they still throw matches.

they will lose if they think it makes the path easier for a teammate to win.

they like to play the odds on stylistic matchups.

this is especially true when they hit eachother in tourneys.

The disqualification is retarded.

No one disqualified the spurs when tim duncan or parker sat on the bench for the last game of the NBA season.

No one disqualified any teams in the world cup when those teams already qualified in the group stages

Its strategy paying for seeding.

Sounds like they need to restructure the tournament to stop people from losing on purpose.

They did that because they changed the rules 3 months ago, and it's fukcing up everyone in badminton.

One of the chineses players at age 24 even retired for badminton.

You're the one that seems slightly retarded to me. Did you watch the video? It's a complete embarrassment. You can't both be throwing the match that blatantly in front of a big crowd, in the fukkin olympics, where emphasis is on the ethics of pure competition. Do you know how shameful that looks? If you want to throw the match do it in a subtle way, not blatantly serving it in the net while the other team does the same. Did they honestly think this travesty would fly with the olympic committee, the crowd, and the viewers at home?

You literally have to suffer from some level of autism to think that this plan would work and no one would make a fuss about it.

do you even watch any other sport? there's a reason why teams put bench players in there.

I can't believe you never heard of playing for seeding. People forfeit games on purpose to get a good seed.

Am i an avid follower of the chinese badminton league or whatever? No, not really. But i follow sport leagues in general as well as most international sporting events, and i believe in the spirit of competition. If that's what they do over there then it doesnt change the fact that it's still a disgrace. And to have it displayed at the Olympics in such fashion is pure fkin bs, i don't care who you wanna face in the next round, you don't embarrass yourself like that.

Adapt to the rules of the olympics or boycott it and don't show up, but don't waste everyone's time like that.

I guess you should tell the spurs to boycott the playoffs when they bench all their starters for the last game of the season.

I hope you realize how stupid you come across. The Spurs rested their veterans for a part of the season, limiting minutes or even dishing out DNP. They still had an amazing record, they were able to develop their younger guys and give their bench some confidence. Neither team tried to lose on purpose. Do you seriously not understand the difference? The match didn't look like two players throwing the ball out of bounds until time ran out. Can you seriously not distinguish the difference between the two situations?

You are so dumb i don't even know what to say. Teams in the NBA tank for a better draft pick...that is strategy. I don't know why you don't see it.
