J-Block Fired?

Now I am not sure about this but McEnroe said that J-Block was fired? Does anyone know anything about this?

Re: J-Block Fired?

Fired from what? James lost, they don't cheer for other people. He goes home, they go home.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: J-Block Fired?

Johnny Mac is just spouting off at the mouth. As annoying as they are, at least they are raising money for charity, which is more than a lot of other obnoxious fan groups can say. They'll be back next year, I am sure.

Re: J-Block Fired?

Something happened in the match last night vs. Fishy but I don't know what, fishy complained they were making too much noise and the ump officially shushed them, from what I can ascertain.

Re: J-Block Fired?

Hopefully someone who was actually paying attention will shed some light on this...

Edit: OK here we go.

wow even his own teammate and brother bitched about the jblock... if blake keeps insisting they are respectful he is either being disingenuous or he's never had to sit in the stands with them...

Re: J-Block Fired?

Re: J-Block Fired?

James was pretty clear that the J-Block was not going to cease to exist just b/c of what happened in the match against Mardy.

Good. They were so annoying.

If they want to raise money for charity they could do something else.

Re: J-Block Fired?

In Blake's presser he was very acerbic about the umpire doing that, felt they hadn't crossed any lines and other fans can be worse.

In Fish's presser he wasn't impressed about them, you got the impression, but he closed discussion down very quickly.

Re: J-Block Fired?

I thought Fish was not exactly playing like a friend playing a friend. Even Roddick respects these guys when he plays his friend but Fish was acting like Blake had killed his dad.
