L.A.R.F.eV.

A new organisation has been formed, the League Against Roger Federer. This organisation is intended to fill a gap and aims to represent those that are a little fed up with hearing, reading or being told how marvellous Roger Federer is. As an example, the LARF will be organising a protest against the incessant coverage provided (or forced upon us) by the media that have today given updates on the progress of the now some hours old Federer daughters - the League does not object to the daughters in any way but has no wish to listen to progress reports on an hourly basis.

If you also feel cheesed off with listening to this drivel then take action! Become a paid up a member and you are automatically entitled to a decennial newsletter and a free "I'm having a LARF" button badge so you can display your allegiance.

Unfortunately, whilst sitting in a bit of a traffic jam and wanting to listen to the news I was channel-hopping for a few minutes - every station was blathering on about the Federer twins - nothing against the chap personally nor his daughters but I'm not interested in the reports.

I did the only decent thing possible, switched a CD on instead :-)

The Jackson drama has taken a bit of a twist over the last 48 hours:

Re: L.A.R.F.eV.

Do not get me wrong, I am not a big fan of Fedex as he employs his famous "chip 'n' charge" technique in tennis. I mean chip (slice) and charge (topspin). I have lost quite enough of amateur tennis matches here in Switzerland as his style seems to be embraced almost everywhere by Swiss tennis players. They cut the ball and it is so irritating for someone like myself who loves playing topspin and hardly ever uses slice. But lets face it... I have nothing personal against the man. He is humble, succesful, tennis genius (from other thread as some put it ), he is Swiss (that counts too) and is blessed by having twins

I wish him good luck and I do not really feel overwhelmed by latest news about his daughters arrival. There was just a short coverage on CNN I saw and besides that I can enjoy my TGIF

Hey, when you only have one sport hero, what else can you do? (Unless Bertarelli counts...)

I guess it was just a matter of time until there was a scandal involving both MJ and TX.

And you said that you know nothing about sport. Eurosport may be knocking on your door any moment.

There's something contagious about the man. Every time I think of him I end up in tears.

Yes, and as we've found out on another thread, there's the entire Alinghi team. Well, one or two of them anyway, it's a start..
