    If no one watches, the players don't earn the sponsors money, so they stop sponsoring stuff...so the viewers are important. Not above anything else, but I have yet to come across any evidence that screaming at your absolute loudest is necessary in any way. While I don't wish injuries upon any player, I sure enjoyed the time Marin was not around. Finally able to watch WS without risking permanent hearing loss.

    I for one don't watch Marin matches. So that's a viewer lost right there. No one is of course not meant literally, but strong drops in viewership would be enough for lots of sponsors to jump ship.

    No one's talking about banning players. The idea is introducing a rule that forbids screaming too loudly. Same as any other rule, you'd initially get warned for breaking it, not disqualified.

    Too many (players do that) to ban (the screaming). If they ban, it will affect too much. Better let them be nature than a contest so you think you can scream

    In tennis, umpire try to keep the audience be quiet before the play so players can be focus. Badminton should do the same

    Comfortable players or comfortable audience. Players are those who made the match. Audience? No big view drop threat yet

    I think I last about 10 minutes before I get sick of it.

    The thing is, it's not inside the rallies. It's after the rallies. I'm not calling for them to have to change a single thing about the way they actually play the game. Unless there's something about women's physiology that prevents them from playing well without screaming, then I couldn't see it as a justified behaviour. Because somehow almost every other player from every discipline does just fine without screaming. They literally have rules about their towel not hanging over the basket, and a player can get in trouble for doing so, because it compromises the sponsorship deals of that tournament. Does a towel hanging out impact their play? Not at all, but it's code of conduct.

    If a discipline becomes physically repulsive to watch because of the behaviour of its participants, there is clearly a problem.

    almost every players scream a bit or a lot. And they does just fine with the screaming. You dont need to scream and you dont need to not scream

    tennis wasnt. Also badminton. Screaming is not something new

    You can grunt but you don't need to scream at 109 decibels after you won a point. No one does. It just makes the sport ugly.

    Look up Monica Seles in tennis. Tennis restricted noise levels many times in tournaments since then, as well as allowing the empire to award a point against the player who screams. It's not well implemented but at least tennis has tried.

    Most players scream/shout not to rattle their opponents, but to pump themselves up, to get their adrenaline going, and to release any pent up jitters. I remember reading an interview of Marin's coach Rivas who said screaming is part of her mental strength training as it was not natural for her initially.

    Now females are biologically weaker physically, so they try to recruit every single ounce of their adrenaline and body muscles by trying to be more aggressive and shout/scream. Cue in some female tennis players, usually it's the thinner smaller females who hit the higher decibels.

    I don't mind the screaming. Actually, it gets the audience more involve. I don't like boring matches. Let's get at each other. Everything matters to win. Heck I'll do whatever it takes to get my energy up. Of course, I don't suggest screaming at your opponent.

    Your opinion is valid.:) No one likes boring matches. It’s the “of course” that is the tricky bit.

    “Of course,” implies that everybody agrees that there is an obvious line that should not be crossed. But that is the point of the thread. We don’t all agree on where that line is.

    When does ‘screaming’ become ‘screaming at your opponent’? Who decides what is aggressive and disturbing versus harmless and motivating?
    I don’t have the answer, but I prefer that umpires have the discretion to decide what is reasonable in a given match. And for friendly games, one should treat opponents as one wishes to be treated ... however loud that may be. :rolleyes:

    There is shouting and there is screaming like Marin.

    Marin's scream is just ridiculous

    Let them scream and let's enjoy the beautiful game of badminton. Imagine badminton without screaming so boring right. Let nature take course.
