Whereas F1 is so much better.

Yeah, righto.:rolleyes:

At least they ARE racing in Indy Racing, and not just following each other round as in the majority of F1.
Well, F1 is a lot safer in recent years... and F1 is a much more complicated art compared to turning left.

HOWEVER, Dame Edna's speech on the big screen was a great pee-take, especially at the Americans !! And yes, I was singing along to the lyrics as they bounced along the screen; and the fireworks were impressive.
Haha yes, good old Dame Edna Gotta love her, glad you liked the fireworks even though we all know they're not as great as what Sydney can achieve but hey, we do try

It's very typical behaviour of the Aussies to be fair, any which way to win and not very gracious losers..... or winners for that matter !!

Well okey so the Sydney 2000 fireworks were mega impressive, but did make use of some rather well established features that everyone knows.

Melbourne had a problem in that the most famous thing in Melbourne, the G, was where it was all taking place anyway so they couldn't cut over to it and make anything more of it! I did like the use of the other skyscrapers in the pyro stuff, and particularly the use of the Yarra.

I dont see how people can say that they would have more respect for a badminton player and TT player and Squash over a tennis player. U have to think about how much trainig goes into becoming a pro tennis player and also they do have to maintain their cool in the eye of the public. If federer was standing in front of me or nadal I would have the most respect for them over any other of those sports because i know what they have had to go through to make it to where they are as i am a semmi pro tennis player and i know that to become a pro the amount of training i would have to do and it would become a every day thing and hours and hours a day and if injury sets in u could be out of the game for months and this makes the difference between thouse who become pro and those who dont. Those top players in the world probably arent the best ones that could be around if there wasnt a problem with health and if ppl didnt get injuries.

Pshh, cyclists and swimmers kick both of these guys asses. Many cyclists are so fit that they end up with circulatory problems because their hearts become so strong :eek:

how is that fit if ur body is failing ok the heart is doing good but its screwing the rest. not fit really

But you just dont appreciate the amount of effort and training that it takes to become a pro badminton player.

Statistics don't lie. The speed and the stamina required for badminton are far greater than for any other racket sport. At the 1985 All England (Tennis) Championships, Boris Becker defeated Kevin Curren 6-3, 6-7, 7-6, 6-4. At the 1985 World Badminton Championships in Calgary, Canada, Han Jian of China defeated Morten Frost of Denmark, 14-18, 15-10, 15-8. The following is a statistical comparison of those matches.
Tennis Badminton
Time: 3 hrs & 18 mins 1 hr & 16 mins
Ball/Shuttle in Play: 18 mins 37 mins
Match Intensity*: 9 percent 48 percent
Rallies: 299 146
Shots: 1,004 1,972
Shots Per Rally: 3.4 3.5
Distance Covered: 2 miles 4 miles

* The actual time the ball/shuttle was in flight, divided by the length of the match.
Note that the badminton players competed for half the time, yet ran twice as far and hit nearly twice as many shots.

It depends what aspect of the sport you're terming difficult..

For fitness, I'd say squash is the most demanding, and table tennis the least. For skill, I'd say table tennis is the most difficult, and badminton the least, but it all depends on the player.
