You lose when you say: Don't watch
« on: July 11, 2013, 09:24:11 PM »
You don't like what someone's saying and don't know how to express yourself, keep your mouth shut  :zipped:

Tennis fans are such ridiculous primadonnas.  ..-)

Other sports can survive debates of how to change their game, but some tennis fans get so infuriated by the thought they try to end the discussion with, "Don't watch!"

Isn't that what 7 y/os say at the end of their tantrum :crying: :ranting:  DON'T WATCH!!!!


For instance, major NFL football debates
1. more offense vs more defense
2. more passing vs more rushing
3. big hits vs protection
*someone throwing a tantrum could end each debate screaming: DON'T WATCH!!!!

The big one for me is #1. I think the NFL has gone too far with changing rules to favor the offense. The problem is, offense is waaaaaay easier to sell than defense.


I guess I should STOP WATCHING!! football, now, too  ..-)  Man, I bet the T4U peanut gallery would tell me to STOP WORKING!! if I told it about my job.

Maybe it's me, but you guys sound  :zipped:  when you end your posts in this manner. It's saying:
I don't have anything else to contribute so you stop, too.
 :rofl_2: :rofl_2: :rofl_2: ^^^ That's you!  :paper bag: <--- you!

I bet you looked for some -kid in the bubble- smiley but you ended up with....  :paper bag:

You hit the nail on the head again with this thread.
Why are there always ones who are afraid of some constructive criticism, either good or bad.

We are here to talk what we like and dislike/what we would like to change about current state in tennis. Not watching it would get us nowhere.  ..-)

This is going to mess people up  :;:-| who don't know any better and those who know better but get hysterical.

My favorite active players (this will make your heads explode!)

Tommy Haas
Nico Almagro
Richard Gasquet
Fabio Fognini
Tommy Robredo
Stan Wawrinka
Xavier Malisse
Jack Sock

I also like watching Dimitrov but I'm not quite ready to embrace him. I don't find myself rooting for him, yet. I love Jerzy's personality. He's my new crazy man :;:-| But I'm not yet rooting for him, either. I'll have to keep watching these two.

Damn! I must hate tennis!!! Only one of my favorite guys plays tennis the way I'd like to see it played!

I should have STOPPED WATCHING years ago!

I think the T4U peanut gallery would strongly protest that decision.

Bumping for GBY (not that he or I care if he ever sees this)...


You see, GBY, threads like this are my response to the noise being circulated inside herc's bubble and among his loyal devotees.

I find these clowns to be idiots. That herc picked up all of his marbles and ran home may have surprised you, but not me. You see, I've been here a LLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGG time and I know this clown better than you.

Surely you know that Clay Death is herc, don't you?

As for people getting upset at (I guess) Alex(?) over herc's departure, perhaps some of you will one day realize that it was herc who burned down your compound.

But then again, there are still a few survivors who remain loyal to David Koresh, so...  :whistle:

It's not the first time he's left and it won't be the last.
It's what he does.
Laughable that he called on you and I to 'police' Alex Gone Bezerk.
Apparently currying favor among the lemmings didn't earn him any 'real' friends after all.
CONK da ball!!!

herc said nothing to me  :rofl_2:  I woke up one morning to a PM from Scott that reads (and I quote):

Holy SSSSSSSSSSSSShhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttttttttttttttttttt!!!!!!

I've never been in that parallel universe, aka, the compound, herc created. I had no clue what was going on. I don't know who those people are. Sounds like Alex was doing his best Janet Reno over there  :rofl_2: :hysterical:


So herc has buried hercules and Clay Death.

What will be his next incarnation?

Dirty Jesus (because he will rise from the dead!!!)

I looked everywhere for that and couldn't find it.
Are you sure it's big enough?

That poor kid will never be able to escape himself.

Sorry, couldn't resist. What did I miss? Did we lose herc? Over what? Is Alex back to normal, normal being supporting Novak and teasing Emma, or is he still in Fed's camp? Is Obama still president? What did I miss?

Herc's gone, he made a post and said it was his last.
 
But I don't believe him.  :::O

herc went full Janet Reno on the compound, burned the Kastle(?) to the ground and deleted 16,000 posts. Took all his marbles and went home. No more herc, no more Clay Death.

Not sure about Alex's case.
