    Olympic Disqualification-Snoop King?

    The Oriential bad mitten players accused of "not using one's best efforts to win" and "conducting oneself in a manner that is clearly abusive or detrimental to the sport." were disqualified from Olympic games by the “Committee”. Using their logic, should a golfer be disqualified for laying up rather than going long? Should Ali have been disqualified for rope adoping. Once again on the World stage the Oriental Wisdom has once again proven in Sports as in Politico, that the Ancient Truth is far superior to the Beast’s Word. But Understanding is Supreme.

    But in unrelated news, the hip-hop rapster Snoop Dogg has laid it down, and has picked it up asSnoop King, the resurrected Bob Marley. Whileheld that a living dog is better than a dead lion, apparently Snoop had da revelation as some that it is better live as a just man than die being a fool. Eh brother, am I lyin? Anytiwas, this ganja 520 is for you and all that you do friend, can’t wait to hear da preacher's words of da Wonder.

    Ali didn't use the tactic to get himself a weaker opponent in his next match, your example is flawed. The Olympics committee was dead right to disqualify the badminton players who cheated.

    laying up in golf is a method to try and get the lowest score based on your ability, the lie and how far to the hole.

    Ali used rope-a-dope as a tactic to win fights. Not throw them.

    Your examples are invalid. Chines were throwing the match on purpose.

    Therefore example was inductive, using the abstract example of the Ali who would cover himself against the rope and allowing his opponent to score uncontested points, which some might say that refusing to box by covering up was “conducting oneself in a manner that is clearly abusive or detrimental to the sport." However, the result was that Ali allow his opponents to wear themselves out which gave him the physical advantage in the later rounds, which he won by doing so.

    But then again, those who subscribe to the rule of law never allow principle to interfer with their intepretation of the facts. I mean you do believe in the rule of law right? Or would my reasoning be in error?

    I must confess I don't understand this concept of deliberately losing to "receive a more favorable draw." Badmitten is a very strange sport.

    As well as playing to lose and avoid the tougher team in the draw, the Chinese were also playing to avoid the other Chinese team so they didn't meet until the final stages, knocking one of them out.
