I thought America was the land of the free . They want to control the internet. When China does it they say it's human rights abuse. When America does it they say it's to stop piracy and the usual excuse national security. Hypocrites.

Many of my friends and colleagues are players or are involved with players ranked below the top tier, and thus I have a greater desire to see more matches than your casual Federer or Roddick fan.

If you are American and are ignorant and/or happy with your daily programming and big brother, corporate-run government then by all means stay content. My understanding was that this thread was for those who have read the bills and are subsequently deeply concerned with their implications (in a sports and sports-themed internet context, of course).

Land of free? Maybe a hundred years ago...Death penalty? Guantanamo? War of Terror? Censored tits on TV? Minimum drinking age 21?

europe is much closer to the term "free" than america...

Same but it's still good to stand up against it. Hell Congress and such get away with passing too many bills that the American public really never educates themselves on, with some sketchy things written in them. It's good to see as a nation we're starting to take more notice in these types of things.

I could not agree with you more. People also buy into the whole fake American dream . I have never met people who just follow their government so blindly. If you disagree with the government you are branded Un-American .

A merry parade of ignorance dances through this thread.

"Non-Tennis," in any case.

America is exposed for their hypocrisy... They used to criticized China for censorship. Now the US want to copy China and create a Great Firewall of America. There is a lot more to the bill than what is stated in its context. Just look at the history of the American govt. and the happy trigger of lawsuits, corporations attacking each other. These bills should be viewed as a start, a gateway drug of some kind. Who knows where it might lead us too..

I pay extra money for TTC and I'm lucky if I get decent coverage of most tournaments. I understand they can't air every tournament, but sometimes there will be weeks where you will have two or three 250s going on and we're lucky if we get semifinals on TTC, much less LIVE.

No, the debate has just been postponed until February.
