The problem with Koo Kean Kiat/Tan Boon Heong fans is this.
You have great faith and hope on the pair on doing well, and support them "all the way," good or bad, win or lose.
Other people, would rather support them based on metrics, staying power, mental strength; things that can been seen and observed.
When you put the two together, you can't, because they're mutually exclusive, at the moment.
So "the fans" look foolish to the realists, and the realists look unsupportive to "the fans."
And when "the fans" like eaglehelang, azza...ipoh (too many 'z') try to defend based on metrics, like newspaper clippings, etc., it just doesn't work.

cai yun/fu hai feng also lost..
how about a thread "cai yun/fu hai feng..also going down the hill"?
wait...no..people would say..
no need..coz they lost in the second round...not like kkk/tbh...
people cant stand to say sumthing about kk/tbh...but when it comes to other pairs..they would come out with excuses as why other pairs lost, despite being seeded 1 and lost to..who?
c'mon...all these outstanding pairs are human..sumtimes they are up, sumtimes they are down...
whether its kkk/tbh, or MK/HS or CY/FHF...when they lost..it is never fair to create a thread like this...
people say a lot of things to kkk/tbh fans, and those people may be the fans of MK/Hs or CY/FHF...now that the same fate falls down to their favourite players' heads...they sure know how kkk/tbh fans feel...
players could lose..and the loss could happen to just about everybody...even tony gunawan/chandra also lost...

But it's true what you say though, they are only human and winning and losing is part of the game. A thread like this isn't a means of attacking anybody, its just speculation and discussion right now, nothing more than that.

It May Not Be An ''upset Or Shock'' The Japanese Pair Beat Kkk/tbh.they Did It In Last Wc Too.
Tan Has Improved Alot Recently.and Koo Is Still Trying To Show-off His Skill When He Play In The Court.
''they R Still Young.they R Overrated.mk-hs Also Beat By The Japs.'' This Is Not The Excuse For Them To Lose.
Hope The Downhill Of Tbh-kkk Is Not The Same As Mr.yoyo.or Maybe All England Champion Is A Curse For Msia Player?

And as I said many, many, many, times, in real life, we are the minority. . It takes guts to be the minority, being called idiots or dreamers by the majority, which constitutes about 80%.
I have to saying this cos some non Msian BCers even think majority of Msian fans are blind supporters, in reality it is not so.
It is easy to say "they're useless", etc, etc. It's easy to support when the players are winning, it is easy not to support when they keep losing - this is what has been said by the players & non Msians.
I've frequently have had the embarassment of explaining to questioning non Msians why Msians dont support own players - effects my reputation too as a Msian.
The metrics, like press reports or statistics are about the only things we small minions have to use. The funny thing is Indonesia fan like Badmania has started defending them too, lol.
Fools or dreamers we may be called -if in real life the impossible has become possible, anything can happen.

Oh...not to mention Jens Eriksen/Martin Lundgaard Hansen, the 2 times All-England winners (I vaguely remember this pair is someone's favorite pair ) crashed out in the very first round too, to Tsai Chia-Hsin/Hu Chung-Hsien (ranked a lowly 22). This defeat must have be embarassing too, right?
Chan Chi Choy (the HKG Head Coach) must be thinking: what on earth gets to my players this week....the one supposed to win ended up losing (Zhou Mi), and the ones we predict will lose ended up victorious (Yip Pui Yin and the Indonesian-born pair).
Imagine if you are Li Yongbo and Chen Xingdong....both of your MD pairs lost in the early rounds....at least INA and MAS have 1 aging pair each.
The fact is, we have seen some miracles happening this week.
