Why Is Gimelstob Back?

I just checked ATP Tennis to see how Davydenko is faring against Muller and I see that Gimelstob's been hired for Tennis.com. I thought he was banned from TV and media indefinitely. What's going on?

The USTA and Sports Illustrated fired him. If anyone else wants to hire him their welcome too.

Re: Why Is Gimelstob Back?

But why would you hire such a disgusting sexist. Everybody who has read his comments know how he thinks about women.

Gimelstob is a ticking time-bomb. Just watch his video on ATPTennis.com. Started like this: NY crowds are .... My mind stopped here thinking that he is gonna slip up and say they are all a-holes. He didn't but who knows what this guy might say on video. He is crazy

I think its okay to have clowns to laugh at in the tennis world.

Like Gimlestob or Bodo

Gimelstob is a legend of the game and one of the best announcers out there. Good to see him back.

Re: Why Is Gimelstob Back?

If you are able to make a scant 25,000 more posts before the end of the year, you will overtake "Clay Death".

At the rate you're going, this shouldn't be much of a problem.

Why do you keep attacking me? I think Gimelstob having access to media is a big problem. I didn't make this just because I wanted to match Clay Death, which by the way I am not familiar with his work. Have I insulted you in any way? If so, I apologize.

You really do have an unbelievable imagination. first Roddick "fires" his brother and you pronounce all kinds of drama and animosity, and then John shows up in his box for all of his matches then you pronounce that the J-Block is also "fired" yet no proof. Now you pronounce that Gimelstob had been "banned from TV and media indefinitely" - who exactly would have done such a banning? I think we are long past the days of blacklisting in this country.

I made a mistake on John Roddick. John McEnroe said something on TV which misled me. But you guys said a while back that he was fired from SI and his Tennis Channel gig. Was he not?

He should be banned but he won't

Re: Why Is Gimelstob Back?

The folks here show you how ugly the world is. Just because Gimelstone did one bad thing he doesn't anything good to happen to him for the rest of his life is the logic in use. I suppose Mel Gibson shouldn't make films at all???

Another electrifying thread with false rumours. Cyrusking, you the man!!!!

Re: Why Is Gimelstob Back?

I don't like the guy either, however it seems as if some people want the guy to be jobless and on the street. He made a mistake and paid the price, hopefully he'll keep his pigheaded ideas to himself next time.
