I'm not thinking it will cause Roger any trouble...I think they just wanted to bring a famous face to the story...

Really? :lol: I mean, what does this has ANYTHING to do with him, then? :rolleyes:
I thought it was something related to Mirka's dad, though.

It's sad journalists seem to be only worried about selling papers these days. :rolleyes:

Blick is not exactly a reliable newssource and that's putting it mildly and to call them 'journalists' is giving them a bit too much credit for what they do for a living.

My attempt at translating:
Sex, Yacht, Brothers
Nasty poker around Federer

How much did the father of Federer's girlfriend know?

Some people (I'm guessing that they used the father of Federer's girlfriend) misused Federer's name for an online pokergame.


Do you have a link to an article, mirkaland?

I have a question: What is Reingelegter? I don't know that word.

Castafiore
10-26-2005, 02:08 PM
Reingelegt?

Erm...maybe some of the native speakers can give you a good English word for it but I would say the word 'fooled' comes close.

Reingelegter Professor
= They set up a scheme, a trap and the professor fell for it.

Without the word "Federer" there would be no story. This way at least, people will pick up the magazine (and promptly discard it, hopefully).

Nice to see trash-bin journalism is worldwide. I thought it was just an American/British thing.
