    IMO, one way or the other..

    ..whether the call was in or out, it was still a "close call", a "very close call", as Hau-ge puts it...One that will affect one side or the other...Best thing is to just move on & keep playing, because to "live" or be affected by those "close calls" will be fruitless, as there will be "close calls" again in the future..;)

    Ok, ok, I will accept that, but it's a shame Sudket/Saralee lost.

    I think the Chinese are affected by the Malaysian disease during World Championships, home court pressure. That's why they performed badly last week. But because of better quality assisted by the best "umpiring and line judging", they still get 2 titles .....

    overall, i think chinese team peform better this week, so, let just forget about those bad judges and focus on this...of course, if i put myself in thai's xd shoes, it was hurt, for sure...
    pray that shuket/saralee clinch gold medal of OG08...more terror, hahahahaha

    Good point. But LYB only sits in coach chair when he's confident his player will win.If he disappears, it means CHN player will lose.

    Close calls are the easiest to decide. When in doubt, it's point for CHN!

    He expected XXF to win. Was he still in the chair towards the end of the match?Am pretty sure he disappeared way before that.

    during today's match between LD and CJ, coach Tang Xinfu didn't seat on the coach's chair. it was left empty and Tang was watching the start of the match from the player's sitting area.

    Kind of obvious, he didn't approve the planned "retire" of Chen Jin, good to know master Tang still hold high dignity.

    When both players are from the same country, there's no coach is required.

    Btw, was CJ really "injured"? Did he fake it? :rolleyes:

    heh.. good point.. or was it planned. I hate to be skeptical of every retire or walkover the team does, but they have a bad record.

    Perhaps...

    The thick whispers and the ceaseless subterfuge must be getting on his nerves. :rolleyes:
    Already, Li Yongbo's camp sort of resembles the Cosa Nostra. :cool:
    I guess the only things they lack are pasta and visible guns.

    In Tang Xian-hu's day, tournaments were about people playing against each other with grit, grace and determination... it was not about people 'walking over' each other or throwing games or conjuring injuries to help set up advantageous draws. :mad:

    As perhaps the greatest player of them all and also as a man of sporting honour, it could also be that Tang Xian-hu is disturbed by the avalanche of false line calls. :cool:
    Sitting further away dims one's vision... and kind of dulls the conscience too. :D
    Don't they say 'out of sight, out of mind'? :p

    Uncle Tong was sitting with us in the players' sitting area :D We were making lots of noises when it was apparent that Chen Jin was not playing his usual game :cool: Even the Chinese fans despised LYB's tactic (in www.chinabadminton.com).

    Why, do you think, he did that? What's your personal inference because I don't know Tang Xinfu. (I can x-ray LYB easily even though he's got the thickest skin!)

    Did these, um, noises include certain words that begin with F, A, B and M? :D
    I hope not :p

    More like I've missed his games the last two days! Seriously, go tell him to put a different patterned shirt on. It will make him look more interesting;)
