It's time for a Sharapova/Meldonium subforum

I thought, between this announcement being the same day as Peyton Manning announcing his retirement, and Indian Wells starting up, this thing would blow over. (I imagine IMG thought that too.) Obviously, that isn't going to happen.

I think it's time for this topic to have a home to call it's own. What do you think?

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Re: It's time for a Sharapova/Meldonium subforum

We had had a previous poll on this. On that one the results were closer to 50/50, and the thread was closed without comment.

I'm still in favor of either a sub forum, or maybe merging and closing some older threads so GM is not as cluttered.

most definitely. tennis moves on, while Meldopova will be discussed heavily for the forthcoming weeks, it will be impossible to read GM soon

Re: It's time for a Sharapova/Meldonium subforum

It's a massively important and shocking story, and has broken at a time when there are qualies and round 1 matches involving lesser players that interest only a few fans.

Unless there are new data, there will soon be very little left to discuss about it, and the seeded players will start tomorrow, so there will be more interesting tennis results to discuss.

Until Maria's ban is finally settled, there will still be a rumble of interest, but it should soon die down to a more manageable level.

I think a subforum in general topics, alongside general messages is a good idea - it would also save the mods & admins a lot of time merging threads.

Maria is the biggest star on the WTA..anything related to her belongs in GM
