I have for years been feeling that the Olympics apart from it being very prestigious and not held very often is inferior to the other high profile badminton tournaments in its format. All the other Games (Asian, SEA, etc.) consists of a team event and an individual event. Team events usually bring lots of excitement and great matches. There are too many good players who cant participate in OG because of the rules, also having group play in the individual event is stupid imo, look what happened in London. The players can only partly be blamed, the format with group play was stupid in the first place. Anyway my idea is to include a team event and make the individual event a straght knock-out contest, that will save some time which can be used for the team event. My idea is to have the 8 highest ranked countries entered into the team event which will be a straight knock-out contest. Either there can be a mens and womens team event in best out of 5 matches (my preferred idea) or only a mixed team event also best out of five. The whole team competition will take 3 days only, day 1 QF, day 2 SF, day 3 Final + bronze match. Is this a good idea?
