    Suggest some new names for Adam to use in his commentary

    While we enjoy Adam's enthusiastic commentary, lot of people here are tired of his worn out usage of names like "The Dictator", "Queen of Hearts" , " The Dark Knight" . Let us please help him by suggesting some new ones that make some sense..

    I would like more exotic fruit names for techniques. Maybe 'plucking the carrot', 'slicing the orange', 'cracking the durian'.

    Hope Adam reads this.

    isn't he using the nick names based on what the Chinese media uses? I don't think he came up with them himself. Doesn't mean he can come up with his own, but I still can see why he would use those that are essentially just translations from Chinese media.
    He is a very international guy who wants to bring people together around table tennis and I can imagine that he likes the idea of bringing aspects of THE table tennis country, China, to the common table tennis viewers. (Not sure if I could express what I meant clearly enough lol)

    That just blew my mind. I just thought the cringey nicknames were so cringey because they are translations from a language where these things don't sound stupid (like how I know some things sound fine in German, but if you were to translate them into English, it'd sound ridiculous)

    That information just completely changed my opinion on these nicknames lol. Hopefully he DOES let go of them, haha

    Yup 100 % embarrassing. Adam is from now on "The stoner surfer" the way he dresses and always having red eyes.

    Ma Long dictates the game. The Dictator. Makes sense to me. People are just too sensitive these days.

    On the other hand, I don’t get “The Dark Knight” for LGY at all.

    Some others born before him were fighting for the "Der Schreiender" moniker.

    Our club just got a new coach with a common German last name, but he isnt German.

    Still, I assigned him a nick name of "Der Bestraffer"...

    So... when he enters the gym, the guy on the desk presses a button and 6 seconds of Rammstein "Bestraffe mich" plays over the gym loudspeaker.

    I find some nicknames like "The Cloud Walker" and "The Showman" to be very nice compliments for Xu Xin playing characteristics, and I guess he would like being called that.

    As for FZD, I’m not sure if he would like being known as "Little Fatty" globally

    It's actually the other way around. People are getting to 'Klutz'-like and far too selfish unable to see things from a different perspective.
    Just go and ask my romanian teammate 'bout Ceaucescu...

    I kind of like his nickname for Calderano “The thrill from Brazil!”

    Let me ask this: Would you prefer no nicknames at all?

    I don’t have a problem with corny nicknames in other sports. (NFL Football: Fitzmagic, Shady, Beast Mode, Megatron, etc...)

    At least he doesn’t refer to Fan Zhendong and Liang Jingkun and “Little Fatty” and “Big Fatty”.
