I know you hate  Roger, but you have got to be kidding putting any part of Federer's name in an "overrated" category.  Shame on even you, kittens!

This is from Roddick's interview:

Q. Do you look at, think about Federer differently at all? I mean, he still made two Grand Slam finals this year. He's won a couple tournaments, but he's not playing the way he has over the last few years.

ANDY RODDICK: You guys are brutal. Absolutely brutal. (laughter.)

Yeah, I mean, the guy has only made two Grand Slam finals this year. I would love his bad year. I would love it. It would be great. I'd be really happy with right now. I mean ‑‑ I guess at a certain point, the guy has the best four‑year run ever, and we're all sitting here in shock that it's not the best five‑year run ever. We have to use a little bit of perspective here as far as how good he's been. I've said it before, and I think he's said it, he's created a little bit of a monster for himself, and I don't think ‑‑ you know, I remember reading a lot of stuff after, you know, Tsonga beats Nadal in Australia, and everyone's like, okay. It was Djokovic for two months and you guys were like, going off, and then Nadal now and you guys are all jacked up.

[*sarcasm]Andy can be so mean :blue: [*/sarcasm]

Come on you guys! This is a sport, not a Candy Land super marathon. If you are at net, it's a perfectly legitimate play to aim at the person. It's actually pretty smart. :whistle:

Usually the "great post" doesn't involve Roger.

I don't know, I've known Kittens on here for a good while and he seems like a cool guy to me. But since I'm not on as much as you guys maybe I'm not the right one to comment on it :confused1:

I don't think Roddick is overrated anymore but another funny DK thread. :rofl_2:

Kittens is cool when it comes to anything but Federer.  He has great points regarding all the other players, but he's blind and bitter (for some reason) when it comes to Roger.  He can't stand Roger and has no fairness to his post regarding Roger...that's why it's sort of like "troll" posts when it comes to Roger.  The rest of kittens post seem to be fair and objectively good.

Kittens is fine until he lets his emotions control his direction. You can tell a good Kittens post from a bad one when he starts throwing adjectives like pathetic, or cute in them mulitple times.

Somehow, when I see you, the word cute, isn't in the picture....  :Confused:
