It was the biggest, grandest television event of the year. But not all were happy. The just-released list of complaints lodged with the government hotline for July shows that not everyone was pleased with the TV coverage of World Cup 98. Complaint: A viewer complained the display of the national emblem of Japan in the backdrop of the World Cup studio on July 7, the same date when the Lugouqiao Incident occurred in 1937, was disrespectful to the Chinese people. The Television and Entertainment Licensing Authority (TELA) investigation noted, among other things, that Japan was playing in the world cup and said it was not an attempt to insult the Chinese. Eric Tsang Chi-wai, the rounded comedian who was ubiquitous in TVB's coverage, came in for the biggest criticism. He wore a T-shirt with the Windows 98 logo. Someone complained - and the complaint was upheld. 'The display of the logo was discernable and not contextually justified,' said TELA. No fine was levied. Various celebrity guests were also censured for having promotional material on their T-shirts - the only complaints on World Cup coverage upheld so far. The biggest group of complaints were allegations that presenters encouraged gambling. None was substantiated. Two complaints referred to jokes about death. TVB host Lam Sheung-yee criticised a former president of FIFA for dying before his country played Brazil. TELA said the remark was 'expressed on the spur of the moment'. Others complained that footage of female fans concentrated on their chests. The TELA investigation of a specific show segment concluded: 'No deliberate shot on the chests of the women was spotted. Complaint unsubstantiated.' One viewer complained of a shot of a goalkeeper exposing his underpants. After an investigation, TELA said: 'The shot of a goalkeeper exposing his underpants was brief and did not constitute indecency. The complaint was unsubstantiated.'
