Are people on Murraysworld too sensitive?

Quote

Actually no, Joe - it wasn't.  It was a general comment.  What makes me laugh, is here we are - a bunch of alleged adults, on a Forum, and all I can hear is people who shout the loudest, wanting to be heard.  Hurling insults back and forth, and hoping to score points - or being chummy, chummy when the mood suits.

Andy doesn't shout very loudly.  He goes about his business, quietly, and tries to be the best he can be, through sheer hard graft and determination. Sometimes his performances are not what we want?  Can you imagine how those bad performances feel to him? 

Maybe I'm missing something - maybe I'm guilty of wanting things too nice.  However, like you - I'm entitled to voice my opinion on here.

I just think most of the negative posts are absolutely clueless though, that's why a lot of them are annoying. Always making negatives posts like that also seems highly unappreciative of Andy as well, like you don't really value or understand him as a player.

My view is that we're all entitled to our own opinions, but that doesn't mean we're entitled to our own facts.  It's my experience that people who confuse the two are also least likely to give others the benefit of the doubt.   A dangerous combination.

I'm not advocating a group hug.  We are all different, and we all have our own opinions.  However, it is very clear to me that there are people on here who just want to stir the ****.  Let's not give them the satisfaction.   It may just be a forum, but that's not the point.

Everyone tells me I am far too sensitive on Andy's behalf and imagine all the Sky and BBS reporters and media to be against him. I was interested to read in his autobiogrpahy that in fact he quite often feels the same way. I think they are exceptionally harsh on Andy and he is the least deserving of that treatment as he works hard, is a nice guy and is a good example for young people. In many ways he is exceptional - I like the quote from whatsisname off  Gavin and Stacey about Andy - he said he takes what he does (ie tennis) incredibly seriously but himself he doesn't take seriously at all. I think that is accurate and exactly why I like Andy because it is so unusual in a sporting superstar.

If the whole membership of Murrays World met under one roof, what a lively event that would be.   I suspect the dynamics would change considerably.

I'd be owning Gangsta in a tennis match.

Predictions

A fight between the fawners and Boogers starts, the fawners inevitably lose to the might of unbiased-ness from Boogers.

Gangsta slags someone off. A screaming match ensues.

Laundry tries to hit on Angie, but is denied.

Gangsta and Laundry take battle to the court. Gangsta wins in 5 sets 7-5 4-6 4-6 7-6 18-16
