Gimelstob our at Tennis Channel Armitraj in?

Actually, they brought in another Amritraj, this time Stephen. Stephen is Prakash's cousin and another former "pro".
“Stob has been arrested. Get me Amritraj !”
“Which one ?”
“I don’t care. Just get me any Amritraj !”

Stephen I never heard of. I have seen Prakash play a couple of times but never a win, if I recall. He played almost pure S+V so it was a nice change of pace.

I KNEW you were going to key in on that! Your virtue signaling is SO predictable.

Thanks for the link to SU's FREE uni--I'm going to sign-up for their free tennis team--should be able to get some free Kramers out of 'em--AND some tennis whites, which we used to get issued being on the tennis team in colletch.

Justin should apologize to the man he beat up and pay for all his medical bills. That would go long way in helping his public image. but I understand that might hurt him in the courts since it might make it look like he is admitting guilt. Justin should just settle with the guy out of court and pay him 2 million dollars to settle. and serve 6 month of house arrest would be correct sentence. NO jail time needed.

Disagree, he has an alleged history of assaultive behavior, his wife has a restraining order out on him for alleged abuse, he allegedly, assaulted an opponent in a paddle ball game in Venice, Ca., and allegedly used anti-gay rhetoric during it, and allegedly now this attack on his neighbor trick or treating with his two year old child and wife. He hasn't changed his behavior after these incidents, so he may need some more forceful sentencing then staying home if found guilty But, this is Hollyweird--with a long history of celebrities being bad-boys--starting with Fatty Arbuckle and more recently OJ Simpson walking after murdering his wife and an innocent bystander--with the whole world knowing it--and, OJ laughing in their face getting away with murder. The Hoolyweird criminal-victim injustice system, doesn't seem to be able to differentiate between real violence, and the fake violence/garbage they manufacture and peddle on the screen. I doubt JG has two mill in the family checking account to throw around for a settlement.

In theory, Gimelstob could be removed by the board itself, or by the 10-man ATP player council, which is led by Novak Djokovic. Yet the American No 1 John Isner – who is not only a member of the player council, but also a former coaching client of Gimelstob’s – told reporters last week that “I would still support him because he is innocent until proven guilty… I don’t think he should take a leave right now”.

Isner must has his head in the sand somewhere. In the US court system, there is no such thing as "innocent". You're either guilty or "not" guilty. Not guilty does not equal innocent. Not guilty means that there are "reasonable" doubts NOT to convict the SOB. That's it. In criminal court, that is a very high bar and the decision has to be unanimous. Otherwise, you will have hung jury.

ATP tennis council should be using "preponderance". That's what is used in civil trial. The defendant is found to be liable based on "preponderance" of evidence. In other words, if they think 50.1% that JB did commit the act, then he is is liable. Either way, the ATP council needs to fire Gimelstob immediately. Otherwise, they will have an image problem, that they are condoning domestic violence..

Agree with you generally, the alleged domestic violence against his wife didn't surface until the more recent alleged Kaplan attack--domestic violence is used as a political tactic--it all depends upon what the politics of the alleged perp are, whether the media features it above the fold, or it's swept under the carpet. Violence against a fellow suburban male is not a politically charged type of crime. Image wise, JG will only be fired if it hurts business, ATP is a business--bad boys--to a point, sell--Mac has done well promoting his past bad-boy image, versus a Pete Sampras, who is barely remembered by the general public. Mac is a house-hold name, Pete based on his abilities, should be as famous or more so. I would prefer to hear Pete commentating on tennis rather then Mac commentating on "art"--Pete would probably prefer playing golf, keeping a low-profile--but if the money were good enough I would imagine he might do some commentary at the majors--but, Mac is more recognizable to the chorus of TV viewers, and better connected to the decision makers at the TV networks who choose the "talent".

You’ve got it all figured out. You should negotiate a plea for Justin!
