    Although I barrack only for Malaysian players, I think LD is not bad after all. I noticed his smile and friendliness towards Taufik this time. A great man is one who can change if he thinks he is wrong.

    I am not a Malaysian but I believe in respecting other cultures. Like you & perhaps the rest, I was equally shocked at LD's behaviour and I can understand your family's reaction. I used to admire TH some years ago until he 'bashed' up his own Indonesian fan & more recently his hostility towards the lines man (HKO) & at LD in the JO 2006 & the unwarranted remarks.

    As long as LD shows regrets and does not repeat it, I think I should be more forgiving & merciful. I want to enjoy & be entertained by the great performance of these 2 players and not let my mind dwell in anger or hate/dislike. It's just my views & I hope you will take it in the right spirit.

    Well, agree with u if he really regrets and shows improvement in his behavior. To be a professional player, he has to respect others too.

    I don't really can expect his behavior if taufik had defeated him that day. If he can show his smile still, I'll change my mind.. fr :mad: -> :)

    The third reason is not logic. WHy sould Lin Dan lose to a Korean Player?It is not that he is playing against his own teammate. Even if he won the match, the next opponent will be Kenneth Jonassen and not his teammate. If LYB has the plan of raising up their points, he would order LD to lose in a match between China players.

    I dont understand this thread at all... I dont know why is TH always draged into discussion despite his early exit this time... and not to mention this thread is about LD not any other players.. so why bother discussing others???

    Anyway, he lost like any other players with equal chance of losing.. theres no reason to it, just accept it and lets all anticipate for more exciting match ahead!:cool:

    Well said. And certainly not every player would care about saving face. I'm just speculating the possibility that he, perhaps gave the game up. Not to say that he didn't lose out right. I haven't seen the match, so I can't judge it well. And to be honest, I feel that all players are equal and that they have potential to win and lose depending on their concentration, their calmness and their skill. And so I don't regard Lin Dan as a legend, but I see Lin Dan as a person who works very hard to achieve his standard of play. When I saw the match between Lin Dan and Lee Hyun Ill, I thought it was a brilliant match where Lee was controlling most of the match. Lastly, I would say that most matches I've seen that were very inspirational were done on neutral ground. These places include the All England and Denmark. O and the only person I regard as a legend in the world of badminton is Tang Xian Fu

    i think ur a bit shallow.
    -LD threw (as in not broken) the racket onto the floor, it was TH who 'smashed' (as in breaking it) the racket to the floor.
    - since LD didn't win the MO, why LD has the wear the 'hero' hat? If u force someone to do something he/she doesn't like or believe in, aren't u more disrepectful of their culture and as a person? Don't label other people as disrepectful before judging his/her own action.

    Sickness was just an opinion from a BF member, it wasn't an official reason given by the chinese team. BTW, PSH doesn't read this forum so u dont have to feel sorry for him

    your logic is that
    LD not MO champion 06, then need not to wear the 'hero' hat;
    my arguement will be
    LD not MO champion 06, then need not to receive the mock cheque

    BUT....both the mock cheques and the 'hero' hats were meant for the finalist...u know, for the high spirit warriors, which I believe, LD is one of those...hope u got the point.

    AND, I was in the stadium, and I saw with my own eyes, how LD refused the 'hat'...the picture remains in my mind...can't forget it

    culture difference? i think that something you (and everyone) need to respect in

    its respectful to give a 'hero' hat to LD (assume if you are saying he has fighting spirit), but you also need to respect his culture as well, he was certainly not a winner in the event, then why would he still need to wear such a symbolic icon?

    just in case if you are using a different term with me, from wiki-dictionary(or whatever its called)
    the term mock:

    [edit] Verb

    to mock (mocks, mocked, mocking)
    1. to mimic, to simulate
    2. to make fun of by mimicking, to taunt
    3. to disappoint someone
    from your argument, if he is not being respected from the start, whats the reason for you to be mad if he doesn't comply? we are all human, super dan or duper 'done' :p



    and for the word 'dan' and 'done'...
    it doesn't sound like "dan" in chinese, mandarin nor cantonese, sorry cooler :p

    it has been a year now and let's get it over. I am sure LD is sorry for what he did, and he is just a human who make mistake too.

    Wish the world can be more forgiving.;)

    i'm not questioning your photographic 1000 GB memory capacity, i'm questioning your processing power of your CPU.

    Well, Cooler, Have to say, that remark was a bit disrespectful!....

    Anyway I think the "hat" issue may also have something to do that Yonex contracts usually have writings that players must wear a yonex cap with the YY visible at price ceremonies.. So LD could simply be afraid of breaching contract rules with Yonex..

    I do not think a low ranking of TH is neccesarily good for the Chineese players.. meeting Taufik in the early rounds for Bao, LD etc.. may not be a brillian idea :)
