    well, the setting was a light fun joking type of setting, so they took it quite jokingly. Rexy mentioned that once his older brother slapped the linejudge on the head when he thought he was biased.

    Rexy also went to talk to the service judge after one match during this China Open and tried to talk any sense into him. but he believe the judge don't understand much English.

    my feeling is that they honestly do not like it. (duh, isn't that obvious?) they have a very righteous attitude towards it and that is if one care about badminton and understand badminton, then one should understand that badminton should be played fairly. i have a lot of respect for that.

    yeah usually i sit very close. if you see a not too old, nerdy looking, tall skinny Chinese guy with glasses and short hair, then it is probably me! i wear the official ugly dark green vest, white t-shirt and blue jeans. ;)

    some more tidbits. there are a lot of photojournalists in the arena, i believe 20 if not 30 of us. some of them sit next to the court like what i usually do. some have huge lenses and shoot from up high among the audience. some choose to use huge lens but sit at court level. usually i sit next to the court side or at the rear end of the court as i don't have those $$$ big lenses. the court side seems to be popular though and sometimes we have 2 rows of photojournalists packed in front there.

    If I were a player for example LCW and I had just beaten BCL in the final and I had a few biased line calls or any other ridiculous excuse against me (Sudket got faulted for lifting his racket up) I would definitely voice it out loud during the interview after my game....somethin like "I'm very happy I won my game...blah blah...I hope I'll be back next year but I hope the China Open next year would be free from biased judging and would be a fairer tournament than this year"......I don't care if they boo I'll still wave and smile...

    another interesting tidbit from where i was sitting.

    - i was at one point sitting next to Rexy/Misbun and they were coaching Choong/Lee. Rexy i believe spoke either Indonesian or Malaysian to Choong/Lee.

    - at the other end of the court, Chinese coach was shouting out instructions to Guo/Xie, "slow down your speed, slow down your speed"

    Kwun,

    Malaysian Language and Indonesian Language has alot of similarities and they are from the same roots. All Malaysian knows "Bahasa Melayu" regardless of either they are Malaysian Chinese, Malaysian Indian, or the Malays. I believe that one time in a Chinese commentary in one of the game(i forgotten) says that the Malaysian Badminton team has very unique players and the most striking of all is that they know multiple languages even multiple dialects of chinese which includes hokkien, teochew, hakka, hainam, cantonese, mandarin...... english and malay..... should visit malaysia one time if you haven't !:D
