If u can read chinese, u can take a look at this news: http://www.chinabadminton.com/news2003/jul/sjs28gdbsdsx.shtml If this guy is right, then seems the majority of the 70 line judge are pure amateur, including ppl even don't know too much about badminton??? The training is done the night before Day 1. My god, I can't believe ppl don't know too much about the game, can be given such an important job (or, am I over concern about this issue???) Note: 1. Be careful when they meet Taufik, especially if they make a wrong call... 2. Since WC2005 will be held in LA, assume USAB will do the same (hire amateur line judge, secuirty, staff, etc), maybe I should take a vacation of 10 days and apply???
