Tactical Tiger?

It just occurred to me that perhaps Tiger Woods's presence in Federer's box was a little bit of a cunning tactical ploy to get some of the crowd on Roger's side? I was quite surprised to see him as I'd never heard his name mentioned around big tennis matches before. And you know how American sports fans worship Tiger.

I mean I'm sure Roger & Tiger may well be good friends, and obviously Tiger could get a seat in any VIP box he wanted anywhere in the world, but having seen how patriotic the crowd can be in some of the earlier matches of the tournament (Agassi, Blake).... perhaps someone clever in the Federer camp had the idea of inviting Tiger up there to show his support? (He also looked a bit bored when they showed him on TV during the match.)

Just a little bit of friendly neighbourhood conspiracy theory for you all

Re: Tactical Tiger?

Man I was surprised to see how poorly tiger dresses outside of golf, he looked some like stupid gang banger in the box. It's always interesting to see athletes off the match field, to see things like this.

He looked like a gang banger??? How do gang bangers look??............oh, wait, he's dark colored, so if a dark colored person dresses in a T-Shirt and cap, he is a gang banger...........silly me

Being black is irrelevant. If a white, black, or Asian person dressed like that they would all look like a gang banger. The hat, the jeans, the shirt is the kind of thing you see worn by little trouble makers on the street, as well as gang bangers. Even here it is worn by all the little white street kids causing trouble in those troublesome areas. Why are you even bringing his race into it for Christ sake?

I posted this yesterday in the Tiger is in Roger's box thread -- not as as cunning ploy, but I expected that its effects were really to confuse and probably mute some of the andy-rooting

Re: Tactical Tiger?



Well, the conspiracy theories are in full effect. And I bet you think this looks like some kind of marketing ploy?

Re: Tactical Tiger?

I do not root for Tiger or Roger because I don^t like to see one player totally dominate a sport. Both are fine men and great at what they do, but I prefer to see a Slam final when you are not sure as to who will win. Perhaps it was a management stunt to have Tiger in Roger^s box but I think it was a bit tacky, especially if Tiger and Roger were not friends.

That's the first time I've heard this BS. The most comfortable, everyday, wear is a combination of cap, jeans and shirt......for most Americans. On an average Sunday, go to the parks, base ball games, etc..........most guys would be dressed in a cap, jeans and shirt. ...............and Gang Banger is a term associated with minorities, so spare me your "race has nothing to do with this" crap. I've also seen most of the tennis players dressed like this, off court. Are they all gang bangers too? Cap, shirt and jeans is a favorite look for Andy, is he a gang banger??

Re: Tactical Tiger?

We really have some idiots on this board!!!!Both of them have never met.Tiger has alot of great champions as friends, including the biggest one, Michael Jordan.I am sure even Jordan appreciates a guy like Fed dominating his sport!!!!!

Haha you have to be kidding me love. I have never in all my life seen a player dressed like that, at any tournament I have been to, any interview, or any show! Most players have more idea than that. There is a difference between a pair of jeans and a shirt anyway to; a baggy shirt like tiger was wearing, a cap worn backwards, and also his style of jeans. If americans dress like this, it is a very sad time if this is becoming the norm for an american man. I have seen 2 year old kids being dressed better.

Time to face facts mango and realise tiger has no style what so ever, and you should really stop trying to defend him just because he is in feds pocket. I have constantly heard about your ass licking of fed and defending anything remotely related to fed, but never came across your posts. Now I have had the delight to read it.

You need to come to the States, because this is the average look. In fact, I liked what Tiger was wearing.
