Seriously is the most boring fucking game on earth. Every 5 second,
the game stops! Fuck, so fucking annoying. The real football (soccer)
is like a million times better than this.

Thanks! I cant believe people pay money to watch a bunch of fat
millionaires running around with no passion. And also they are not
even playing for their country. Even the clubs they play, they dont
stick around with them. So there is no loyalty involved either.

American football is a horrible boring sport. Nothing like the real
football(soccer).... Now that is something beautiful....

Nadal is not exciting. I dont like his loooy groundstrokes. Djoko
hardly has weapons. But he can strike the ball pretty decent
SOMETIMES. Murray is Sanchez Vicario minus steroids.

I prefer a mix. I prefer attacking baseliners. Most of my favorite
tennis players are attacking baseliners with big serves (Graf, Lendl,
Sharapova).

Actually the current top guys we have: Nadal, Federer, Djoko, Murray provide
the most exciting baseline rallying the game today. Sometimes joined in by
Simon, Verdasco, Tsonga, Blake.

Did you see some of those Nadal/Verdasco rallies? Just awesome stuff. Then
more of the same in the Final, some of those rallies were the highest level
tennis had ever been played.

Actually you are right. 4th quarter was good. But I would be happy
without the timeouts. They are a fucking waste of time.

Why must they be heavyweights to be exciting?

Hello Raja:

I watched 1/4 of the final set of the AO Final, and then turned the
television channel to watch the second half of the Super Bowl. The
fourth quarter of the Super Bowl was very exciting. If you did not
watch that portion of the game, then you missed a lot.

Peace,

Famous

I honestly don't think team sport is as exciting as the 1 on 1 battle of
tennis. This coming from a guy who watched 1000s of hours of team sports
back in the 90s. I learned over time that athe 1:1 is the most compelling.
Two guys battling each other with no help for up to 5 hours, what could be
more exciting?

A heavyweight title fight can be as exciting. Another 1 on 1 battle with
no excuses.

Personally I never cared for pure S/V tennis. I like a hybrid approach of
baseline and S/V. 100% S/V tennis is just too boring. You could see in many
of the Verdasco/Fed rallies with Nadal some beautiful shot making(mostly
Verdasco/Fed) because of the need for rallying. This is not the moonballing
of yore, this is nuclear rallying.

I once watched a match between Todd Martin and Ivo Karlovic, which Martin
won 7-6, 7-6, 7-6. Each game went ace, ace, ace, double-fault, ace, or
pretty close to that. It was partly a form of penance, partly that I knew
one of the ballkids. It was astonishingly boring.

Your point?
Martin hardly moves, Karlovic as well. If they're somethin you associate
with s/v style then omg.

I stopped caring about NFL when Steve Young retired. He was the last true
artist out there in a game of brutality.
