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

In my opinion, Chris Fowler is by far the best "non-tennis" announcer out there. He knows his stuff and is actually more knowledgeable about the current game than other commentators like Evert, John McEnroe and Carillo. I didn't see the match last night (3 a.m. ) but he is almost always fair, including toward Venus and Serena and has a good easy-going rapport with the other commentators. I'd take him over Tom Rinaldi, Chris McKendry and whoever else any day of the week. What did he say about Venus yesterday that was dismissive?

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

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

I never knew this thread existed so I have to contribute to this cuz he is by far and the ABSOLUTE worse. I would take a million Mary Carilo's over one Fowler and I'm no fan of MC!!

Idiotic, shit-talking, mumbo-jumbo, jive turkey...that's my description of him on a good day!

I don't even know where to begin with this fool, seriously. If anyone comes to his defense you automatically lose all credibility in my eyes.

Okay...I need to calm down....lol

Frankly, Vee's play was so bad I was almost deaf, blind and dumb before it was over ..... I didn't hear any commentary....

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

bumping this for his comments during the medical timeout of someone in the stands. Even Evert sounded annoyed when she explained someone's health is more important than the match

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

Another Williams fans outrage thread. Yay

He's actually no worse than the so-called tennis experts. The truth is at the end of the day all these people are providing opinions and we should take them as such. Who cares. Enjoy the tennis, enjoy your favorites and don't worry so much if the commentators are not kissing their ass.

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

He's totally fine...? I mean, his job is to do the play-by-play, not color commentary or expert analysis

This is just more proof that Fowler isn't the only uninformed, unintelligible, & ignorant fool out there

First all Venus' line for years now has been anchored by herself, she won either 3 or 4 of her Wimbledons wearing Eleven, there's never been any other player who has won slams wearing their own label. Any1 who didn't or doesn't notice the black 11 patch on the all white Wimbledon attire is clearly blind or ignorant or both

More & more WTA players have come to wear the line, is nothing new, it's been out there very successful.

Serena cares about her ranking, doesn't she?

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

I really like Fowler, normally. He's a general sports guy that likes tennis, and provides good observations, so I don't mind him not knowing specifics about players.
