    So if Kwun's baby is female, then he could watch China Open in GuongChou?

    don't get me wrong, i agree, that in itself does not constitute domination. i'm simply using it as an example of how if unabated, would lead to an influx of other aspects of a foreign culture in place of local elements. maybe you might think i'm being over the top, but i've seen how china has changed considerably and can tell the difference even though i'm not from the mainland.

    Sure, the entertainment should just stay as a "supporting cast", as us sports fans should still focus on the sport 1st. However, I don't mind to get a bit entertainment going, especially during the break of a very tight heart beating match.
    fair enough. different form of entertainment for different people.

    i hope i didn't effectively hijack this thread. will shut up now.

    I'm of the opinion that it cheapens the sport. What value does it add to badminton? Badminton fans will be badminton fans whether there are sexy cheerleaders or not. Non-badminton fans will not become badminton fans if there are sexy cheerleaders.

    Anyway, I don't think that this belongs to any culture in particular.

    i dont think trying it out once hurts badminton. If the general audience dont like it i'm sure ibf wont repeat it. I think the 7 point or 21 point scoring system have a bigger impact on badminton than some cheerleading.

    Bonus entertainment does not "cheapen the sport. We have cheerleaders in basketball, football, soccer, etc. Do you think the dances change any of the sports? To me, the cheerleading dances has the same intention as the "shoot for 1 millions dollars" or "special slam dunk competition", etc. All of such are the supporting cast in a event, to let the audience enjoy some different fun, while waiting during breaks.
