Unfortunately not everyone is calm enough to absorb this.

 

Suddenly this became a fight between Indonesian against Western aggresors. With the Danish/Indian false positive case, some even started a conspiracy that BWF just want to stop Indonesian from winning titles (as if the Indonesians can sweep the titles :rolleyes:)

Oh that BWF has got no work. No problem the scoring system will not change. No athlethe wants that boring system which kills the coemback in a game and returns to 2000s where a similiar scoring was there.
