ESPY Award Nominations (Roger left off Male Athlete List)

I put this thread on the menstennisforumn, but I thought it was news worthy that Peyton Mannying, Vijay Singh, Lance Armstrong, Micheal Phelps, and Bode Miller all got on the list, but Roger didn't!! Please ESPY, give him a nomination. He is more dominate than any other man of the list in his sport!! Not to mention that so guy on ESPN radio was saying that Maria should get Best Female Athlete over Annika. OKAY!! Maria has won one major, whereas Annika is far more dominate in her sport than Maria!!

The ESPY nomination committee probably doesn't know who he is... If he's not playing Roddick, Nadal, or Agassi he's invisible.

go annika. Sharapova does not deserve the award yet.

Federer off the list is scandalous.

You have to consider the source. Womens tennis has much higher profile then mens tennis as far ESPN is concerned. Not to mention, mes category is more competitive because there are so many professional teams in the US, in addition to individual atheletes. In womens category, it's almost always individual sports that get better representation.

Golf: a good walk, spoiled.

No golfer should be on a list of athletes.

"I thought, in order to be called a sport, you had to sweat while playing it." --John McEnroe

"If you practice for ten years, you may begin to please yourself, after 20 years you may become a performer and please the audience, after 30 years you may please even your guru, but you must practice for many more years before you finally become a true artist—then you may please even God." --Ali Akbar Khan, 1922-2009

The person in question was probably Eirc Kasilies or Steve Phillips, who were filling in for the morons (Fat and Slim I call them) who ususally host the morning show. The fact that they think Maria should win over Annika means they are using the wrong head to think with, espeically if Annika wins the (golf) US Open this weekend. That would be equal to winning three tennis Grand Slams in one year.

And it is an outrage that Roger wasn't nominated for Male Athlete of the Year.

Further evidence tennis gets no respect. Lance won 1 friggin' race all year and is painted a hero and wins all these athlete awards, whereas Roger wins the equivalent of 3 Tours in one year and gets nothing.

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

That's how I feel!! My dad's friend and I had a good discussion on whether golf is actually a sport. My dad's friend is a pro golfer who doesn't have a tour card, just is good enough. He and i have played tennis in the past as well. Any hoo, I brought up John Daly, and asked him if she was an athlete. He agreed he wasn't, but still thinks golf is a sport and that tennis players are barely more athletic than golfers. I WAS PISSED!! Myself being a tennis player, I know that any golfer other than Tiger couldn't run 5 miles with starts and stops, have the hand-eye coordination, the flexiblity, the strength, the stamina, and the balance to play tennis at a high level. Golf is an activity that a player can walk(name another sport that allows you to do that) and nobody can alter your shot. You have a caddy telling you what club to use, you can talk as much time to hit your shot, and your caddy carries your bag. Golf is a great competition, but tennis is one of the most athletic sports out there!!
