Re: Laws of MTF

IDEA!

Disputes between nationalities are essential and matches between players of feuding nationalities should be hyped several rounds in advance.

(This one may need to be adjusted/ammended/added to)

OR (and I can't believe no one has suggested this!)

Any time a player does not play a road Davis Cup tie, it is because he fears the fans of the opposing nation.

i could addend 26 with a nations clause, and make a DC law

Re: Laws of MTF

Can I propse a new law?

* Whenever a young player loses they must immediately be deemed as "overhyped." If possible, while deriding said player bring Donald Young into the mix. In addition if anyone is a fan of a young player they are a) bandwagon jumpers b) teenyboppers or c) (if they are over 30) creepy oldster pedophiles.

As an addendum to rule 7- may I suggest - All Argentinians are dopers.

I like a lot of players.

Re: Laws of MTF

Any poll about players will have the standard "xristos" joke answer and be sure to see GWH mention Oscar Hernandez among others, this one is especially prevelant in polls regarding Wimbledon. Also, any 'match winner' poll will surely have an option saying 'tennis is the winner'. This is made all the more likely in matches which are deemed to be bad to watch. This poll option will invariably win.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

I'll add that people will normally elect players that have NO CHANCE of winning the tourney

Those are good.

We've come up with a nice batch of additions, this round.

Re: Laws of MTF

Blaze, a suggestion for another law:

The penultimate proof of success for a player is NOT winning a major, reaching top 10 or getting past the RR stage of Las Vegas. Instead, it is when in GM someone creates a thread dedicated to celebrate said player's losses, and in which the player gets a nick that is either the name of an animal, a food product, or both.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.
