    Literally means: an empty drum produces a loud noise...:D Yep, I agree with Gundala... But I suggest we just ignore that annoying person who writes mostly nonsense and fiction. Let's just continue to have fun with badminton shall we... Otherwise we will all get banned from BC because of that guy... Not worth it... ;)

    You got that right... ;) You're a smart guy...

    BC Limerick #2

    There is a member called vching
    who, quite smartly,has been thinking
    of how to get China to come clean
    but some BC members got mean
    because they are not up to his clear reasoning

    Well I listen all the arguments from both side so far. I have my own opinion.
    But all you listed above are not in my standard of sportsmanship, I don't care if it was done by who and who. I believe that you would agree in bottom of your heart that you don't mean to condone that unnecessary behavior if you can win without, do you ?
    We have to remember this just games which means at the end is all about entertainment. But you guys include all the associations that your support either China, Indonesia or Malaysia has lost the spirit of the sports "it is just entertainment".

    They are talking about individual event not team event. If you put it as no different, then is not worth watching for any finals where players come from the same country. The country with the same players in final has achieved his objective, WINNING ! is WINNING means everything ? may be to some but I am very disappointed if it so.
    No wonder so many athletes willing to take the risk to win or be shamed. Too many bad example like Marion Jones.

    eh... everyone making fun of me? :D :D :D
    completely agree, while it is not against the rules, it is against the spirit of the sport and notions of sportsmanship.

    they can't....they are just trying to scapegoat indonesia...
    i'm liking you!

    then it is against the spirit of the sport. Just because aussies sledge, it dosent mean that it makes the actions by China any more acceptable.

    I think the difference here is, other countries do suspicious walkovers when it will make big differences, but LYB wants to manipulate every single ranking point whenever possible.

    Those ppl who like such "team strategies" are fanatic fans. For example, LD - XXZ in 03 WC was determined by the first game (rumor has it that LD was really unhappy about that), and BCL - XXZ was totally fixed. I can't imagine a real badminton lover can still be happy watching these two videos after knowing the above. Besides it's really unfair to WCH stamina-wise.

    I guess he/she meant doing illegal services. LOL. Dannyang should watch hundreds of videos, watch every serve, obtain the ratio of legel-illegal services, and then come here and claim who is the worst "serve cheater" in badminton... :D

    Restricting #s of players is indeed not a fair practice. However, this is the best BWF can do. Does FIFA choose 32 "best" teams for World Cup? No! The teams in European Championships, are they all better than those not in it? Obviously no!

    You never read what LYB said each time after Chn players lost? Bad wind, bad stadium, bad umpire, noisy spectators, we lost because we dont care the result, blahblah.

    The players do not say much because LYB does all the talking.

    Good point! I almost forgot about LYB's rants.

    World Championships - XXF lost because bad wind in the court said LYB, Sudirman Cup - LD lost because he didn't care about the match already..

    Mr. Dannyang, how can you say Chinese players don't complain!
