Exclamation In the spotlight - Action Jackson

Ah, I know Bachelor Dandy was keen on making this one, but I got the go-ahead first

Ask poor questions at your peril.

1) Why were you initially reluctant about having a spotlight thread?
2) Who's the most idiotic person you've ever worked with?
3) Would you ever consider striking up a conversation with X?
4) Which player forum would you never enter regardless of how much you were paid to do so?
5) What's been your favourite ACC so far?
6) When is MTF at its finest and actually worth spending time on?
7) Which meal could you never get bored of eating? And what's the best way to make prepare some lamb for a barbecue?
8) Fangirlism or bandwagon hopping - which annoys you more and why?
9) What's the most amusing moment you've ever witnessed on a tennis court?
10) Should I cut down on my use of smilies?

That should be enough for now

In the spotlight - PMK is Innocent

(1) How long have you lived in Australia?

(2) What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?

(3) Including any past accounts and deleted posts, how many separate times have you posted on MTF? A rough estimate is fine.

(4) Besides “Pussy Galore,” which Bond girl had the best name?

(5) If you had to choose one of the following songs to play continuously in your head for 16 hours per day (at a fairly low volume) for the rest of your life, which would you choose?

Simply Red – “Holding Back the Years”
Q Lazzarus – “Goodbye Horses” (i.e. Buffalo Bill’s special song from Silence of the Lambs )
Vanilla Ice – “Ninja Rap”
Europe – “Final Countdown”
Cher – “Believe”
Eric Carmen – “All By Myself”
Lou Bega – “Mambo #5”
Steve Perry – “Oh Sherry”
Cyndi Lauper – “She Bop”
Color Me Badd – “I Wanna Sex U Up”

Re: In the spotlight - PMK is Innocent

1) Do you have many regrets concerning the way you've lived, the decisions you've made?
2) Having a black eye or a bruised rib?
3) Not have a starter or not have a dessert?
4) What's your all-time favorite tv-show?
5) Last time you were embarrassed?

Re: In the spotlight - PMK is Innocent

Fucking hell so many questions.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

There are more worthy and interesting people on here, that are worth discovering, plus the likelihood of getting moronic questions and idiots wanting to start stuff.

Quote:
2) Who's the most idiot person you've ever worked with?
There are many of them who'd fit that role, but it takes all kinds.

Quote:
3) Would you ever consider striking up a conversation with X?
Not sure.

Quote:
4) Which player forum would you never enter regardless of how much you were paid to do so?
Gilles Simon.

Quote:
5) What's been your favourite ACC so far?
The initial idea was a joint one between adeegee and myself, the first one will do for now.

Quote:
6) When is MTF at its finest and actually worth spending time on?
Even among the drivel, there are some good moments throughout my time on year. Having some quality discussions about different subjects, though these aren't as often as it should be. Things change with the respective fanbases, but the world evolves.

Quote:
7) Which meal could you never get bored of eating? And what's the best way to make prepare some lamb for a barbecue?
Ice cream isn't a meal, but I don't get bored of pasta. As for preparing lamb marinate it overnight and just use a bit of salt before putting on the barbeque, but this not my greatest area of expertise.

Quote:
8) Fangirlism or bandwagon hopping - which annoys you more and why?
Fangirlism is annoying for sure, more people tend to grow out of that. Bandwagon hopping is worse, it's like I just want to follow someone who is good or the in thing, in some cases it's like they haven't been exposed to the particular individual or group which is fair enough, but don't get off the wagon when they aren't doing well, it's easy to support something or someone when going well.

Quote:
9) What's the most amusing moment you've ever witnessed on a tennis court?
Too many to name just one, probably when I was playing a league match and I was ready to hit a forehand and the guy on the next court screams "Stop hooking me you fucking cheat" and missed the ball. My opponent and I watched the events unfold on the next court as the other players were about to go the knuckle.

Quote:
10) Should I cut down on my use of smilies?
No.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Doing a job having to write down licence plate numbers leaving a transport facility, it only lasted a week.

Out of that lot, it would be the Final Countdown.

- Beer

- Skoda

1. Not really, things have happened for a particular reason at that time, sure it might not have turned out the way I wanted, but can't regret them.

2. Yes

3. Depends on how I feel, less likely to have desert.

4. I don't really have one.

5. When I looked at my bank balance.

Re: In the spotlight - PMK is Innocent

is the correct term cockchimp or chimpcock? Is it the australian word for chipmunk or is it a completely different species? or is it some kind of seafood salad frequently served an appetizer?

I have very little hope for the ATP. There aren't any standout candidates, especially as the ATP structure is very flawed and as a players union, it's a non-entity in essence. Considering the global economic conditions, there needs to be someone who isn't so much of a corporate whore and wants to stay in the background and make sure the organisation is run well.

That being said Thomas Muster, but that isn't happening.

Quote:
2) Who will win the GS tournaments in 2009?
Don't care.

Quote:
3) Which match do you consider as best of all time?
Can't answer that question, there are many very subjective variables, so it depends on my mood. I will go for Lendl and Wilander from the 88 US Open, no pretty boy media darlings in this match and had plenty on the line.

Quote:
4) What’s your favourite match of your favourite player and who is the opponent you enjoy to see him play against the most?
I don't have an absolute fave player, each of them have played that one special match, where everything worked for them, but it's not often.

Kucera and Agassi was comedic.

Quote:
5) What's the current best match up in tennis and which was the best one in the past?
Haven't thought about it for the current game. Guga and Safin had some excellent matches as did Gaudio/Kuerten.

Quote:
6) If you could change the outcome of one tennismatch which one would it be?
I wouldn't, not even the 99 RG final.

Quote:
7) Who is/was the best coach in tennis?
The ones who work with the kids to be able to build the fundamentals for them to be able to play professional tennis and make it on the ATP.

Quote:
8) Who would you like to see responsible in Swedish tennis young talent work?
They have a lot of people that want to help the game Björkman, Wilander, Norman, Nyström, Svensson, but the federation lacks money and the golden generation is long gone.

The infrastructure needs to be put in place, but results won't happen straight away and there needs to be internal competition, so it will push them to better efforts.

Quote:
9) Who is the most underestimated player on the tour now and who was it in the past?
Federer and as for retired players, well

Quote:
10) What's the best soccer match of all time?
Anytime Man Utd or Real Madrid lose.

Quote:
11) Who is/was your favourite German soccer player and German national team chef?
Player that would be Paul Breitner, favourite German manager, well it's a club manager Volker Finke.

Quote:
12) What’s your philosophy of life
Learning is continous and even the arseholes of the universe have something you can learn from. It doesn't matter what religion, race, social status etc, good people exist everywhere along with the fuckheads.

Can't please everyone, so as long as you are happy with yourself and have excellent people around you to keep you in check, then that's good enough.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
