At a certain point - and I'd say, some two friggin' years after it happened is surely close to that point - it gets tiresome and lame. I don't mind my favs being made fun of at all, but one should expect folks to be a little more creative.

It depends on how you look. If you merely look at his RESULTS, you are spot-on. However, if you have followed him closely during his career, you cannot close your eyes that his game is indeed in decline. He isn't the player he was during his prime (2005 - 2007) anymore, even if his results are still very decent.
