Hi everyone. My first poll here, but I think it's important.
Now, everyone has, within the bounds of common courtesy and decency, the right to write and post what they wish, and I wouldn't want to suggest otherwise. But here's my beef....
We seem to have introduced "The Tradesman" nickname for Andy into the forum. Personally, I find it a mildly insulting reference to the genius of one of the greatest tennis players in the world, and one of the most successful British athletes of all time. The reigning Olympic, US Open and Wimbledon champion a "tradesman"? I just don't get it.
Would we call Usain Bolt, or Tiger Woods, or Bradley Wiggins a "tradesman"? Somehow I don't think so.
When I saw the thread title "Cincinnati QF: Andy 'The Tradesman' Murray vs Tomas 'Twitter' Berdych!!" it doesn't resonate to me at all. To be honest, it grates just to read it.
I reckon that others feel the same way. On the other hand, perhaps the majority don't really mind, so let's find out with the poll.
Thanks for voting
