This is what it looks like to throw a badminton match

A. Isaac Senior Editor

Yesterday we told you about eight female badminton players throwing matches in order to get a favorable draw. Today, NBC showed highlights/lowlights from one of those matches. Note to self, if you ever find yourself in a position to throw a badminton match, don’t do this.

I mean, can you at least pretend to try? I’m not saying you need to put up a spectacular ruse, but make contact with the freakin shuttlecock every once in awhile. One of the girls served it underneath the net. Really?

What did you expect was going to happen? Did you think badminton officials were going to stand-by while you disgraced the second greatest lawn sport after croquet.

Shame on you, that’s remarkably stupid.

What'd you think of this?
