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

Well I guess Patrick McEnroe is an idiot too. He mentioned on the air that he didn't know the significance of Venus saying that 11 (her doubles seeding at Wimbledon) is her new favorite number.

Mary Joe and Pam need to pass them a note

When you believe, somehow you will. You will, when you believe.

Your mind will take you far. The rest is just pure heart. Youíll find your fate is all your own creation.

Thereís so much strength in all of us, every woman, child, and man.
Itís the moment that you think you canít - youíll discover that you CAN.

If Andy Roddick or God forbid Sharapova had a clothing line do you think he would take the time to find out what is the big, interesting news in relation to tennis about them? Please...
First of all, Nike is available worldwide, whereas EleVen isn't even available in all 50 United States; out of sight, out of mind. Secondly, they just showed a couple of points from the sisters' doubles match, and tennis lifer Patrick McEnroe said he didn't know why that was Venus' favorite number. It's a guy thing, my friend, nothing serious.

OMG That's going to drive me nuts when I get home to watch it.

Come on darrin, that's not an excuse. They were talking about Roger's jacket and his shoes for a couple of hours before he played yesterday and while they interviewed him.

They (Chris and Patrick) talked about Serena's trench.

I'm sure they went on ad infinitum about Maria's shorts today.

But, they don't have a clue that Venus is wearing her own clothing line?

Actually I fault the producers for this and Venus' marketing person. Not the idiot talking heads on the screen. They only know what is put before them and if it doesn't get in front of them on paper before they get on the air, they don't know.

Your whole post is a bunch of

They are professionals and if they are going to comment on women's tennis then they should take the time to know what the hell they are talking about.

and hilarious about S&B not being in all 50 states like that means anything. They have probably over 300 locations that's big enough and even if they only had 3 it's a major fact about Venus' life and anyone who did the most minute research would know that.

I see Mary Carillo is trying to clean it up.

If Carillo and Fernandez didn't know about Venus' clothing line, then I can see the outcry, but the guys? They probably couldn't tell you what designers their wives are wearing today, much less Venus Williams.

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

What's the deal about everyone freaking out about this anyways? Does the fact that a couple announcers on tv who are unaware of Venus' clothing line really matter that much? And why do you act as though it is common knowledge to know this? Those of us who don't give a crap about Venus are probably not gonna know that she has her own clothing line.

Why do you care that we care or that we're freaking out? Your posting in here is useless because we don't give a crap about you.

I know a lot of male tennis fans who don't know that.

Wait a minute.....I'm agreeing with an Anaheim Ducks fan? HELP!!

I don't care, I was speculating why people do care. See the difference? .......I could easily say the same about your posting, so watch where you're going there.

No. I only see you complaining about other people complaining. Why do you even care enough to speculate, if that's what you want to call it.

You could, but it would only be true about you, since I am discussing the thread topic and not complaining about it.

What's the big deal, i still don't know what 11 means, who cares, I'am guessing 10 being the best then 11 is off the charts , but whatever,it's not that important, it's a clothing line.
