You could, but it would only be true about you, since I am discussing the thread topic and not complaining about it.
Well I admit to not finishing most of your posts, as I was busy picking myself off the floor from amusement, but from what I could tell from the bits I happened to read, your general theme that exists in all your posts is one of expressing your distaste for the tv commentators. The thing about this thread is that the topic itself was brought on by the complaints of the poster. Therefore, most replies to the initial complaints are either going to be complaints that sympathize with the original complaint (you), or complaints that disagree with the original complaint (me). Either way, both are complaints.

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

Okay, I'm confused. So Chris Fowler was kidding when he said he didn't know what Eleven meant?

Oh okay, you were observing, judging and participating by complaining. Basically trolling.

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

I really don't care what he says, knows or thinks.
The only commentators that for me has a point and make good comments are
Patrcik MCenroe, Mary Joe Fernandez and Mary Carillo, the others can go to hell specially the newest one that was Agassi's coach.

Venus and Serena

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

He is definatley not the worst commentator but he obviously does not know much about tennis. Patrick McEnroe and Darren Cahill are the worst in my opinion.

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

I can see the point of commentators knowing as much as possible about a player that they're interviewing, but honestly, as much as I read this board and Bodo's, while I knew about Venus' clothing line I had no idea why it was named EleVen and I still don't (since no one has answered the question posed by another member, and I've missed today's broadcast due to my kids taking over the TV).

I'm a Venus and Serena fan, but I don't covet the details of their clothing lines that much so it doesn't bother me that Fowler doesn't either. Anyway, I can stand Fowler over Gimelslob and Brad Gilbert, who are the biggest idiots in my opinion.

Then be gone.

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

I remember in one of the matches this morning, I think I heard Brad Gilbert say something about the knees and serving....and the Folwer I THINK he said, "What does the legs have to do with this?".....I like to think that the usage of the legs is VERY important in a serve

wrong, 11 is the name of the apartment she and her family grew up in? or the street number they lived on.

Anyways I heard this this morning and was wondering if someone was gonna create a thread... For those saying Hes not an idiot cause he didnt know her line. Srry, but he is an idiot..... sure not knowing what it means to her doesnt make him and idiot, but the fact that hes looking at Venus as he intervews her with Eleven on her sun visor and one on her Dress, in pretty big writing...and to be completely shocked like it was news that eleven was her favorite number.... please... someone pass him a brain... I mean even looking at the V symbol on her shirt anyone with a brain would be like oh thats an interesting symbol for a big star like Venus to wear and it not be Nike... Reebok....etc....

And yes... Fowler knows Sharapova is gonna be wearing shorts.... Federer a cardigan... but not putting two and two together with Venus' clothing line (which those saying he didnt know she had one, and Mcenroe also not knowing. HA!!!!!) THEY"VE all commented on it before.... They know.... they're just dumb and dont put two and two together... At least john has an excuse...hes not exactly educated...

Venus Ebone Starr


Serena Williams

Sharapova

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

I think Rocketta works for EleVen (too bad it's not called SuNeV) and was hoping for a lot of free advertising, and Fowler's ambivalence undercut the brand.
