Queen Rebecca! I have not decide on who to vote for yet. You all done a good job so far, esp you and TC. There should be more options, but I suppose if she put every significant contributor in this poll, it would quickly run out of space.

I don't know...I really don't think you should measure a player by how much their fans glorify them. Sure, it gets annoying, but every good player has their fans. I suppose the real reason I like Roddick is because he's got game...149 mph serve? You gotta respect that. Maybe it's just me, but I would rather judge on someone's skill than on their popularity.

Very nicely said. Popularity shouldn't be important at all. Unfortunately it is to a lot of Roddick fans around here.... by "a lot of" I mean three

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I don't care if ppl like him or not, but I hate when ppl continually call him "Dickhead". I just think it's juvenile and not very funny. At least be original, right?

I agree. "Dickhead" annoys me as well. Perhaps I shouldn't talk, seeing as once upon a time I came up with "Pandy"... but really, surely Pandy is more creative than "Dickhead", even if they are both super lame.

I lack direction.

Well what lame moron christianed him A-Rod in the first place? Besides I think to that A-Dick is not so bad and unoriginal.

What's wrong with A-Rod? It can be seen how that came to be, with his name.

Of course but It's still lame, and I was just mentioning it because someone started the whole argument of unoriginal/lame nicknames. A-rod is no more lame/unoriginal then A-dick.
