I must say I liked the initial title better otherwise it sounds more like a result thread: The Thread Where People Who Don't Like Nole Come To Laugh About His Defeats
I liked that too
Nole haters are too diverse, and not of one mind
Roasting implies that you guys are playful about Nole... the word dislike isn't even appropriate... just call it the Nole Hate Thread and get it over with.
I don't think the poster meant Nole to be immune.
As a Nole fan, I'm just a bit tired with all the varies threads about him. I would rather there's a roasting thread so everyone can put all their negative energies into one instead of a million threads and then mods are forced to read through every single post and figured out whether the threads should be merged or not.
Just be done with it. Have one bashing thread and then figure out whatever name you wanted.
Why are Nole fans acting like he's getting some sort of raw deal here at MTF? Apart from the hysteria over his parents immediately following his AO win, the hating has been no worse than it was for Nadal or Roddick. As a non Nole fan, I'm sick to death of all the non bashing threads there have been about Nole since the AO. They don't seem to get merged. Jonathan's thread was not a bashing thread and my objection to the merger was that the 2 threads were not the same. Having this thread will not stop other negative threads about Nole appearing in the future. Every "Nadal sucks" thread is not merged into the Piggy Roasting thread.
I agree there should be one roasting thread.
I just think the reason why Linda was concerned is hers was a roasting thread- and Jonathan's was more about his level of success. Meh... I guess it is a matter of semantics. (And I can get annoyingly anal about that- sorry.
And as a Rafa fan- I can empathize with the fatigue of seeing all of the different threads bashing a player. It has calmed down a bit for - but for a while there- complaints about his clothing, his habits, his game, etc., etc. Now Nole has taken the mantle (and Rafa took the mantle from Roddick). It comes with success but should calm down but I imagine is vexing for mods in the process. The piggy roasting thread actually helped a lot- and even as a Rafa fan...I find it fun a lot of the times because a lot of the posters are just being funny and goofy.
I also like the Piggy roasting thread (most of the time, sometimes it is gross
) If Nadal has another excellent clay season,I'm pretty confident he'll be Public Enemy #1 again. Oh, the fun I'll have asking if all his hating threads can be merged into one mega-hating thread
He hasn't earned it when he loses more often then Nadal on hard, when hard is his best surface.
He's a Slam Champion with a large swell of bad feeling against him at MTF. He's earned it. I've accepted it, and so must you.
There is no more discussion on it.
Thanks very much to Neely for "unmerging" the threads :hugs: Much appreciated
