Re: Jim Rome Comments On Serena's "Meltdown"

The only thing that I remember about Jim Rome is Jim Everett hanging his foot in his ass when he kept calling him Chrissie Evert. Now that was funny.

He's basically an ass who feels his opinion is superior to everyone else's.

It was also fake. His comments in this particular video were, imo, tame. I've seen him go off much worse.

Re: Jim Rome Comments On Serena's "Meltdown"

I thought it was harsh. He's just following the rest of the media. I do agree she should have just taken the fine and not shown.

I think the post-match interviews should only be mandatory for the winners and optional for the losers.

so now, winning grand slams is a prerequisite to have an opinion? :retard::retard: he's just doing his job on his show, so shut up and stop being so pathetically defensive.

And financially how well off are you?

I've never understood that criticism whenever someone critcizes a top player. If you're only allowed an opinion for doing great things, none of us have right to one.

Re: Jim Rome Comments On Serena's "Meltdown"

Having these people bash Serena is probably hopefully going to make her more determined.

Re: Jim Rome Comments On Serena's "Meltdown"

Rome never pulls any punches. He can be an asshole but he usually has a good point. He's irritating when he rips on one of your personal favorites but they've usually made an ass of themselves somehow to find their way onto his radar screen.
