    Default Loud Noise and No Noise

    Just like tennis game,
    When the players are not (yet) playing,
    Its okay for the crowd to make alot of noise to support the players.

    When they are about to play, or playing,
    The crowd should keep their big mouth shut.

    In some countries their Courts do not have crowd control/discipline.
    Local Policemen are the best people to handle these situation.
    Referees/players are at a risk to tell the crowd to keep quiet.

    Even watching the game at home, I have to tune down the volume down and up a afew times.
    This is my personal opinion.

    I will pose a series of questions for BC'ers?

    If you are faced with an 8-10,000 shouting singing, screaming crowd as there was in jakarta for the recent TUC finals how do you propose that they are stopped?

    Yes the auditorium had some 600 Police and Military personnel in the vicinity to provide a general security blanket for the event. What do you want them to do to stop the crowd making the noise at the wrong time?

    Eject people from the crowd?

    Do you want them to use physically force?

    Do you want them to draw their guns and escort people from the hall?

    What would happen if the Police/ Military did any of the above?

    I can tell you there would be a complete riot with a lot of bloodshed.

    Do the players take any notice of the noise?

    Of course they do not, it is quite common to see players wave their arms at the crowd to encourage them to cheer and make a noise.

    i think the armed guards are there to protect the umpire and line judges in case the crowd don't like their call

    Default ^^Be careful..^^

    ..there are some BCers, in the crowd, who watched those matches and in some cases might not agree with the umpires' or line judges' calls...

    Maybe out of topic a little, but recently in the US Open (tennis), Novak Djokovic got distracted by the crowd when he tried to serve. They were shouting and this really annoyed him. He lose the game and went on to lose the match to Roger Federer. However, we do not see this in badminton. Professional badminton players seems to be unfazed by the crowd.

    tennis players need to toughen up australian archers deliberately train with people actively trying to distract them. helps their concentration.

    Noise between rallies is fine, but I prefer dead silence when I'm playing. The snooker approach wouldn't be bad either. Clapping at good shots/rallies but keeping quiet for the majority of the time.

    I don't think loud is a good thing for when people are playing (even in between rallies). The reason for this is because it might a) make the guy who's the butt of all of the insults from the crowd nervous (and might not make for a good match) or b) make the guy who's getting all the praise nervous and make him mess up. Just my opinion.

    When djokovic couldnt absorbed the pressure,that 's his problem.Got nothing to do with the audience.Correct me if i was wrong.I think the audience payed for the game.
    Nature of fans is to support and cheered.If an athlete declared himself a pro,act like one.

    Thumbs up

    Even when I'm playing, I would always prefer loud and crazy one! Why? These crowds get me fired up, even in the rally. Silent crowd makes me lost my fighting spirit T.T... Crowds in my School is just as crazy as number 1! (Loud in rallies, but sometimes they're suddenly becoming silent)

    My personal opinion on this :

    I think that most of the time the crowd should be reasonably quiet , clapping and cheering at good shots sometimes in the rallys , clapping between the rallies aswell.

    But sometimes isn't it good , when the rally is massive , and everyone cheers before the smashes?

    I think overall the sounds should be limited whilst the players are serving etc... , and that the majority of rallies people stay at a reasonable level.

    But sometimes when the rallies are just that bit more extra special people can cheer

    INA fans make loud noises at all times anywhere on earth... I saw INA fans [probably from the Indonesian Embassy there] shout loudly throughout the match in the Russian Open [Moscow].... ... at the Athens Olympics and in the Sydney Olympics too... INA fans all share the same code of conduct.

    Rarely has an army or a warrior fought wrapped in silence
    Without (a lot of) sound, a contest would lose its excitement.

    I really like the crowd cheering in between rallies, but during a rally, I think it would be better for the crowd to stay quite - however, after smashes and other special things I think crowds can make short bursts of noise, because after all, its a crowd, and people want to get excited =D

    So I guess my opinion is make noise, but don't be obnoxious or overly disctractive about it.
