I´m sorry Agassi fans, but he´s a sell out.

    It is amazing how some people are so butt hurt by his confessions. People are taking personal offenses on what he has done. Lets put things back in perspective; he is a tennis player, he didn't exactly sell Government secrets to the Russians, or embezzled billions of dollars of employee pension. If anything, his life decisions affected him and his family.

    I don't understand why some people are are so dismayed over this.

    Some people view him as a hero.

    Some people view him as a sellout.

    What's so hard to understand?

    Everyone has a right to their opinion.

    I'm in the sellout group.

    selling out is dangerous business.
    the crazy guy who killed john lennon, killed him because he thought lennon had sold out (after he had read the book the catcher in the rye)

    I think never before from the Tennis world have we gotten a bunch of poseurs like we've gotten in the aftermath of the Agassi "confession" to using Meth. The Royal Poseur award goes to Navratilova, who compared Agassi to Roger Clemens. Well.

    I was a Navratilova fan when it wasn't in vogue, when she played the role of the villain opposite the people's hero, Chris Evert. I could care less that she is gay, and I felt for her given her tortured career. I admired her work ethic and intellect.

    No more.

    It wasn't just the Agassi comment. She's been chipping away at respectability for a while now. Now she's put the nail in it.


    1) the details revealed of her private life don't reveal a giving considerate person, she apparently discarded her last partner like trash

    2) in recent years, observing her combative commentary on the air, it's really grated on me. It's not that she's not entitled to her opinion, it's just that she's frequently dismissive of her broadcast partners (maybe like her private life partners)

    3) now, the Agassi comment

    Out of left field. Makes you wonder what kind of relationship was there beforehand that she so quickly took the opportunity to pounce.

    Comparing Agassi to Clemens ? Lets see, she fails the intellect test there.
    Clemens was a starting pitcher when he took performance enhancing drugs, and that is alleged. Agassi ? Out of the top 100, the drug he took wouldn't help him crush any backhands, far from it. I wonder if Agassi's religious beliefs are what is at the heart of this attack.

    I'm done with Navratilova. She's an aging, self-absorbed poseur
