    I'm voting for Zets, because his avatar has mystery in it, and also because I hope that in return he won't take vacations at crunch time.

    Before I vote, I need to know who SOBAD's avatar represents: is it SOBAD himself ?

    I have the same question about PHIL!

    no phil's isn't his-it's from a blog or smth.
    I doubt sobad's it's his also since he's very shy of the camera.

    Oscar gets my vote. You've got to be "King of the BadA$$es" to have a fuzzy stuffed unicorn as your avatar.

    ^^ DUDE!!! Winning this 2007 award is water under the bridge for you, please accept it. The good news is, there's a bunch of categories with nomination vacancies, look at the master thread "2007 Awards". If you can build a solid case for yourself as a racquet ambassador of the forum within the next few minutes in that thread, you might be voted on very shortly.

    I've always thought that it was the guy who shot all those people at Virginia Tech.
    The avatar appeared soon after the shootings, and seems to physically resemble the shooter.

    I've also wondered why anyone would choose such a person for an Avatar.

    Well my post couldnt go through because I think the "ATTN SoBad" thread was deleted before I could submit, so Im going to paste it here, in reply to Rickson stating more or less that- he now thinks SoBad is weird and a character but we'll just have to deal with it-:


    Quite a reversal of thought, rickson. If you had came to those senses earlier you wouldnt have had to make a big deal out of him putting himself in the polls (10 nominees each...) and being rude to him.

    After reading all your posts about this, the main flaw in your statements is thinking that he necessarily wants to win any or all of those polls. I cant exactly speak for him but I think it has been pretty obvious to me that he just meant to be quirky and humorous as he usually is, and added himself, not expecting to win at all. Again, youd have to vote for him... so its fairly simple in that you wont vote for him but rather in the individual you think deserves to win. I dont see ANY reason at all to get so offended by him doing that unless there were 10 people who all had a legitimate shot at getting enough votes to win. And really its just some poll with hardly any meaning whatsoever unless there were some sort of prize involved. I also havent seen any posts of his that people can be so sensitive about but I havent seen them all I guess. His charts on the players and the therapy "clinic" are all in good fun and, again, I thought that was obvious, but some are taking it seriously. (And I really thought I was very defensive, but I guess there are people who are more so to react this way to an internet thread)

    It just has really annoyed me with all the comments about this, and I cant not say anything about it. I dont want to get you or anyone mad at me now, but it just really needs to stop. This just shouldnt be an issue at all lol

    TonLars may I offer you some friendly advice? I believe it has been stopped - the Mods have deleted the thread which is their little way of saying it has violated the TW guidelines. To continue the discussion on another thread will no doubt not put you in the best light. You may wish to edit your post, or not...whatever...only trying to help. I have bigger issues at the moment like VCR shopping four days before Christmas. Arrgh!

    As it should have been deleted. But, without saying what needs to be said. I had something to say about it that I think needed to be said. By simply deleting it does not get the points across or why it needed to be deleted. Also, it would be best for those people to issue him an apology. I dont see why I wont be 'in the best light' considering that thread was deleted, but if anyone wants to start something with me for bad reasons than so be it.

    By "bad light" I'm referring to continuing the discussion in this thread TonLars. We all have something that needs to be said really. I'm glad the thread was pulled but I don't think there will be any apologies forthcoming. I am still waiting for an apology from a nasty that happened about seven or eight months ago - time to let go bud.

    You can probably tell I dont 'let go' easily :) People tell me I should have went to become a lawyer

    Apology or not, It needed to be said by someone and I decided to stick up for him. Also, I didnt spend that time writing the post only to not have it posted since the thread was pulled:)

    I just noticed on his avatar Federer makes a funny face. I've never seen Federer do that face before. It must've been sniffing, gesturing or other captured moment.
