    Balanced wagons steer straight along its track. :D I looked up at the road sign and it said "KKK & TBH - Going Downhill?"

    If I keep getting asked who's side I'm on, then I'd have kept Pemuda at bay, at the very least, while allowing the fans to air their views safely without being attacked.

    You know it's really tricky, the fans are a lot more volatile. Just a drop of Pemuda, or bananakid, I'm noticing, with the hilariously funny :)D) mountain story, can/will start a raging fire quite easily.

    i think bananakid's story is funny. like a fairytale with monsters and what not. but fairy tales, in the end, are just tales. real life goes on. :D

    You havent seen the ones I have had to deal with in real life, :D:D. There's a lot of Pemudas in real life, a lot more than the "volatile fans"/the "fools".
    So we are not, like you said in the other thread 'ganging up' on them, in real life they gang up on me, but eagle can fly, he he.;);)

    Bananakid is not Msian & if I'm not mistaken supports China players, from his story he likes Taufik too. I wouldnt say such things about other countries players.

    Bananakid,good story.ask Spielberg to do something about the script.
    Ur story is a good music for ears,
    Reality?yes.

    But in the bottom of reality is,nobody would want to be losers.
    They made mistakes.i mean stupid mistakes.For kkk/tbh.They are disaster in this Ae.i couldnt imagine how i fell about this.its bad.
    But in the end,im still a supporter n i came back with a support.
    Good story anyway.

    Nobody is attacking pemuda or bananakid.Defend for what we believes.
    Defending Malaysian athletes.N we are majority.So it looks like we are attacking.
    They choose to stand by their words.So,whatever the outcomes.Take it.
    simple n easy.
    No formulae was used.
    after what happen in our last night general election,u must start thinking malaysian now are developing.
    We started to think liberally.But in terms of 'how we support' our people.
    That stays the same.at least for me.

    The rest did not run their mouth off predicting and promising big results i.e. "ready to plunder in Europe" and all. It is embarrasing when you fall flat on your bold predictions.

    Thats the difference.

    "Ready to plunder in Europe" :rolleyes: More like really to blunder, actually.

    KKK/TBH still has chance to make a come back. This year has proven so many unexpected results.So, maybe they can make an unexpected come back as many expect that they won't climb back up too soon. I certainly hope so. Come on guys !!! ;)

    When they won MD title in AE07,I was so happy tat finally Mas MD grab back the title after so many yrs...everyone thought they can dominate MD for quite some time..

    After AE07,they start to lose in early round n there was so many excuses n reasons they gave...they promise they wil bounce back n until they won back MD title in FO07..I thought they had bounced back but unfortunately they keep losing n losing until this year..They really going downhill..Do they hope to climb up the hill again n back to the top form again like Chong Wei did when he was having the same situation like them??:eek::rolleyes:

    When we put our hope on them,they feel pressure..but no hope no future..
    Wat to do??just wait n see.....:eek:

    Unfortunately, in the real world, there've been calls to split the pair.
    And unfortunately, the above view is the minority;).
    AE MD was eerily like 2004 OG MS, the top seeds dropping out by QF...
    But definitely exciting to watch, for things 'beyond the logical thought' could very well happen - sthing like Msia 2008 Elections.

    Great story!

    Must say I really enjoy this story. Pls continue to write but do allow me to colour a bit:
    Taufik:' I won't let you get up there because it's not worth it"
    LCW: Why not?It's known as the most revered peak and the view is breathtaking.
    Taufik: " Ah, the pot of gold there is less than the one in Korea. It's too little money for a lot of effort and prestige.
    LCW:" No wonder you couldn't care less. OK, I'll take my time to go there until the pot of gold is good enough to match the name."

    The highlighted part is really sad for such a tournament with so much history.:crying:

    I can write a lot more, and more in detail, but I don't really want to kick too much sand into people's faces after they trip hard on the ground.:p

    Let me remind you one name and you may want to change your opinion after.

    The famous KBH... after his loss in the Thomas cup semi-final against Denmark. He fell to rock-bottom... and one article said that he can't go down any more, because there is no place below where he was then, but then I guess the article writer forgot to consider "Hell" is still below the ground, and now KBH is forever forgotten by all Boleh fans(a term from Pemuda) when they all concentrate on the next "rising from the ground" superstars.

    List of hopeful players in Malaysia since 2006... a lot of Boleh fans have written the quoted paragraph above about these players.

    #1. KBH... complete gone now, and 99% of people have forgotten about him:rolleyes::eek:

    #2. Hafiz... in Korean open 2007 where he reach the semi, all Boleh fans thought he was coming back. Now look at him, he is happy to get pass the 1st round.:p Don't get me wrong, he is entertaining to watch.:p

    #3. KKK/TBH... well, guess what is going to happen now... it is up for imagination.:rolleyes:

    Others can lost hopes for kk/tbh.But not malaysians.
    If u are asking me why.Without a single piece,a picture wont be complete.
    U are malaysian n u are important.

    Predictions are made with hopes.Sound 'dribble'.But brother,this is how we gain independence.

    Those you call "Boleh fans" are the minority amongst Msians, 20%, 80% subscribe to the 'Msia players not good' view. It looks like majority here cos only the hard core lurk in baddy forums.
    If the 20% dont support & cheer, who else would? Embarassing at times when the non Msian supporters cheer enthusistically for Msia players & Msians fold arms & say "cannot wan lah". Ppl think the non Msian are citizens & the Msians are outsiders.;)

    It's easy to comment on the "Boleh fans" when one isnt a Msian & wouldnt be held accountable or effected. the whys & all I already posted a couple pgs back.
