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

To me, the big mistake was when Fowler introduced highlights of the Venus-Davenport final from "two" years ago. Two thousand eight minus two thousand five equals TWO?

You sir are the idiot! Leave it to a tennis fan to knock on Chris Fowler. what a joke.
That's the point though. He should stick to what he knows. Can't wait to the Tennis Channel takes over the event. NO MORE FOWLER when that happens.

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

So why is it called EleVen?

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

You're being too sensitive. There are tennis fans that do not know about Venus's line, especially men. Is that such a terrible thing? I haven't seen him at this year's Wimbledon(no TV right now), but at past slams, I like the perspective he brings. I think he's easier for sports fans(who are casual tennis fans) to relate to.

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

In the scheme of things, not knowing about EleVen is a pretty minor blip in knowledge compared to the vast array of ignorance displayed by commentators in general. For example, several commentators this year had no idea about Chakvetadze's mugging/robbery until told on air by a colleague. This was happening months after the incident... it's a shame that journalists/commentators/etc don't always feel the need to fully arm themselves with all the information out there, but it happens all the time unfortunately.

I must've must've missed where anyone said the idiot should know Venus' favorite number?

btw, I'm not even going to touch idiocy of comparing what Larry King would know leading into an interview and what the idiot would know.

and to top it off, the idiot was talking about fashion this and fashion that but I'm not suppose to expect that he would know the name of Venus' clothing line/sponsor?

Why mention it when it's already established he's an idiot? It kind of goes without saying.

Now I'm not saying he shouldn't know those facts but what I am saying is if he can know and talk about those things then yes he should know about Venus' clothing line.

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...

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

and the idiots still don't know that Eleven is her clothing line.... they are just idiots that don't feel they need to even take the time to do the basic research on players they know little about. They just went on about eleven being Venus' favorite number and now Patrick McEnroe even got in on the idiocy.
