"I applaud them for that, I honestly do. They fought for what they deserve and they got it. On the other hand I think that our men's tennis world, ATP world, should fight for more because the stats are showing that we have much more spectators on the men's tennis matches. I think that's one of the reasons why maybe we should get awarded more. Women should fight for what they think they deserve and we should fight for what we think we deserve... I have tremendous respect for what women in global sport are doing and achieving. Their bodies are much different to men's bodies. They have to go through a lot of different things that we don't have to go through. You know, the hormones and different stuff, we don't need to go into details... I have had a woman that was my coach and that was a huge part of my tennis career. I'm surrounded by women. I'm very happy to be married with one and to have a child. I'm completely for women power"
So SB Nation (Sackless and Ballless Nation) is firing up the hot take machine.
I know, this tennis player should not have said this. Two reasons, one he is a tennis player, two dude, you play fucking tennis... as a job. I forgot tennis was a sport until I started writing this. We don't care about tennis or your horribly misspelled name.
What was the least surprising tidbit here, the first time I hear a tennis player speak in 10 years and he is not talking about tennis.
The thing I wanted to get into was all the butt hurt around the internet about his comments. Look at what he said. Tennis players should be paid for how many people watch and attend the game. That is literally what he said. Maybe not literally, but if you read all of that bullshit again, he clearly says that. No where did I see him say Men are better then women and thats why Men should get more money. Just read the fucking quote people. Stop with the daily outrage. I am tired of it and if have learned anything about the internet, one comment is equal to the opinion of 12,000 people. On behalf of myself and 12,000 others, I would like everyone to put a stop to the petty, pc police reporting that has infected our news cycle.
Do people remember a time before this? When instead of reading, listening, and watching reports of stupid people doing offensive or stupid things every day, we just assumed that out there somewhere in the galaxy, right then at that precise moment, someone stupid was doing something stupid and/or offending someone. Instead of gluing our eyes to the screen then hopping on social media to tell 10 people that the idiot you just heard about is in fact a idiot.
Chances are, the 10 people who have your post on their feed are in the same zip code as you. They get the same channels as you, they get the same regional news as you. So they already knew about the idiot and posted something about him 1 minute before you did. Does that stop you? Of course not, there are 9 more people who possibly don't know of the idiot on your screen.
In reality, that idiot your telling the small internet world you live in about is you. The idiot offending people is the idiot posting shit every 2 seconds on Facebook or twitter. Which just so happens to be you
Parents and people over 50 are excluded from this designation because they have not had the amount of experience that younger people have had on the internet. Therefore it is unfair to mercilessly behead their online personas since they do not know better.
Pretty disappointed with Sack and Ball less nation here, they do a pretty good job covering real sports stories. Ya know, stories that are about sports. Every time they try and do these social "pieces" it comes out horribly. What is the editing process over there? I have a better editor/editing process then them and they consider themselves to be a real "news source". The only way I would back down from my take is ya gimme 5 cents.
or smash my hot take sensor alarm.
or you could give me a job
Honestly I would do any job you wanted, EXCEPT be a writer for your staff. That is one dark cloud I do not want on my resume.
The funniest guy on the internet does not just fluctuate hair style and weight because he is extremely impulsive.
Fuck. OKAY I AM impulsive just deal with it.
