10:31 good, and it should stay. Hey nba and nfl players, good that you care about what’s happening, but isn’t sports a hub to go together where no matter which race,religion, and political belief you have?. Don’t make it political, be a proud citizen, I know Vietnam war and so on, but do you think the soldiers wanted it? Why don’t you guys boycott Russia aswell for invading Afghanistan which is equivalent to the War in Vietnam?, have you seen any Russian soccer players or Ovechkin bowing down for police cruelty or Putins cruelty for what they’ve country has done? I know it’s bad, but you can just pray for them, people feel disrespected, nfl has lost fans because you guys, those are Veterans fighting for the freedom of your country.

people in China liked NBA cause it's a pure sports league and hated it cause it's turning to be **political**. Image NBA be a foreign league from, say, Russia and one day it's promoting independence for Texas or Hawaii.

SPort is a product .As a seller, you can not expect the purchase and turn around judging your customer and expect them not be angry. While sport stars making political comments is ok in the states, the criticizing on that comment from China is considered politically right in China. Tencent has to cancel some of the shows not just because the political situation,it is also because the advertisers at the time don't want to be associated with sport. Also, a world where everyone listen to the same type of music and watch the same movie sounds scary and boring.

In the term of Hong Kong, I think it’s too subjective to criticised China about that. Because I think the principal for every country in the world is that the National sovereignty is sacred and unbreakable. When those people who criticised China, I think we need to see that Catalonia, a region in Spain, want free and independence, and the local congress actually passed that, but what did Spanish government do about it? I think you guys all know it. But all the western media haven’t accused anything about the Spanish authority. As a same, in China, their government is doing the same, to keep the country together. on the other hand The Spanish government cancelled the autonomous region of Catalonia, and China didn‘t, China actually try the softest to deal with it. But she get accusations from everywhere.

To Wendover Productions: Please decide what is important. Is it quality content and the satisfaction of your viewers, and thereby making money from the increased viewership? Or....is it making extra money from extra advertising? - in your case, "Brilliance" (this and some other trash is about 10% of your content). I am canceling my subscription, and giving a thumbs down. Maybe you should call this Bendover, instead of Wendover, as you are really sticking to your viewers. Oh...and the way your voice greatly lengthens certain random words, is very annoying, and you seem to be the absolute King of the run - on sentence. I guess you think being smart is making sentences into paragraphs.

Your rights end where the Chinese communist party’s geopolitical objectives begin. Most people have no idea how dangerous the CCP is to there freedoms. Dangling access to a market of 1.3 billion people over the large company’s. And all they have to do to access it is tow the communist parties line, censor freedom of speech, and attack anyone who speaks out against their totalitarian regime. But alas, more people are concerned about who’s going to be the next bachelor then the erosion of there rights and freedoms.

The comment about China being unable to censor unflattering aspects of sports, has never watched a game on TenCent. There, an ROC flag T-shirt a fan was wearing was edited out. A fan was recently told that their hat that said "Taiwan" and the ROC flag would not be allowed into the arena. Fun times. I am all but convinced that executives would whore out their daughters to gain access to the Chinese market, if their government demand it.

It doesn't help that baseball is probably one of the worst sports to watch ever.

Football (soccer for you Americans) and basketball are by far the most popular foreign sports in China. Go to an average Chinese university and you'll see somewhere around 4 football fields and 20 basketball courts. All you need is a flat surface, 2 goals or nets and a ball to play. Also you can play it on street level, no goals or nets, just practicing with some friends. This is simply not possible with American football, ice hockey or baseball. People generally watch a sport if they grew up with an interest in it. That interest normally comes from having played that sport as a kid. It'll be hard to find a boy in Europe, Latin America or Africa that didn't grow up playing football (again, soccer...) with his friends after school.

Hey, this is unrelated to your video but since you have done a video about epidemics in the past, it would be awesome to compare the current Wuhan coronavirus in China with that of SARS in terms of international spread, logistics of quarantining ground zero, etc. Now would be perfect time to trace the development of the epidemic and when it is all over, you can do a retrospective comparison with SARS.
