    I wish for members to discuss this issue here, without any name calling, because we have seen it being done intentionally all the time....even though some quarters may not readily admit it.

    What can be done? Can WBF do anything abt it? Maybe even if there is any legislation against it, the weaker team may just play not to their heart out to lose.....but what other steps can be done to prevent this?

    Your thoughts on this?

    I agree with Indra.
    Most of walkover players come from China.

    Only way to 100% get rid of match-fixing would be to max allow 2 players per country ("team") in a superseries tournament, and never on the same side in the draw....

    But this would make me sad as well.. espeically for the great Chineese players.. But I am sure WBF will be forced to introduce something like that if sportsmanship doesn't prevail..

    An option to allow for more than 2 participants for country would have to only let 2 persons per country enter the main torunament, but these 2 could be decided by a national pre-qualification event in the same tournament..

    Yes...just ignore any tournament, be it SS or non-SS, held by China...

    Let them (Chinese Team) play by themselves...

    Ur quote will be highly debactable by the Chinese fans :cool:
    One of the main reason which BWF can't act much on the "RENOWNED" match fixing tactics by China is becoz the rules limitation for only 2 players per country or the max up to 3 for the Olympic spot. Just my thought...

    haiya.... i've called for BWF to investigate before.... from my blog... but then I got flagellated for doing that in BC forum. Everyone asked me to drop the issue. Sure enough, another blatant attack on the integrity of the sport occurs.

    I said it before, and I say it again, BWF has to investigate China. Then act on the investigation results.

    Maybe BWF can have a rule like this:
    If players from the same country walk, then the culprits will be barred from following 2 successive SS tournaments to give them 'time to recuperate from walking'.No need for MC.
