    Honestly, this thread (and whole situation) is peak content. It actually makes a relatively dull AE much more interesting.

    Depends on what type of test. Swab PCR will not come out positive. But there is a test(called anti-SARS-cov-2) to test whether you have covid before(and this test will not prove whether you have covid now, i.e you might have covid in the past but now you have recovered)

    Take note that if you have covid for more than 10 days, even if you are still positive, you are not spreading the covid to others anymore. That's why some covid positive patient are let out of isolation by doctors even if they are still positive

    I don't like those badminton players who have gone to politics, like Icuk and Ricky Subagja(who happen to be the team manager this year to UK).
    I never bother to listen to them anymore

    I think some can do a reasonable job...but too many people assume being a good player automatically makes someone suitable for other roles within the sport.

    Same goes for judging character - many people assume their sporting heroes are virtuous in general.

    It is not whether they can do a good job or not. I never bother to listen because what they say is biased with their political color.

    Of course there are those who are really pro-sports people. After all, what we really want is to see the players develop at best as they can and earn what they are entitled too. So I prefer to see what they do, instead of reading what they say

    Who? Denmark is the most possible candidate. If badminton popularity in Europe was big as tennis, it should be no problem.

    If yes, then maybe Denmark. But I honestly don't know any country would do their job properly for any badminton tournaments right now. Not because of Incompetence or any kind of conspiracy theory... But just because there are no standardized rules from country to country. And BWF is not like FIFA or UEFA who can say the darndest things like: THeRe ShaLL be No EuropEaN CHamPIonsHIP witHoUt SPEcTaToRs.

    Indonesian fans are ruthless. Now, this time, they targeted British actor , mistakenly identified him as Badminton umpire

    Don't know what is worse, harassing people on social Media or not knowing who Stephen Fry is...

    The poll has generated 50 responses so far.

    44 (88%) voted for it to remain S1000

    6 (12%) voted for a downgrade.

    Let’s wait for the next cycle and see how sponsors and BWF decide to move forward for the All England.
