Re: New ESPN boards......

For some reason, I don't envision the ESPN boards as being very good - but this is probably some bias leaking out here - but that sucks. Can't they just make an interface change without messing with prior posting?



I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.

I think the boards are fine there. It was just dripping of racism though. The WS and the othr black playrs being called gorillas and other black posters being called porch monkeys. There was even a poster named _Nazi_, if you can believe. That particular poster only came out after Serena lost att the USO and Pova won it. It was getting out of hand. And where were the mods, you migh ask. There were none.

Re: New ESPN boards......

I use to go into the espndeportes forums, and it was hilarious, nothing but insult between chileans and Argentinians, endless battles of "Argentina will never have a #1 player" or "Chile has never won a GS" etc. Although very little tennis discussion goes on, or its hard to find, I always have a good laugh when going there, lmao.

Re: New ESPN boards......

In addition to accomodating all the vile racist comments, the ESPN tennis board wasted too much space on politics and other non-tennis matters.

Re: New ESPN boards......

You know the poster called Graf_Sampras? He had literally thousands of posts explaining why Federer will never be a better player than Sampras. He never seemed to talk about Steffi Graf, though.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Problems could only be rectified there by erasing the posters as well

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 18 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 28 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 12 GS, 5 Year End Masters, 30 Master Series.

Re: New ESPN boards......

Grafsampras must be the most useless human beeing I have ever met. He praticaly lives in the espn boards and posts 10 posts every minute about why Federers pathetic era. He is the fanatic with a big F.

The ESPN boards suck in general. You think they're are idiots on gm? You haven't seen anything until you've visited the ESPN boards.
