They look (and sound) extremely happy :) Good luck to them.

Although you would think for all the money he has he could have washed/cut his hair before appearing on national tv.

Part of Lleyton's charm for me is that he seems not to care too much about his appearance. :)

I like the sometimes scruffy outfits. And the hair is acceptable when he is wearing a cap. But there it just looks greasy.

That's actually kind of a cute interview. He's so gorgeous! They spend a whole lot of time explaining every little thing about how the relationship started up and moved so fast, which is weird, but whatever. It was funny what he said about all the people who criticize him about this are probably all single by themselves anyway... sad, but probably true.

Some of it was a little too mushy probably, but I'm ok with an opportunity to see an interview with Hewitt all relaxed and sexy like that, talking about something besides tennis.

More! More! I can say that because I'm in the US and not inundated with it.

I think you have to go to the website and read it there - because I suspect it's copyrighted and we would probably get the site hosts here in trouble for posting it.
The link is in the Lleyton & Bec thread.

Go to www.seven.com.au and then click on "today tonight on seven" and there's a live interview, which is pretty cool, also a transcript. Warning, it might make some people a little sick, it's pretty lovey dovey and mushy in some parts, but I thought it was pretty nice to see Hewitt like that.

With matching outfits no less. :)

Well, that was the first public appearance he and Kim made as a couple after four (4!) years of relationship.
I think the hall where they played can have maximum 4000 spectators, and there was limited TV coverage (as far as I remember only the tennis match).
They've never been on TV to talk about their relationship, never had a special in a magazine.

On top of this all, the whole thing was in the first place a charity event and not a Kim shows off with Lleyton event.

So, get real. There is simply no comparison between the Lleyton & Bec exposure and the Lleyton & Kim exposure.

How much money did the Love Match raise for charity out of curiosity and what was the charity?

The day before the match, I know Kim gave 10000 euro to Wheelchair Tennis, I think, in Belgium. :D

But with 50 euro tickets and 40 euro for standing room, I'm assuming the profits must have amounted to much more.

Why would looking at two happy people who are in love make you feel sick to your stomach?

Even if you think that their relationship won't last, I don't see how anybody couldn't wish them the best of luck on their future.

No idea how much they raised but what is your point? Does one event match the PR-campaign of Lleyton & Bec? You must be out of your mind to even suggest that.

I thought he looked really sexy and she looked very happy, so it didn't make me feel sick. I wish she didn't try to come off so uninformed about everything. I find it hard to beleive if she's been text messaging him for years on his various wins that she never watched a match before and didn't know anything about tennis before last month. Something there doesn't add up.

I don't mind all the media exposure though, keep it coming. He's so cute in that context.

Is it really neccessary to do this? I mean okay, some of you think he's making a huge mistake jumping into this thing so quickly with Bec and fair enough. I'm worried too but that's because I think two months is ridiculos for anyone to get engaged (though Marl sort of made me see it's not that crazy).

However this need to paint Bec, and similarly Lleyton with her, as these money-hungry, fame-whore, vile people just seems downright ridiculos to me. Plus it seems a little venomous and petty too. As much as we think we knew Lleyton and Kim; we didn't. For all we know that relationship could have been completely screwed up, with years of fighting, then making up, etc. (Yeah I doubt it too but I'm trying to make a point here).

Look at Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, many thought they were so happy and turns out he had cheated on her tons. Plus after the separation was announced, he did this interview where you could tell there was so much bitterness and resentment by him towards Uma, for how much better her career had turned out than his; and this was the mother of his children. The point is we just never know. We don't know what happened between Lleyton and Kim and we don't know what's really going on between him and Bec and being unbelievably viscious towards her or both seems very unneccessary.

That said, I don't agree with the attacks on his relationship with Kim to defend him and Bec either. Personally I think the sooner people learn to separate the two, the better off everyone will be. He and Kim may have been great or whatever but the fact is IT'S OVER. We don't know exactly why and may never know but it's his past now, get used to it. You don't like the new woman in his life, fine, then concentrate on his tennis since correct me if I'm wrong, above all that is why we support him right?

but never the less it is hard to concentrate on lleytons tennis right at the moment because he is not playing and we get all those pics which we never got before, at least not that many of them.
the way he's acting is probably a bit strange but we have to accept it. lleyton has to do what he thinks he has to do. we can not change him and we can not tell him what to do! maybe he's doing the right thing. maybe bec is the right woman for him. and if she is the wrong woman they will hopefully realize that before their wedding. in this case he will learn from his mistakes and do it better the next time.
we all have to get over the kim relationship! it is sad, but it is over! it seems as if lleyton has moved on so we all sould move on as well :angel:

Thanks for the link of the video, so us non-Australians can view it too.

I'm not going to comment on it (if they are really and sincerly happy with each other, I wish them all the best) - but there is 1 thing I would like to say ...
I think it's very 'funny' this is not the right word for it, but I can't find another one ... that Lleyton is so open about his relationship now. I mean, I always thought Kim was the one that gave us a little 'peep' in there private life (with her diary and all that), and Lleyton was the one that almost never talked about his private life. Now it's the other way arround - Kim hardly talks about her private life and you can see Lleyton giving interviews about his love life now ...

Please don't read this the wrong way, I'm not saying that one of them is doing the right thing. I think as long as they feel comfortable with it (revealing a lot or nothing about there private lifes), it's OK. Of course, I'm a very curious person and the more I hear, the more I like it, but they have a right to keep there private lifes private and I respect it when they want to do so..

Also thanks for the pic's everybody :kiss:

Here's the point for you, since you asked nicely.

You don't object to the PR on any ethical/moral principle; you object emotionally, which is fine, but don't pretend otherwise.

PR exists to...

1) promote the profile of individuals and the companies/groups to which they are associated (generating indirect income)

2) create ticket sales, print media sales etc (generating direct income)

There is nothing wrong with this. Here are two examples...

1. The Love Match boosted the profile of Ll/K, the venue, the sponsors of the event (Evian and Belgacom), the television station (assuming the ratings were high) and its advertisers. Ticket sales and profits generated income for the venue and the surrounding environment and helped to purchase equipment for deserving wheelchair athletes.

2. The Lleybec interview boosted the profile of the two, Channel 7 (assuming the ratings were high) and its advertisers and sold copy of New Idea. Its profits generated income for the station, the periodical and will help to create an orphanage for Cambodian children with AIDS.

There is nothing wrong with this. It boosts the economy and helps those in need.

The downside of this kind of publicity is it creates pressure on the relationship and overexposure can result in market saturation (right duck?) and backlash.:o

dagmar7, you've written a lot but not answered my question: does one PR-event of Kim & Lleyton match the exposure we have seen in 2 months of Bec & Lleyton? I give the answer to you now: NO, it does not match; we've already seen a lot more from B&L than from K&L.

As for good or bad, I don't even think I mentioned whether this was good or bad.
I just say that LLeyton & Kim was a much more private relationship than Lleyton & Bec. Nobody is his/her right mind will disagree with that.

They don't have to match. They both have publicity and its fine. Bec doesn't have an online diary, I think, with info about Lleyton like Kim did, but so what? What I wrote about PR applies to both relationships and what does it matter if there is a bit more or less? It's not the PR you object to, it's the person/people.

Frankly, I think Kim could do with a bit more PR these days and then maybe her fans would focus more on her valiant comeback attempt or, if they like, her new relationship and stop obsessing over Lleyton's love life.

This is why he should have short hair. His hair is curly, but he wants it to be straight. For formal occasions he always seems to add half a kg of gel. It looks like he's auditioning for Young Dracula.

Although I must say he looks great in the pics otherwise. :)

He needs to either pull it back into a ponytail (sans gel) or let it hang loose naturally. Girls with long hair do it, why can't he?

Socket
02-08-2005, 10:09 PM
His hair has that in-between look, too long (and frizzy) for just hanging loose and too short for a good ponytail. Hopefully, the problem will solve itself by Davis Cup time and we'll be back to the bushy ponytail I love so much.

pretty soon this place will go the way of the CCL. Seriously it's like those kids just seemed to feed off each other's bitterness and venom

While I respect your entire post and agree on some of your points, I did want to isolate this sentence and respond to it. Yes, there have been some rather harsh words spoken about Lleyton in CCL, no doubt. I do believe though that it is rather simplistic to just dismiss any form of critism of Lleyton as being the result of bitterness and venom. Some posters, may or may not be bitter and venemous but I think the majority of them are just voicing honest opinions (overly emotional maybe) and these are as valid as any.

Anyone who was a former 'Lleyki' (I guess that is a term of the past now?) has over the last few months, consciously or not, been more or less forced to reevaluate the level of their 'fanaticism', some have realized that they were bigger Lleyton fans, others bigger Kim fans, some realized that they only liked one because of the other, some have tried to remain fans of both equally and then there are all the ‘shades of grey’ that fall anywhere in between. It is only natural that lines get redrawn and I believe many are now finding themselves at a sort of crossroads.

In the end CCL is a forum for Kim fans first, LLL one for Lleyton fans first. The beauty of these forums is that one can voice an opinion, if that opinion is offensive or annoying to others then they have the option to rebuke that poster and rip them to shreds if they want (just a figure of speech). There is a lot of intelligent and in depth rebuttal on display on this forum (and yes, CCL). I also believe that there is a fair bit of 'self policing' happening on the forums, with posters putting other posters in their place for making inappropriate comments. Hagar, I hope I am not being presumptuous here, but I think you can attest to that? My view is that if you are willing to post an unpopular and inappropriate view point that you should also be willing to be slapped down.

I feel very strongly that it is unfair to dismiss posters in CCL as bitter and venemous kids just because a number of them now have a less than favorable opinion of Lleyton. I am one of those that are at that crossroad and am presently battling with the question of how big of a Lleyton fan am I still? (I will keep my findings to CCL and leave them out of LLL, I promise).

One last thought, I can completely appreciate that most posters here in LLL want to move on and are ready to embrace the new Lleyton as well as Bec and I am hopeful that things will gradually settle down here.

I'm off to CCL now to check in with the kids ;) I'll try not to be too venemous but I do have some strong views on LL these days :devil:

I just say that LLeyton & Kim was a much more private relationship than Lleyton & Bec. Nobody is his/her right mind will disagree with that.


Apparently I'm not in my right mind either. :lol:

Okay you know what, I'll just edit the sentence. Honestly this is why I've posted very little on this entire issue since the break-up. I REALLY, REALLY do not want to get in the middle of this; so again I will simply just remove the sentence. Fair enough? The fact is it's true I haven't visited that place since last October when they broke up and I'm sorry all I saw were negative comments about Lleyton (except for a few exceptions who were usually people who post more here) as opposed to this place where I saw very little negative comments towards Kim. However once again I've removed the sentence and I really just appreciate letting the whole thing go.

It seems odd that someone who is defending Lleyton should be made to feel defensive in Lleyton' own fan forum.

I think the criticism was actually for the negativity about CCL and not the positivity about Lleyton... very big difference :)

edit: Which isn't to say that I don't agree with Virgil on the issue ( and I'm not even going to post what my opinion is) but I respect the fact that somebody who still frequents CCL would not want it bashed here.

As much as the Lleyton/Bec haters need to keep their emotions out of this, those in favor of the relationship have to as well. If you're going to laugh at somebody ( and this goes for everybody involved in this war, yes even those of you who are underhanded ) at least have the courtesy to back it up with something. I'm sorry Christina, I'm not meaning to pick on you, because I'm not only speaking to you. I just hate what this forum is turning into. I may not be posting like I used to anymore but I used to like to come here from time to time and read what was going on but now, I'm just absolutely disgusted.

He just looks taller when he's not wearing shorts. And he's several inches taller than Bec, so that helps (although she's standing a step below him in those photos).

A few people did find her comment funny and if some can't handle the fact that not everyone loves and adores Lleyton then I don't see the point of such a forum! If she still had been cheering for Lleyton and hadn't had the guts to say that she was dissapointed in him noone would have reported her. Because to be honest I am extremely dissapointed with the way things have been going and I know a few people who also have and try to forget about the whole private side of him.

As I said in my post, I don't agree with her banning. If she's Lleyton's biggest fan then it's a shame she never posted anything positive about him in here. I agree that it's hard to draw the line and say ok you're not a fan, you're banned and you're a fan, you can stay but the line has to be drawn or else all fan forums would turn into GM. The easiest way to draw that line is to deem a non fan a person who goes into a fan forum just to bash/insult/criticize. It may not be a perfect system but none is ever going to be. If you have a better solution, I'm open to hear it, but I can't think of anything better.

She said she was banned because I'm in touch with her by e mail ;) She can't access LLL anymore so... :shrug:

I just don't think Fifi was here to "bash/insult/criticise". I think she was genuinly reading the forum [as lots of people who rarely post do] and that was just her reaction to my post
Let me ask you a question then... do you think anybody/everybody has the right to go into any fan forum they want and insult that player? If you think they do, what do you think is the purpose of fan forums? If you think they don't, how to you stop such things from happening? How can you decide who has a legitimate reason for posting and who is just trying to stir up trouble?

Angele

If it was repetitive, I would be questioning her reasons for posting here...but if Fifi has been banned for that single post, most of us here should have been banned at some stage

So it's alright to come into a player's fan forum and insult him once in a while as long as it's not too frequent?

For me it depends on the situation/person. Some people ( not saying Fiona) have a habit of making nasty comments that are always followed by either :p or :) . So I don't throw all posts with any icon into a certain category. Now since you're obviously asking me if Fiona was joking, I'm going to say that I don't know what to tell you. Maybe she was, maybe she wasn't, maybe she wasn't sure and threw in that emoticon to cover herself up. My opinion on the entire situation is this: I stopped going to CCL because the Lleyton bashing was over the top and horrible, and Fiona was a main player in all of that. I know I'm not the only person who stopped going to CCL because of all the nastiness. Having said all that, I think the biggest reason a lot of people are pissed off is because the same nastiness has followed them here. I know you're going to say that Lleyton fans have been just as nasty but for me, it's not the same thing. Just like I don't think that I have the right to go into the, I dunno, Juan Carlos forum and criticize his as of late lasckluster results, even if his fans are doing it.

I remember seeing the Lleyton bashing in CCL. It was worse there than here, but there was much more of it here...and yes, I do remember Fifi being involved, but she seems to have calmed down now. I doubt that she would have come here just to piss us off, knowing that many of us also post in CCL

Angele
02-26-2005, 12:25 PM
Just for the record, I have never, ever been in favor of supposed 'concerned fans' who happen to show up when things are bad and don't have a nice thing to say. There was a poster like that in CCL at one point and I had the same kind of reaction that most people here had to Fiona.

Jackie

Many of us post in CCL but many us don't. If you don't think she came here just to piss us off, why do you think she came here? Why do you think she reads the forum at all?

Also I think a big difference between CCL and LLL is that the CCL bashing started as soon as Lleyton and Kim broke up which at the time I sort of brushed off as ok, the ppl who were never truly Lleyton fans are now coming out of the woodwork. Over here, it just started after the shock engagement.

Maybe she is a Kim fan still trying to decide if she is a Lleyton fan. Maybe she came here to see if Kim was getting the same sort of bashing here that Lleyton was in CCL. If the latter was the case, she would have been shocked. I have never seen any Kim bashing here

I don't know if you read her posts in CCL right after the break-up but she certainly didn't seem to me like a person who was on the fence about Lleyton :o And if she did come here to see if Kim was getting bashed, I think she should of just happily left knowing that she isn't being bashed. Besides, from what I say from Fiona pre break-up in CCL, she seemed like a smart girl, smart enough to know that her post in this thread was going to draw a negative reaction from some people.

I promise you that if she had given any indication that she was a Lleyton fan, the reaction to her post would not have been the same. If she'd been here cheering through-out the Australian Open, nobody would have freaked out.

Look at the situation: You have a person who's been posting, in another forum, horrible and nasty things about Lleyton for a little while. Then that same person comes to Lleyton's thread and starts writing negative posts. People are going to be human and given the circumstances, you can't expect anybody to believe, or assume, that Fiona is actually a concerned fan. She may be, I have no clue, but she can't expect people to think that.

No bans are final, she always has the option of Pm'ming Amanda and talking to her about it. I don't think she'd have much trouble getting un-banned because her post here, although I don't agree with it, wasn't really grounds for being banned. I'd have given her a warning if I was the mod but I'm not.

And if Amanda won't let her in again, I'm sure she'd at least be more than happy to explain to Fiona why she banned her, although I can't imagine there really is a good reason. I mean I've seen, and reported, posts a lot worse than what Fiona posted and rarely were those people banned. And when they were it wasn't like it was right after my report either so I can only assume I wasn't the only person reporting them.

I don't think just one complaint can get anyone banned. Personally, I would have preferred that the banned poster had gotten a warning before being banned.

I hardly ever post on CCL. I imagine if I went to CCL and posted a series of snotty things about Kim and insisted that her behavior was tacky and her boyfriend is disgusting or whatever, it wouldn't be long before I was no longer welcome there, no matter how "humorous" I thought my postings were. :)

Well to add my little 2cents since I was the first to respond to the post. I think Angie captured pretty well why people were bothered by the post. I have to say I was surprised she was banned because even though I've never really read the rules; I just assumed it would take a lot more to get someone banned. A warning yes, but not banned. However that was the MODS decision so whatever.

Now as for why I was personally bothered by her post. I can respect all the people who talk to her and want to defend her or whatever but I don't buy for one second that girl even likes Lleyton much less is a fan. When the break-up just happened (so one can't even use the excuse of Bec or his getting engaged because that hadn't happened yet) I read comments on both boards and man did hers stick out to me.

She was catty about him here but since it WAS a board for his fans, she was more subtle about it. However when it got to CCL, boy did the claws come out. She was the loudest demanding any thread about him be removed immediately, there were comments on his being ugly, disgusting, etc. finally Kim got smart, etc. etc. I'm sure there was more but gosh I had to stop reading because all the love was getting to me. :rolleyes:

She seemed to disappear for awhile until the early rumors about him and Bec surfaced; then it was open season again. She got away with some not too nasty subtle comments because many of his fans here were so busy knocking Bec and hurling insults at Lleyton too, her comments didn't make a difference.

After all that I read her comments in the GM sections more than once during the Aus Open. Believe me she was one of those right there saying Lleyton deserved to be spat on by Chela because he is just so disgusting, etc. Once again came the comments of how smart Kim was to finally dump him, etc. Now someone wants to come to this girl's defence and claim "oh she might have been a fan but we didn't give her a chance?" I'm sorry but that's bull.

There was a poster who was a strong Nalbandian fan who came in this thread to congratulate Lleyton's fans on his playing the better match and winning, then came to congratulate him again when he beat Roddick. Now this person who clearly stated she wasn't much of a fan of his could actually give positive comments yet we're supposed to assume someone who can't seem to find ANYTHING positive to post, is? Okay then.

See I think what really just pissed me off that day is the fact that while CCL has had their MANY not too subtle attacks about Lleyton, removed every thread that was about him; not only are people here still supporting Kim but they still have a thread dedicated to her, so much so they've changed the title to be about her new boyfriend and have spent tons of posts drooling over him. After all that we have to still get some Kim fan who clearly does not like Lleyton coming into his thread and bashing him; bullsh*t. See even if I rarely post here, I observe pretty much most of the stuff that goes on and is said and I for one don't buy for a second, any defence of that poster and her comments.

Fiona's post didn't bother me because 1) I've been terribly bitchy about Ll in the past few months, but now that I'm (mostly :p) over it doesn't mean I should be all hypocritcal about those feelings and start bashing people who think he's off his bleeding rocker. And Jane doesn't like hypocrites, and I would be very :sad: if she started regularly throwing :rolleyes: @ me.

Umm, 2) Fiona has some friends/acquaintances here (Yas, for example, and while I don't know her very well, I think she's rather humorous) and actually has posted here before. In the Confrontations and convo threads, if I remember correctly. So it's not like she JUST showed up here out of the blue to start bashing.

Should she waltz in here expressly to make snarky comments? Well, no. But this is a public forum that we're all guests of, and everyone does have a right to their own opinion. Instead of getting upset and raising cane about it, we should all just try to ignore things we don't agree with.

Actually, I can dance, if it's a real dance with steps and everything :p Not so much the whole clubbing, getting your groove on type of dancing :p
OH yeah definitely! I prefer dancing when there are steps... I don't like clubbing anyway the thing I prefer is going to salsa nights with friends I know who know how to dance... And nothing sexier than a guy who knows how to move :drool:

Good Afternoon everyone. You are all probably asleep now :p
Marly, I just wanted to say how impressed I am with your restraint today. I was totally convinced that I was going to wake up the this being called the "Thread Name is in Detention" thread :p...and I suck at dancing too

LOL. I tried to get myself banned from WTA World GM a few years ago...just wanted to see how far I could push the boundaries without being a blatent dick head. It is actually quite hard to get banned over there unless you are a "hater"

They are scattered throughout the pages of the thread in between our discussions of the pictures and our totally unrelated conversations when we got bored and sidetracked

I thought Fifi was probably trolling, trying to get a reaction, probably bored that day. Whatever. She/he should be warned maybe not banned, who knows? I've never gone to a fan forum to put the fans or player down, that's just wrong. Although, one thing I've seen that I like about us here is we don't bash the other players, but in other fan forums they do.

I like GM because supporters & haters can talk together, and I guess agree to disagree. I don't get offended there when not everyone loves Lleyton as much as I do. So what?

For all of us fans of Lleyton on LLL, it would be great if we could freely give our opinions on everything, you know - Bec, Kim, or whatever, without worrying it will upset anybody.

Another week before the DC - - but I won't get to see it! :sad:
I'm sure we'll have some great pics by then, though! :wavey:

And Todd Woodbridge appears to be improving with age :) Very nice ;)

Thanks for the pics. I love the Aussie warm-up suits and that his name L.Hewitt is on the pants. He looks so good. Easily the best looking guy in the photos.

LMAO at that one picture of Lleyton shaking hands. He's got a new necklace...is it a "B" similar to the the huge "L" that Kim used to sport around her neck? :lol:
