    in addition to restrict the number of players representing the same country, IBF should restrict the number of walkovers for each country as well.
    that will be cool. :D

    perhaps the game between Hafiz and LCW was fixed.
    Hafiz could get more points.

    MS MO SEMI FINALS 2007 Kenneth lost to Gade...
    thats semis...

    in the 1990s when Indo dominated badminton, they didn't have walkovers... they won it on equal grounds with other opponents...

    again, making a mockery of the issue. I have no problems with China winning 4/5 gold, although I think its a bit boring....
    walkovers should not happen.... I think its against the spirit of the game...

    9,596,960 sqkm Vs 329,750 sqkm & 1,919,440 sqkm !!!

    Why would it be 'unsually large'? :cool:

    Consider this:
    China is 29.1 times larger than Malaysia.
    China is 4.99 times larger than Indonesia.
    It's also 4.27 times larger than Malaysia + Indonesia.

    I'd say that China is entitled, at the minimum, to 500% more. :D

    I admit I have been a bit inflammatory in accusing China of cheating, although I didn't actually say that...

    I just want to say this:
    walkovers: sure, China is allowed to give walkovers. But is this really within the spirit of badminton? Is this best for the development of badminton

    officials from same country: I still think this should be changed. Officials from same country should not be officials in which participants are from their country

    3SS 1 GP in China - Its too many...

    unfortunately, if you were to go by population, then the Americas and Africa have no badminton SS or GP GOLDS!!!

    I don't think you're referring to China's wins at the 2007 Japan Open :D

    By the way... what, who or where is this wakakakakwkakwkakwa? :rolleyes:

    and the quota system goes by the country, not the population.

    Er, that's not population.
    That's geographical area. :D

    i know for a fact that africa has 700 million people.
    south america has 400 million people
    north america has 500 million people

    we should go by population and not geographical area

    in the end, only the winners will be remembered throughout the history, not someone who has a good sportsmanship and has been constantly losing. i bet noone will remember KBH after 30 yrs time though he is a player with good sportsmanship. THE point here is TO WIN.

    Regarding those walkovers, it is really up to CHN team to decide, to give walkover or not, it is none of our business. As CHN team knows that only winners are entitled into the hall of fame in badminton history.

    1,321,851,888 Vs 24,821,286 & 234,693,997

    Um, see what it's like on the basis of population: :cool:

    Consider this:
    China has 53 times more people than Malaysia.
    China has 5.6 times more people than Indonesia.
    It also has 5.09 times more people than Malaysia + Indonesia.

    I'd now say that China is entitled, at the minimum, to 510% more. :D :D

    why would you want to go by geographical area? So because Alaska is so big, it should have a tournament?
