    I did not follow this thread and deleted posts. A few hundred years ago, people probably can not imagine world without kings.
    Now people can not imagine world without countries but John Lennon already imagined it

    Nothing to delete or die for...

    hehehe. peace !

    I don't know in HK in general, but in the stadium China team enjoys lots of support, the most after the HK team. LCW and LD are also encouraged strongly by the crowd. After that, I would put Indonesians as receiving strong support - in the early rounds at least.
    In the crowd are perhaps many mainlanders and Indonesians, as there are plenty of them in HK, so the crowd support might not reflect perfectly the general opinion here.

    Sorry to butt in. But apparently Kevin said himself that he was not acting on court. He was just being himself on court. He and Marcus genuinely did not understand why the opponents (or other people) were annoyed by them. He just played the way he would and always had since he started playing badminton at 2.5 years old, his dad confirmed it. When people asked him how he played or came up with those crazy shots, he answered he did not know how, he just played it as he felt he would. It is just how he plays badminton, nothing to do with his personality.

    And as much as I would like to respect everyone's comment but some people can just be so rude and keep babbling whatever they want and stubbornly and arrogantly thought their sense of sportmanship or personals ideal were above the rest of us. You dislike his manners or attitude on court, WE GET IT, YOU HATE HIM, WE HEARD YOU, as his brat's demeanor is not everyone's cup of tea unlike some "respectable" players you highly regard, but when you keep going on and on and on trash talking and not respecting other's point of view or opinion weren't you being a bit hypocritical yourself to talk about manners or respect? What is your problem? You don't like his antics, we get it. But we do like him, and as much as it annoys you, we (maybe minority of us) don't find his antics rude or taunting or anything at all but entertaining. And that is not fanatism, that is just how we feel. We know he is not perfect and he might be as annoying ass as he could be but we ADORE him. If you can't respect that and think lowly of us who found him endearing you have no rights to preach about what you think of his lack of manners or respect.

    Everyone can have their own opinions and express them freely like you had kindly demonstrated to us in a pleasant way more than once. Then why can't the players have their own ways and express them freely on court? Even if he annoyed you so much what good would it make for you taking it on others who think otherwise? Are you taunting us? And this is okay because..?? Maybe you should learn from those highly respectable players yourself before talking about other people's manner in public.
    In case you haven't noticed, Badminton is sport. Unfortunately for you, in sport every body is welcome despite their personalities or attitudes. You should know that yourself since you are a part of it.
