    I think Rome is a phony. He probably didn't even watch the match at all, and he rips Roddick like that. He buries the #1 player in America, how's the game supposed to grow when that's the best coverage it gets?

    Jim Rome is a dumb@$$. All he does is criticize athletes and gets his @$$ whopped on Television.

    Agreed. Rome is a complete jerk. I think Roddick was puking during the changeovers. This Rome guy probably saw the match result and the word "fast food" and took of .

    Is he sure Roddick wasn't just joking about the fast food comment? He's sarcastic a lot....

    I'm sure he wouldn't do that much research into, you know, actually check if a story was TRUE or not.

    ^^^ agreed. I dont trust those ESPN people at all with tennis facts. In 2006, right before shifting to FO coverage, one of the sports center commentators said "Federer never loses" really confidently. Pretty funny considering Nadal was on his Epic run on clay with a streak of like 50 plus matches :lol:

    that was funny.

    perhaps rome was just trying to be funny...who takes him seriously anyways.

    its his job to rip into athletes and they probably know it.

    American tennis will grow when Rohdick leaves. He is no inspiration for rising players.

    Jim Rome's a fascist who bullied his son out of playing football (soccer to many of you).

    It's always good to see tennis get some promo on ESPN.

    Those over here with a brain think nothing of the twat. The US Football community (soccer) absolutely despises him.

    I saw that before. I love that.

    He really did get owned. The little *****.

    Yeah, Rome's a hack. Is it really that funny to fill an entire bit with "[insert '70s tennis great here] never blamed a loss to [insert '70s tennis great here] on a [insert fast-food restaurant here] [insert fast-food menu item here] binge"?
    He just said the same thing over and over. Wow.

    If anyone remebers Roddick had a semi final that ended late. Not too much is open in Indy late night so his only option was fast food. The meal didn't agree with him because he doesn't really eat fast food too often thus the upset stomach, and throwing up on a change over. Jim Rome should really do some research so he has a clue as to what he is talking about.
