I'll go out on a limb and say it will fizzle out at page 18.

It's called foresight, Monky.  It doesn't seem like a 13, 14, 15, 16 or 17 page thread.

Why is it a bad poll Chimp? :)) I think it's funny.

Actually I think that thread is tapering down and will burn out today or tomorrow. With that said it might get bumped after USO, especially if Roger wins{or if he goes out early so all the haters can peck at him about no new jacket}. I know I'm done with it. I wasn't getting anywhere :)) I just want to see some USO and hope Fed lights it up and gets #6 there. I pray Nike has a special jacket for him; how farking' funny would that be? But actually if he wins and gets a #16 jacket Alison might just start a whole new thread for it.

The funny part is that it seems obvious to me that most of the banter in that thread really isn't about the jacket, and rather disappointment and frustration given Roger's recent success (with Nadal not being there to 'keep him in check'). The jacket anger is just the smoke that leads to the real fire. I don't actually think some of the people here are stupid enough to get that riled up over a number on a jacket, right?

But there was a lot of talk after Nadal's new get up at the beginning of this year on this very forum. What was the real deal behind that supposed smoke? Roger's failure to beat Nadal?

For those that were somehow disparaging Nadal's character based on the color of his shirt, I'd say that could absolutely be the case, in which case they'd be idiots as well. From my recollection though, the majority of the arguments I saw about Nadal's shirt boiled down to "ehhh, I don't really like the pink", and not "he is an arrogant monster who devours children and is a heartless, thoughtless being."

For the record I really didn't mind Nadal's shirt.

yeah em, it was only because we had to see such a strong buff ripped dude Nadal wear a ugly pink get-up. No one took shots at Nadal for wearing it. You know, we could have said he was gay or arrogant for thinking he could wear any color he wanted just because he was #1 now or blah blah blah blah. Soooo, it was a good try but I just genuinely didn't like his outfit because of the color, the color and his muscles didn't fit for me. I didn't like Del Potro's attire in the FO either, so maybe that feeling comes from me not liking his career achievements? ..-)
