Re: It's Official: Chris Fowler is an idiot!

that meat-head Chris Fowler should stick to football...i don't know what the fuck he thinks he's doing at tennis events but he's obnoxious and knows very little, but pretends to know so much...BLAHHHH.

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Re: It's Official: Chris Fowler is an idiot!

For a second I thought the title said "...is so hot!"
Thank god it didn't.
Yeah I caught this, and wasn't Venus wearing "Eleven" on her hat too?
And then when they cut to Cliffy, he was like "well look at that, Venus likes eleven huh? Guffaw..."
I'm sure if any male player had a clothing line they'd know.

gone

Re: It's Official: Chris Fowler is an idiot!

A 45-year-old man who probably has never set foot in a Steve & Barry's store in his life didn't know that EleVen is the name of Venus Williams' clothing line. That is shocking because.....?

Re: It's Official: Chris Fowler is an idiot!

Is Eleven relevant to Venus' tennis? It's a bit of a trivial issue isn't it... not knowing what Eleven means to Venus...

Having said that, I found out today what it meant because Sue Barker of the BBC and Tracy Austin told us.

because as a journalist it is your job to know the biography of the person you are interviewing.

Please that a tennis player has their own line of clothing is a big deal for a tennis player and knowing about a tennis players sponsor is talking about tennis.

For a two-minute Q-and-A? Sorry, Rocketta, I just don't see that as a big deal. Mispronouncing names? Yes. Not knowing that EleVen is the name of Venus' clothing line? No.

For sure, Gimelstob is a sexiest pig and Gilbert is aggressive and clueless, always making macho predictions that fail. He needs to go get some lunch

I wonder if Larry King reads up on his guests' favorite numbers before interviewing them.

Re: It's Official: Chris Fowler is an idiot!

He may have been ignorant to or forgetful of the fact that Venus' clothing line is named "Eleven," but after watching him broadcast for years in both tennis and CFB, "idiot" is not a term I would ever use for him.

Goodbye WTA and Jelena. It was nice being your fan once.
