Exclamation Stop Your Bitching & Complaining!

It's really getting rather annoying!


Who cares if people do ot show up at tennis matches, why do u care, it's the wta problem, not ours, I don't know why you want to make it your problem. Stop complaining since most of u weren't there to support it, I don't care if you are around the world, but if u weren't there then have nothing to complain aobut.

This is the last week of wta tournie in the year, do u really want to waste it complaining?? You are all going to be complaining how you will miss tennis in December, but all u do is bitch and complain. I feel sorry for the moderators also, who are expected to be gods that can fix anything, every thread is 'name change please', I even post one to sho how annoying it is to have 5000 threads the same, but then I erased it, since I don't wanna change my name .

Anyways, this is all meant in a good way, for you to realize that this is the last week, and u should enjoy it. Who cares if there is no one there, why is it disrespect, embarrising, ratings are good...
Watch tennis, kim vs. justine, monica vs. Venus, Serena, vs dokic, maggie vs. Jen, these are big matches, u shure u want to miss them counting the people that are in the crowd...


Just bad day already and venting, so if u want to vent, either at me or about this topic, go right ahead

Stop YOUR bitching and complaining about the bitching and complaining!


Personally, I made comments based entirely on peoples reactions last year at Germany's sparse attendance that went something like this:

"Take the tournament away from those awful German people, they don't deserve it" (I'm sugar coating this, much worse was said).

Well folks, hope the crow is getting passed around to everyone!

well, I think people might be complaining because if that's the best attendance the tourney can get, there is always a possibility of it being cancelled, and so then we have less tennis to watch... I mean if the crowd doesn't go, the organisors aren't gonna keep on propping up the tourney... they need to get money from somewhere!

But I understand where you are coming from, we should just enjoy the tennis.

now if I could just get some of the fecking matches on tv I'd be happy!

Well but Rebecca that was just in response to all the Europeans who used to look at the sparse New York crowds and say "Take the tournament away from those awful Americans" :-)

So its all just a big karmic crow circle!

By the way, nice post Superhero. I think we're pretty lucky that some dumb sponsor is willing to put up all this money to pay our WTA stars so handsomely, and that a few dumb tv stations are probably risking poor ratings to give us WTA fanatics matches we want to see.

mishar - not all the people saying that last year were even American - much like I doubt it was just Europeans insulting the American crowds

From last year:

I am sorry for Munich, but I was there last year and there were not many people interested in watching tennis. the olympic arena was almost empty! and the prices for the tickets extremely high!

Actually after the huge crowds this weekend, the low attendance figures will be forgotten.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Bitchin' and complainin'... it's a sport that can be a lot of fun if you allow yourself.

" The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in battle "
" When you're not training, someone else is training... TO KICK YOUR ASS! "
" It's not the size of the dog in a fight, but the size of the fight in a dog. "

You Crazy Bitches Rock 2003:

You Dirty Bastards Rule 2003:
Marat Safin - Lleyton Hewitt - Andy Roddick - Nicolas Kiefer - Olivier Rochus - Tommy Robredo - Mikhail Youzhny

Yes we are, but without butts in the seats and/or in front of the TV, our "luck" isn't going to hold, is it?

Ok, so maybe the threads are overdone, but - it's a TENNIS message board. In theory we're posting here because we're concerned about the sport on some level, and if what is supposed to be the tour's premier event is floundering (or is perceived to be) people are going to talk about it.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.
