They'll be discussing the handful of matches that are televised.
It depends on the fans, there are matches people are interested in that aren't televised and not solely for betting reasons . Or is it just because fans of the top 4 only count?

It's not impossible. It's just a dumb idea used to reduce traffic. No one uses those threads. The forum should be looking to be as popular as possible. Like I said, the WWW threads already exist. All you would be doing is extending their use to live match discussion. Every other forum seems to handle it. And if this server is so shit, what on earth are they doing charging members for certain privileges?
Do you know why this is the case? There were people who didn't have gambling interests and wanted to follow the matches, then the posting of fake scores, jinxing and the colourful language, created the Gamblers Lounge, which works very well.

Now the ones who were there, follow in their own fan forums or whatever reasons don't bother with it, but the tournament forums are there and it goes back to what I said earlier, you wouldn't expect me to piss on your carpet, when there is a functional toilet in the next room would you.

I am not in charge of any decision that gets taken on this matter. As for the servers I didn't purchase them either, but that's another issue.

As for what I posted about one sticky thread being it a compromise, it's actually commonsense. Whose fault is it that they are too lazy to talk about respective matches in tournament forums.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
