      Yay for Adam. He's bringing good insights, and these days more often than not manages to contain his overenthusiasm as not to interfere too much with the actual game while still adding colour and depth to it.

      He tended to go over the top quite often a while ago, I don't see much of that anymore. He's always known his stuff, but I think he's maturing further and further in his TT factual knowledge and tactical insight. Added to that, he's so respectful and seems to have a very good standing with most if not all of the pro players he's bound to run into frequently. That's not an easy thing, I believe, because of language and cultural barriers. Props to Adam for effort and result.

      Even so, I wouldn't miss that "dictator" admiration meme.

      When the Nazis took over my beautiful country at first they didn´t setup concentration camps from day one, instead they operated slowly bit for bit to find acceptance for their daily dosage of hate and then they gradually went up. This can also be found nowadays. Just look around.

      And since hate and negativity work very subtile i rather have something like this in mind:

      Watch your thoughts; they become words.
      Watch your words; they become actions.
      Watch your actions; they become habits.
      Watch your habits; they become character.
      Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

      I see that some words have different weights for different people, and, although “The Dictator” thing doesn’t bother me, I can clearly understand that it can affect others, and even mix things up for younger people watching (like thinking “Oh, he was a dictator? Was he as good as Ma Long?”), and that is bad.

      I understand your point.

      Also, cannot argue with a Yoda post.

At times it is great to have good commentary though, and even spice it up a little by inviting a player to comment too. Unfortunately in many cases the commentary is really boring and useless though.

      About Adam, I think he does such a good job, be it commentating, interviewing or promoting. I actually get bothered when it is another commentator on the game. It is just obvious that he really loves table tennis. In my opinion, he adds a lot to the sport.

      As for highlights replays, I think I don't "absorb" the game as much as watching the full thing, so the matches I really want to see, I tend to go on ITTV to get the full version. Sadly, the lack of time makes me watch more the highlights, though.

      SUN WEN = JOHN
      No one else can draw his bat as fast as him to execute a powerful FH.
      He's JOHN WEN

      So.. Adam refers to Fan Zhendong as “Shaopong” (or maybe that would be spelled Xiaopong?). Anyway, what does that mean?

      I think it's Xiao Pang and it means "Little Fatty"... Lovely name isn't it?
