    Cant understand the big fuss bout the finger. Even swearing has become such a norm to players. Not that i approve that type of behaviour but seriously, players r just human. Speaking of insulting the international audience, KKK's tiny finger is nothing compare to Chelsea's Drogba.

    Which is more serious for kids who are looking after their hero figure?

    Taking a hat off

    OR

    Pointing his/her middle finger (at the racket:rolleyes:)

    Speaking of making an apology..

    ..since a few BCers have demanded an apology from KKK over his clip, i was thinking these are the few entities that should receive an apology:
    1. His Yonex racket
    2. Gillian Clark
    3. The entire MAS tv viewers
    4. The entire CHN tv viewers
    5. The rest of the world tv viewers
    6. The rest of the webstream viewers
    7. Those not aware of what happened but are now emotionally affected by the picture
    8. kwun and BC Mods for creating another uproar
    :cool:

    I never said KKK's behavior is appropriate and should not be punished. I was just pointing out that the KKK finger incident and LD hat incident are very much different -- KKK didn't insult anyone (although he mildly offends everyone), while LD did insult a certain group of people (although many other people are totally indifferent).

    Seriously man, it's not as serious as "insult". Players mumble dirty words all the time. LD was said to shout the f-word to a line judge during China Open 2007, LYB was heard verbally insulting the Japanese umpire in 06 WC, are they insulting all the audience too?

    Oh yah, like most kids are not already doing worse things (than raising a finger toward a racket) these days.

    IMHO, KKK definitely should apologize, but to say that his behavior will have this and that bad effect on kids is nonsense.

    What KKK did wrong is using a language that everyone can understand -- body language ...:D

    actually i'm not looking for any apology from kkk. It's pointless because we now see too many politicans, celebrity, businessman (ex.spitzer's fantasy romp) apologizing which we know it's an act to save what reputation they have left. :D

    Any proof for a real debate? your premise is all based on hear say.
    KKK's act is in technic color...which say...he isn't a very smart kid.

    yup, if he did that FACING the umpire and the umpire saw it, i'm very sure he'll get at least a yellow card, more likely a game misconduct.

    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

    Yeah, jeez I do things like that all the time :D. I mean sure it's different for professional players who need to think about their image... but all I thought when I saw the picture was "tsk tsk".

    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

    Kids won't understand the finger unless they have been taught the meaning. Neither would they understand the hat unless they are mature enough to think.

    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.
