There should be one about any thread concerning Argentine players turning into a discussion about doping.

Default Re: Laws of MTF

Am I missing a major law here, unless its somewhere else and not on page 1??.....when a player beats another player that a poster dislikes, the poster automatically becomes fond of the first player, EVEN if they didn't care/know/or even like him much before that. Quite funny to observe especially if it's the last part, cause you can see the different levels of hating. Now you can put that one with funny words.

Default Re: Laws of MTF

ok, wow. In the last few days, not a single law has been broken

1. Making sense is optional

No comment needed

2. The probably of a thread on MTF becoming about Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal or both approaches 1 with respect to time (Mandoura’s Law)

Which thread was it where it became about Rofa because we complained that it was the only thing the thread didnt have?

3. Speculation can be treated as fact, as can fact be considered speculation

What did Berdy's sign mean? Is Robby really a My friend said the crowd sucked, they are obviously the worst in the world.

4. Injuries are always faked, especially if the sufferer is Roddick or Hewitt (Deb's Law)

Ljubo was sick, riiiiight (amazingly, when Pimmy pulled out, not one bad thing was said. I guess its because he doesnt have a 6-2 record against Federer)

5. Supporting PHM can cause serious damages to your health (Julie's Law)

lost to JMDP indoors in the qualies

6. Everyone loves Safin. There are 2 groups of people, Rafa fans and Fed fans, and they don’t like each other too much. And everyone hates (or, at least dislikes) Roddick (Jenanun's Law)



7. (Insert noun here) is on the juice

Im sure i heard steroids about Nadal or something about Nalby being a fat, argie doper with the henman match

8. Lose=Choke

Again, no comment needed

9. Everyone loves BYE

BYE made an appearance in Madrid, but no one really noticed

10. Tennis coverage in the USA is a joke, and the commentators are all tools.

TTC apparently had coverage, but TTC and the availability of it (or lack thereof) is a joke in and of itself

11. You do not talk about the WTA in a positive light

Actually havent heard this one

12. Just because a thread begins as “A” topic, doesn’t mean it cant translate to “B”, “C”, and “D” topic. Also, most topics turn to slash and/or sex after the unimportant things have been discussed. I.E. tennis.

O God, EVERY thread did this this week

13. Safin= Top 10 killa, Whole ATP Tour= Donald Young Killa, Fed= Whole ATP killa, Rafa= Fedkilla, = Rafa killa, 5th set= Blake Killa, and Berdych= 5th set killa

I need to addend (sadly) that Berych=Rafakilla

14. If you make a post, expect to be criticized, flamed, and degraded by someone else by use of personal insults. Also, threads based on a quote from an idiot tennis figure head MUST be flamed to no end. Also, going off on off-topic tangents, namecalling, and use of the smily are good ways of showing that you have run out of bullshit to spew, and have lost the argument.



15. EVERYTHING gets blown out of proportion. An example is whenever a player gives an interview or says some little Mickey Mouse controversial comment, expect someone to say something about speaking OUT LOUD.

again,

16. Jerry Seinfeld and Chloe never lose an argument (Jerry's Law)

Cant lose an argument if you're not in one, 0/0 this week

17. Horrible spelling, grammar misuse, and other butcherings of the English language are mandatory. Also, expect to be corrected for every single misspeeling

YEEEES

18. Double standards, stereotypes, and generalizations are a must.

YEEEEES

19. Signatures must contain either a quirky tid bit of wisdom or a laundry list of the players you support. Quotes from random movies, TV shows, or other posters are a plus. Of course 10,000 smilies are firmly required, as is a cheap shot to one or more posters.

all over the place

20. MTF is a perpetual cyclone of the exact same ideas and thoughts and can be discussed ad nauseum and yet no one gets bored or leaves

Nalby is fat, Fed is God, and Rafa and Roddick suck

21. Infamous posters change their usernames as often Puff Daddy does his, if not more so

George Costanza

22. Tennis is rigged. It's even more fake than professional wrestling.(GeorgeWHitler's law)

I know!!! How much did they pay off Nalby to tank his semi?

23. Useless threads, random stupdity, and smily overuse is mandatory

So True

24. Good ways to earn vcash are creating threads that are either a quote from a person calling someone else out, a thread meant for bashing someone, threads proclaiming yourself to be the next federer when in fact, you eat bagels all day, or, more specifically, a thread that calls out Federer's dominance; each of these will elicit tons of posters from both sides of the issue, with flamewars, namecalling, and hilarity to ensue, while the thread creator swims in vriches

weve got a few multi-hundred post threads this week

25. Anyone supporting a tennis player should be assumed to have some kind of sexual infatuation with said player, even if they don't recognize it themselves. (Joe's Law)

actually didnt see this this week to be honest

26. All player's fans are called -tards. Fedtards, Rafatards, Safintards, Djokotards, etc. These radical groups of people always believe their player to be superior and any player that beat him is a joke, on the juice, cheating, ugly, fat, a fluke, and will never beat him again. Also, stupidity and bias are prevelent in their posts and signatures. And, anytime that anyone (but 99% of the time, Nadal) has been given any type of luck, Uncle Toni is behind it all with his magic wand.

The tards were out in full force this week

27. The number of supporters of a given player increases proportionally with the players' rate of success but the number of haters increases exponentially with the player's rate of success. Also, if a relatively low-ranked and little known player upsets [insert top-ranked player here], that player's bandwagon fills with haters of [insert top-ranked player here]

Berdych got tons of fans this week, and if Fena wins tomorrow, (unlikely) he will get tons as well

28. The bigger the 'i'm leaving' announcement is, the less likely that a user will actually leave MTF. People who do leave here never give notice, they just disappear. (Tall One's Law)

Cant wait for the AO

29. Whining and complaining are mandatory. Whenever a draw comes out, It is obviously fixed against Player A, while Player B has a cakewalk. Probably done by under-the-table deals and knife to throat backroom bargains. Also, complaining about the surface of a tournamnet months in advance and saying THAT is also fixed falls under this category. As are the conspiracies of that it is a clown era and whoever plays in this era cant possibly be considered anything close to the GOAT.

YEEEEESS

30. This forum is not a REAL mens tennis forum without a whole horde of separate threads discussing such earth-shattering topic as who's dick is the biggest, who has the best ass, best bulge, or who is the hooooooooteeetesssstttt! threads.

those threads are still going strong in NT

31. In order for one to be recognized as a troll, at least 50% one's posts must be considered some form of funny. The other 50 can be a combination of brown-nosing, bullshitting, posting pure crap, starting (or attempting to start) flamewars, or basically some other stupid act

RFK, no matter how hard he tries, is not a troll
