I love playing badminton. Sadly, my local channel doesn't televise those Olympic matches. :(

I love playing the game. and if you see the videos of the match, it is soo obvious that the teams aren't playing to win. It is so bad, they should've realized that it wouldn't sit well with the powers that be. Unfortunately, a round-robin format invariably means that some teams know exactly what to do in their last match and most times will do that to gain a favorable advantage.

I think it was Football that tried to eliminate this knowledge by having all teams concerned play their matches simultaneously so teams were forced to attempt to win because they didn't know the other results nor how it would affect them.
