(the question was who do you think in sports should get lost or be banned)

Serena and Venus Williams for sure. Get it into your head ladies: you are tennis players, not supermodels, not nuclear physicists, not prophets-bringing-it-down-from-the-mountain. In 10 years time there will be another batch of young strong tennis players and you will be relegated to history. A little humility and perspective -- people will remember you in affectionate terms, rather than as blowhards. And as a quick aside, if you are going to brag about your intelligence finish high school.

This was part of a larger feature that had a bunch of sports fans write in about who they would like to see ride off into oblivion. Anna K is there too...

i wouldn't get worked up about this. this is one person's view that cnn decided to use as their "sound bite". I'm not even sure how they selected the people they chose to "profile" and its not clear to me whether the comments they chose were typical of other comments received by other fans about the same sports figure.

i thought the comments on mia hamm (on the top 10 list) were pretty funny. so, I think, in all fairness, i have to have a sense of humour about what they wrote about venus and serena.

When I first saw it on CNNSI I kinda blew it off because it was written by someone who I could care less about, then when I got to the end it suprise me that CNNSI would post such a crap. Where had that person been the last 5 years.

That is kinder than the Anna one.

The one who wrote in about Anna suggested that in terms of talent she wasn't even top 100 :rolleyes:

If you're going to insult tennis players, at least watch the sport.

oO0Oo, you really dislike the Sisters, and that's okay. You think them not skilled, again, I can deal with that. But, certainly you don't agree with that poster; or do you??? The Sisters win, no matter how UGLY you think their play, others, and certainly, others more capable of judging, disagree with you. And, so, when, and they most certainly will, beat Hingis and her completely defensive style game, you certainly will continue to dislke them ( hate is really too harsh, at least at this time). Will you also stop watching Davenport, who, I also think will beat Hingis consistently???

My friend, and I use that word friend lightly, your're in for A LONG HOT SUMMER.!!!:lick: :lick: :lick: :lick: :hearts: :kiss: :kiss: :kiss: :kiss:

persond - Hingis' natural game style actually isn't defensive.

And how lame to try and make yourself feel better by picking someone you think is "ooo's" fave player and talk about how your fave beats her.
