Hi all, didn't know where to put this, we could really do with another category for “other” badminton stuff.

 

Anyway, my brother sent me this awhile back, some of you may have seen or heard about it already, but I hadn't. And boy, it makes me chuckle, such maddness, in a FINAL as well!

Might try this tactic on match nights, and then when I play them for the next match, they will all be running scared! (I'm joking obviously!)

 

Anyway, enjoy!

Thats nuts!! It's so absurd it's funny.

 

I nearly witnessed a fight last season when a member of the opposition squared up to a spectator mid game! Even his own team were embarrased.

 

None of this has any place in sport, fair enough be aggressive, but know when to stop.

Great youtube footage but good for our sport,I don't think so.

Like most of us I watched this with a mixture of real amusement and incredulity that top players would behave like this. This is an extreme case,I know, but I have to say that watching top international matches lately I feel that top players are really pushing the rules.

A particular area where this is apparent is time wasting between serves. Boe and Mogensen really bought this to a new level in the recent world championships and. disappointingly, the officials let them get away with it. I always like to see Europeans do well at international level as they seem to be the underdogs these days but when the Danes lost in the final I found it very difficult to feel sorry for them.

I agree with you rogerh – Boe and Mogensen, whilst good players, SEEM to use more psychology/sportsmanship than I am comfortable with seeing. Contrast this with Ashan and Setiawan, who have simply played excellent mens doubles! They deserved to win! A shame that Fu and Cai couldn't win one more tournament though.

As much as I admire Boe and Mogensen I have no time for their tactics. To waste time, disrupt their opponents serve tempo, give them the evil stare as if to say “how dare you do that to us” is in my book despicable.

 

Not putting too finer point on it there are a number of people to blame for this outside of the players themselves. First off, coaches and team managers should have nipped this in the bud years ago. Secondly, umpires and judges should have laid down the law. But i think they are getting soft.

 

Call me cynical but there are two major influencers in World Badminton Federation and both are…Danish. Both these players were amazing and maybe there have been words. However my guess is that they turn a blind eye.

 

It's not pretty, it's not how to train younger players and I certainly do not recommend any match for youngsters to watch where they appear.

Do you think that Boe & Morgensen have had their time & struggling physically, therefore need to slow the game down to catch their Breath as well as interfering with the match tempo?
But the English do the same.

Hmm, very tricky subject. I agree with all of you. I too find it hard the time the Danes take to serve (on some occasions it's really beyond proper playing). But, same thing as on the OG in London, Paul is right. I cannot blame the players, the coaches need to pin this down. Period. That's what they are there for, and are payed for. Same as serving above the waste. How many times have they (not only Boe, others as well) looked disappointed, nearly dying, to the service judge, and then looking like a labrador towards the umpire, because a service fault was called. Some coaches really don't get it, so it looks. Umpires need to be consequent.

The Canada Open hassle, it hurt my eyes. On the very same day it happened, it was already on our private FB page of our club. But, look at the matches where Bodin and Maneepong were still playing together, in some of them Bodin really had it hard to control his temper and the umpire urged him to calm down. When they broke up, sad thing, I really thought they were a pair who could make it. But to be honest, I wouldn't like to play with a guy with such a temper either.

I just hope this (yet another incident) doesn't place our beloved sport into a corner it really doesn't deserve.

All the best, ED

Dobbie – I don't think they need a break or a breather. I honestly think they just aren't technically good enough during rallies to win long rallies. Imagine Boe/Mogensen playing their best, and compare to Fu/Cai or Ashan/Setiawan playing their best. There is simply no comparison. So, instead, they have developed tactics to disrupt the rhythm of their opponents, by keeping rallies short (which is very skillful) and disrupting service routines (which is not). By disrupting that rhythm, they ensure that their opponents cannot play their best, and as such the game is more even. The young asian pairs like to play fast – so Boe/Mogensen have to play slowly – its as simple as that!

Compare this, instead, to Lars Paaske and Jonas Rasmussen. They were in the same situation – their “best” is not going to be able to compete, in terms of pure aggression and defence, compared to the younger asian players. The difference here though, is that, instead of trying to disrupt the rhythm of their opponents, they instead employed tremendous tactics to take away their opponents strengths. They used shot placement and general tactics to limit their opponents, thus stopping them playing to their strengths.
