It was two days ago, where my family and i have seen something that is quite rare in tv. The lost of the Malaysian badminton players in the hand of the players from the country of the rising sun, Japan. It was tense and it ended up with a disappointment that night when Hafiz lost. The next day, when i bought a newspaper at a local market, i was astonished to see the front pic of Hafiz being halted by his psychologist when he's in his attempt to hit one of the Malaysian supporters. Haha...i understand that the Thomas and the Uber cup is an important match but i believe that supporters should also understand and consider the conditions that are being faced by the players since all of them have to face criticism and desperately in need for support mentally and physically from the supporters. I hope that our mentality can change in this field.
This night, when i opened a blog of a friend of mine, he wrote that it seemed that the Malaysian team managed to climb back to semi-final when most of the players today had perform at full potential. I was attracted to one of the comments at the bottom of the post where many of the commentators were praising Hafiz and Chong Wei for their good performance. Then i thought, at the first place, they criticized that Hafiz like he's the one that will cause Malaysia to lose stand in winning the cup (since the game is played group-based system) but now, everything has turned into a new leaf. I must praise Hafiz for winning in the next game after he's being condemned badly by a lot of supporters in the media.
Another thing that make me laugh so much is the commentators during the tournament itself. I really do feel that RTM 1 should hire some other, better commentators. What do you aspect? One of the commentator was mentioning 'offside' when the shuttlecock when outside of the ring. Offside? That's for football dude, not badminton...haha..I was chatting with my friends and both of us agreed that the real reason why people were so angry when they watched the game was not really because of the players, but it is more to the weird phrases that came from the mouth of the commentators..come on..once they said, 'Ah, dia dash ke hujung court nak ambil bola'...haha..anyway, good luck to the Malaysian team in the future tournaments against China. Feel free to leave any comment.
