Actually, i am not concern or upset with kkk's act or want make a big fuss over it. The world still turns. It is just very educational to know how OTHERS think of it

Yeh its a simple mistake to make which is blown way out of proportion by the media. Thats why at top level competition you have to be very very careful of what you do and say.
Because you are at the top leve, if you blink incorrectly the media will take offence to it and say LOOK WHAT HE DID!
This to me is no big deal. You should see the australian people when they play.....lol
Every 2 words is ****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! when they make a mistake haha and its a huge shout lol

The finger shorthand probably originated from the west,and is understood by those in the east who are into sports or western culture. The rest of the east probably wouldn't even notice it, if it were not put up.
The hat thing wouldn't be understood unless you understand the meaning of showing respect for the host.
(Which was what LCW did for his Guangzhou hosts. Should he be wearing the Mao red neckchief? Maybe yes, maybe no. But his gesture made his hosts happy that he appeared as one of their own, in the photo at least. And why not? The hosts showed such graciousness to arrange such a big welcome for him so he ' actually felt like home'.When hosts go to that kind of trouble, they are paying the guest-of-honour the highest compliment.)
Which is worse, hat or finger?
Depends on what you want to teach the kids.
If you don't teach the kids about the finger, they will be immune to that kind of offence. So it will not even bother them.
If you don't teach the kids about the hat, life will still go on....until or unless they have to work with another culture or, as they say, go global.

Oh, by the way,I had a chat with KKK during the SSF.
When I called him 'KKK', his first reaction was 'KKK?...' meaning he didn't know who was KKK since it's our shorthand for him and I forgot that.
Just to give you a first hand impression of him.
He's actually down-to-earth and easy to chat with. Has a spontaneous approach to questions (which probably made him rather popular with the Spore media during his winning days.Let's hope it will happen this SO.) Articulate with a good sense of humour.
Comes across as one who can give his best when he has the freedom to decide or participate in his outcome ; he 's not the type who's gonna just take instructions from the coach.
Of all the MAS players, he has the best body language on court : Always a picture of confidence regardless of play. But with KKK, it's not just a picture. Confidence is his trademark. Or when you don't like it, it's called arrogance. LCW can learn that from KKK.

blown way out of proportion by the media?
i didn't find any writeup in the news. Is it on the eveing news?
I think u r exaggerating our counterpoints to make you case because u couldn't come up with any real supporting points.
So ur behavior is based on how other behave? Are u exaggerating again? every 2 words from AUSSIES is ****?

So in a 5 mins chat, u know a guy that well huh? There are serial killers which their close neighbors, friends, family members have no idea of although they knew the subject for years if not a lifetime. I guess u have that special people analysis skills that we don't have. We are in such awe
Picture of confidence is his trademark?? Don't say i don't like the guy since i didn't have that 1 to 1 chat like u have but as an outsider looking in, he exude overconfident. So, displaying the finger gesture is a sign of confident huh? Man, i like to see what kind of men u r dating with.
