Re: 2012 Pre-ACC Chat Post

Actually I disagree, seeing some of the posts in this thread. A lot of talent this year.

Re: 2012 Pre-ACC Chat Post

Can someone please explain what ACC stands for? I understand the point of this every year and find it to be hilarious, but I've never understood it's abbreviation/origin.

Ass-Clown Contest
or
Arse-Clown Contest

I think the 2nd one is the preferred name.

Re: 2012 Pre-ACC Chat Post

Looner is trying hard to be an ACC contender. He isn't that good at trolling but did some solid clowing this year. He could reach QF with a good draw. BigJane must be one of the favrites to win the title this year.

Great answer Pirata!

I think pusher for life is a better contender, though. Because unlike Lenders he is 100% clown.

Re: 2012 Pre-ACC Chat Post

I'd prefer that none of the permabanned posters win. MTF missed its chance with them and now it's too late. Just like the tennis players you refer to as "best player never to win a slam," so it is here. SdG withdrew from the contest, but CD was in the final last year. People had their chance. Now it's gone, just accept it and don't try to "fix" the result. Anyways it's kind of pathetic to go after people who can't defend themselves.

This. And besides, I don't overhype him.

I shouldn't even be nominated tbh. If I make it anywhere near the QF, it will proof of an extremely weak field.

fast_clay with finger on the market's pulse as usual
