a 6* event.
3. The linemen/women must be "alert" (that's their job).
4. If the linemen/women have the right to change their decision, then Taufik has also the right to protest it.
5. The committee has failed to anticipate this kind of controversies by provided instant video replay facilities to resolve the problem.
6. It is TH's right to be treated fairly.
1. The linelady/umpire/referee/committee should made a public appology for this incident, not TH. They should admit that they have made a mistake. Did they?
2. Players are not "gladiators" who must play to the satisfaction of the spectators. They must also be protected
3. TH was only reacting.
And many others, I have a meeting to attend. WIll continue...
Hmm, I don't believe you were this vocal about fair play when the other players (eg. Peter Gade, Lin Dan, Bao Chunlai, etc...) received some bad lines calls. I think you need to tone down a little bit as Taufik was clearly wrong in this situation. Even if the shuttle went out and the linesjudege called it out, he should have just continued after that one bad call. He's a "professional" athlete for god sakes but after this incident I don't know if he should be called "professional" anymore.
Other emotional/childish reponses such as crying after winning a match is fine but this is unacceptable. Taufik needs to think about his actions and the consequences and how they affect other people and not just for himself because that's just plain SELFISH!!
out of all your post about supporting TH, this one does made me laugh
thanks for the entertainment
how about let TH advance up to QF b/c line judge is "wrong(from yrou perspective)"
It's not the people that see Taufik as doing something wrong or harmful to the sport that annoy me. I can respect that. It's this drama queen sort of attitude that I really hate. Someone walked off a court... and you think they should retire because of it? Talk about way over the top.
It would be nice for Taufik to make a public apology or something, but you're going overboard.
totaly agree. apology for the fans will be just appropriate
1. show me an Indonesia Open where no bad calls ever made
2. Yes, 6*, taufik should show some class.
3. She was alerted, that is why she made the correction right away. Alertness and nervousness are very different. Over alertness causes nervousness. If she was not alert, she would stick with her initial call or make a ‘unseen’ call. She was too alert if i may say as an ex-line judge.
4. go ahead and protest, don’t concede.
5. Incorrect. All teams know the judging standard used before entering tournaments. By entering the HK Open, u have agreed to abide by its and IBF rules. All players are treated the same way. I never seen HK officials favored any particular country. There are (or were) lots of taufik fans from the HK side too.
6. How was taufik not treated fairly, official’s conducts were by the book. More importantly, I THINK THE SPECTATORS AND THE SPONSORS should be treated fairly. They footed the bills and taufik played for monies.
Thanks for the reply Cooler, you saved me a post. Come to think about it, there's no need to post. If people cannot understand what Taufik did was wrong, there's no point nor use in trying to influence them anyway. They just don't get it.
Please note (as I'm sure the others here expressing their dismay with Taufik have the same/similar stance), I would feel the same if any other player reacted the way Taufik reacted. This is not a specific attack on Taufik. In fact, I'm pro-Taufik, hoping Taufik would beat Lin Dan in the HK Open.
So again, I am not singling out Taufik nor being biased against him. The fact is what he did was unprofessional. If any other player did this, I would be all over him/her as well.
Anyway, no news about 'TH's incident' that reports in INA media/press at sport column today. Quoted from JakartaPost -- TH retired trailing 4-1 in the first game of the match. The tournament's website didn't give a reason for his retirement.--the end. I guess, it's definitely embarrassing action that should not reported completely. This 'big-head' INA's famous shuttler wants to showed he was in the right side at that moment and never want accepted another opinion including wrong line-call.It's just an idiot decision that can make everyone laughing because he walked-out not in critical point and too early to know who can advance to last four although LD lead 4-1 at 1st set (still far from match point).2 specific identity of TH: emotional and controversy.Certainly, TH never regret for this situation because he isn't down-to-earth person type.
i also haven't seen anything either on other newspaper websites...it might not be a "big" deal now, but wait til the public slowly finds out abt it...Or maybe they haven't seen the pics, posted here, of the incident..
