    I agree, Taufilk would never have acted like that.

    Anyway, Taufik and LD never got along anyway. Also, when LD beat LCW in AE2006 after a close match, LCW never showed any disrespect to LD.

    China players may be powerful and talented, but their attitude leaves a lot to be desired. Also, China will be holding the 2008 olympics. If their athletes cannot embrace the spirit of sportsmanship, and only wants to win at any cost, people will only be disgusted with them. China has to reinvent itself if it wants real respect from people, especially as it is becoming a big player in world affairs.

    China, despite winning 3 titles , has their fair share of embarrassment in this year Malaysia Open. Chen Hong losing to Boonsak Ponsana, Wang Lin and Xie Xingfang losing to Tracey Hallm (a big :eek: ), Fu Haifeng/Cai Yun losing to Chan Chong Ming/Koo Kien Keat and later also showed some bad sportmanship, and finally Lin Dan losing to Lee Chong Wei after having 8 match points. His complete disrespect tops it off!

    my view

    above was snipped from a sister thread...

    firstly, i'm a malaysian and i can actually feel for LD. patriotic as i am, i have to agree with most if not all the points given by eastdevil.

    putting myself in LD's position,

    smile - it'll be almost impossible if i've played a bad match. sportsmanship is about accepting defeat, picking yourself up and learn from it - not putting up a smile even though you're upset

    head band esq - i personally don't see it as disrespectful. it's a choice. put it on or not, it should be up to the players and they shouldn't be judged on. imagine if you're a vegetarian but served meat by a delighted host. do you keep your host happy? or do you decline politely?

    hand shakes - this is a tough call. do you shake an opponent's hands insincerely (if he felt that way at that time)? or do you choose not to, and stand your ground? it really depends on circumstances. weird enough, i have greater respect for the latter. doing something just because you're expected to and not exactly what you want to is weak and insincere.

    i just have a hunch that there are more reasons to why LD acted like he did. and pls don't get me wrong...between the 2 of them, i've always wanted LCW to win the match, and he did it with i quote, *magic*.

    Eh, where IBF's headquarters is located and disrespect on malaysian soil should not be related. Don't make these kind of things into political matters. Don't we have enough extremists in this region already?

    I think LD is a bit immature. Removing the medal,throwing racquets and refusing to wear a hat.I dont think it has anything to do with not respecting
    people's culture, he could have refused a Yonex hat or cowboy cap.

    i think he must really be unhappy to lose, he seemed to me to have given away the last few points, maybe he is protesting against something.

    Anyway, let time tell, I dont think it is an issue of disrespect.I know people who flatly refuse to indulge in anything because its against thier religion or customs in Malaysia.

    You are amazing! How could we be too sure just from interpreting some facial expressions or body language on TV and conclude the exact intentions? Sometimes, TV do not give the true and complete picture. Some benefit of doubt and gathering more reports and information would help us understand why someone did what or if someone actually did what. Reading LCW's facial expression is not easy, you know?

    At his age, he is immature. When you are at his age, are you perfectly mature?

    No, no offense. Just let us keep this as just badminton and not get to the nationalistic/etc realms.

    yep.. Typical of LD who shows no respect for players nor the officials..
    He was extremely cunning and disrespectful during that match.. even decided to take a towel break when leading 21-20 against LCW... which is not allowed....
    This thing has been goin on for a while and I hope he change this attitude because if this continues, there wont be room for improvement.. he cannot achieve his dream of olympic or worldchamp..

    All credit to LCW, but man i tell u thats one of the most hardcore and exciting 21 point badminton so far...
    I thought LCW was a goner but he scored 6 consecutive points and beat LD~
    True hero and champion~ CONGRATZZZ LCW~~~~~~~~

    Recently in the Asain Table tennis championships final Chen Qi lost to Wang Hao.

    Chen Qi showed his diappointment by throwing away his bat and kicking a courtside chair.

    The China TT association gave him ahiding and reminded him that in China's 50 year TT history this has never happened.
    Subsequently Chen Qi was sent to the countryside to do one yaer hard labour and had to make several public apologies.

    Let's hear it form China, I dont think Li Yong Bo was in Kuching,
    I'm sure he would know better than to allow such things to happen.
