    Lin Dan is even more popular than LCW with the HK celebrity fans, such as Sally Yeh,Karen Mok, both of whom went to LOG'12 to support him with his family. And Lin Dan is still with the CHN national team and trains with them, a full-fledged member of CBA, and patriotic.

    For any athlete who is well-liked, idolised, all over the world, his nationality is secondary.

    Whatever some people are trying to imply, HK and Macau being SAR are allowed by Mainland China to field separate teams in sports and a few other organizations and activities. One country, two systems at work.

    I'm not quite sure about that. I believe it's HKSAR player > Lin Dan > others

    I think Justin L is right. I am not so sure about Cheung.

    As far as I am concerned

    Lin Dan > Hong Kong Players > Saina Nehwal > Chinese Players = Lee CW.

    My two saints.

    Justin, can you start a poll asking who is your favorite player: Lin Dan or LCW? thanks.

    I believe Cheung would be proven right.

    Poll would be flawed here. The question referred to 'in HK'. And a poll would not be able to restrict participants to HK residents

    1. HK resident, LD
    2. HK resident, LCW
    3. Not HK resident, LD
    4. Not HK resident, LCW

    Can get a HK vs. Rest of World comparison, and also total them up for an overall too!

    Fun for everyone :D sure people can throw a bad vote, but that's the same with any poll.

    It's OK, just a matter of opinion based on what I gathered on the newsmedia

    Closest I can remember is when TakaMatsu won 2016 All England beating TQ/ZYL in QF, LY/LY in SF and TYT/YY in Final.

    Sindhu said in the post match interview, " I played well but she played better. I will come back stronger next time."

    I found the 'discussion' about Kevin Sukamuljo - Mathias Boe attitude is interesting, it's the reason why I created my account :D
    And I agree with this statement...

    For me, the two guys have almost similar attitude. Kevin is just a bit shy and reserved off-court or with people he rarely met (reporters, fans, etc) compared to Boe. And aBoe has caused rift with court officials (e.g: Sri Lankan service judge in SSF) and (some Indonesian) fans, not a really good showing from him. But Kevin is a bit 'more annoying' with his on-court antics... Hee hee hee... it depends on every individual to judge... I just hate it when people bashing players on social media like crazy because they hate the mentioned players and we know which side is the one doing that

    Just don't be sore losers or too fanatic.

    The poll function doesn't work like that.

    Anyway, why is pcll99 asking someone else to create a poll in the first place? If pcll99 has a question for a poll, then pcll99 should be the one creating it. Why ask Justin L?

    LOL, no one really makes polls for fun -- they are made to prove a point ("I'm right") and/ or get publicity (& $) -- like CNN Hillary polls & BBC Brexit polls

    So you see a lot of previous comments have already been deleted. One person sets off a diversion using politics, and others fall into the trap.

    It is good that you brought the issue up again. We would be grateful if forum members can report posts that are political rather than trying to reply to it.

    Obviously, we don't want to be heavy handed and just delete posts offhand so there has to be some balance.
