I've missed hearing one of these for a while but came across this on the Blackrock site. Its a podcast with a tantrum included :D . Got some other good stuff on as well, has a bit about Borg too.

I've posted the link if anyone is interested. Cheers :wavey:

I love McEnroe's tantrums. They make the senior tour interesting.
He still throws them, even after his "conflict resolution" commercial? ha ha
I figure the "conflict resolution" commercial was a pay-off from the network to Mac. Mac agreed to continue telecasting and the network agreed to let him continue bleating that players, not the referee, should be able to decide when play must be resumed.

(Maybe all this is agreed-upon here, but I'm real new.) And the two main questions that keep returning to my mind to ask Mac, about his tantrums, are: In what sport do players get to decide individual calls? And, why do you think no professional tennis players AFTER you, John, have followed your wonderful example, and argued line calls ad nauseum?

McEnroe's tantrums rocked, especially at Wimbledon back in the day!:):worship:
