badminton is an olympic sport? that entire event should be disqualified.

Yeah they showed this on Aussie TV too. Had a big fuss over it. Anyone know why they were throwing the match?

Also saw the controversy about the female Chinese swimmer who ended up swimming a quicker final 50m than the American Ryan Lochte in a certain event. Her overall time was only .03 off the guys as well... Fishy to say the least.

The 1st group`s winner would have had to face a dominate Chinese team in the next round who somehow lost their first game despite being the top ranked pair. Both teams could afford to lose once and still move on and if they lost they would face an easier team.

Why would it not be a sport? It's more sport-like than tons of other events

Cheers for that.

And not to be a dick, but it grinds my gears when people get dominant and dominate wrong. :oldlol:

Can't blame them. Just didn't want to be buttraped by the Chinese.

Actually, 4 teams were kicked out, two from South Korea, one from Indonesia and one from China. The first two are not so surprising if you know their history of their sports.

All four teams tried to avoid being the top seed of their group so they wouldn't have to face to best team in the tournament who somehow ended up not being the first seed in another group.

Well, all of them don't have to now.....
