Facebook fans want Federer billed

A Facebook group calling for Swiss tennis star Roger Federer to become the face of the country’s 100 franc note has attracted more than 30,000 fans in five days.

The group was set up on February 1 following Federer’s Australian Open title win, with the slogan: “The greatest tennis player of the world should be represented on the 100 franc note.”

The free daily newspaper 20 Minuten reported the idea had the backing of former Sport Minister Adolf Ogi, quoting him as saying: “I personally would be happy about it. But I know that this is very difficult to implement in practice.”

According to the newspaper, the Swiss National Bank, the country’s central bank, is not considering the idea.

Die-hard fans on the group aren’t giving up just yet. As one member, Brigitte Jansen put it: “Federer not only on the 100 franc note, but on all notes.”

Were the group to be successful, Federer could convert his lifetime winnings into more than 587,205 Federer-emblazoned 100 franc notes – nearly enough to cover the floors of a 7,000 square metre mansion.

the group is here:

I hope they make them.

That way I can get a bunch of them and use them to heat the house.

1 Swiss Franc = about 70 Algerian Dinars...

so, can you really burn a note that is worth 7000 Dinars? let alone a bunch of them? :o

Just saying, I wouldn't burn a 100 dollar note or a 100 € note :shrug:

I think seeing Federer in flames may be worth it.

I am on my way to visit one of the projects that I support in Ethiopia. But before I left home yesterday, the Austrian Postal Service presented me with a stamp. It was a nice honor.

Congrats

But why would Austria do that for a foreigner?

Do they feel kindred with central europe mountain german speakers?
